Hi all, I have just started trading an ea on my live mt4 account through ic markets. In the demo account and strategy tester the ea worked as expected with stop loss taking effect as soon as the position moves in my favour, rather than waiting for the position to become profitable. I have read in...
Hi quys, I think.... how precisely identify close position on target price, or stop loss price. Because condition as OrderClosePrice()==OrderOpenPrice()+OrderTakeProfit() (for long) isn´t reliable code for very quickly market or gap...   I don´t know that OrderComment() by closed order is the same...
How does one determine the direction (up/down) of the current bar. Close[0] > Open[0] should work but Close value appears to be empty until the bar is complete. I imagine I should be trying to get the most recent value rather than Close. How can I do that?

Looking for a method to save the current Chart Template to overwrite the name of the template in use. Whilst saving the current chart to a template is simple I'm still perplexed at how to capture the name of the template in use.  It seems that there is no method such as "GetTemplate(ChartID)", as...
I've been programming and testing strategies in my spare time just for fun, but lately a problem with MT4 has made it impossible.  When I run a backtest, change the parameters, and run a backtest again, the second backtest frequently uses the parameters from the first one and so it gives me the...
Yo, I want to take order one by one. I mean when one order is open, he can't open an other while the other is still open. And i don't want that he can close an order until a few time has spent between the order open time and one hour (by exemple) So i wrote a code and It seems It works only for the...

So, I just wanted another set of eyes on this because as far as I am aware, in my risk (lot) calculation's, all I am calculating is what the pip value is in the term currency and not in my deposit currency?  Therefore, depending on the market I trade, the Term Currency pnl will be correct, but...
I would like to know how I can read the value in the buffer of an indicator attached to a chart from my EA code? Please note that I do not want to use iCustom function.

Hello, When i open a 1 minute chart in metatrader 4 and put it in candlestick mode it runs fine for a minute or 2. But after a short period of time the graph begins to lag. This lag begins with the newest candlestick in the chart not being updated as frequently anymore and thus not moving as...

Problem can arise if  a) network connection is not established via...
