I checked two indicators ADX and Stochastic (standard one...

Hi All, Just wanting to get some more information regarding how people on this forum calculate the amount of leverage used on a given EA. No matter your appetite of risk I'm genuinely interested. As a rule of thumb after back-testing the EA I simply look at the absolute draw down figure and ensure...

I have corrected all the warnings except this one below. Usually the void function doesn't require a return operator, so how do I add the if statement and extra pair of { } to the order close as the return value needs to be checked according to the meta editor. (post 600 build) void...
