I've recently been backtesting a system on the downloaded data from Metaquotes and a question arose that has been troubling me. Since the inception of the EURO was roughly speaking around 1995 and the subsequent pairing of EUR/USD in the early 2000's (please excuse any slight inaccuracies here),...

Hello,  not sure if I'm posting on right place...  I have a problem with one of my favorite custom indicators.   This multiple MA indicator is drawing a vertical line at the current bar!  All this started to happen after the infamous ver 600 MT4 update that messed up a lot of thing for many people...
Hi, it's an old problem but still not really solved. Recently I was in trouble with a new broker and its Gold-price: 1234.340! For a 5-digit-broker 1 Gold-pip should be 0.1 = 10 Points now here 1 Gold-pip is 100 Point - sigh!! So I thought to calculate a pip (and digits) from the value of the...

Hi, what can you do against repainting of indicators? When you do a visual mode backtest of an empty EA and you drop the indicator on the chart, you really see how it performs (repainting or not),  opposed to simply putting it on a live chart (too slow to evaluate repainting). So if you have seen...

Good Afternoon, I don't like the default metaquotes properties on charts, especially the colours. I change this by using F8 on my keyboard to a scheme of my choice. It appears there isn't any way of saving my settings. Am I missing or not seeing another dialogue box that allows the settings to be...
