Is this really necessary for all strategies? There are other options for the modelling...

I wrote a indicator in which I define a single dimentional array. I want to give it a very long size such as  60,000 for example. But I cann't. MT4 accepts 2,200, but does not 2,250 nor above. Its timeframe is H1. So 2,250 is not so far as enough as we can be provided. Then I think MQL may have a...

Hello, If an EA is running on a certain time frame can I switch time frames or will this disrupt things. At the moment I am running an EA that is designed to continuously manage positions and re enter new positions if we are stopped out. Switching time frames seems to mess things up. Thanks.
Hi Guys I wrote an EA to just do logging of signals into a .csv file for the 1M timeframe. I tried running it by attaching the EA to a live chart, but the code doesn't seem to update the .csv file. My "my_data.csv" file is located in <C:\MetaTrader - Alpari UK\tester\files> I would really...
