For example I want to have the ATR(5) of the NY Trading session from 1430pm to 2100pm. I think I would use a for-loop...
  no Arrow? (3)
Dear Forum, A quick question: I have an EA attached to 3 different charts, works normally, until it starts opening and closing many trades, but when closing, it does not put a closing arrow? What could be the potential reason of no putting a closing arrow in the chart when closing? Maybe the...

In the documentation it says that OrderSend() returns -1 on failure. But in the expert advisor example documentation here, it shows the following: Ticket=OrderSend(Symb,OP_BUY,Lts,Ask,2,SL,TP);//Opening Buyif (Ticket < 0)                        // Success :){    Alert ("Opened order Buy "...
I am currently forwarding testing my EA and I've discovered an issue. My coding seems to be having a conflict when it is trying to place multiple orders. Some times it will place two orders on the same market (double the risk) - Most of the time it won't be doing this though. I swear I thought I had...

Hi All, This works really good attached to 1M chart. It gives us the number of tick per min and then it calculates an average between 2 ticks in milliseconds. Any one willing to change this to get the average fresher? If we could get the average updated with a parameter in sec. For example:...
Hi forum, had it recently pointed out to me by one of our esteemed moderators (THANK YOU RAPTOR) That I writing my code such that my indicators were updating every tick. Have just found the time to start looking at this and hopefully re writing some code to ease load on CPU, but I am a bit confused...
Hello! I've been looking for a good thread about how to get the best quality backtest, but I didn't find it. There is a blog or something like that where I can find it? I get tickdata from some website, and I have imported this data into MetaTrader 4, but I don't know why, I can't test with this...
As the current version of MT4 does not support backtesting with real tick data, I am looking for a software that enables MT4 to do this. I am aware of the Tick Data Suite (http://eareview.net/tick-data-suite) and I am ready to buy it, but I would like to first compare this software with its...
Of course not I hear you cry!!!! So have any of you found a solution to this? I am using Dukascopy data, downloaded via birts eareview, which gives me a better modelling result. I backtest my ea to get the optimized settings, and then use these settings for the ea on my live mt4 account. If a I run...
Hi, I would want to know, if it's possible to call dynamically variables. For example: I create 3 variabless: string Var1,var2,var3 And I call them in a loop like this: for(i=1;i<4;i++) { print(var+i); } When I compile, i have an error:" var+i didn't declare". Do you have solution please?...
Nice to meet you. I am a software engineer. I resigned recently, and I have no job now. Fortunately I found MQL. It's quite cool tool and very useful programminglanguage.(But I'm not familiar with it) Now I'm focusing on some other trade project for commercial use. It will use indicator to show some...
EDIT:Whilst it seems to me that this Normalization used to be a problem, theexperimental test indicators and scripts below have convinced me that this isnot (or is no longer) a problem (at least with the latest MT4 and with mybroker). The thread remains primarily for the indicator/EA below, which...
In watching some MT4 related videos online it seems that there is a way to visually see MTFs while backtesting. The approach explained is to: 1. make sure offline data is available for both timeframes 2. start the backtest (M5) and press pause 3. File-open offline - select larget timeframe data...
Using MQ4 Build 509 If I directly subtract two time values mq4 gives 0, but if stored in intermediate variables the result is correct.  (probably something to do with the  way mq4 implements the syntactic sugar to make the TIME longs look like doubles??) Run following script for demo... int start()...
Is their a link or anything that can show me how to download an indicator onto my MT4 broker? Not been able to figure it out. Thanks
Does the strategy tester record in the final trade-by-trade results whether an order was closed by a margin call? In the tester results, I have seen order types buy, sell, close, s/l, t/p, and close at stop. But, I have not seen a margin call order type in the results, but that doesn't mean that...

Hi, when MT4 or the internet connection were closed, we have gaps in the .hst files. When MT4 or the internet connection open again, my indicator encounters these gaps. What can I do in the indicator source code, to make MT4 fill these gaps? At the moment my only workaround is to reload the...
