In many of my indicators I record data in folders organised by brokers. I just 'improved' my code for getting the broker name. If I add the indicator, no problems. However, if I close and reopen Mt4, it crashes. Can't see the program, CPU 100%. If I delete the ex4 file, reopen Mt4, compile and add...
Well. Stage 1 of my MT4 life is complete. I have an EA that earns a good profit on demo accounts. But I think it's too good to be true as profits are directly affected by the brokers' processing times of OrderSend and, in particular, OrderModify. Am I right i assuming processing times are...
I have tested it on two brokers where I can manually open a new trade as "Market Execution" with "Stop Loss" and "Take Profit" options disabled. That's expected, but in fact, when I create an EA, OrderSend() function works when SL and TP parameters are used. It just opens trades as in non-ECN broker...

I was wondering what the change in the buffers is when you scroll back and load older data. I am guessing the pre existing indexes are unchanged and the new data is added to the back. However what is the maximum size the buffer can get? Is an event created? Does the event cause the start() function...

Hi guys, to be honest I don't even know if this is can be coded or not so some help would be appreciated... literally I have always thought that mt4's built-in function of switching to the previously opened chart using Ctrl-F6 and Ctrl-tab really needs another function to switch to the previous and...
I've written an EA that seems to be working as anticipated when I backtest or run in Visual Mode. When I first started trading on live data, I was plagued by "Order Off Quotes" errors. After much reading on the forums, I modified my code and was able to get this issue resolved. However, it is still...

Hi! I wrote new article, this time it's "Evolving Expert Advisers using Genetic Programming Platform". I tried to send it for reviewing but got no response for a long time. Do you know if new articles are still accepted?
ok for some reason i cant figure out how to check the closed trades price. I mean suppose you trade all day with dozens of closed trades and right now you ve got 2 open trades. And you decide to close the 1 of the 2. How will you check the last one order when there are dozens of other trades in...
Hi All, I seem to have a loop problem in Start(), possibly with return(0) statement(s) placement. (Hopefully the iBarShift function works correctly !) I want to display, in the same window, 4 TFs (say M1, M5, M15 and M30) of CSS display with 8 major currencies. What I seem to get is only the first...

Nevertheless, it does not implement all the needs of all developers in the world, so if you feel that you need some more custom stuff you can take...
