My EA reads and executes 2 file names: 1-Trade is opened, 2=close. After the EA is enabled, I have instructed the EA to look for existence of File "close" and if it also finds the File "Trade is opened" delete both files together, provided there is no open trade, avoiding possible execution and...
Hello, seems i can't think right today. I need to figure out a function which returns the current streak. (5 losses in a row or 3 wins in a row for example) Since the ordering of the OrderHistors() is not reliable (as said in the doc) the function i have is kind of expensive as it requires a loop...

Hi everyone, Maybe you can figure what's wrong with the following program. The logic of the code is to create a range of 10 pips where the low is always going to be the lowest price since the EA started and that the price did not touch the upper band of the range. Every time, the upper band is...

I wish to have an array populated with data for individual ticks! i.e. for each and every tick: Time, Bid/Ask price. This is easy to do if you create an Array, and just start populating it with the Ticks incoming and you create your own "tick database". The problem with that is you have no access to...
