Thats why i wrote a function that calculates a wanted coordinate value into a time value at the horizontal time line displayed in the Indicator Window. That works great, but if...
How can I download tick data for EURUSD since Jan 2008.
Attached is an EA I coded, which does need a Forex account that allows hedging for it to be useful. Putting it online here for others to use is simply to give something back to this forum and as a way to say thank you. It is a "Trade Manager" type EA, not a trading strategy. It works as follows: For...
Note: So that we are clear, using the 5 digit MT4 system, I call them micro-pips or the 10 cent pips to describe things. That is, pips means 4 digit system pips, micro-pips are the 5 digit system of pips. We all know that the ZigZag Indicator almost always repaints the newest line drawn. Often it...
Hello, I have IBFX and its 5th decimal. Why does MarketInfo(Symbol(),MODE_STOPLEVEL) = 0? Why does MarketInfo(Symbol(),MODE_POINT) = 0? Even when I am specifying point as 0.00001 with double it prints as 4 decimals. I was able to chat with IBFX and was told its because metaquotes defaults 4...

I've developed trading systems on other platforms for over 10 years. I had 12 years of experience working with Tradestation and I've used several other platforms. If I backtest a system in Tradestation, I can be 99% sure that (other than slippage, fills, etc) it would have traded in realtime...
Hi, I am new to MQL and looking through the book and I was looking at the code in the example for a simple expert advisor (https://book.mql4.com/samples/expert) in the 4th block // Orders accounting   Symb=Symbol();                               // Security name...
something has changed in MT4 for me with any EA attached, it makes a noise every pip which sounds a little like a telephone ring. there is nothing in the code to cause this. Can someone help me stop it ?

Hey there, though I am aware that there are lots of threads out there that cover this problem I just wanted someone to have a quick glimpse on my particular approach to the "moving SL after price has moved XY pips in my favor" and give me a hint as to why it is not working properly. Not working...

I am running my EA on Demo, but I am unable to make any progress at the point where the existing market order is instructed to close. The instructions from the strategy are being generated correctly at the start of each new bar and my various alerts are as follows: Number of orders=1 Ticket=2426438...
Would it be possible to create an open-ended rectangle i.e. a rectangle without the second time coordinate or an raylike infinite time projection? I originally thought about creating two horizontal lvls and filling the space in between with a background color but since that isn't possible in mq4 I...

I have written an EA and get the most mystifying results from a piece of code that i have written. It works well with Buy orders but refuses to work with Sell orders. I have gone through the system code a hundred times. Even rewritten it - but the same un-explainable result keeps on happening....

Understandably, utilizing different Optimization date ranges gives different results. But how to figure out which results to use? Each different Optimization set gives different back test results. Again: understandable. So one takes one set, lets say from very long range ~ 5+ years and runs it...

Hi Everybody, does anybody know a good description of how to loop through minute values in mql4, way back in time, like 10 years. It should be done as an analysis of an indicator which means it should not be too slow. Thanks for your help, Jacob
Hello, I need your help. I have an Array called A[6] which has 6 values in it ( A[0] = 0.5, A[1]=1.0... ) . I want to transfer these data to another array - B[6], so B[0] should be 0.5 - A[0] - and B[1] should be 1.0 - A[1]. Do I need to transfer the data from array to array by a mechanical...
Hi guys, I have created a new MACD indicator. The MT4 MACD isn't standard, even though it is calculating its values (MACD & signal) correctly. Some say it isn't. The difference between the standard version and the one of MT4 is in the way each of them plots the MACD value. The standard one plots a...

Hi, I want to program an EA which is buying or sending a limit order at a defined time. Now my question: Is it better the EA is in a while-Loop all the time or is it better it worked with ticks? Or to say it in another way, does it change anything in a while-Loop, because I think the brokers...
