Hi Guys, Just started working on the MT4 platform and there is something that I just can't figure out and its being a real pain. Each time I backtest an EA using the "Strategy tester" and I open a chart for it, the chart opens with a black background and white bars. Since I prefer working with...
I use a linear regression indicator (i-Regr) in my EA. Specifically, I use the slope of the linear regression. I define the "slope" like this: slope = MathAbs(1000000*(CurrentReg - LastReg)/Period()); (where CurrentReg is the regression's value at the current bar's close price, and LastReg is the...

Hey all - I've been working on a new EA, but am having trouble with the method of trailing my stop. After a few hours of frustrating work, I still can't determine why the stops aren't being adjusted. The basic principle is to buy once prices close above the 1sd bollinger band and trail the stop up...

My MetaTrader chart seems to be operating in the future. The charts are suppose to be in GMT, correct? Well, since I started a demo account with a new company, my charts show the last candlebar time being 2 hours after GMT. I just looked up what the present GMT time is and it was a little after 10...

Hi The MQL4 documentation states under OrderSend(): comment - Order comment text. Last part of the comment may be changed by server. What does "last part" mean?

So if in an up trend and the bar has above average volume for that hour or day and opens and closes high (Or if in a downtrend, opens and closes low with above average volume), I am alerted by...
