We require a Meta Trader programmer to write an Autotrade EA so that our signals could be executed on our member's account without any input by them. The EA must allow the user to create a DDLT as well. Please contact us at hqhqforexsignals@gmail.com. Best Regards, Management. www.hqforexsignals.com
Is there a function that will allow you to do this?
