Hi I wanted to know if anyone has ever seen the above error. I have been seeing it for the past 3 days on MT4 build 479 but the broker offering MT4 (MBtrading) said to try here first as they dont help with MT4 issues. I was only able to get a picture with my phone because each time when i click MT4
Its code is very simple and is below: if ( OrdersTotal ()== 0 ) { Print ( OrderSend ( Symbol (),OP_BUY, 0.5 ,Ask, 3 ,Bid- 7 * Point ,Ask+ 20 * Point , "OP_BUY" , 0 , 0 ,Red)); Print ( GetLastError ()); } the code means send order one time . I have attached it on the chart some time and

Hi guys, i wrote this code in an indicator to show the value of the array and an moving average on this but the chart does only show the array not the MA. What is wrong with that? #property indicator_buffers 2 // Number of buffers #property indicator_color1 Blue // Color of the 1st line
1. I get the arrayX by the function--ArrayCopyRates();    and then execute functions of  "ArrayGetAsSeries(arrayX)" and "ArrayIsSeries(arrayX)" as order.    but the return of the former is 1 and that of latter is 0. why? 2.  how can get the maximum or minimum open price for the arrayX? 3. how can i...
