When you set TP and SL, say for a buy order, should it be Bid +/- TP/SL, Ask +/-, or Bid-SL Ask+TP? I know this seems very basic and to some of you it may seem obvious, but i'm not really a trader.
Ok, so after developing what i think might be a somewhat useful EA and getting acceptable backtest results, I'm ready for forward testing with a demo account. There is only one problem, the EA is not trading at all, even when conditions are met where it should trade. I'm using vista home premium x64...

I've written an EA recently which does not seem to work properly. The problem is that it does not change variables however I wrote the change statements in the code...
From what I gathered so far, most of you are expert advisor designers seeking to build the most efficient EA so that you can sell the EA to the general public. In reality, however, that does not make much sense because, if your EA were to work so well, you would not care about trying to make a...
Let's take an exemple. I want to buy 1 lot of EURUSD. I have a balance of 5000 EUR on my account. I need 300 EUR of Margin to open the lot. The spread is 5 pips (50 EUR).

I am willing to trade a really good EA (under construction) has in past tests shown as much as 98% winning trades, in exchange for some help in optimizing indicators. I have a large collection of indicators that I have created to serve this EA, but I fear that my skills in indicators is weak. The...
Has anyone already come up with an indicator that combines RSI with MFI so that a person can observe them in a single window rather than have to observe them in two separate indicator windows? I've looked through the Code Base but haven't found anything like it.
