I am quite new at this, so I plead ignorance. I am starting to work through the demo account. According to instructions in the user guide, under the charts tab, lines of pending or open orders with attendant stop loss or take profit limits can be shown by enabling the "show trade levels" and then...
Hi, Is there any framework/wrapper library for MQL4 to make life easier? I havent really been searching around much, but so far I havent seen any. In case there is no such thing, would anyone be interested to create one? For instance, a piece of framework library code for Bars could be like this:...
Hi, I just made a EA which seems to be profitable in backtesting (it opens and closes positions) but when i activated it in my demo account it just don't open any trade however all criteria are met. In the backtest it opens about 6 trades a day, but in my demo it has not opened anything in 2 days....
What is the best way to trade multiple pairs? Ex. I would like to trade like 4 pairs on the same account When running EA, I face problem like error 146, TradeDispatcher is busy. I believe the cause of this is that MT4 is single threading and EA cannot make more than one trade at a time? Correct me...
Hello All, I have a EA based on Laguerre and Moving Averages indicators, among others. In case of wrong signal I use martingale to help the account (with constant steps, incremental steps or Fibonacci steps) From my statistics the probability of a wrong signal is just about 2% (I used 10 pairs to...
Does anyone know of an indicator that charts the change of the previous bar (or several bars) in pips rather than a percentage? I really need this for a strategy I am trading. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Daniel
My system is in MLQ4 on metatrader and trades sweet crude oil futures. It does well in forward testing in the month or so I have run it. It does reasonably well in backtesting in metatrader. But of course the metatrader backtester is extrememly limited. I would like tick data for sweet crude oil...
can we get a price of certain time,such as D'2008.01.21 12:00' / 2010.02.25 10:10? thanks .
Hello, I wrote an EA. The report gives my the number of trades (n) and the total net profit (p). Fine. Now just for test reasons, I replaced 1 OrderSend command and 1 OrderClose command by 10 OrderSend commands and 10 OrderClose commands. The n should go to 10*n and the p to 10*p, right ? The n does...

Ok, so i'm now in the "sensitivity study" phase of my development, and i thought i'd use the "optimiser" in the backtest to help me out. Basically i'm checking for optimum operational modes of my EAs, (e.g. multiple orders vs single order, hedging vs not, etc). Instead of running the backtest for...
I have this code for the i-Regr indicator. I would like to integrate it directly into my EA so that I do not have to call iCustom() as it is very slow. It seems simple enough but I cannot figure out how to get last bar's value. Since I only care about the current value and last bar's value I think I...
has anyone created a slow stochastic indicator to use whilst trading with Bill Poulos's Forex Profit accelarator program? I can obtain the other settings of %K=8, %D=3 and slowing =3 but I note that the subsequent indicator is not quite the same as a slow oscillator as per VT Trader(which Bill...

Anyone know the best way to test what is up with my indicator ? The indicator appears to work but for some reason the lines on my chart do not match up with the values for those same lines when i make an EA to use that indicator so i decided to compare the values for those line the EA prints with...
Hi, I need to monitor other forex movements. For the time being, I need to monitor USD/IDR; SGD/IDR and EUR/IDR. Is it possible for MT4 to provide these forex data? If not where and how can obtain these data. Thanks
I am searching for a way how to back test index futures on a longer time period than few months only. I have found two replies to a similar problem someone else had, but the below mentioned history center of MT4 didn't help. My problem is: recently only Dec 2010 Future on GER30 is active and the...

hi, metatrader seems to automatically delete old log files from .../experts/logs/, leaving only the last five trading days. is it possible to configure it to not delete the old log files? i realise that i could write a script to rename or move the old log files, but it would be easier to just set an...

hi i have an ea that opens multiple trades (ticket_111, ticket_121, ticket_131,...), but the problem is that each ticket is opened multiple times, so i need a method to control the number of trades opened. an "if" statement would be the best. something like: if(ticket_111==0){ *open trade...
Hello all,I have been trying to figure this one out for some time now but am still stumped. When I open and close trades with my scripts, I get blue and red arrows (with a connecting dotted line) on the charts showing where the trade was opened/closed. I know why that is (because of the color...
Hi, I noticed that it's possible to incorporate Windows DLLs into MT4 (I saw the checkbox in the options menu). Just curious, what are people doing with this feature? I would like to have a second window outside the MT4 sandbox showing various statistical calculations and other data. Could this...
hello guys, first of all I must say you have a wonderful forum! My question daels with the backtesting mechanism in metatrader4. The smallest timeframe that available for backtesting is m1, but EA's in there nature act every tick... so there is any way that the mt4 tester will run a tics instead of...
MT4 or 5 are considered as "the best", but the only reason is because Tradestation is too expensive... ! ! ! Tradestation is HUNDREDS TIMES more powerful than MT... ! ! ! Besides, Tradestation's " Expert Advisors " can be coded in Easy Language, and then compiled in C # Here, there's not...
