  MT4 bug report (12   1 2)

  Indicator timeframes (11   1 2)
Hi guys, So I run an indicator that I have written on the hourly timeframes and it gives me fairly reliable signals. However I have noticed that it often notifies me quite late because it waits for the candle to close, which it only does every hour. And by that point the price might be 20 PIPs above...

Hi, I was chatting with a developer and he has told me that MT4 has problems using multiple time frames in an EA. I use the following to identify forward trend and then look for lower time frame entry points:          StDev=iStdDev(NULL,PERIOD_D1,10,0,MODE_EMA,PRICE_MEDIAN,index+1);...

Searching for this mostly resulted in a slew of like-minded posts that went unanswered a year or two ago...but on the off chance someone has since figured out a way to do this (or knows for certainty it cannot be done) I figured I'd pose the question.

Hi I'm asking this because I've recently introduced it into my EA and found strategy tests now taking ages and wondering whether the increase is due to the interaction with the broker. I'm a newbie, so apologies if this has been asked before. Thanks in advance
