Attached is a script that draws trades (both active and stop/limit) on a chart from a statement file. Of course MT already lets you draw your own trades, but this script lets you see trades from a detailed statement file provided by someone else. There are two inputs, the name of the statement...
Hello, I just suddenly came with an idea that I will use a signal from one time frame (i.e. I will use ADX in 4H to determine whether market is in trending or ranging) to trade in 1H (i.e. if ADX in 4H says that market in trending then my EA will execute otherwise it wont work due to my EA doesnt...
Hello friends this is checkmail and am creating an emacross histogram and am almost done but am having problems with its coding, an simple possible error, due to which the indicator is not drawing bars.

I've implemented inbound and outbound Winsock socket comms between MT4 and my Java trading client via a few EAs, entirely within localhost. I'm considering running the MT4 platform terminal.exe as a spawned sub-process to my client, so that I can easily stop and restart it, if it is unresponsive,...
While recieving an update for MetaTrader 4 to build 229 I got the following alert. Anyone else had this warning ?

In an mql4 program (and in general) what's 'harder' on the computer: processing and if() statement, initializing a variable, or redefining an existing variable? If you had to put them in order from least taxing to most with special consideration to execution speed, how would you rank them? Thanks!
Hello, The following EA based on Moving Average works perfectly on EUR/USD H4 200-6, EUR/USD H4 200-6, EUR/USD, H4 20-6 EUR/USD and AUD/USD H4 200-6. The problem is, that trailing stop is the only thing which closes positions. The code contains an original closing position, but it's inactive. What I...
Hi, I came across this market profile code but would like to have it modified so that the following can be accomplished in addition to what it already does. 1) The ability to get the correct market profile for all the higher time frames 1H,4H,1D,1W,1M. 2) The input parameters in the case of above...

Hi, Could anyone tell me if it is possible to port an indicator's signal (arrow up / arrow down) from a 1M chart on to an offline Renko chart?
Hello: I am testing a new EA and I am confused about how to interpret the results I have got. I am testing two different SL and TP figures for the same EA on the same chart and the same date period; my results are: Test A: Total net profit = 100,30 . Profit factor = 1,43 . Expected payoff = 2...
Hi, Just wonding if anyone out there can assist. I like a few others on the forum, are experiencing MT4 platform crashes when running several instances on a VPS server. I am wondering if there is anything built into MT4, or other software that can notify us when such a crash happens, so the...

Does anyone know what would cause Label Objects that have been set to " " for the purpose of remaining hidden untill they need to be used, to revert to their default text "Label" when I add another indicator to the chart, or know how to prevent this ? My label creation code to create a grid pattern...
Hi Pros, Seems the ihigh[] could only give a high value of one bar. Is there a function directly gives highest value of 30 bars? Thanks a lot!

HI. I'm new to Forex, in fact I'm still in practice mode. The thing that first hit me about Meta Trader is how can I see open/closed and/or all current positions ? I've been thru the whole platform and am confounded as to how. Any body ? Thanks
Have some issues to get previous bar high price. I can not figure out how to shift it. int e; Print("Current bar for EURUSD D1: Time ", iTime(NULL,PERIOD_D1,e),", Open ", iOpen(NULL,PERIOD_D1,e),", High ", iHigh(NULL,PERIOD_D1,e),", Low ",...
Hello, I am searching for an article in the code base of this forum that I have seen some time ago and cannot find anymore. The article describes some kind of a file interface for orders. You can write an order line in a specific format in a textfile, and an EA would periodically look into this file...
Can someone please explain to me what the purpose of using a "magic number" is? I understand that it's supposed to serve as a unique identifying number for each order but isn't that same function served by a ticket number? Why make up your own..just call by ticket number.I know Im missing the point...

Hi! I wonder if it is possible to get bar prices (open, close, high, low) that are in the past (e.g. the 10th bar in the past) and that are not of the current symbol (the EA is running in), but of any symbol I want. I would like to get last weeks prices of a bunch of custom symbols (e.g. all French...
Hi, I hope I do not a double post. I want to write the last weeks prices of a couple symbol into a file. So with price = MarketInfo(symbol1, MODE_BID); I can find out the current price. Thats good. But how can I find out the prices of the last e.g. 5 bars? Note that I cannot use the predfined "Bid"...
I wrote this simple gold script to set a stop and tp on gold at Alpari for an open long position. I set the values to 1,000 pips away - it still won't let me set, even though it will allow me to set the same values manually. How do I fix this? #property show_inputsextern   int   Stop  =...
Where can I find the full list of changes on each build's edition of MT4 ?
