Hi, I try to trade gaps, but the gaps don't always appear. I would like an EA that would send me an email if there is a gap (need to be specified gap size) between the close of the previous bar and the open of the current bar.

Dear MetaTrader team. I don't like the new minimalistic style on this forum. Maybe a boarder here and there would not be wrong. Also a few pictures, maybe a logo or something may look good. I liked the old edit bar in the post section, the new one is a bit too missing.//z
Is it possible to show more indicators in the same subwindow? I.e. I want to have 3 or 4 stochastics in subwindow 1. Is this possible and if yes, how do I do this?
I hope anyone can help me. I try to add an additional MovingAverage to the usual Stochastics but the last two MA's (buffer 4 & 5) do not show up in mygraph. Probably I do something wrong with the buffers. Could anyone tell mewhat I am doing wrong? Thanks in advance. #property...

I'm seeing some very odd behaviour while doing a backtest. There is a large disconnect between my Balance and Equity values. There was a trade to buy 35.1 lots of EURUSD at 1.37321 and the trade later exited at 1.37412, for a profit of 9.1 pips * 35.1 lots * $10/lot/pip = $3194.1 which shows up...
