Hi, I'm trying to call an external function and I need to know about the current directory. The directory from MetaTrader installation. Is there a function to get it? Thanks.
I have been curious about this subject, and I'm interested in hearing some educated opinions on the matter: Curve fitting is the major pitfall of optimization - anyone who has tried to move on to forward-testing knows this. The way I try to avoid curve fitting is by optimizing on one length of time...

I want to send some data to a web page from a custom indicator. I don't need a post request, a get will be enough, so I would just need to get a web page. Is it possible?

Hi all, I'm using the LiborderReliable routines on the advice of (I think it was) forum member "7Bit"... so far it's been a godsend, it's really helped clean up some nagging little problems with my EA. In doing some further testing today, I had this scenario... which may be normal but I'd just like...

A custom indicator I'm writing is giving me some problems. I've chopped it down to the attached code, and it still turns the entire chart (and only chart BTW) into a blue rectangle. e.g. EURUSD H1, max zoom in (1 bar per gridline), black-on-white, bars. I've un-installed MT4 & reinstalled it - just...
To the outside Windows environment. Can this be done ??
Hello, I`m just writing my little turtle trading EA here, the entries and exits are pretty straightforwards. I guess the main thing in the Turtle trading is choose your lotsize carefuly . The Turdle trading docs, says : N is simply the 20-day exponential moving average of the True Range, which is...
I am interested in developing an EA that would receive buy/sell/close/tp/sl signals from a remote server and execute them locally. I can probably program this myself with some effort, but I thought I'd ask if such a thing was already available. If anyone knows some code fragments which might speed...
I am brand new to mql, but have been programming for 20+ years. I have a simple question (I hope). I need to create a program that once a day does some algorithm, and generates recommendations. I guess it is like an expert, except it doesn't continue. Ideally this would generate and place orders,...
I keep getting this error code with my Expert's. What does it mean? I tried several brokers and it happens in all of them.    The curious thing is that after a few dozens of trials/iterations, the orders are finally matched. From this I can say there is nothing wrong with the code. Besides, I tried...

Does anyone know of a more efficient way to grab 1M currency data via an EA script? This is what I am currently doing, but I was looking for something more clever... int outputCurrencyData(int handle1, string currencyPair, int days=1) {        if(handle1 < 0) return (-1);        datetime...
I'm writing a code for Moving average crossover. The most basic concept. FastMA>SlowMA==BUY SlowMA>FastMA==SELL. But i'm having trouble in it. It's been few days since i'm having this trouble. It misses opportunities to buy and sell, even though the loop for that trade is executed. Please guide me...
I'm coding an EA (my first real one) and I'm stumped... Alpari (US) is showing 5-digit pricing (fractional pip pricing), but all of my calculations and return values are only 4-digits. This has a negative impact when "rounding" EMA values; for instance the EMA value of the previous bar could be 1...
I want to write a EA, I hope it can buy or sell every 100 point, and takeProfit every 100 point, will you please give me a ideal how to write it? another question, if I buy 0.01 lot every 50 point, if market no retune, lose 10000 point means how much I will loss? if I can afford it, I think i find a...
I had an indicator I'm thinking of coding, but I want to know your thoughts on it first. The idea is to use a 3EMA and 4EMA (or similar) and count the number of times they cross each other for a given timeframe. This should tell if the market is Ranging or not, because if they keep intertwining...
I am new to this platform and I am trying to find where my account information would be on the platform showing how much money I have in my account that can be used for trades. Also would like to know if there is a window that shows my positions and P & L in each trade. Thanks to anybody that can...
I've been busy writing some custom indicators, and now discover that when I want to add an indicator to a chart via Insert - Indicators - Custom, only the top 77 (or so - I might have miscounted) are available. the lower ones (W-X-Y-Z ones) are greyed out. a) Is this bug known? b) Is there a fix?...
