My navigator window is now gone to full width across the bottom of my screen. Does anyone know how I can get it back to the left hand side again.
Hi, the bar chart in MT4 is difficult to see because the look is very thin. Stretching the chart will solve this problem causing a new problem: loosing the big picture. I have tried Heikin Ashi charts, but I don't like them. Is there any indicator that can draw the bars more wider? Thank you

howdy Is it possible to place a pending order in MT4 based on closing price. I know I can do it based on a price, but would rather not be triggered mid-candle. Is there an EA that allows me to select pending order based on closing price of a candle? cheers honkin
Hello, I've developped an indicator in mql4. However when i call it in an EA, eg: trend = iCustom(NULL, 0, "ATR Stop", 2, 0); bull_stop_loss = iCustom(NULL, 0, "ATR Stop", 0, 0); The values are different when i attach the indicator to a chart and when i use it in a custom EA. Any reason why?
what happens is that is that need make a program that takes an integer for example 1.345678 and remove the value of 78 or another example 2.346798 and remove the 98
