The Cool Informer performs all the necessary tasks to help you stay up-to-date with you Forex trading. The Cool Informer uses an audio sound to inform when a target profit is reached (same sound every 15 seconds), it outputs profit for current day, current week and current month, as well as it outputs min and max values of spread. Profits always include swaps and commissions. For correct information, you should select at least one month in the "Account History" (default is all history, which is also OK).
Let us examine the information line by line from top to bottom (see picture).
1st line shows the target profit. If the value is not equal to zero, the Cool Informer will inform you when that profit is reached. It can also be a negative value.
2nd line shows current balance and equity. Green and red colors are used for positive and negative values respectively.
3rd line outputs profit for current day, current week and current month. That's super handy!
4th line shows spreads.
5th line show type of your account and leverage. Oftentimes, it is exactly the information you are looking for...
Now let us turn to the expert properties.
colour – colour for outputting the information, you can select any colour using a colour panel.
label – can be either a comment or a magic number. A magic is always numbers, a comment can have both letters and numbers. If this property is set, the 1st and 3rd lines of the information on the chart are calculated for orders with this particular magic or comment. That may very useful! To take into account all orders, set the property to "stream" or empty value (no blanks, a dumb empty field).
corner – the corner for outputting the information on the chart. 0 – left upper, 1 – right upper, 2 – left lower, and 3 – right lower.
profit – the target profit value upon which the Cool Informer will inform you using a sound. To activate, set a non-zero value. It can also be a negative value. It is profit in your deposit currency (money, not pips).
spread_set - a set of currency pairs in the format they are used in your MetaTrader. Use a comma as a delimiter. Avoid blank spaces.
spread_interval - an interval in seconds to save new values. As all EAs are executed each time new prices are received, actual interval may be more than this value, but not less.
Please note! All data is persisted to a file which is available in the Experts tab in the terminal area. To switch off spread tracking, you should set an empty value to the SPREAD_SET parameter. It is only worthwhile switching on for tracking spreads at the time when big economic data is released. Otherwise, spreads do not change significantly.
