While providing an invaluable advantage to manual traders looking to control their risk and simplify their trading process, it also informs

Added topic Getting EA's approved by prop firms without the source files?
Hi, I've recently been looking to start trading with prop firms and I noticed that they usually ask that you send mq5 and ex5 files to get your EA's approved either before or after passing the challenges... Does anyone have experience navigating this

Added topic How to clone a terminal?
Is there a simple way to clone a terminal? I mean clone literally everything. I am trying to use two different terminals connected to the same trading account, but I want to be able to easily clone all the options and default drawing tool settings

Added topic Wrong value returned by SYMBOL_TRADE_TICK_VALUE_LOSS
Alain Verleyen once wrote in another thread that some brokers provide the wrong value. I think my broker is doing this. What should I do? Should I tell them or should I change my code to adapt to it? What happens is the EA calculates lot sizes for a

Added topic Terminal64.exe is crashing my new computer - Bad news and good news
Hi everyone, I bought a refurbished PC a few weeks ago and recently it started crashing very often (blue screens with different stop codes) but I couldn't figure out if it was hardware or software related and it was making me very worried after

Added topic SymbolInfoInteger(NULL,SYMBOL_SWAP_MODE) returns an impossible value not included in the MT5 documentation!?!
SymbolInfoInteger(NULL,SYMBOL_SWAP_MODE) should only return values from 0 to 8, but with crypto pairs on a demo account I use to test code, it will return 9...? I'm not sure if this can give a clue as to what is causing this but the symbol names

Added topic Does TRADE_RETCODE_DONE_PARTIAL mean IOC market order partially filled?
The documentation says:  Only part of the request was completed I just want to generate an alert if ever it happens, but are we 100% sure what the return code means? Even though most of us probably never got that error code and can't test it in

Added topic Question about when the tick size is smaller than the actual minium price changes
Hey everyone, If using a demo or the strategy tester , orders are always filled at the exact order price. So if your broker rounds all its tick prices to the nearest 1$ while allowing you to place orders with a tick size precision of 0.01$, then this

Added topic Are SYMBOL_VOLUME_STEP & SYMBOL_VOLUME_MIN ever different?
Are SYMBOL_VOLUME_STEP  and SYMBOL_VOLUME_MIN ever different? I have never seen an instrument where the minimum volume wasn't the same as the volume step value. Did you ever see an example where it wasn't the same? Do you think it's possible

Added topic Duplicate OnTradeTransaction() event??
Hello, I have an EA that uses OrderSendAsync() to send multiple orders in batches and I collect the order ticket #s with code similar to the below code. When the EA only sends 1 order, it's always perfect, but if the EA sends 2 or 3 orders, about 9

Added topic Can timer events and other functions run simultaneously on seperate threads/cores and create problems with your EA's execution?
I'm asking this question because when I trigger a function, it prints a variable's value twice in my logs, and there is nothing in that function that can change the variable's value, it can only read it. But sometime today, the function printed two

Added topic Need help understanding asynchronous function call...
Hi everyone, I'm trying to better understand how an EA handles asynchronous vs synchronous function calls. I edited this post to simplify my question since I didn't get any replies. Assume I have these lines of code in an EA: void OnInit () {

Added topic Problem with CHARTEVENT_OBJECT_CLICK, any ideas how to fix it?
If you have a selected horizontal line underneath a button and you click on the button while your mouse is over the horizontal line that's hidden by the button, even if the button has a higher OBJPROP_ZORDER value, the click's priority will be given

Added topic Chart stops processing new events and ticks. Does anyone know what might be happening?
If I let my chart run with all my indicators and EA, it will sometimes stop processing new events and ticks until I force it to get unstuck by changing timeframes. 1. No errors in the log 2. MT5 is still perfectly responsive (I can draw objects on

Added topic SYMBOL_TRADE_TICK_VALUE_LOSS vs SYMBOL_TRADE_TICK_VALUE_PROFIT
*edit: when I posted the thread, I was confused about the correct way to calculate position size based on entry price and stop loss price, so don't take anything I say here as truth, unless someone else verifies it in the comments.*

Added topic VWAP Bands - Can't figure this one out...
*edit: I figured out how to do it, it's basically a weighed standard deviation formula instead of a regular standard deviation. And it uses N rather than N-1 (unlike Bollinger Bands). More details in my last reply

Added topic How to hide indicator plot
I want to hide/show my indicator plot based on a criteria. If I set the color to clrNONE, I still get a pop-up on mouseover of the invisible plot. That's still the simplest way to hide the indicator though so I wonder if there is a similarly simple
