When I was testing several EAs on my demo account I realised, that I could not distinguish between the running orders. There were simply too
many orders opened. For this I wrote this EA. Normally I test over 10 EAs on one demo account at a time.
As you can see in the screenshot, there is one table with open positions. All orders are grouped by Magic Number. Now you see the opened
orders, the profit and the drawdown of each Magic Number.
In addition there is an option to connect the Magic Number with a name.
So it is even better to see how the EA is doing.
For this we need some preparation.
In the Files-Folder of your MT4-Installation you create an folder (Imports). There are 2 files:
- Magics.txt: Import every Magic Number, separated by ","
- System.txt: Import every EA-Name, separated by ",". Very important: The order
the EA-Name is the same how you put in the Magic Numbers in Magics.txt
Otherwise the EA won't display the correct Name to the Magic Number.
What else can you do?
- In order to keep track of your EAs you can record several information to
an external file. In Excel you can now analyse the various EAs
In the first comment you'll find examples of "Magics.txt" and the corresponding "System.txt". Moreover I'll give you an Excel-table to
generate the strings for the 2 *.txt and to analyse the systems.
If you need any help with the EA get in touch with me. I will be glad to help you.
