Anyone have any good starter guides for Meta Trader EA coding

 

You may already have these resources but if not here are two that may help you:

This link will help you find quite a few pre built indicators.
http://codebase.mql4.com/indicators

This link is a book or manual on the how to’s of MT4 code building
http://book.mql4.com/

The page forward arrows are at the bottom of the page. Just past the preface is the table of contents.

I hope these help you out a little.

 

I also want to learn MetaTrader.. I don’t have experience with it yet. but I have a good programming background and overall exposure to markets and trading software.. Do you want to learn it together?? In college we had “study with your buddy” groups that I found to be were a very efficient way of learning..

 

I am also new to the MT4 and I have to learn it…..because I manage a small fund and my employer uses this platform.

However, I have attached a screen shot of the setup that I am accustomed to and I am working towards duplicating it for the MT4. Of course if I can achieve that….my wish would be to allow others to use it as well. It works very well for me!!

In addition I have a trailing stop method that uses Standard Deviations of true range….and again….I have not yet gotten to the level where I can program it into MT4.

So if you find that the screen shot could be of any benefit to you and you feel like working on something like that, I would certainly be open to collaborating with the two of you to assist in bringing it to fruition.

I’m interested in learning with you both – How exactly we approach this I’m not sure.
Although the resources has supplied look interesting

 

If your question is really about porting your existing strategy/trading logic to MT4, I would recommend using the below as a start:
http://sufx.core.t3-ism.net/ExpertAdvisorBuilder/

this is reasonably intuitive and allows creation of basic strategies without having to write code. Once strategy code is generated, you can tweak it further manually – a great way to get familiar with the basics

 

really nice looking chart you have there. I would like to know more about it and also doing a little bit coding on mt4 and mt5.

and would like to share my stats with you guys, started with just a little amount of capital.

I am currently writing an adaptor which allows you to code all of your agents and indicators in the R language which is much more suitable for numerical heavy lifting than MQL. If you are interested let me know and I will send you my initial releases.
