How to Read MT4 Log Files and Actually Understand Them

If you ever been using MetaTrader 4 platform I am sure at some point you faced some issues. As a programmer I know that any software can fail from time to time, but most computer programs are designed in such a way that they will print out error, warning or any other informational messages for the user so (s)he could understand what’s going on. Earlier I have wrote about troubleshooting expert advisors on MetaTrader 4, but another important thing is to know how to properly read log files to find the cause of the problem.

If you are one of those users who hit their computer every time they face trouble with any of the Expert Advisors, indicators or scripts on MetaTrader 4 platform, I am sure you’ll find this blog post very useful.

Hiding Stop Loss and Take Profit on Trades From Multiple Currency Pairs at the Same Time

Not showing your Stop Loss and Take Profit value to broker is fairly easy no matter what trading platform you are using. Simply you just do not set SL/TP values and no one will see it.

How to Program MT4 to Re-Enter the Market After a Pullback

Hi, Rimantas Petrauskas here. Forex trader and a programmer with 16 years of experience.

There is this saying among Forex traders “The trend is your friend until it bends”. I assume this means that when you are in a trade and the trend reverses you get into drawdown and that’s where things get messy.

But what if you enter the market only in the direction of the trend and only if it shows you signs that it will continue to go that way? In other words you would not enter the market if the price reversed and did not go in the same direction.

In this video I am going to show you how you can re-enter the market in the direction of the trend after a pullback and also how you can program your MT4 platform to do this for you.
