Otkat Pull-Back EA — Now in MetaTrader 5

December 8, 2009 by

I’ve done my first conversion of the MT4 EA to MT5. Although it’s not my first EA written for MT5 (the first one was AUD/JPY Wednesday 15:00), it’s the first one converted. I must say that I was quite pleased with the MQL5 and the whole MetaTrader 5 during this conversion process. The pull-back expert advisor Otkat doesn’t use any hedging or position pyramiding and is quite simple for MT5 to handle. While the resulting code’s size become bigger in the new version, the readability, along with some other things, is much better now. So, here is the list of new features for Otkat:

  • Better and cleaner code
  • Description displayed in MT5 when EA is attached
  • Proper types of the input parameters
  • Works properly with all timezones (this was also implemented for MT4 version)
  • No garbage code
  • Proper work with 5/3-digit quotes

You can get the code of MT5 version or read more info about the expert advisor.

If you find some bugs in this MT5 EA or want to make a suggestion regarding its functionality or what should be my next MT4->MT5 conversion, please, use the commentary form below.
