He said: "Yes that's correct you can compile the mq4 and it'll work fine but I need the mqh file to compile to be able work with and make the changes".

If that is not true, does anybody know a good programmer that could make a couple of modifications?

Also, I assumed that if the code is openly given it is allowed to be modified at will. If not, please let me know.

He can surely make modifications to the .mqh file without compiling it and compiling the .mq4 instead.

I need 2 small modifications.
First I would like the trailing stop to work like the one on this video:
The example goes from minute 22:15 to 23:15. Its adviced to watch the video with automaticaly translated subtitles.
The trailing stop would move so to keep always a 1:1 ratio with the take profit.

Second I would like to switch to a second trailing stop once a certain point is reached.

Summarizing the 2 modifications:

1. Trailing stop that shrinks in value keeping with a one to one ratio with tp as the price gets closer to tp. As shown in the video from minute 22:15.

2. When price is X pips (variable) away from tp, tp gets erased and a fixed trailing stop of X pips (variable) starts to function.

I have attached a picture of how it should look like.

Im having a lot of trouble finding some one that can do it. I tried Fiverr, freelancer.com and mql5 freelancer marketplace.

Is it too complicated what Im asking? Is it possible?

It is possible and not extremely complicated, but this isn't something I would be adding to the Account Protector.

I recommend finding someone on Upwork to code that for you. Coders there are much more professional than on MQL5.com.

Ok... got it working. Had to add the other files to the Experts folder, as I saw on the discussion on some previous pages. It
is working, but I can't get it to reset the Actions... tried both true and false on the menu, but after it's triggered, the Actions are gone.

Setting DoNotResetActions to true should do the trick for you.
