Hi and thank you for you product. Currently use with auto scheduler as well. I have autoscheduler set to multiple times. What I would like to do with Account Protector is set a "fixed" amount, for example $35. Once this is hit, AP will disable autotrading along with some other actions. What I need help with is, the $ amount ($35.00). Where do I set this so once MT5 is triggered to come on, once profit is hit, AP will disable EA and then AS will turn back on at next scheduled and then repeat. Hopefully this makes sense. Is the area I need to input "floating profit rises to currency units"? I would input $35.00 here so each time the schedule is set to come on, it will always disable at $35.00 profit and then follow schedule and profit?
If you want this action to be based on floating profit, then yes, you need to enter it in the floating profit condition. I don't quite understand what your question is.

Thank you for an awesome EA!! Will it be possible to add a function to auto take a SNAPSHOT of Equity at a time when broker server reset? This will be useful for props accounts which calculate the daily drawdown base on equity at start of the trading day i.e 5.00 EST. Thanks in advance
What does 'broker server reset' mean? I don't think this can be detected from within the EA. If you want an action to be performed daily, you can use the timer. You can also use various 'Daily profit' conditions if you need to work with that.

Thanks for the reply - imagine using auto scheduler you have multiple time settings for the ea to enable and disable (bottom two boxes in AS disabled) now with account protector you set $35.00 profit. When profit is hit EA will disable. Then AS will enable MT as desired time with AP monitoring take profit. I want the AP to take action at 35.00 each time. Does that make sense?

Yes, it does makes sense. The scheme should work fine as long as you set the DoNotDisableConditions and DoNotDisableActions input parameters to true.

Thank you again for your replies and product. I have something that is bugging me and I am unsure why it happening. Simple settings, I am running MT5. Account Protector has the following settings - Conditons: Equity rises <= currency units: 25.00, Actions: Disable Autotrading. As soon I switch to on, it
triggers the action. No trades and balance remains the same. Any ideas? Have attached screenshots for reference.

You mean 'Equity >= currency units', right? My best guess (judging by your equity snapshot), it's already above $25, so that's why it triggers. You should either set that condition to 298.23 or use some other condition like 'Floating profit rises to currency units' or 'Equity - snapshot = '.

I set the ea to close all trades and stop auto trading based on equity loss - I set a second instance to start auto trading after the broker reset time. However after the equity stop was activated the initial % equity loss setting and stopping auto trading needed to be reset after the broker reset time. Is there a way to 1. save the settings? or 2. auto install the settings when auto trading is restarted? Thanks

First, I'd set the DoNotDisableConditions and DoNotDisableActions inputs to true. This will preserve the functioning of the AP even after it triggers.
Second, I'd set GlobalSnapshots to true on both instances and enable the 'Recapture snapshots' action on the second AP (the Timer one). This will let you reset equity snapshots when you re-enable autotrading.
Then, your first instance could use some equity snapshot condition to do the main trading stop function based on the loss.

Hi -

With AP - is it possible to for it monitor say "magic number" or "symbol" and when condition is met, it will disable auto trading for the "magic number" or "chart" only. Meaning the other charts and EAs will be able to continue to function.

Thanks!

The AP can filter trades by Magic number and by Symbol, but it can only disable trading for the entire platform. However, you can run several instances of MetaTrader connected to the same account from the same computer. You could then run each EA in its own platform and have an AP in each of them to disable autotrading whenever needed for that specific EA.

Hi,
Firstly, I would like to thank the developers of this awesome EA. Is it possible to add the Hours filtering similar to AutoTrader Scheduler to this EA. If I want to run both EAs, they would have race conditions in Enabling/Disabling AutoTrading.

Many Thanks

Hello, I just started using this EA and I'm very impressed by all the functionality, very grateful to the devs! I have a question:

I need the bot to be ready to close all my trades at breakeven whenever my total floating profit exceeds 100USD. So if total floating profit reaches 100USD (or more), whenever the trades reverse and floating profits get to 0, bot closes all trades. I see there is the "profit value (points) to set SL to breakeven" in the main panel, but it looks like this is on a trade per trade basis.

Is there any way to do this based on combined floating profits?

So the bot only closes all trades if total floating profits exceed 100USD and then reverse to 0, not if one single trade does, close that one trade.

Thank you!

At best, it can close an order if the trader places it and it breaks the set rules.
