Hello dear all

This EA is a very nice piece of software to accompany any trader. Thank you very much for making and providing it.

I now have been experimenting with it for 2-3 weeks. I am overall very satisfied but I do find that sometimes the 'close all positions before turing Autotrading Off' is not always functioning.

I've designed the schedule to trade at night, so it the settings are like the screenshots I've attached.
But I do find that in the morning some trades opened by another EA op a seperate chart are still open and not closed at the desired time (04:30) (and in negative, generating drawdown).

Does anyone have an idea what I can implement to fix this problem?

Thanks in advance, you guys rock!
Check the Experts and Journal tabs for logs of what's going on. My only guess right now is that the platform might be losing connection at some point.

Discuss AutoTrading Scheduler expert advisor here. This EA lets you control the status of the AutoTrading button in the platform, effectively giving you control over how other expert advisors in the platform operate based on time. You can ask any questions about this MetaTrader tool here.

Hello, if I register a Mql5 virtual server and I sync everything, with the scheduler added to my local mt4, will it still work (on mql5 server, with my local mt4 closed)?

Thank you

MQL5 Virtual Server doesn't support EAs that use DLLs and Autotrading Scheduler won't be able to turn autotrading on or off on an MQL5 Virtual Server. I recommend using a VPS instead.

Good afternoon, this is a great tool and it works realy fine for me.
Maybe it is a stupid question but is it also possible to habe a Option to switch the Logic? So first to disable the autotrading and after that - close all opened position? Because my EA open new orders if the scheduler try to close them.

Thank you

Unfortunately, the Account Protector is an expert advisor like any other. If it disables autotrading, it can no longer perform any trading action (including closing trades) as well.

Good evening,

Thank you for your quickly reply. I am actually not talking about the "Account Protector" but about the EA "Autotrading Scheduler" I was just wondering - if I deactivate AutoTrading then I can still close the trades manually. Thought it would work with that too. Thanks for the information.

Oops! My bad! That doesn't change anything though as AutoTrading Scheduler is also an EA - it needs autotrading to close trades.

Hi, thank you for this great EA.

Do you know how I can extend the schedule to 1 month instead of just 1 week or better yet 6 months to a year worth of schedule.

I’d like to just manually schedule all the strong news announcements for a year and don’t have to reschedule every other week.

If I need to add this feature, how can I go about asking for assistance?

Thank you.

Hi,

One more thing, is there a way for the scheduler is set for off time instead of auto-trading on time.

I ask this because my trades happens all day long except few announcement timings.

Thank you.

There is no such functionality in the AutoTrading Scheduler. I will consider adding this in the next release.

Hi, thank you for this great EA.
Can you add condition equity daily target (currency )

Or
equity % daily target (% from balance) to close autotrading daily plz ?
I know I can use the equity protection, but it more simple and automat if you can add in thins EA.

for example I want de start from 2:00 am to 15:45 asian and London session, but if a reach 100$ daily the EA disable auto trading.

Thanks for help

You can set the equity target as % of a snapshot on one AP, which will close everything and disable autotrading. Then set up a second AP to re-enable autotrading and re-capture equity snapshot on timer. For both APs, turn on global snapshots via input parameters. This should work like you describe it.

EDIT: Didn't realize you are asking about AutoTrading Scheduer and not about Account Protector. No, the Scheduler isn't suited for that at all.

Version 1.02 of the AutoTrading Scheduler has been just released. It adds the following two changes:
  • Added an option to load the schedule via a text file (ScheduleFile). (@kryptoman)
  • Added a way to make the Scheduler to wait until there are no open positions (WaitForNoPositions) or pending orders (WaitForNoOrders) before switching AutoTrading off. (@fix)
Hi..
I followed the instructions on how to add schedulefile i used the regular text file but it not showing up... whats confusing is.... do i name the text file (ScheduleFile) or the folder that will contain the textfile? And do i just save it anywhere inside data /MQL5file?

No, ScheduleFile is just the name of the input parameter where you set the file name. You can use any file name you want. It has to be saved inside \MQL5\Files\ folder.
