Thank you for your fast answer!
I think it is better to use an emergency SL for the time between the bars. Is it possible to add this in the code?

Hello,

I have a question about the Money Managment of this EA. Do it use the relation between the account currency and the pip currency of the traded pair for the calculation of the lot size?

Have a nice week!

Some problems with installation

I know simple quastions should be avoided on this forum however I want to ask for help in Ichimoku cross EA setting - up (I am using Build 646 version 4). The problem is that I can see it in MQL4/Experts folder (Ichimoku-Chinkou-Cross.ex4) and simultanoulsly it is invisible in Navigator panel in Experts folder. When I double click it in MQL4/Experts folder MetaQuotes Editor is not getting started. When I open it manually (F4) a file with Ichimoku-Chinkou-Cross is not visible, Therefor I can not compile it. Can you hep me with this?
I am rrally happy to work with this indicator. I have been using Ichimoku for 2 years and EA would be a big help for me. However I will believe in manualy set targets.

I think it will impair the EA's performance. Currently, the average length of the winning trade is about 40 bars. If you add such a sensitive close signal as SMA1/SMA3 cross, it will significantly shorten the lifetime of winning trades, decreasing their profitability.

But you are free to try. Please let us know the backtest results.

You would have to add quite a lot of lines of code to do that. If you want to do that yourself you would need to do the following:
1. Add a handle for each EMA.
2. At each bar, copy the values of the EMAs.
3. Check if they cross.
4. Close long if it exists and there is a bearish cross.
5. Close short if it exists and there is a bullish cross.

If you do not want to do it yourself, you would need to hire some coder.
