Re: Forex Strategy Trader - Beta version

Forex Strategy Trader 0.5.0.1 Beta

Release:    Freeware

Requires:    Microsoft .NET Framework v2.0, MetaTrader v4

This is an early Beta version. Please send us your feedback.

Installation

Please be sure that your system has the latest Microsoft updates.

1. Register an account to a MetaTrader broker. Install MetaTrader.
2. Install Forex Strategy Trader

Two files must be copied in the MetaTrader's folder: MT4-FST Library.dll and MT4-FST Expert.mq4. In normal conditions the installer will copy these files for you. If this operation fails, you have to copy the files manually. Both files are in the program's MetaTrader folder:
• Put MT4-FST Library.dll in C:\Program Files\MetaTrader\experts\libraries folder.
• Put MT4-FST Expert.mq4 in C:\Program Files\MetaTrader\experts folder.

Use the right path for the destination files. The MetaTrader folder may differ depending on your broker. Compile the Expert Advisor after starting the MetaTrader terminal.

Work

1. Start MetaTrader.

You have to make some changes in the MetaTrader settings in Tools - Options - Expert Advisors menu: 
- Allow live trading - checked
      - Ask manual confirmation - not checked;
- Allow DLL imports - checked;
     - Confirm DLL function calls - not checked;

2. Start MT4-FST Expert. If the expert name is printed in gray, you have to compile it.

3. Start Forex Strategy Trader. If everything is OK, it will connect to MT4.

4. Select the chart symbol and period in Forex Strategy Trader (must be the same as the chart that FST EA is loaded on), load a strategy and press "Start Automatic Execution" button.

Currently Lot step is fixed to 0.1. Min lots to 0.1.

In the Expert the lot size is normalized additionally in order to meet he brokers requirements. (for example, if the broker uses: MinLots 0.7 and LotStep 1.3 smile )

Ok, Thank You.
Could I used ForexST more than one chart at the same time?

Re: Forex Strategy Trader - Beta version

I'll show you how to change the Expert in order to trade 0.01 lots.

One chart only! That cannot be fixed.

You can make a small change in MT4-FST Expert.mq4

Find the NormalizeEntrySize(...) function and add this line:
size = size / 10;

Before:

///
/// Normalizes an entry order's size.
///
double NormalizeEntrySize(string symbol, double size)
{
    double minlot  = MarketInfo(symbol, MODE_MINLOT);
    double maxlot  = MarketInfo(symbol, MODE_MAXLOT);
    double lotstep = MarketInfo(symbol, MODE_LOTSTEP);

    if (size <= 0)
        return (0);

    if (size <= minlot)
        return (minlot);
        
    if (size >= maxlot)
        return (maxlot);
        
    double steps = NormalizeDouble((size - minlot) / lotstep, 0);
    
    size = minlot + steps * lotstep;
        
    return (size);
}

After:

///
/// Normalizes an entry order's size.
///
double NormalizeEntrySize(string symbol, double size)
{
    double minlot  = MarketInfo(symbol, MODE_MINLOT);
    double maxlot  = MarketInfo(symbol, MODE_MAXLOT);
    double lotstep = MarketInfo(symbol, MODE_LOTSTEP);
    
    size = size / 10;

    if (size <= 0)
        return (0);

    if (size <= minlot)
        return (minlot);
        
    if (size >= maxlot)
        return (maxlot);
        
    double steps = NormalizeDouble((size - minlot) / lotstep, 0);
    
    size = minlot + steps * lotstep;
        
    return (size);
}

In that way all the orders you send will be with lots / 10. Example: 0.4 will be 0.04 lots.

Re: Forex Strategy Trader - Beta version

Changes:
- fixed chart layout when the instrument's digit = 3.

Re: Forex Strategy Trader - Beta version

Popov , first very appreciate your work! fantasy work!!

I think there is a problem when you simply insert the "size = size / 10;" to the EA
I tried it , did not work , what i done is let "size= 0.01;" to the end of the function.
maybe some instruction reset the size again ?

thanks

PS. can this trader work with several strategies same time in the future? smile

Re: Forex Strategy Trader - Beta version

Thank you for this nice program - nice idea!

It worked for some time, but after few hours I get suddenly "Not connected" although everything is in place.

I restarted MT4 and FST and still not connected. I turned off firewall and nothing.
What can I send you to find the bug? Some log?

Here is the screen:

========
Hm, after 30 minutes or so it connected itself...

======
And again disconnected after I pressed Start automatic execution...

Re: Forex Strategy Trader - Beta version

To acharyadas:

A new version will be published at the end of the week. This bugs must be fixed.

To nixjoe:

Next version will work with LotStep and MinLots from the broker. Also Symbol
Editor will be included. It will be availbale at the weekend.
Only one strategy on one chart can be traded. This cannot be worked arround
easily.

Thank you for the answer. Can multiple instances of FST be run at the same time with different charts in MT? Or maybe Virtual machines will do the trick (another XP system in VMware)?

Re: Forex Strategy Trader - Beta version

We have not worked on multiple systems yet but I would say that VMs are your best bet for this early beta.

Re: Forex Strategy Trader - Beta version

Forex Strategy Trader v0.5.4.0b is available

Changes:
- many changes in the Expert Adviser.
- Forex Strategy Trader disconnects from MT after one minute.
- bug in the tick chart repaired.
- Symbol Editor added.
- FST correctly normalizes the trading size according to the broker's MinLot and LotStep.

Download link to the latest version: Forex Strategy Trader Beta

Re: Forex Strategy Trader - Beta version

I replace the old version with the new

it says
"Cannot check the 'MT4-FST Library' version.
Please be sure the library file is properly installed.
