Topic: MT4 Bridge - Expert and dll
Here are attached the latest versions of the MT4 Expert and Library.
They are compatible with FST and are included in the installations.
The new library file: MT4-FST Library.dll requires VC++ Redistributable 2012, also included in distribution. Download link to the newest version from Microsoft: Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012
Expert: MT4-FST Expert.mq4 Version: 3.0 from 2013-07-25
Library: MT4-FST Library.dll Version: 3.0 from 2013-07-29
Changes from previous version:
- Expert and Library include a function for saving required from FSB Pro LTF symbols and periods.
- If strategy in FSB Pro uses indicators with different symbol or LTF, the expert returns last two bars from the required data with every tick. In that way, FSB Pro updates the data without further requests to MT4.
- Expert requires 300 bars on attaching on MT4 (previously 2 days + 10 bars). This is because FSB Pro uses a new setting "Recommended chart bars" instead of minimum chart bars. FST continues requesting for 2 days + 10 bars.
The new expert and library do no change the trading behaviour. However be careful after the update.
FST can continue working with the old version of the expert and dll.
Please comment any problems with the new expert and dll.
