Topic: Do you want in EA: Random Magic Number; Log Files = on
It's a lovely Saturday morning in Varna and it's an excellent time to discuss some ideas.
1. An random Magic number of exported EA.
Users periodically report conflicts between the experts running on similar charts. Of course, the problem is that they forgot to set unique Magic Numbers to their experts. The role of the Magic Number is to make the tracking of the deals from the different experts possible. If they use one and the same number, the experts cannot distinguish their deals from the deal made by another expert.
My idea is to make FSB setting a random Magic Number when export an EA. This will help the novice traders to avoid conflicts. It will be also possible to change that number manually from the expert's options on start-up.
2. Writing log file on by default.
The exported EAs can write additional log file containing more detailed info for the internal work of the EA. Do you want the log files to be switched on by default?
I don't think it will bring to overload but I'm not sure. Currently you have to switch the log file manually and it happens some times that they are off exactly when you want to check something.
