Topic: simple tools for fsb pro users who use many robots
Hey, i just want to give my modest contribution to this forum by sharing some tools I use with FSB Pro. The tools really simplified my working time. Hopefully when the developer modifies the software to have similar functionality like EA studio in managing may strategies and exporting portfolio EAs, most of the tools will not be necessary.
Most of the tools were created with GPT3.5.(i know it is possible to get tools with similar functionality elsewhere and some users may be familiar with similar tools) ALL THE MT TOOLS ARE FOR MT4 ONLY. YOU MAY GO TO CHATGPT AND CONVERT THEM TO MT5.
OPEN MY CHARTS EA : This EA will open a specific number of charts for a specific symbol and timeframe. ( it will work only during active trading hours or when the specified symbol is receiving live quotes).
CLOSE ALL MY CHARTS SCRIPT: This SCRIPT will close all open charts in MT4 .
CLOSE ALL MY TRADES SCRIPT: This SCRIPT will close all open trades in the MT4 terminal (a similar script is found somewhere else in this forum)
APPLY MY TEMPLATES EA: This EA will apply template within a defined range to the open charts. It is require that the user opens just the require number of charts per symbol so that the specific template with the specific EA and specific magic number corresponds to the chart. By default the templates are TPL0 to TPL1001 corresponding to the number of templates predefined in the MY FSB PRO EA MT4 TEMPLATES CREATOR PYTHON SCRIPT described below.
MY FSB PRO EA MT4 TEMPLATES CREATOR PYTHON SCRIPT: this PYTHON SCRIPT will create any number of MT4 template files (.tpl) with unique EA names and Magic Numbers but same strategy properties. The script is designed to create templates with names TPL0 to TPL1001 (ie 1001 template files in a defined folder). the template names are identical to the EA names and the numerical suffix corresponds to the EA magic number.
below is the link to download the python for windows.
BRU_setup_22.214.171.124: this is BULK RENAME UTILITY: i use it to rename FSB STRATS or EAs. Generally the user can name the EAs of a specific symbol and timeframe with a specific name with the TPL0 to TPL1001 range e.g TPL0 to TPL9 for 10 EURUSD EAs. in so doing the APPLY MY TEMPATES EA tool will be able to apply the specific EA to the specific chart. The user must ensure to record the ranges of the TPL names of the EAs the number of them so that he open the exact number of charts with the OPEN MY CHARTS EA and the APPLY MY TEMPLATES EA may attached the EAs to the required chart.

NB: the files most obviously be placed in their corresponding folder; scripts in the scripts subfolder in the mql4 folder, EAs in the expert subfolder in mql4 and the template file in the template folder.... the python script has no direct relation to the MT4 terminal it will generate the template files in a named folder any where it is executed. The python script requires python-3.11.2 to work.
