"Close at Midnight"
Midnight at which time zone?
GMT +/- xx?
Midnight is determined by the market data because all times used in FSB comes from the broker.

You have to check if the strategy works in your time zone.
hey i am try to open this but error comes
cant load candle color indicator

please let me know about this error
You can find the Candle Color indicator in the "Indicator" repository page.
there is stop built into the strategy since the position is closed by day end:so risk is less than average day's range
this strategy,like it's developer, looks good: gives profits on most major pairs except audusd

How do I make this strategy and others listed in this forum work in MT4?

They are in xml format when I downloaded them and when I compile the codes in MT4, there were lots of errors.
Yes, how do we convert these into a file accepted by MT4. They are all downloading at xml files currently.
