Release Notes

Expert Advisor Code updated to v 49

Hello Traders,

There is an update to the MQL code for exporting Expert Advisors. The update fixes a compilation error in the newest MT5 - 'NormalizeComponentValue' - function already defined and has different type.

The MQL code will be updated automatically at the next start of FSB Pro.

You may force the update by deleting the content of the C:\Program Files\Forex Strategy Builder Pro\User Files\MT4 Files\MQL folder. If you decide to do that, you have to re-install the custom indicators you use.

The MQL code v49 will be silently introduced in the FSB Pro v3.8.8 installation package.

Hello Traders,

FSB Pro v3.8.8 is released.

It solves a problem with the network connection of FSB Pro with the forexsb.com website for various updates and services. The problem was caused due to an update of the website security certificate of the hosting company. Now we have new settings in FSB pro that must solve the problem.

Forex Strategy Builder Professional v3.8.7. EA Code v48

Hello Traders!

Forex Strategy Builder Professional v3.8.7 is released. It comes with updated Expert Advisors MQL code v48.

Major changes

  • Replaced the stopped Google currency conversion service with own powered by Expert Advisor Studio. Now FSB Pro updates the Account Exchange Rates properly. You may update the current rates from Control Panel → Account.

Update Account Exchange Rate

  • Fixed the William's Percent Range indicator. It prevent crashes in rare cases when there are consecutive equal bars.
  • Prevented unwanted positive signals for indicators that sets entry price in case when the price is set to 0.
  • Fixed logic rule description of Heiken Ash.

Additional changes

  • Updated the Code Signing Certificate of FSB Pro. It is possible some license codes issued in the period 2014-2015 to be wrongly shown as not valid. If you have such case, please contact us.
  • Added “MS VC++ 2010 x64” library to the installation package. MS VC++ is a necessary requirement for the FSB-MT4 bridge. You may install it, if the Bridge doesn't work.

Expert Advisors MQL Code Updated

Hello Traders,

We released a new version of the MQL code, now version 47. The changes are only in the MT5 code.

The update covers a problem in MT5 - inability to set a proper Order Filling Type. We found out there is a bug either in MT5 or in some brokers settings, which make it impossible to get the correct filling type from the MT platform. Fortunately, we found a workaround that works for the problematic brokers.

We hope our solution will work even if MetaQuotes fix that behavior.

If your experts work fine, you don't need to re-export them.

Your MQL code will be updated automatically after restarting FSB Pro.

Please report any problems in the forum and we will find a solution.

Forex Strategy Builder Professional v3.8.2

Hello Traders,

Forex Strategy Builder Professional v3.8.2 is published. It comes with a new statistic metric - Backtest quality %.

The Backtest quality measures what is the percentage of the correctly calculated bars. The formula is:

BacktestQuality = 100 * (totalBars - strategyFirstBar - ambiguousBars) / (totalBars - strategyFirstBar)

The higher the number is, the better is the backtest precision. FSB Pro marks the stats in red when it is lower than 100%.

 Backtest Quality

FSB Pro v 3.8.2 is available for autoupdate. Because this update does not concern the strategy behavior you don't need to re-export your Expert Advisors.

Expert Advisor Code v43 - Fixed Oscillator of MACD

Hello Traders,

We released an update to the FSB Pro Expert Advisor code v3. It fixes a bug in the “Oscillator of MACD” indicator.

If you have expert advisors that use the “Oscillator of MACD” indicator, please reexport your expert advisor.

Expert Advisor Code v42 - Detect Friday Close Time

Dear traders,

I'm proud to announce a new release of the Expert Advisors source code used by FSB Pro.

The new code solves a longtime problem - automatically detection of the end of the Friday trading session. This is important in order to make the Day Closing and the Week Closing indicators working properly.

Friday Close

You see on the above screenshot that the expert closes the position at 23:59 on Tuesday and at 21:59 on Friday.

These indicators doesn't replace the “Day Closing 2” and “Week Closing 2” indicators where you can set different closing times.

The v42 code release fixes a bug that may lead to “requote” errors in MetaTrader 5.

You will receive the update when you start Forex Strategy Builder Professional.

Please test carefully your experts and report all issues you may encounter.
