If u don’t know what your br oker GMT is, please read below :

//**********************Method 1********************************

Find do your br oker list below :(broker which list below does no mean the spread is under restricted)

(summer Time)

FXCM : 1

MIG :2

Forex.com : 0

FXDD : 3

ODL : 0

MIG : 2

FXOPEN : 3

Windsor : 3

Omnivest : 3

VarenGold : 2

FOREX-Server - FOREX Ltd. : 0

FX-Solution : -4

//**********************Method 2 of finding the broker_GMT********************************

please compare with GMT +0:00 time and date at below website :

<>

http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/

<>

it show the GMT +0:00 time and date

<>

Do below step to calculate your br oker GMT:

<>

1) open EURGBP 15minutes chart

2) press “alt” and “2” those two keys at the same time to change to candlestick chart

3) zoom in the chart until it cannot be zoom

4) move the chart to the latest bar

5) move your mouse on the latest bar

6) press “Ctrl” “F” those 2 keys at the same time

7) then u can see the time and date of it(the latest bar)

8) compare the latest bar o’clock and GMT +0:00 time’clock

9) if the bar time is 2 hour after GMT +0:00, then your br oker_GMT is 2 ;

If the bar time is 4 hour before GMT +0:00, then your br oker_GMT is -4;

<>

You should be pay attention of whether the date is different, if the date is different, you should add 24 on the later one, for example

example 1:

Your MT4 = 19:57 3,June (earlier)

GMT +0:00 = 01:57 4,June

Then your br oker_GMT should be before GMT +0:00 GMT = - negative

br oker_GMT = - (1+24 -19) (late – earlier)

= -6

<>

example 2:

Your MT4 = 02:57 5,June

GMT +0:00 = 19:57 4,June (earlier)

Then your br oker_GMT should be after GMT +0:00, GMT = + postive

br oker_GMT = + (2+24 - 18) (late – earlier)

= +8

remember the one who add 24 is the later one !


of course you will have some problem when u do calculate at weekend,

due to the latest bar time will not update at weekend.

you can compare a specific bar's time with other broker which already know it's GMT


//*********************End of how to find broker_GMT*********************************

<>

Broker Recommended = Alpari NZ Limited

Actually I am strongly recommend u use alpari_Russian, as it allow scalping and have fixed spread 3 to 4 pips during trading time and the most important point is alpari-Russian have purchase insurance for clients’ money.

<>

Even if it bankrupt, and take clients’ money away, thirdy party Limited will be burden for pay back clients’ money !

<>

You should realize that, most broker will widen their spread at asia time, so don’t suppose that br oker will be 2 spread at what you saw at asia time ~~

<>


To open personal account at Alpari, use below link:

https://www.alpari-forex.com/en/live-account/personal/1/

//-------------------------------------//-------------------------------------//-------------------------------------//-------------------------------------//-------------------------------------//-------------------------------------

<>

The reason of don't generate any trade :

<>

1) Forgot to tick the box of "Allow DLL imports", and untick "Confirm DLL function calls" in MT4 Options, see

The expert log will show "dll calls are not allowed; " when u forgot to do so~ ~

<>

2) your br oker spread is too wide, maybe you can run it with alpari NZ MT4:

http://alpari-forex.com/download/mt/mt4setup.exe

3) Error 126 / 14001 --> cannot load library Steady Growth _Beta.dll

3.1 please make sure u have install "vcredist_x86_VC 2008.exe"

3.2 please make sure u have paste "Steady Growth _Beta.dll" at MT4 directory\expert\libraries\ (e.g. C:\Program Files\Alpari NZ- MetaTrader\experts\libraries)

<>

then it can be solve

<>

4) if the log say:" x result have been discarded as insignificant"

then u should untick the box of optimization in Tester

ONLY READING MY FIRST POST OF THIS THREAD is already enough, if my EA have any update, I WILL UPDATE THIS POST

If Amazon and Alibaba Face Off, Who Will Come Out On Top?

Amazon and Alibaba, the world’s largest e-commerce companies, are gearing up for the next big competition: cross-border e-commerce. Both companies have unique advantages in the market, and both are rushing to lock in an advantage in shipping goods from abroad into China, now the world’s largest e-commerce market.

if u want to have quicker backtest speed, please select "Control points" for the Model, as it is not big difference with using EveryTick Mode, but the Speed improve a lot

besides, my EA one disadvantage is very sensitive to minor Price's differnecne with different broker

<>

if your broker haven't provide Historical Data by History Center, MT4 will prompt u to download quotes from MetaQuotes Limited, but the price of MetaQuotes is narrower, which show worse result comapre with Alpari AZ

Alpari AZ provide it's own quotes data by History Centre in MT4

Download 5 minutes history data is already OK for my EA, which can be faster

hi, kelly
i have test your EA in alpari
it is a profitable EA, and the drawdown quite well
is a good beginning!
Steady Growth is a meaningful name of your EA ^^
which target to be stable, that is all the investor need~ ~
By the way, why your EA use with a DLL?
and do all the positions' stop loss under 15point ?

Hi Kelly

I was interested in back testing your EA but I have error 126 cannot load library Steady Growth _Beta.dll. I put the dll and def files in the expert/libraries directory. If I develop a working EA I shall post it as well because it will make it a self full filling prophecy. The more people that use it the more the market will move in the same direction making the EA work. Is this your thinking?

hi, ruptor

error 126 cause by dll not found

please double check the

1) Steady Growth _Beta.dll

2) Steady Growth _Beta.def

exist in where you install the metaTrader, directory\expert\libraries .

<>

if the error still occur

please click Start --> Control Panel --> System--> Advanced --> Environment Variables

--> at System Variables, there are a colon call "Path"

Please paste

1) Steady Growth _Beta.dll

2) Steady Growth _Beta.def

in one of the paths

<>

then it can solve the error of "error 126 cannot load library Steady Growth _Beta.dll"

<>

<>

by the way, in my mind I want to be a person which respect by others

I think to be a programmer, the most important thing is : there are sombodies use your program, which means i was repected by them~ ~

so when u use it, i got happiness

<>

hope you enjoy

Kelly I copied both files into the expert/libraries directory, and I'm experiencing the same error 126 cannot load library Steady Growth _Beta.dll. Do you have any other solutions???
