Ten "Errors" of a Newcomer in Trading?

The article substantiates approach to building a trading system as a sequence of opening and closing the interrelated orders regarding the existing conditions - prices and the current values of each order's profit/loss, not only and not so much the conventional "alerts". We are giving an exemplary realization of such an elementary trading system.

If it's in the experts tab it's also in the experts log file.

Experts tab is rubbish and i was fortunate enough to stumble across this EXCELLENT post by 7bit; it's made debugging so much more powerful :)

Addendum: Writing to Experts tab also creates log files, which over time can slow down the terminal. To optimise speed, go to Tools->Options->Charts and change both Max bars to 500, so the terminal isn't constantly pulling thousands of candles from the server and delete old log files.
