  • The 'No. of open buy orders' and 'No. of open sell orders' functions were added. You can now create your Signals and conditions based on how many buy and/ or sell orders are currently opened.

November 20th, 2023

  • New money management (MM) option 'Fixed Risk' is now available! If the order's SL is known from the moment the order is opened, the new MM system will calculate the lot size based on the maximum amount you're willing to risk. Read more: Fixed Risk.

  • We solved a bug using the Stop loss and Take profit modules when using order grouping and having multiple open orders, each with a different open price and/ or lot size.

Oktober 16th, 2023

  • We're introducing the new 'Web indicators' option when adding an indicator to your EA. So, besides the standard MetaTrader indicators, we now also offer commonly used public indicators. Due to the fact that we put great effort into adding these indicators to our portal and testing if and how these can be used by an EA, we do require you to be subscribed in order to add these indicators to your EA. If you are already subscribed you can use these already. We have started with a small collection of available indicators and many more will be added weekly.

September 19th, 2023

  • We're introducing a new EA notification system, allowing your EA to alert you when your attention is required, for example when orders are failing. Please see: Alerts & Notifications
  • We've made improvements on how EA inputs are grouped and sorted, making it easier for you to find your inputs.
  • When calculating past losses, only losses from the EA itself are taken into account (plus manual closes), not from other EA's, based on Magic number. This affects EA's which use the 'Maximum loss' and 'Maximum profit' modules.
  • When using multiple EA's using the same Magic number, the maximum number of orders wouldn't be respected.
  • We fixed a problem with the Margin requirements – Prevent open module for MT5.

September 6th, 2023

  • Chart improvements for Demo and Live trading for MT4. We now display trading arrows and trend lines.
  • Export improvements for MT4 and MT5 (the naming of inputs has been improved).
  • We solved an issue with the Take profit - Conditional (Pro) module. The 'Reuse module after partial close' option didn't work well for this module.
  • We now allow a negative Shift on indicators which support this.
  • When running multiple MT5 EA's, we no longer show unnecessary warnings when another EA is trading.
  • Memory cleanup issue for MT5 EA's using Netting accounts.
  • We solved an issue with the new Maximum Profit and Maximum Loss modules.

August 21st, 2023

  • We have a brand new Backtest dashboard.
  • We switched to another broker for MT5 tick data, this can cause differences in MT5 backtest results.
  • You can now set the Martingale module (Subscribers only) to reset the lot size after it has reached the maximum number of steps.
  • You can now add almost all modules multiple times, for both the Close- and the Prevent Open modules.
  • You can now set the minimum amount of pips the SL modules will trail your price. Before this was a mandatory 1 pip. Now you can for example choose 0.1 pip, which may be ideal for scalpers.
  • Export improvements for MT5 (naming of inputs).

August 17th, 2023

August 8th, 2023

  • The 'No. of open orders' function was added. You can now create your Signals and conditions based on how many orders are currently opened. This means you can have a different condition for when there are no open orders, or for example when 1 order is opened.

July 31st, 2023

  • It's now possible to limit the amount of Loss/ Profit per unit of time (Day, Hour, etc.) and wait before new orders are opened. Please see our new modules: Maximum Profit/ Maximum Loss.
  • You can now give your indicator's modes custom names. So you may for example rename Mode 0 to 'Arrow up' and Mode 1 to 'Arrow down', if your indicator contains arrows on these modes.

June 21st, 2023

  • Major update! We're proud to announce we've improved the experience of adding custom indicators to your EA and configuring your buy/ sell signals correctly. The indicators modes (buffers) can now be used all at once after adding the indicator, instead of having to add the indicator once per mode (buffer). The signal editor will tell you if you've selected a 'wrong' Shift value, meaning the selected Shift will never be painted by the indicator or the indicator's value has a risk of getting re-painted when using the selected shift.
  • The signal editor experience was enhanced, giving clearer clues when misconfigured.
  • Martingale module now (optionally) includes the usage of open orders to multiply lot size.
  • Stop loss/ Take profit - Conditional (Pro) modules are now easier to configure; you no longer need to set the precondition setting, which is now an optional setting.

May 21st, 2023

  • The Martingale module now has a new parameter to allow including open orders to calculate the order volume. Before, only closed orders would be considered, now this is optional.

March 14th, 2023

  • Due to the high number of questions and our efforts to create an easy to use EA Builder, a new Open module (V3) will now behave differently to its predecessor (V2). It's still possible to use the current obsolete module (Open module (V2)), which will remain available for at least a year.
    The new module's documentation can be found here: Open order V3.

March 14th, 2023

  • The Balance, Equity and Pip functions were added.
  • We solved an issue with using the Ask/ Bid functions with the cross operators.

February 28th, 2023

  • Manually adjust (override) your module's Stop Loss and Take Profit value. If you set the setting named 'Allow manually moving TP and SL lines' to 'true', you'll be able to drag-and-drop the SL and TP lines. Setting these lines manually will force a full close, no partial close.

January 14th, 2023

  • We've fixed a stability issue which occurs when restarting MetaTrader when you've got open orders, under specific circumstances. If you're using the Take Profit or Stop Loss module with the 'Order scope' set to 'Symbol' or 'Symbol Order type', you will likely be affected. Please re-download your EA, verify you have version 2.22, retest and redeploy your EA.

December 12th, 2022

January 29th, 2022

  • (Subscribers only) Uploading indicators in the EX format (ex4/ ex5) is now available for subscribers. EX indicators are usually commercial indicators. Uploading MQL is still the preferred (faster) way, if you have the MQL available.
