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'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.
We added the following MT4 backtest symbols: Brent, Natural Gas and forex minors (AUDUSD, EURGBP, EURAUD, EURCAD, AUDNZD, EURCHF, GBPCHF, AUDCHF, EURNZD, CADCHF, EURJPY, GBPJPY, AUDJPY, CADJPY, CHFJPY, GBPAUD, GBPCAD, GBPNZD, NZDCAD, NZDCHF, NZDJPY).
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.
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 (new).
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.

January 29th, 2022

Signal - Copy/ Paste/ Invert: to speed up building new EA's we've added functionality to copy your signals between 'Open Buy/ Sell' and 'Close Buy/ Sell'. Also, you can Invert a signal. So you can copy 'Open Buy' to 'Open Sell' and then Invert the 'Open Sell' signal.
(Subscribers only) In the EA's properties, we've added an input so that you can enable to only process each first quote of the candlestick.
Stop loss after condition – Close: manage where your SL is set when a signal is met. Before only an amount of pips from the current position could be selected, now you can put the trail SL anywhere you need.
Take profit after condition – Close manage where your TP is set when a signal is met. Before only an amount of pips from the current position could be selected, now you can put the trail TP anywhere you need.
