Project Description

What I need it to have an EA repaired. It has a flaw that makes it unusable. It’s been a while since I had this made and some things are no longer clear. Please bear with me!

With this EA, you set your parameters, then add a trendline. You have to rename the line either BBB or SSS for it to fire. Then, it auto-fires a trade in the direction of the slope based on the parameters.

There appears to be problems in how it functions.

See picture “Buy trade closed [url removed, login to view]”
A buy trade was completed, the line removed yet the EA did not update the change. No new lines would be accepted.

It has some kind of trailing stop built in but I don’t see any controls for it??? NO way to configure it or figure out why it sets a stop where it does or what distance it uses to readjust itself? It opens with the trade, the gradually moves with the price action. Can you figure out what it is and what can be done with it? I like it but I want some control over it.

(Correct me if I’m misunderstanding this….)
EntryOffSet (assuming this is the number of pips from the line it has to be before it will fire?) and StopOffSet (assuming this is how many pips the line can be violated by before closing the trade?)need to make more sense. With a 5 digit broker what numbers do I put in to make the entryoffset at 5 pips and the stopoffset (breaks the line) by 10 pips? It should be clear to me but it’s not. DO I use 5 or 50 for 5 pips?

I would like an “early manually set” exit function. I would like to be able to add a secondary trendline, maybe named exit, and have it automatically exit the trade when breached by X pips. The logic behind this is sometimes price moves steeply and having that option will allow me to take profit off the table before most of it slips away.

Please let me know anything else you see that would make this more functional and safe?????

Thank you!
