If you have studied coding before, you will pick it up fairly quickly, probably like 1 week or so, if you have not, then it might take awhile, but it is not impossible. It is incredibly fun.

You can check out the expert advisors here:

Best way to learn from my experience is to, download the source file and view the source code and play around with that, make changes, see what pops. Find out what each code does, after sometime, it will be like second nature to you.

Once you have a template up and running, you just need to change the buy and sell signals and how the trades are managed and closed. Like example, sometimes you just want to set a trade order with a standard tp or you want a trade's tp level to be hidden from your broker and you just have a function that OrderClose when the TP is met, or you could send a hedging trade to hedge off your current losing trade.

Once you have got a new EA fired up, you can then do your own optimization tests or code it to MT5 to take advantage of the multi threaded capabilities.

From there you could move on to more advanced methods like reading off a dll file, that further expands your capabilities to data mine or scrape off data from other reliable data sources.

What is the best way to learn how to be able to write an EA, can someone recommend a methodical method or know someone they would recommend offering tutorials, thanks to all.


Quoted this in another thread, but I'm sure this will be very helpful.
