I mean, the current pause in trading this account, after the close of the last orders. If not stopped this version of the EA has already manually whether to open new order? :-)

You mean the pause in trading for the weekend? If you have trades held over the weekend it will just continue where it left off. You shouldn't have to stop the EA as some trades may be open for days or weeks potentially.

You can open and close manual trades without interrupting the operation of the EA doing it's own independent trades automatically. However, if you have your risk set to account equity, that will impact only so much as your manual trades effect the equity balance.

Hope this helps!

I meant a pause from 8.55 am on 14 April and 15 April day, during which new orders was not open.

For example, the https://www.myfxbook.com/members/flexea/flex-ea-halfgrid-real-fxopen/1371001 monitoring EA was stopped on 30 March, if you look at the history of orders.

Hi Сергей. Good question. I didn't seem to have that issue on my account. I'm looking at my trade history and I have trades opened both days.

It might be the settings that Steve had in which the market did not meet the conditions to trigger a trade. He may even have temporarily took the EA offline manually so that he could adjust settings.

It is a pity that we cannot know the exact settings of this EA account...

Hello,

Two questions that are not 100% clear to me,

1. I open a number of charts in my MT4. These are the pairs I want to operate in the strategy. Should I open the EA in each of the charts or opening in one will be enough.

2. If I select one strategy and I do not touch anything else, the rest of parameters all be the ones preprogrammed for the strategy ? or I should put all the parameters in 'according to strategy' mode. I mention this because after version 3.3 it is not clear to me (see notes to version 3.3.)

Thanks and regards.

Hi Pablo51, you will need to attach the EA to each chart.

If you leave everything as SetByStrat it will use the default settings that the strategy uses, i.e. TrendSurfer will use the TrendSurfer defaults, however, if you change the setting from SetByStrat, the EA will use that setting instead of the default. Hope that helps. 😁

TrendSurfer
RealTakeProfit= 0
VirtualTakeProfit= 34
RealStopLoss= 0
PipStep= 21
LotMultiplier= 1.3
VirtualTrades= 4
MaxBuyTrades= 12
MaxSellTrades= 12
FloatingTP_Pct= 0
EquityTrail= On
EquityTrailTP= 2
EquityTrailSL= 0
ReverseMode= true
trendMode=true

Thanks Glenn,

Unfortunately for an unknown reason the EA does load only in one chart and refuses to do so in the other charts.. Also, I had the EA running in another account, I disconnected it for a second and later I was unable to load it back. I sent a note to Flex but I can not imagine why this is happening.

Thanks and regards.
