    This EA does not seem to be suitable for IBfx mini account.

    Can somebody show me where I can add the "m" in the code for this to work in IBFX?

    Hi ElectricSavant,

    There is no "m" to add, as there is no specific symbol in the code, it will work with all pairs.

    TY Funyoo for your reply...

    I cannot get a trade...perhaps this one does not trade much...

    When I looked at the code it said something like this for the format...xxxxxx string = 6 or something like that...

    ES

    You're right, I didn't noticed that part :

    Code:
    //---- Only allow standard Forex symbols XXXYYY
       if(StringLen(symbol)!=6)
         {
          Print("Lots: '",symbol,"' must be standard forex symbol XXXYYY");
          return(0.0);
         }
    You have to replace this one by that :

    Code:
    //---- Only allow m Forex symbols XXXYYYm
       if(StringLen(symbol)!=7)
         {
          Print("Lots: '",symbol,"' must be m forex symbol XXXYYYm");
          return(0.0);
         }
    Or you can erase it if you prefer.

    I am testing it on FXDD demo EU only, no trade is opened so far.
    FXDD not required a 'm' behind symbols.

    I have also had no trades during 4 days, but today I've got 10 trades.

    Please double check the code as there are some other places that discuss the format of the pair....I just want to make sure as I am going to test this one again...(I deleted the demo and the test....but now that you can fix the IBFX problem I will try again).

    thank you for your service....This is my serious place that I come to for tests...along with Forex-tsd.

    I have tested it in backtesting on IBFX mini and it works fine.
