Thread: Scalper needs some help starting on live account.

  1. #1

    Default Scalper needs some help starting on live account.

    Hey guys,

    Can anyone tell me why my little scalper will trade on demo but freezes on live accounts?
    I have the issue with a few bots similar to this one and they just won't budge..

    Have tried speaking to the developer but he's insistent that it is all my fault, even though I tried it on a few
    separate brokerage live accounts

    Caution: if you do download this one, it's pretty dangerous if not watched.

    Hi Richard Dennis,

    Too much
    Code:
    IsTradeAllowed
    &
    Code:
    IsTradeContextBusy()
    inside this code.

    If your broker has a lot of busy trade context with their "real" servers, it can freeze a lot.

    Otherwise it can come from a loop. Loops should be calculated once per bar if possible.

    Thanks Fxtester, so how many entry orders do you reckon I could put in a single EA? 3 too many?
    i'm a little thick on the coding, hence the ea builder doing it for me.

    Cheers,
    Richard
