    Default Embedding a Custom Indicator into an EA

    Hi

    Does anyone know how to embed an indicator within an EA?
    Any example would be appreciated.
    Thanks for your help.

    I've done it but you obviously can't display a chart. It was purely just for calculating the output.

    What's your indicator EA?

    Its usually possible to do this but...
    Performance will not be as good in backtesting or live trading
    and, any mistake in the indi function in the EA is very, very difficult to spot
    I now prefer external indis for these reasons
    FWIW
