Thread: Help with Code in mq4 for fixed Time section?

  1. #1
    Hi Guys

    How can I code in MT4 fixed Time section.
    For example I want out of my indi that it will look for some patterns just from 7:00 to 10:00 GMT and 13:00 to 15:00 GMT.
    Is for this in mq4 some purpose or I must write code for this?

    Could I utilize for example TimeCurrent function? However, I believe that this won't work because I want repaired time...
    How I can define that Time section.

    Many thanks for help!!

    You'll need the time functions to understand where to work.
    And for your patterns you need iBarShift to get the bar then the High/Low/Open/Close with iHigh/iLow/iOpen/iLow.
    The GMT detection is another story.

    Wau this seems for me too much complied I am not a good coder... Better to state quite terrible coder. Only basic stuff I know....
    Is there no way that I will only code from example like this:
    check yesterdays time from 7 to 10 server time?
    No purpose in MT4 for some thing like that?

    The best way is iBarShift(), but if you're not a strong coder, you'll need to use something else like Hour() and Day().

    Guys what if I will do something like this...

    if(TimeCurrent()gt; London Open Server Time ) (TimeCurrent() lt; London Close Sever Time)....

    Where London Open Server Time etc.... will be repaired time from server.
    Is there purpose where I could call particular server time?

    thx

    Use something like that:
    Inserted Code if((Hour()gt;=StartHour Hour()lt;=EndHour)){

    THX

    StartHour and EndHour are my variables right?

    Something like that

    extern int StartHour = 0900; // will be 9:00 am server Time?

    No, like this...

    Inserted Code extern int StartHour = 9;
    if you would like to use hours and moments you need to do something a bit different. You need also know what a datetime represents in the event that you would like to work with times and dates in mql4/5.

    Wau Really Easy?
    Simply put if((Hour()gt;=9 Hour()lt;=11))and mq4 will understand my time range.... nice.

    Guys I've also Q about the way to pick second highest volume from preceding x candles....
    I understand how to pick highest because I will use iHighest work but what about second highest??


    thx

    For the second highest find the highest from the onset of the range to the 1st highest bar and compare with the highest from the 1st highest bar towards the end of the range.
