I want to write an Expert Advisor that takes values (Stop Loss, Open Trade, Take Profit) from an emailed signal and places an order. Can this be done? If yes, how can it be done?
By opening a job here: https://www.mql5.com/en/job
I know my question sounds like a mouth full. But even just having a good idea of the steps involved in a breakdown of how to achieve this would really be appreciated. I really want to improve my Expert Advisor coding skills so I’ll prefer learning to do this with some guidelines.
If I understand correctly what you are asking, that would be very, very difficult. Not impossible, but it would required very advanced coding skills, not only MQL5.
Your “EA” would have to somehow access your e-mail, read the values, translate to buy/sell orders and it’s parameters and then place the orders.
