Hi Samir, I hope you can find the fix soon. Is there any thing else that this workbook needs to do? OHLC data could be put in a different worksheet.
Can you put in an automatic limit of any number i want colums, which automatically refreshes. It would be best if - like stockbacktest - the same open buy, open sell, closed sell, closed buy would be inserted and a record of the trades.
Please inform me of additional cost. Are you going to be manually entering orders when a signal is generated? Maurice, I have completed this project and sent it to you via email.

Each time the "start button" is pressed a new Bar update is scheduled based on the number of minutes set in B2. I have now updated this file and emailed it to you so that Each time the "Start" button is pressed any previously scheduled bar updates are canceled. I have updated this also so that now you can stop bars from updating for example when the trading day is over but you want to keep the workbook open etc. I am contemplating using VWAP as a additional trading tool not sure yet.
Just to get an idea, would it be possible to incorparate this into the existing workbook. If so, could you give me an estimate on the cost? Do you think this needs to be programmed with VBA or could you just use the formula area? Good point, i'm not sure yet. I thought about vwap calculation within every minute, that would require vba, but maybe vwap from minute to minute would be sufficient. Then i could manage without vba.
I wil come back after i tested this. Have you had any experience with vwap? I read it's an excellent added indicator. Furthermore, you wouldn't have any experience with programming expert advisors for forex or know someone who does? Formulas could be used for continuous updating of the indicator.
VBA could be used to only update is once per minute. I have not used vwap or metatrader. Attempting to go live with the US opening today, but there is a problem with my workbook.

This will result in a continuous loop that will result in an error. This crossed logic is one of the biggest dangers of automated trading systems, imagine some programming error where the system just bought and sold non stop all day. Then open up the worksheet and fix the formulas so that there is no simultaneous buy to open and sell to close. Once that is done, lower the security settings again, save close and reopen the workbook so that code can run.
Excel-trader, in order to fix the problem with the BUY-SELL loop and dynamic entry and exit price a box as in stockbacktest showing last order entry type is necessary for my system. Would it be possible to add this box on the first worksheet were the OHLC of the first stock is projected. Furthermore, would it be possible to set the automated ohlc timer in a way that it automatically follows the internal clock on my windows so when i press start it starts a new minute at zero seconds exactly?
Added last order type in column E of "Main" sheet Added VBA based logic that an entry should not occur if there is a simultanous exit. Pressing the "Start" button now waits until the current minute is up before starting new bars nothing will appear to happen until the current minute is up. All bars start exactly on the minute.
