Converting code

How does a novice in easylanguage coding go about getting a metatrader code converted to easylanguage? 10 easylanguage service won't even return my emails. Does anybody help in this regards or point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.

I've got the easylanguage code for the sinewave indicator and I wanted the support and resistance lines to match to show on the price chart.

Here's the support resistance lines of code in metatrader so you might see if its difficult. It is to me. : )

//| Sinewave with Support & Resitance.mq4

Looks pretty simple to convert for someone with experience in EL.

You may trying dropping into the Create your EasyLanaugage Indicator for Free post ( and see if someone can help there.

do you have a URL for the code above? looks interesting and might be something i look into coding myself to learn EL (I'm a newb in the language).

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
