MT5 EA - How to identify 2nd bar of day?

Hi,

this is my first post... I am working on some indicators for MT5 (basic C++ programming knowledge). Having some problems with my EA.

Could anybody give me a clue how I can identify
- the 2nd and 3rd bar of a day
- the 2nd and 3rd bar after a user defined starting time?

I'm sure that shouldn't be very complicated, but I am stuck right now.

Thanks,

blackfriday

Hi,

unfortunately nobody seems to have a hint.

In the meantime I have coded a timer to start trading after the first/second bar. I think not the most elegant, but a working solution.

MetaTrader is not a popular product among futures traders, which is primarily who make up this community.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

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.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Mike,

I have seen that. But I like your forum, there are a lot of good discussions and it is well organized. So I wanted to give it a try, since there is a MT5 sub-forum
