Description: Use the MQL Hour() function to check that the hour is 1, and if so, use the function fnGetHighest to get the highest values between the 0 and 1 bars. This will give you the highest price value between 0 and 1 because it will only execute the function when the Hour is equal to 1. Although the function may be called multiple times, the value will not change because the high has been established for that period.

Note the parenthesis after Hour(). Earlier versions of the MetaTrader compiler would compile without the parenthesis, but they are now required. A new version of VTS being released shortly will ensure the parenthesis are there before building.

Expert Advisor that Finds Absolute Value of EMA's and Sends Email

Description: In this video I get the absolute value of two sets of Exponential Moving Averages (EMA). Then I compare them and send an email if one is greater than the other.

The key to this EA is using the MQL function MathAbs to find the absolute value. In this case, you need to manually type the values into the variable assignment field like this:
MathAbs(_EMA13_0 - _EMA26_0)
MathAbs(_EMA13_1 - _EMA26_1)

This is not ideal because you can create a syntax error entering this text. As a matter of fact, I did exactly that when I created this video. (I swear it was not on purpose for dramatic effect!) I also show how to find and correct the error.

I'm always looking for better ways. There is an "equation editor" on the variable assignment field, but I don't think it's real useful. if you have any ideas, please pass them along.

Watch how to use the VTS Expert Advisor Builder (for MetaTrader 4) to build a simple robot that watches your hand-drawn trendline and if the trendline is broken, the EA sends you an email with a screenshot of the price chart AND sends a notification to your smart phone. Super cool IMHO.
