Based on request.

Hot Keys
HotKey_Buy, HotKey_Sell, HotKey_Close_Buy, HotKey_Close_Sell, HotKey_CloseAll

There is an issue with it. It's a global "hotkeys". So, it
opening some positions as I type this post. :) It's useless for a
real life (unless you don't have a dedicated PC for it).10 min

Great! :D

I just tested it, and actually the position opens when you type a text ...;)

it's very boring this global hotkey? You would have another solutions proposed?
The problem is that MT4 uses too many keyboard shortcuts and mainly all F1 / F2 / F3 keys etc ...
I guess it's not possible to disable the MT4 shortcut?...

It's also possible to add a function "hotkey_TP" (Take profit with a percentage) and a "hotkey_BE"?

you think with a gamer keyboard and extra keys, the EA could work with the global hotkey?

Hi,
To solve the problem of using the keyboard
it would be possible to use a combination of two keys, rather than one for each command?
for example ctrl + 1, +2 etc ...
Thank's

this is how MT4 works. It checks the keys only when the code is executing. Sometimes you release the keys before the MT4 code executed. This method of hotkeys is a hack and it barely works. It isn't good for that. There is nothing we can do to improve it.

Did only the breakeven part. Multi-level stop is NOT support
by the MT4. Hard-coding is possible and time demanding.
