EA PAD PRO
" Being informed means having a lot of money ."
For many years, we have programmed scripts and programs, improving our experience, we have tried to bring our products to the peak of perfection. But we completely forgot about the information that our programs give us.
Boring black terminal graphic. Green Bars and a running price - Is this enough to keep abreast of developments? Perhaps even more open news sources, indicators, Analysis.
But not for an expert who "quietly" is working on your account. Not giving you an idea of what's in his "soul".
The hidden algorithm of the expert for the programmer is the most important rule. Another thing is when you order the script individually. There you can control logic, to see it, to modernize. After all, an expert to order is a clear fulfillment of your requirements.
From now, in our experts, you will be able to see all the available information about the work of the adviser right on the chart.
Why do you need a black screen with green bars? Watch the Information!

We specifically tested our panel in extreme conditions, as well as in the strategy tester!
If you have any questions about:
Does the Expert Advisor work if the panel is enabled?
Working! Drawing the panel does not affect the working algorithm of the Expert Advisor.
For example, we took our high-speed scalper Exp-TickSniper PRO FULL - This advisor works on the speed of ticks, so its performance is indicative for evaluating the performance of our panel:
Why are there different results when visually testing and standard testing?
When visually testing indicators are calculated at each tick.
And with a standard testing some ticks are ignored!
This is a feature of the strategy tester. tester_everytick_calculate
In the Strategy Tester, indicators are only calculated when their data are accessed, i.e. when the values of indicator buffers are requested. This provides a significantly faster testing and optimization speed, if you do not need to obtain indicator values on each tick.
By specifying the tester_everytick_calculate property, you can enable the forced calculation of the indicator on every tick.
Indicators in the Strategy Tester are also forcibly calculated on every tick in the following cases:
when testing in the visual mode;
if the indicator has any of the following functions: EventChartCustom, OnChartEvent, OnTimer;
if the indicator was created using the compiler with build number below 1916.
This feature only applies in the Strategy Tester, while in the terminal indicators are always calculated on each received tick.
