Distance / angle calculation type
Distance / angle calculation type:
 In points: fixed distance in points / fixed angle in points per bar is used (what is a “point”?)
 Volatility * Coefficient: distance is calculated as “current volatility * Coefficient” / angle is calculated as “current volatility * Coefficient” per bar
Distance / angle value
Distance or angle value for signal calculation.
Distance can be negative (so, in Buy below MA mode, BUYs will be allowed if Ask above the MA, but not more than by distance points).
Angle is set in points per bar (for example, 1.5 points per bar means MA changed by 1.5 points), or as “current volatility * Coefficient” per bar (for example, if volatility = 20 points, and Distance / angle value = 0.1, MA should change by 20*0.1 = 2 points per bar to generate signal).
Angle value also can be negative, so in Buy on rising MA mode BUY will be allowed on falling MA, but it shouldn’t fall too fast (slope still should be >= Angle).
Max Distance / Angle value
^{(starting from v2.55)}
Max distance / angle value.
For example, if Distance value = 10, Max Distance value = 20, Buy below MA signal will be active if Max Distance >= MA  price >= Distance.

Custom indicator signal type. Can be one of the following:

Disabled: custom indicator signal disabled.
 On arrow (nonempty buffer):
 BUYs are allowed on every bar with some value in the Buybuffer
 SELLs are allowed on every bar with some value in the Sellbuffer
Nonempty means any value. It can look like an arrow, like a line, like a histogram or even be invisible (calculation buffer).
 On new arrow (nonempty after empty):
 BUYs are allowed on the bar with some value in the Buybuffer that follows a bar with an empty value the Buybuffer
 SELLs are allowed on the bar with some value in the Sellbuffer that follows a bar with an empty value in the Sellbuffer
It can be an arrow, beginning of the line, first bar of histogram (after emptiness), etc..
 In the direction of the last arrow:
 BUYs are allowed if the last bar with some value in the Buybuffer was later than the last bar with some value in the Sellbuffer
 SELLs are allowed if the last bar with some value in the Sellbuffer was later than the last bar with some value in the Buybuffer
If both buffers are not empty on the same bar, both BUYs and SELLs are allowed after it.
For example, if the latest arrow is UP, buys are allowed, if the latest arrow is DN, sells are allowed, and if there are both arrows on the same bar, both buys and sells are allowed after it.
 Above/below the line/last arrow
 BUYs are allowed if the close price is above the line/arrow in the Buybuffer.
 SELLs are allowed if the close price is below the line/arrow in the Sellbuffer.
If the buffer is empty, the last bar with some value in the buffer is used.
 On line/last arrow cross
 BUYs are allowed on the bar where the close price crosses above the line/arrow in the Buybuffer.
 SELLs are allowed on the bar where the close price crosses below the line/arrow in the Sellbuffer.
If the buffer is empty, the last bar with some value in the buffer is used. For arrows, only the first cross is used.
 On lines cross:
 BUYs are allowed on the bar where line from the Buybuffer crosses above the line from the Sellbuffer
 SELLs are allowed on the bar where line from the Buybuffer crosses below the line from the Sellbuffer
 On lines position:
 BUYs are allowed on every bar where line from the Buybuffer is above the line from the Sellbuffer
 SELLs are allowed on every bar where line from the Buybuffer is below the line from the Sellbuffer
TimeFrame
TimeFrame for the signal
Indicator path and name
Name of the indicator you want to use.
If it is located not in the “MQL5\Indicators" folder, the path should be specified too.
For example, if your indicator “SuperTrend.ex5” is in the “MQL5\Indicators\Market" folder, you should set the Indicator path and name = “Market\SuperTrend”.
Indicator parameters
Indicator parameters separated by commas.
Order and type of parameters must match the original order and type of indicator parameters.
String parameters must be enclosed in single quotes.
Starting from v2.58, you can use “INPUT_XX” macros to replace the parameter value with the special parameter that could be optimized.
Warning
Indicators with 'parameters groups' can't be used with parameters specified!Buy buffer number
Buybuffer — is an indicator buffer with index Buy buffer number (numeration starts from 0)
Sell buffer number
Sellbuffer — is an indicator buffer with index Sell buffer number (numeration starts from 0)
Set 1 to use the same buffer index as for Buy.
Color buffer number and index
If both Buy color buffer number and Buy color index are set (>= 0), color filtering is applied for all values in Buybuffer: if the value in the Buy color buffer number differs from Buy color index, value in Buybuffer is considered as empty.
For example, if the indicator draws arrows for both buy and sell signals using buffer #0, and applies colors to these arrows using buffer #1 (first is green, means buy, second is red, means sell), you should set:
 Signal type = On arrow / On new arrow
 Buy buffer number = 0
 Sell buffer number = 0
 Buy color buffer number = 1
 Sell color buffer number = 1
 Buy color index = 0
 and Sell color index = 1
Thus, buysignal will appear after the green arrow, and sellsignal — after red.
Another example: indicator draws color line and color arrows. If you open its settings, you will see the following:
If you go to source code, you can find something like this:
Buffer #0 (LineBuffer) corresponds to the line, buffer #1 (LineColors) — to the colors of the line.
Buffers #2 (UpBuffer) and #3 (DownBuffer) correspond to the arrows.
So, if you want to allow buys on the blue line and sells on the red line, you should set:
 Signal type = On arrow (nonempty buffer)
 Buy buffer number = 0
 Sell buffer number = 0
 Buy color buffer number = 1
 Sell color buffer number = 1
 Buy color index = 1 (because blue color index is 1, counting from 0)
 and Sell color index = 0 (because red color index is 0, counting from 0)
Or, if you want to entry on the color arrows, you should set:
 Signal type = On new arrow (nonempty after empty)
 Buy buffer number = 2
 Sell buffer number = 3
 Buy color buffer number = 1 (no need to set, because arrows of different colors are in different buffers)
 Sell color buffer number = 1 (no need to set, because arrows of different colors are in different buffers)
 Buy color index = 1 (no need to set)
 and Sell color index = 1 (no need to set)
Max/min level
If the value in the Buybuffer is greater than Buy max level, it is considered as empty.
If the value in the Buybuffer is less than Buy min level, it is considered as empty.
The same for Sellbuffer.
Levels can be used:
 for Oscillator signals:
 Stochastic in On new arrow (nonempty after empty) mode with Buy max = 20 / Sell min = 80 will generate signals on Main line cross levels 80 (sell) and 20 (buy)
 for Trend filter signals:
 MACD in On arrow (nonempty buffer) mode with Buy min = 0 / Sell max = 0 will filter all buys below 0 line and all sells above 0 level.
Set 999 to disable filtering by levels.
Reverse mode
Reverse all CustomIndy signals
Use bar
^{(starting from v2.59)}
Number of the bar to use for the signal calculation.
0 means the current (unformed) bar, 1 means the previous (last formed) bar, 2 means the bar before the previous, etc.
Default value for CustomIndy is 1.
Short indicator name, Draw in subwindow
These parameters should be set for correct work of the CP GUI (show/hide indicator by clicking on signal label).
Short indicator name must match the indicator name as it is shown in the Data window.
Draw in subwindow must be set to True for all indicators that draw in subwindows (oscillators, MACD, ADX, etc) and to False for others.
Allow negative and zero values
Set True for indicators that can contain 0 or negative value by design (for example, MACD).
Set False for indicators that draw arrows and fill empty values with zeros (not EMPTY_VALUE constant).
Optimization Inputs
^{(starting from v2.58)}
Specifying Indicator parameters, you can put “INPUT_XX” instead of the actual value of the parameter. In this case, the value of the parameter will be taken from the special parameter “INPUT_XX” from this block.
For example, you can set “Indicator parameters” for MACD as “INPUT_01,INPUT_02,INPUT_03”, and set “INPUT_01” = 12, “INPUT_02” = 26, “INPUT_03” = 9 in this block. Then, if you want to optimize MACD parameters, you can optimize values of “INPUT_01”, “INPUT_02” and “INPUT_03”.
Spread Filter
Max current spread
^{(starting from v2.05)}
Max spread (in points) (what is a “point”?) for positions opening.
Set 0 to disable the filter.
Max average spread, Seconds for averaging
^{(starting from v2.05)}
Max average spread (in points) (what is a “point”?) for positions opening and the number of seconds to calculate it.
Set 0 to disable the filter.
Apply to first open
^{(starting from v2.49)}
Set true to apply the spread filter to the open of the first position in a series.
Apply to martin
^{(starting from v2.49)}
Set true to apply the spread filter to the open of the martingale and antimartingale positions.
Apply to hedge
^{(starting from v2.59.6)}
Set true to apply the spread filter to the open of the hedge positions.
Apply to close
^{(starting from v2.60.1)}
Set true to apply the spread filter to the closing by StopLoss.
