Expert Advisor Creation Expert Advisors are programs that allow automation of the analytical and trading processes in the MT4 platform.
To create an Expert Advisor, select "Expert Advisor" and click "Next" to continue, as shown in Figure 2.
To add a new parameter to the Inputs field, press the "Add" button.
For each Parameter, the trader must specify the Name, Type and Initial Value, as shown in Figure 3.
To delete a parameter, highlight the parameter and press "Delete." These become the Input Variables within the Expert.
Once all the inputs have been listed, click "Finish" to continue.
A new window appears in the programming environment.
The Expert's name appears at the top of the window, and the previously entered input parameters are listed near the top of the code, as shown in Figure 4.
Specifics regarding programming are outside the scope of this tutorial; understanding programming logic and learning a specific language require significant effort.
Traders can learn more about programming in the MQL4 environment by reading the MT4 Help Guides and participating in the active MQL4 community forums.
