    The ADX EA Pro does not have the MaxOpenOrders / MaxOpenTrades function…

    Please advise.

    1. Yannick says:

      No, the EA only has the function listed in the Function Overview table on the bottom of the page.

  2. jcbillion says:

    Hello Yannick, I’m very interested in purchasing the pro version of the ADX EA but I would like to know if specifically this exit strategy is available in the pro version

    Exit buy(long) trade when -DI line crosses exit level and Exit sell(short) trade when +DI line crosses exit level.

    This Exit strategy would work perfectly well with my intended trading system.

    Thanks for your anticipated reply

    1. Yannick says:

      The “+DI/-DI Breaks Exit Level” works the exact opposite way. You exit strategy would require a custom modification.
