  • The MasterWindows library should be added to the \MQL4\Include\ folder. The library provides adequate operation of the interface windows you create.
  • For a better display of created interface windows, use graphical schemes with a black background.
  • This is a demo panel (a joke program) and is not intended for live accounts. However, you can modify or replace the BUYorSELL() signal generation function in accordance with your trading system, add position support function, and try to use it on a live account.
