This report is typically issued on Wednesday's at As this is an important report for my EA, the only way was to check an online service to validate the release date. Next is to define a structure in your code to store the events. This is placed somewhere at the top of your code which will declare 'DailyEvents' as a global variable with a maximum number of stored event defined by the 'MaxDailyEvents' variable.
As I only wanted their calendar for the day and not the default all week , we can do so by setting the 'day' parameter of the request to today's date and sending the request.
Then we send the request, check the error code if any and convert the returned character array to a string. This makes it easier to parse the HTML code.
If there's no error, we then convert the character array 'result' to an string for better parsing. See below for it's definition. Ok, now that we've made sure the calendar returned is for today's date, let's start parsing each of the table row and extract the elements we need.
Namely event time, event currency, event impact and event title. Once we have parsed all table rows and reached the end of the calendar, we need to display the events on the chart. If the event is in the future, I want a vertical line displayed and if in the past, no line. If the events that are on the future, I want to notify the user of an upcoming in event if it's within 5 minutes of the current time and remove the vertical line.
This is done by adding some code in your 'start ' function of the EA or indicator. And finally, we need to get the daily events. This is done by adding a line in your OnInit function. You can of course modify the code to display all events for the currency pair or add an input parameters to your indicator or EA to specify which impact to display high, medium or low and of course add a check for midnight turn around to get a new list of daily event, but I'll let you play with that: Yes I see it the marker perfectly now.
However, the marker shows well for the Eastern Canada time zone, but not for this time zone. In the futures markets data on trade volumes a reported with a one day delay. To compensate for this, many analysts use the tick volume indicator tick volume. StochPosition is an indicator for MetaTrader 4 based on Stochastic Indicator, which shows the position and direction of Stochastic in M5 timeframe up to W1 timeframe. Once the data for each row has been extracted, we add it to the DailyEvents structure.

I give up and I really wish that you could add these features. Ivvy 27 Sep at Please please comment on this some or everyone.. I'm a little spooked to be honest as I never thought it would actually happen , I've literally got thousands of hours of watching the charts and also I back tested my theory and system on the market and it never failed..
No trades even needed to be left in the market for longer than 2 months and that's worst worst case scenario. Ticks Volume Indicator In the futures markets data on trade volumes a reported with a one day delay. It has a lot of settings.More...
