1. Open the appropriate chart for your Expert Advisor following these steps. In this example, we are attaching the GBP/JPY 15-Min Trend-Following EA to the GBP/JPY 15-Minute Chart.
A. Choose the appropriate currency pair from File, then click "New Chart" at the top of the menu.
B. A list of currency pairs will appear in a pop-up window. Choose the appropriate currency pair. In this example, it's GBP/JPY.
C. Then choose the appropriate candlestick time frame for your EA (robot). The time frame will always be included in the EA file name. (Note: If your EA runs on Renko bars, it will not use a time frame. See the Renko tutorial for this).
3. Locate your Roulette TRADER EA in the Navigator window. Click and drag it onto your chart (or double click it).
5a. Now click on the Inputs tab. This displays all of the variable settings for the EA, beginning with the Money Management Settings. You may change the money management settings directly from here. The 3 pink arrows show the settings used when Roulette Trader Money Management = True.
To use the "Fixed Lots" setting, change "Roulette Trader Money Management" to False. This will disable the RT Money Management and use the Fixed Lot setting on every trade.
5b. Here you can customize the trading hours settings (StartHour, EndHour, StartMinute, EndMinute).
7. When your EA is attached to the chart, the name will appear in the top right corner, with additional EA details on the left. The currency pair and time frame will also appear on the top left. Make sure the currency pair and time frame match your EA. A frown face on the top right means that Live Trading is disabled.
9. If you have "Enable Live Trading" checked in the properties window but you still have a sad face in the top right corner of your chart, click the AutoTrading button in the top menu to activate live trading. This should give you a smiley face. You may also use this button to quickly turn On/Off live trading, assuming Live Trading is enabled in the properties window. It will not enable if the properties box is unchecked.
