    Hey guys, I am VERY new to MQL4 programming and am just trying to get a feel for the language. While compiling my first EA I can get it to give me an Alert message on init(), but when I put that same code in start() it gives me nothing. Can anyone explain why this is? Isn't start() supposed to run on every price quote?


    This is the code:

    int weekday = DayOfWeek();

    if(weekday >0 || weekday <6){
    Alert("It is a weekday");
