How does a novice in easylanguage coding go about getting a metatrader code converted to easylanguage? 10 easylanguage service won't even return my emails. Does anybody help in this regards or point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.

I've got the easylanguage code for the sinewave indicator and I wanted the support and resistance lines to match to show on the price chart.

Here's the support resistance lines of code in metatrader so you might see if its difficult. It is to me. : )


//| Sinewave with Support & Resitance.mq4
//| Algorithm taken from book
//| "Cybernetics Analysis for Stock and Futures"
//| by John F. Ehlers

#property indicator_separate_window
#property indicator_buffers 3
#property indicator_color1 Red
#property indicator_color2 Blue
#property indicator_color3 Yellow

#property indicator_minimum -1
#property indicator_maximum 1
#property indicator_level1 0

Looks pretty simple to convert for someone with experience in EL.

You may trying dropping into the Create your EasyLanaugage Indicator for Free post ( ) and see if someone can help there.

do you have a URL for the code above? looks interesting and might be something i look into coding myself to learn EL (I'm a newb in the language).
