Here are my scripts to quickly switch between templates. Place the scripts in your MQL4Directory/Scripts folder. Replace the name of the templates with your own. Then assigned your preferred hotkeys.
Not much but I but I figured it be useful to those who wish to quickly cycle between templates. I use it to switch between my regular setup and the same setup but with a trade manager EA attached.
For some reason, my terminal freezes whenever I try to switch symbols while the EA is attached, using the symbol changer indicator from this forum. So these scripts are my workaround.

I used to trade on a brokers own platform using MT4 just for the charts, i now changed to trading exclusively on MT4 on a new broker. There is an option called slippage on this EA, i read what slippage is but i don't really understand what this option does, either i didn't understood what it is or we shouldn't control it.
Slippage is the amount of points an order, when executed (filled) by the broker, can deviate from the quoted price. Both pending, or instant.
It means that if you set the slippage to 30 points, the broker will attempt to fill the order at the quoted price, but if prices has already moved from the quote (volatile markets),they can fill your order withing the quote price plus or minus the slippage. If they manage to fill it within that, bam you have your order, if they can't fill it (the price has moved from the original quote and your slippage) it is cancelled.

Slippage gets sent with all orders... EA (with ordersend() or an input in the ea setting) or pending and instant with the MT4 setting
This setting in tools->options->[trade] tab, under deviation for this,

When the market is very very volatile your order (instant,pending or (any EA) will likely slip and get or not get filled.

Also if you are on a (very) bad connection, you send the order but the market is moving violently, the broker still wants and has to fill your order so they check the slippage and fill or not fill your order.

I think that's it. I tried to explain, hope it helps

Same here. I feel your pain. I'm currently using Trade Shell. It's free on the MQL5 marketplace for both MT4 and MT5. You can use symbol changer indicators with the EA attached on the mt5 platform but not on MT4(whenever I try the chart freezes).

One thing to note on MT5, when you change symbols while the EA is attached, sometimes the trade gets closed. Not sure if it comes from the EA or the symbol changer indicator but it can happen. I wish it allowed you to also change symbols from the EA.

But Trade Shell is still the best free option I've come across. ... ile+Seller
