Important: Bug detected & fixed!

!!! Everyone who’s downloaded any version of indicator before 2010-06-11, please RE-DOWNLOAD it and replace with old(buggy) one !!!


Hello friends, such a nice morning here…
what a pity – BIG BUG DETECTED!

Olexiy D. wrote me a mail about strange thing – after he started using Cute Point and Figure indicator – his hard disk free space started to disappear very quickly.
So,  i’ve checked the source code and found one big  mistake made by me.  Some of print functions, which were used by me when i was creating and testing indicator, have been overlooked. That print functions were filling up .log files,placed in “Program Files\MetaTrader 4\experts\logs” folder, to very huge sizes(> 20Gb)

Bug was activated automatically when the option  X_O_view was set to TRUE. Default was FALSE so if you were not changing that option your hard drive space was not touched!

*Anyway,  i suggest all of you to check your “Program Files\MetaTrader 4\experts\logs” folder or if you are  VISTA/WIN7 user also  “C:\Users\sid\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files \MetaTrader 4\experts\indicators” folders and watch what is the size of .log files placed there.

Now indicator is recompiled and safe. The bug  is fixed. I’ve reuploaded the indicator.

!!! Everyone who has downloaded any version of indicator before 2010-06-11 , please RE-DOWNLOAD it and replace with old(buggy) one. !!!

For those who don’t know  how to do it. Close MetaTrader 4 and follow installation instruction and overwrite all the files.

*For Vista and Win7 users:  find and replace indicator(Cute_PointAndFigure.ex4 file) at “Program Files\MetaTrader 4\experts\indicators” and  “C:\Users\sid\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\MetaTrader 4\experts\indicators” folder.

If everything is done right then  after indicator replacement and  MetaTrader 4 restart – “experts” section must show only few(2-5) lines  of text. Look at screenshot below.

Many thanks goes to Olexiy D. for his observation and indifference!  🙂
Sorry friends for  discomfort. Have a nice day!

    Hi Guys.

    After installing I get my P&F chart but then my Metatrader platform hangs, you can’t do a thing.

    Any ideas.


    PS. My metrader is a 4 digit one and I did download the 4 digit indicator

    • John hi.
      I think your problem is too big number of bars, viewed on chart. So, you’ll need to download/install newest version of indicator and decrease number of “MAX bars in chart” of your MT4. How to do it properly – follow installation video instructions.
      *Pay attention at 2:55min of the video – this step’ll optimize your indicator’s work and’ll save your CPU speed. It is also strongly recommended for those, who use more than 1 chart with Cute Point and Figure indicator.
