You don't need to build it, just install it by double clicking on the downloaded file.
@RsiAtr II: 18 Sep 2014, 17:12
Dear Traders, All algorithms that you download from cTDN are already compiled. Once you install cBot to the platform (by double clicking on the file) it is ready to be used. You need to compile (build) cBot only if you made a change in the source code. If you do not change code of the algorithm you do not need to compile (build) it.

Your indicator cannot be opened. Please reupload it.

Yes, you can specify AutoRescale = false for Indicator attribute

Please use GetIndexByExactTime method instead of iterating all indexes. It will speed up your indicator.
@Golden Dragon: 17 Jan 2014, 11:16
Hello, Those are actually warnings not errors. We will fix that in the future releases. You can use the downloaded cBot without even building it. The new method of downloading and installing cBots and Indicators does not require you to build them unless you need to modify the code.

You may specify the timezone in the Indicator Attribute [Indicator(IsOverlay = true, AutoRescale = false, TimeZone = TimeZones.UTC)]

@Cross Broker cTrader Mobile 4.5 Released: 17 Aug 2022, 09:21
We are delighted to announce the new cTrader Mobile 4.5 release, which, among other features, now offers the cross broker functionality.
Additionally, the update provides an opportunity for Deal Sharing, which allows you to share your success via multiple social media channels. The version also features a series of chart improvements for a superior technical analysis, and a mobile deal history filter for increased convenience. Last but not least, the IOS version now comes with a Blotter, just like its Android counterpart.
Cross-broker functionality allows traders to now access all their existing accounts through a single cross-broker application, and trade with them within one app, with no need to open multiple cTrader applications and switch between them.
Mobile Deal Sharing
Enables you to share your success via a selection of social media, thanks to the native sharing tool. The shared image contains a deal map and the most important parameters of the deal.
Mobile History Filter
Deal history can now be filtered by dates and sorted by several deal parameters. Additionally, column names in History Screen are now also tabable and sort grid content.
Mobile Chart Improvements
Two new types of chart drawings have been added: Triangle and Arrow line, for greater possibilities in technical chart analysis. Additionally, an option to place Price Alert directly in the chart using Horizontal Line, and ways to edit drawing settings and coordinate them without closing the chart have been added.
Mobile iOS Blotter
Allows our iOS users to view trading signals, market news and important account events all in one convenient format.
The version also comprises a series of bug fixes and performance improvements.
@cTrader Web 4.3 Has Been Released!: 04 Aug 2022, 12:13
We are glad to inform you that cTrader Web 4.3 has now been released.
Among other features, this update includes the addition of account names for your convenience, the closing volume of positions - so you can view the closing volumes of your positions in balance currency, as well as the ability to place pending orders via QuickTrade buttons on the chart, and the addition of the new chart type - Area. These, along with several other features, are part of unionising cTrader Web and Desktop experiences, to make them equivalently smooth and convenient for our traders.
Create Account Name
Users can now create names for their accounts for maximum convenience. The name is created in settings and displayed in account parameters instead of account number. Just like account number, account name can too be hidden.
“Closing Volume” column in History tab of Trade Watch
“Closing Volume” column has been added to the default settings of the History tab, in order to show users the volume of a closed position not only in lots, but also in balance currency.
Second click on same tool to cancel selection
Users can now disable the selected function in the chart toolbar by clicking on the same button again, as is done in the Desktop application, as opposed to having to click on another element of the toolbar.
Drag Orders from Chart Quick Trade
Users can now drag pending orders from Chart Quick Trade buttons on the chart, just like in cTrader Desktop.
Area Chart type
Area chart type has been added to the chart types too. The Area chart type is similar to the line chart, with the difference being that the area below the line chart is filled with a specific color. You can use the area chart to easily visualize the long term past movement of the price.
Web Synchronized Crosschair
The Synchronized Crosshair tool allows you to drag the crosshair on one chart while replicating it on multiple open charts, making multi-timeframe technical analysis much more efficient and productive.
We also added an option to enable/disable synchronous crosshair on any chart, in the context menu - Viewing Options - Synchronize Crosshair.

@What's New in cTrader Desktop 4.3: 30 Jun 2022, 10:04
We are delighted to announce the new cTrader Desktop 4.3 release, packed with a wide variety of technical analysis tools for the trader, including new chart types and trading convenience enhancements!
With the new version, cTrader Desktop now also supports account names, eliminating the need for traders to memorise account numbers, and adds a variety of technical analysis tools, including superior-analysis-intended charts, among which the HLC chart type and Area chart type, and the synchronized crosshair feature, useful for multi-frame trading.
Additionally, holidays and future contract expiration dates can now be added in the Market Hours window by brokers, allowing traders more transparency in symbol data, and ability to plan their trading activities more efficiently.
Account Names are now supported
Users are now able to name their accounts, eliminating the need to remember their account numbers. It will help set up their list of accounts as they want: either per strategy or per group of symbols, simplifying account management.
HLC Chart Type
HLC chart type has been added to the chart types providing yet another chart option to traders. An HLC bar is a vertical line connecting the High and the Low price points representing the range of an instrument's price movement over a defined interval. A short horizontal bar, perpendicular to the High Low, shows the price at which the instrument closed.
Holidays & expiration days in the Market Hours window
Holidays, set up by the broker, will appear on the calendar on the days they occur. Traders will also be able to see information about expiration dates of futures contracts. This results in more transparency in symbol data, and ability to plan trading activities more efficiently.
Added Chart Type: Area
Area chart type has been added to the chart types too. The Area chart type is similar to the line chart, with the difference being that the area below the line chart is filled with a specific colour. Traders can use the area chart to easily visualise the long term past movement of the price.
Area charts have several key uses. Firstly, they can depict the growth of an investment over time, making them a common tool to showcase a fund's past performance. Secondly, area charts can be used as a trading instrument chart for price behavior analysis.
The Area Chart, also known as a Mountain Chart - is one of the best options of how to look at a fund's past performances, making it easy to read and use for the future deals.
The Synchronized Crosshair tool allows traders to drag the crosshair on one chart while replicating it on multiple open charts, making multi-timeframe technical analysis much more efficient and productive.
MessageBox in Automate API
From now on, algo developers can use the MessageBox to interact with users. It replicates the API of standard MessageBox from WPF, without any limitations for developers, such as access rights to user PC, and perfectly fits the style and color-scheme of the cTrader interface.
Arrow Chart Drawing Tool
The arrow chart drawing tool allows you to point out features of the chart, typically either price movements or indicator/study movements.
Chart Sorting in different Chart Mods
You can now sort & synchronize the charts in different chart mods - Single, Multi, Free.
@Updated Strategy Rank: 27 Jun 2022, 15:48
We would like to announce that with the latest release of cTrader Copy, we have introduced some changes in cTrader Copy Strategy Rank calculation. The changes are the following
Extend Formula with Fee Parameters
Many traders consider the Performance Fee to be the most fair for the followers, so strategies which apply Management Fees and/or Volume Fees have been downgraded in the Rank calculation.
Increase the Influence of the Current ROI over the Historical ROI
Strategy Rank has been modified to place more emphasis on the current ROI over the historical ROI. It is much more important for a follower to see strategies which are performing well here and now, and not those that once traded well in the past.
