What is an Expert Advisor?
An Expert Advisor is a trading system (mechanical trading system, automated trading system, forex strategy) that runs on MetaTrader. It is written in MQL code.
Expert advisors have an mql4 extension (to compare Word files have a .doc extension). After the expert advisor or EA is compiled, a new file is created with extension ex4 - this is the compiled expert advisor.
Usually eas can be found in C:/Program Files/MetaTrader/experts (or in C:/Program Files/MetaTrader [your broker name]/experts
Coders or programmers write ea code in MetaEditor. They use the MQL language. NoProgra also creates eas in MQL but you do not need to code, program, or write MQL code. With NoProgra you create the ea visually in natural language and generate the MQL code (mq4 file and ex4 file).

-After you are comfortable with the results you are ready to trade real money.

I used MT4 before and know the shift parameter, where is it in NoProgra?
The shift parameter is too confusing so we called bars ago. 0 bars ago means you use the current bar. 1 bars ago means you use the previous bar.

How to fix error 130?
Error 130 is related to invalid stops. Probably your stops are too small or you use an ECN. Increase your stops or set the EA in ECN mode (see in EA inputs in MT4).
