An MQH file is an include file used by MetaTrader, an online trading platform. It is similar to an .H file referenced by a C/C++ program. It may contain constants, variables, and functions that can be referenced by a MetaTrader program. MQH files allow programmers to save commonly used objects and functions in a single file that can be referenced by multiple programs.

While MQH files are used by MetaTrader, they are typically created and edited with MetaEditor. They are saved by default in the same directory as the corresponding .MQ4 or .MQ5 source file.
