Trade functions library designed for use in the code of scripts and Expert Advisors depending on a broker.

You can get acquainted with the Expert Advisors drawn on the basis of this library in the article "Simple Trading Systems Using Semaphore Indicators".

As a large number of the Expert Advisors using this library was placed in Code Base, it was decided to perform four variants of its program code to use these Expert Advisors with any broker who offers trading on financial markets using MetaTrader 5 Client Terminal:

  1. For brokers who offer nonzero spread and ability to set Stop Loss and Take Profit simultaneously opening a position;
  2. For brokers who offer zero spread and ability to set Stop Loss and Take Profit simultaneously opening a position;
  3. For brokers who offer nonzero spread and Stop Loss and Take Profit setting after opening a position;
  4. For brokers who offer zero spread and Stop Loss and Take Profit setting after opening a position;

All files placed in archives have one unique name - TradeAlgorithms.mqh. For the Expert Advisors in Code Base which use this library, only one variant of TradeAlgorithms.mqh file is allowed to use under its name in the terminal_data_folder\MQL5\Include\ of one client terminal!

After moving the library file all the Expert Advisors which use it should be compiled. For this, restart MetaEditor, open the Navigator window, right click on the MQL5 label and select "Compile" in the pop-up menu.
