Can someone help me with code that will only place one order between 0 to 24 hours? I want to code an MT4 EA to place one order per each 24 hour day. Whenever an order is triggered by EA during the day, EA can not place another order until after 24:00 Midnight.

int tradeDay=0;

int start()
{ if(tradeDay != TimeDay(curTime())) tradeDay=0;

..

if(tradeDay==0)
{ if(BuyInCondition())
{ OrderSend(..);
tradeDay = TimeDay(curTime());
}
}
}

I have a similar code and works fine, but know I want a one sell and one buy per day, I don't how code this, I've tried this, but dosen't work because this code makes only one order per day. This is only an example, I'm learning.
if(TimeDayOfYear(TimeCurrent())!=DayOfLastBuyTrade && Ask==buystart && Ask>iBands(NULL,0,20,1,0,PRICE_CLOSE,MODE_UPPER,0)){
         OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_BUY,getLotSize(),Ask,2,buystart-sl,buystart+tp,"Comment",MagicNumber,0,CLR_NONE);     
        DayOfLastBuyTrade=TimeDayOfYear(TimeCurrent());
      }
     
      
      else if(TimeDayOfYear(TimeCurrent())!=DayOfLastSellTrade && Bid==sellstart && Bid<iBands(NULL,0,20,1,0,PRICE_CLOSE,MODE_LOWER,0)){
         OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_SELL,getLotSize(),Bid,2,sellstart+sl,sellstart-tp,"CABLEBOT_v1.2",MagicNumber,0,CLR_NONE);
         DayOfLastSellTrade=TimeDayOfYear(TimeCurrent());
      }
