I guess you are trying to avoid opening an order during the last 4 hours of Friday. If this is the case you could do something like:

- get the current brokerage time with https://docs.mql4.com/dateandtime/TimeCurrent

- check if it is Friday with https://docs.mql4.com/dateandtime/TimeDayOfWeek

- if so then check if it is after 19:00 - use https://docs.mql4.com/dateandtime/TimeHour to get the hour

- and if this is true as well, then skip opening trades...

sounds long to describe it, but it is actually just 1 line of code...

You may want to do a search, I am pretty sure this question has been asked and answered before...

thank you
