You gave us the code...

However, you did not give entry specifications....

We need YOUR CODE versus WHAT YOU ACTUALLY WANTED.

Do you understand???

Besides this, USELOT() is not included....

If you are not entering on specific prices, how are you entering...

SPORADIC RANDOM TIMING?????

Your function { } are probably not functional either.....

Start is a special function that is called every tick(ish). You have problems with { missing on init() and start(). You also need return(0); at the end of each of these special functions. You should use Print() a lot when first coding to make sure it is doing what you think it should and you should use GetLastError() to test for any error codes.
