Hello mql4 coders. I myself have some knowledge of this codes but I think have reached my limit of getting this EA to do just what I want.

So am pushing it open to everyone who knows more than I do to help.

Its kind of simple with plain words.

1. The EA is meant to buy if the last two candles are bullish and sell if the last two candles are bearish.

2. Close any trade entered at the close of same candle, which means the current candle.

3. Stop trading if there are three candles in same direction [1,2,3]. Untill a candle closes against the directional candles ending the either bullish or bearish candle, EA should then resume trading.

The EA does open the trades correctly but never closes the trade according to no 2 stated above.

No 3 stated above has not been coded at all, I used an Expert Advisor Builder and really dont know how to fix in no 3.

Thats the problem I would love to fix guys, 2 and 3.

Here the Codes of the EA. Would really appreciate any effort from you all on this and not just for me alone but many more people who find this codes usefull.

2. Close any trade entered at the close of same candle, which means the current candle.

Use BUTTON SRC for showing code

The close of the candle is the latest tick of the candel.

Every new tick becomes so the newest latest tick.

What you want to know is basically the same as the close price of candel 1 when candel 0 opens

You got the idea, but I dont understand what you mean by BUTTON SRC. Have searched for the meaning, of no such.

Could you write the correction code into the EA for all to see and so I can test it to see if it closes the trade correctly.

Thanks for the comment deVries.
