Do you have more lines ???

What is ticket ??? What is ticket1 ???

Is your broker using 4 digits for displaying price EURUSD ?? Is your openingprice> Bid? Is it allowed to place your buystop at that price ??

What errors do you see compiling your program in the MetaEditor....?

1. You're trying to open a buy stop and immediately delete it?
2. What is ticket? (It's not saved from the OrderSend)
3. What are Function return values ? How do I use them ? - MQL4 forum
4. Have you read the Book and learned the lessons? Right now you're talking gibberish and there is no common ground to communicate.

hello devries sorry i will put the full code again and i will answer on your question:

i ddn't have more lines and i defined ticket, i compiled the code and i did't have an error but the problem is:

i tried the code on the strategie tester and the result is : 1 only buystop at price 1.2550 but should i want the programm to repeat the order when the last order closed at price 1.2255 "sure after the openigprice will >bid"

well my problem is: What do I do to make my program to repeat the order many time when the last ticket closed and the openigprice>bid?

thank you a lot.

deVries:

hello :) i want to thank you for your interest and for your time but devries when i run your code and my code in the tester strategie i found the same result, the two codes gave:

1 buystop at 1.2250 and when The system complete the process successfully he don't repeat the same order at 1.2250 when the the askprice Become below the level 1.2250 again.

//

ticket=OrderSend("EURUSD",OP_BUYSTOP,0.1,y,0,0,y+5*Point,0,0);

if(ticket>1)

OrderDelete(ticket); // i put orderDelete(ticket) when the number of ticket become higher than 1 "the server take only the first ticket and Refuses the others"

//

thank you deVries.

georgioooo:

insert the count of open trades of your EA..

If the count of open trades is zero then make

```trade = 0;
```

for you to trie first

(by the way ticket is not giving the count of your trades it can be 12344556 while there is just one open)
