A Ticket number is a unique number allocated to an Order,  it is usually in the leftmost column when you look at the Trade or Account History tabs. The Ticket number is allocated by your Broker.

A Magic Number is optional but is often used within a Script or EA and is used to identify a set/group of orders that share a common attribute,  for example the Magic Number may signify that they were all placed by a specific EA running on a specific Symbol.

  1. Speak English, this isn't a limited text message on phone/twitter.
  2. If you don't want to learn the mql4 language, then find a platform that uses the language you want and go to their forum. When you registered, perhaps you missed the part about Any discussions except of concerning MetaQuotes Language 4 and auto trading are forbidden. You're off topic.
