Oh my god. So stupid.

Ok. Now i how can i compare the current time to the OrderCloseTime() in case of different Timeframes.

Since the close there should be minimum 5 Bars of the current timeframe.

Use iBarShift()  with the time to get the bar number of the close.

 This doesn't get the time of the "last trade closed" it gets the time of the trade with the highest position. datetime Last; int TotalNumberOfOrders = OrdersHistoryTotal(); // for(int i = 0; i <=TotalNumberOfOrders - 1 ; i++) // { if(OrderSelect(i,SELECT_BY_POS,MODE_HISTORY)==false) continue; // falls Zeile leer { if(OrderType()==OP_BUY && OrderType()==OP_SELL ) {Last=OrderCloseTime(); Alert(OrderCloseTime());} i <= TotalNumberOfOrders - 1 is the same as i < TotalNumberOfOrders Simplified - less operations Get in the habit of counting down - Loops and Closing or Deleting Orders - MQL4 forum You would never write if( ( (2+2) == 4 ) == true ) would you? So don't write if(bool == true). if(bool) or if(!bool) is sufficient. The && was previously mentioned. Find the trade with the newest close time. ```datetime Last=0; // None found yet. for(int i = OrdersHistoryTotal(); i >= 0 ; i--) if(    OrderSelect(i,SELECT_BY_POS,MODE_HISTORY) && (OrderType()==OP_BUY || OrderType()==OP_SELL ) && Last <= OrderCloseTime() ) {Last=OrderCloseTime(); Alert(OrderCloseTime());} if(Last == 0) Alert("No orders in history");``` No magic number make this incompatible with every other EA including itself on other charts and manual trading. Symbol Doesn't equal Ordersymbol when another currency is added to another seperate chart . - MQL4 forum
