Hi all,

 I have one issue with trailing stop.  

In code that follows when I use count down  sell trailing do not work, but if start to count up it work fine.

Any clarification regarding the above ? 

 

void Trail()
    {//0   
         
      int TrailingStop = 0.25 + StopLevel;
      double BaseProfit = 0.03;
       
        for(int OrderCounter = 0; OrderCounter <= OrdersTotal()-1; OrderCounter++)    
        //for(int OrderCounter = OrdersTotal()-1; OrderCounter >= 0; OrderCounter--)                     
           {//23
            if(!OrderSelect(OrderCounter,SELECT_BY_POS))continue;
              if(OrderType()==OP_BUY && OrderSymbol()== Symbol() 
                 && OrderMagicNumber()== MagicNumber)                                                                       
                {//24 
                 RefreshRates();           
                 if(OrderStopLoss() < (Bid - TrailingStop * pips2dbl) && (Bid - OrderOpenPrice()) >= (MinimumProfit * pips2dbl))  
                   {//25               
                   if(!OrderModify(OrderTicket(),OrderOpenPrice(),Bid - (TrailingStop * pips2dbl), OrderTakeProfit(),0))
                      Print("Buy TrailingStop Failed, error # ", GetLastError());
                   }//25
                }//24
           }//23          
            if(OrderType()==OP_SELL && OrderSymbol()== Symbol() 
               && OrderMagicNumber()== MagicNumber)              
              {//26
               RefreshRates();
              if(OrderStopLoss() > (Ask + TrailingStop * pips2dbl) && (OrderOpenPrice() - Ask) >= MinimumProfit * pips2dbl))
                {//27                  
                if(!OrderModify(OrderTicket(),OrderOpenPrice(),Ask + (TrailingStop * pips2dbl),OrderTakeProfit(),0))                 
                   Print("Sell TrailingStop Failed, error # ", GetLastError());
                }//27                                         
              }//26   
           }//0

Thank you for any light on this

Are you sure? What error do you get?

Note here  OrderStopLoss() > (Ask + TrailingStop * pips2dbl)  if SL = 0 sells will fail. Make it ( OrderStopLoss() > (Ask + TrailingStop * pips2dbl) || OrderStopLoss() < point)

If your braces are numbered correctly,  are they ?,  this, and the code that follows it,  is outside of the for loop . . .

if(OrderType()==OP_SELL && OrderSymbol()== Symbol()

Hi cyberfx.org,

 

Thank you for your prompt attention to my issue.

I have no errors in Journal tab, just when in sell the trail do not start. Right now I'm doing a test with your solution.

Raptor is right! The sells part was outside of the FOR loop.

Hi RaptorUK,

 Thank you for your attention to my issue.

In fact I need to learn once for all to get those routines right.

Taking your advice.

cyberfx.org:

Thank you for revised code.

By the way, is there a need to include spread plus stoplevel in this routine or because the order already satisfy  the distance from price having those values in mind is not a need here ?

Once these days need to pay all of you a lunch.....

best regards

Luis
