I really don't want to be writing another thread about this, but I cannot figure out where I am going wrong?

Am I being an idiot!? But as far as I am concerned, this EA should be working on the CORRECT symbol that is associated with the open position. Therefore, the line at the bottom where I have written notes, should be printing the correct corresponding price!?

int start()
 {
   if(IsNewCandle())
      {
      CheckForMaTrade();//signals, deletions and candle trails only need checked on a new candle.
      }

To give you an example of what the prints look like:

They're all using the same EA!?

Do you perform an OrderSelect() in this function ? CloseHalfOrder1()

And the EAs are on different chart Symbols . . . Symbol() is the symbol of the chart the EA is running on . . .

OK, I think I see what you are saying . . . the target prices look wrong for those symbols . . .

Ok so here is the prints:

2013.11.07 11:17:08     Trend Fishing - V1 - Refined Exits GBPJPY,H1: After other functions, Order selected = 2154301 symbol = GBPJPY
2013.11.07 11:17:08     Trend Fishing - V1 - Refined Exits GBPJPY,H1: Order selected = 2154301 symbol = GBPJPY

Thing is, right now, I no longer have multiple positions opened. I've restarted the platform and it's just identified the correct targets it needs to be focusing on.

I've just made 15 individual EA's that all contain different sequence of MagicNumbers to make sure they are all working only on the orders that are MagicNumber == MagicNumber and OrderSymbol() == Symbol().... Still cannot figure out why it was doing that though?

Guess I need to wait and see on multiple positions again....

(Thank you very much for your speedy response - really appreciate your help!!)

The loops in these functions loop through all the orders, if the last one they select is not for Symbol() then the order you will then have selected will be wrong for Symbol() . . . the Prints you added will show this when you have multiple orders open on different symbols . .

I don't think I am following you?

... For the sake of making sure this now works and squashing it completely, if I gave each EA its individual magic number that corresponds to just one market, will it resolve this problem with multiple positions? (i.e. no two magic numbers are the same, so when it crosses If( OrderMagicNumber() == MagicNumber ) it cannot get muddled up with thinking it is working on different pairs?)
