Hello, i have next code and as title says i would like to have the expiry from pending to be used for the open position.

eg.: I open pending at 2:15 with expiry at 3:15. If position will be open at 3:14 i would like to be close at 3:15.

void ClosePosition()
{
   int ticket = OrderTicket();

   {
      if(OrderSelect(ticket,SELECT_BY_TICKET))
      {
         if(OrderSymbol()==Symbol() && OrderMagicNumber()== 0)
         {
            
               if(OrderType()==OP_BUYLIMIT)
               {
                  int a=OrderOpenTime();
               }
               if(OrderType()==OP_SELLLIMIT)
               { 
                  int b=OrderOpenTime();
               }
               
               
               if((OrderType()==OP_BUY)&&(TimeCurrent() - a > maxDuration * ( 60) ))
                  {
                     OrderClose(OrderTicket(),OrderLots(),Bid,2,Red);
                  }
                  
               if((OrderType()==OP_SELL)&&(TimeCurrent() - b > maxDuration * ( 60) )) 
                  { 
                     OrderClose(OrderTicket(),OrderLots(),Ask,2,Red);
                  }
                  
                
          }
      }
   }
}

I tried to work with this but have no success, any idea about what should i change in my code or if there is anything right in the flow of code?

Thanks,

 Why do you have the loop? you don't use i at all.

Where does the variable ticket get its value from?

Must be some sort of rookie mistake.

I forget to delete some lines, i tried with Select_by_pos earlier but it won`t work because the position won`t be the same. The loop line is deleted.

Ticket should be get from a file? As i read from topics, it is easier to use select_by_pos but this won't work in my case. Do you have any ideas how to deal with it? (i am not sure if i include the ordersend in code i will be able to get it from there).

Or should i call as a pair, because i will have only one open order from each currencies. So i start a loop for pos and symb for each currencies to search for pendings, and save the orderopentime than i should make another loop for pos for each order opened and compare current time with the orderopentime from pendings? It is something that i tried up before, but i should include the loops now. It will works better like this maybe?

Thank you for your time

  1. OrderClose(OrderTicket(),OrderLots(),Bid,2,Red);
    
    
    Check your return codes (OrderSelect) What are Function return values ? How do I use them ? - MQL4 forum and Common Errors in MQL4 Programs and How to Avoid Them - MQL4 Articles
  2. If this doesn't execute:
    if(OrderType()==OP_BUYLIMIT){
      int a=OrderOpenTime();
    }
    
    What does this do?
    if((OrderType()==OP_BUY)&&(TimeCurrent() - a > maxDuration * ( 60) ))
        {
           OrderClose(OrderTicket(),OrderLots(),Bid,2,Red);
        }

My post was intended to make you think about your code and rectify the first mistakes that you have made.

Then we can talk about other mistakes such as variable a is given a value if the order is a buy limit, then you try to use the variable if the order is a buy. This cannot work, because if the order is a buy, no value will be assigned to a

EDIT: took me a while to write my post and William has already pointed out the mistake in the code regarding variable a
