Hello, 

Could you please help me why my orders are opened more than 0.1 on every hour as I would like to have actually ?  Plus, the codes do not open order on every hour sometimes. Why do you think this happens ?

Thank you.

Tidy your code up, it looks like a lot of cut and pastes

 start() returns an integer, so why are you returning either a bool or INIT_SUCCEEDED

 

if ( (Hour()== 0 || Hour()== 1 || Hour()== 2 || Hour()== 3 || Hour()== 4                     
   || Hour()== 5 || Hour()== 6 || Hour()== 7 || Hour()== 8 || Hour()== 9
   || Hour()== 10 || Hour()== 11 || Hour()== 12 || Hour()== 13 || Hour()== 14
   || Hour()== 15 || Hour()== 16 || Hour()== 17 || Hour()== 18 || Hour()== 19
   || Hour()== 20 || Hour()== 21 || Hour()== 22 || Hour()== 23  ) && (Minute()==0) && (Seconds()==0) )

 You've covered every possible Hour, so what's the point?

It is exactly the same as

if (Minute()==0) && Seconds()==0) )

That means that if there is not an incoming tick in the first second of the hour, the code will not be executed

What do you suggest me to do so if start() returns an integer ?

My point is to open order on every hour. 

Is it possible to make the code executed in the first second of the hours even though there is no tick at that time ?

As there is little or no apparent logic to your code, it is difficult to offer any advice.

  static int static_hour=Hour();
  if(static_hour!=Hour())
     {
     static_hour=Hour()
     //New Hour so can check for a new trade condition
     }

 will execute code only on the first tick of a new hour

You have already replied my question. 

I appreciate it.
