# How to get last close price

236

Anyone have any insight on getting the close price of the last order?

I tried:

if(OrderSelect(OrdersHistoryTotal(),SELECT_BY_POS,MODE_HISTORY)==true)
{
double LastOrderClosePrice = OrderClosePrice();
}

You also need to look at

OrderCloseTime()

To find out which one was closed last and from there on you can get to the ClosePrice.

Try:

datetime last_close  = 0;
double   close_price = 0;
for(int i=OrdersHistoryTotal()-1; i>=0; i--)
{
if(!OrderSelect(i,SELECT_BY_POS,MODE_HISTORY)) continue;
if(OrderSymbol() != _Symbol) continue;
// if(OrderMagicNumber() != magic_no) continue;
datetime close_time = OrderCloseTime();
if(close_time > last_close)
{
last_close  = close_time;
close_price = OrderClosePrice();
}
}
printf("Last order was closed at %s for %f",TimeToStr(last_close),close_price);

1.  Play video Please edit your post. For large amounts of code, attach it
2. You would never write if( (2+2 == 4) == true) would you? if(2+2 == 4) is sufficient. So Don't write if(bool == true), just use if(bool) or if(!bool).
3. In history there are OrdersHistoryTotal() entries. They are numbered zero to OrdersHistoryTotal() - 1. Therefor your select will never be true. You would know that has you bothered to check your return codes What are Function return values ?

4. You assume history is ordered by date, it's not. #2 Showed you how to find the latest one for the current symbol. See also Could EA Really Live By Order_History Alone? (ubzen) - MQL4 forum
