Hi

I want to do the following in code

So if my indicators indicate that I should add to my current trade again then I place trade in the same direction only if 30minutes have past

I am doing the following - this code does work yet - it is just in design phase - I don't know how to add 30 minutes to my last order

This is for an EA only working on the current pair

int start()

{

int cnt, ticket, total, stop1;

static datetime lasttime

total=OrdersTotal();

for(cnt=0;cnt<total;cnt++)

{

//Determine the time of the last OrderClose

if (OrderCloseTime > lasttime + 30)

{

lasttime = orderclosetime

}//if (OrderCloseTime)

}

Now I want to say

if (Curtime() > lasttime + 30 minutes)

{

}

pls help

I think that looks fine, but in the check for the OrderCloseTime,

I don't see why you need the extra 30 minutes.

If the newest OrderCloseTime is more recent than the previous one, then it should be lasttime.

if (Curtime() > lasttime + 30*60)

Basic question ...

Hi,

I'm new with MetaTrader and have a basic question:

I want to limit the open positions in my expert-advisor to only 1 position at a time - but I want that limitation per symbol, so if I'll run another expert-advisor on another symbol, It will open a new position on that symbol.

In another words, I want to be able to open 1 positions for all the symbols, but not more than 1 position for a symbol (And I'm talking about many expert-advisor on many symbols...)

How can I do It ?

I saw the "totaltrades" function, but from the documentation I understood that this function applys to the account and not for the current symbol,

so "if totaltrades=1 then exit;" will cause to 1 position at a time for all the symbols...

1 positions for all the symbols

int total=OrdersTotal();

if(total<1)

{

}

But one position for one symbol or for one chart opened?

well, one per chart is the best ...

But if it can't be done, then 1 per symbol is also good...

1 per symbol

...

for (int i=0; i<OrdersTotal(); i++) {

if (OrderSymbol()==Symbol() )

return(0);

....
