I really like this EA and I use it in grid trading. However, one problem I have grid trading is sometimes I end up with say an open buy at 1.90 and an open sell at 1.90 on GBP. These 2 orders in essense only use up margin because they cancel each other out. I was wondering if for your next version you could include an option for deleting 2 open orders if they are the same price in different directions as explained above.
Also I have a situation where I have an open sell GBP with a loss of -29 pips and an open buy with a loss of -8 pips and the EA shows I have a total loss in pips of -21 when it should show loss of -37. The total dollars loss is correct at -$37.00 but loss in pips is wrong. Could you look into that too. Thanks.
Nice work on the EA.
Thanks for your interest in my EA! I noticed that pip counting bug myself; I'll redo the calculations for it. And I'll consider doing the closing of "redundant" orders.
Look forward to it!
Can you add to Comment SWAP ifo for BUY and SELL?
It's already been implemented into my next version, due out very soon!
CloseBuys/CloseSells at Profit
Good job Ryanklefas,
I noticed this EA is really versatile and packed full of options, excellent. My humble request is if you can add an option that is useful in a basket of trades/hedging, this will be based on total buy profit and total sell profit in dollars.
Since you have CloseBuys and CloseSells options already built in, in a basket of trades one should be able to choose to CloseBuys at a certain dollar profit like wise CloseSells at certain dollar profit too.
extern int CloseBuys = 30; // profit in dollars
extern int CloseSells = 30; // profit in dollars
I hope you understand what I mean, I do that manually just looking for an option to be able to automate it.
My next version will be able to handle exactly that. When it is finished I will post or PM the instructions on how to do it. Also, do you mean $30 in buy order profit and $30 in sell order profit, or just $30 profit in general. Either way, the next one can do it!
Thanks for your prompt response, I think breaking it down for each order will be better, that is $30 in BuyOrderProfit and $30 in SellOrderprofit so that one may choose to use different amounts for either side sometimes depending on conditions.
I have idea.
Can you add features..options for split..partial close profit.
For example... after x pips partial close any proc position.
+30pips then close 50proc position?
hi, I'm new to EA's so please forgive my ignorance
I ran the EA on a buy position i had already opened, set it to 10 pip B/E
& 15 pip trailing stop I noticed however, the "loss pips" was going up as my profit went up?
anyway, it went past 15 pips profit but nothing seemed to be happening,
on rechecking settings I found I hadn't set "allow live trading" (doh!)
now it closed the position straight away?
