I've answered a few of your questions before. It looked like your were trying to write you own which is great. What's the problem you're having with this one?

Thank you for helping. I'm not sure how to set it up to open One BuySop and One SellStop at the same time based on the medium price value of the previous candle.

What is wrong with my BuyStop order?

ticket=OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_SELLSTOP,Lots,Bid-Distance,Slippage,Ask+StopLoss*Point+Distance,Bid-TakeProfit*Point-Distance,"",MagicNumber,0,Red);

I get invalid Stoploss

Guess that your "distance" is a number of pips like 50. If so, you must *Point in order to add it to any price value.

Can you guys check this EA, in tester I don't see it opening both Buy and Sell at the same time ?? And I don't think the CloseHour set in my order function command for order Expiration is working.

I can't get it to open two orders at the same time? One BuyStop and One SellStop

Thanks

This EA does open Two orders at the specified time but what is all this for;

extern int take_profit = 100;//default 40;

extern int open_long = 23;//default 18; current is 15 + spread(4)

extern int open_short = 20;//default 22; current is 15

extern int stop_long = 30;//default 22; current is 20

extern int stop_short = 30;//default 18; current is 20 + spread(4)

Don't need it all. Can someone clean it up a bit. Just have it open the Buy/Sell Stop orders at a certain time and pip gap, and set a pending order expire of a couple hours.

Thanks

CurrentTime() - OrderClosetime() problem

I'm having some problems getting my EA to wait a specific period of time between trades. I know I'm supposed to use the two variables listed above but i can't get it to work properly (especially in back tests). I know I'm not referencing previously closed orders correctly.

If anyone can help me insert the proper code i would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Hi,

I moved your post to this thread. I think the subject match with your question and maybe you could find some answer.

I got this script but would like it to be able to place trades at specific times (but also would like to be able to just run the script without the timer… sort of like timer=0 or something) to play London open… without needing to wake up.

Also, how easy would it be to put in a couple of other functions? Like moving the stop to break even at something like 5 pips… possibly a built in trailingstop possibly?

I appreciate everyone’s time looking into this! I'm learning to code but honestly… I'm not that good at it!

As always... I appreciate your help!!

here is the code…

Post moved to this thread. I hope you'll find what you need.

Great ea with no indicator

Hello all,

I have no experience with programming but with trading.

Is there a EA Programmer who can make me a EA that opens on a specific time a sell and a buy market order.

EA should have following settings:

extern TimeToTrades = 01:00

extern StopLoss = 50

extern TakeProfit = 50

extern TrailingStop = 35

I think its very easy to code this if you have a little bit of MQL4 knowedge...

Would be great for a great System!

Help me to do it and i ll share with you the profitable method.

Regards

MisterFX
