I have error type 130 during OrderSend function, can you help me to fix it?

void stampa(string erroreIn,int lastErrIn){

   string comment = erroreIn + IntegerToString(lastErrIn);
   Print(comment);
   
}


Based on backtesting seems that valSLBuy expression is not executed, the issue I think that the code inside the below If is not executed:

 if ( condizione1Buy() && !condizione1){
   
       condizione1 = true;
       
       EntryPointBuy = ((High[1] - Low[1]) / 2) + Low[1]; // 50% del range candela set-up 1
       
       valSLBuy = ( Low[1] - ((High[1] - Low[1]) / 2));     // Stop loss 150% sotto la candela 1 
       
       Print("valSL:", valSLBuy);
       
       valTPBuy = (High[1] - Low[1]) + High[1]; 
         
   }



Thanks a lot

You buy at the Ask and sell at the Bid. You can not place a pending order closer to the market than MODE_STOPLEVEL * _Point. Requirements and Limitations in Making Trades - Appendixes - MQL4 Tutorial

I run Mode_Stopelevel and the result is 0.0

So OpenPrice-SL ≥ StopLevel condition is true, no?

valSLBuy = ( Low[1] - ((High[1] - Low[1]) / 2));

  1. Not the SL, the open price. You are trying to open a pending order at the market.
  2. If stop level is zero that means it is floating (not constant.) I substitute twice the spread.
