Hi all

I faced an issue with mql4 when I tried to write a simple code triggering a signal for entering into a position based on specific set of rules (the simplified code is below). the problem is that despite the set rules EA enters in wrong positions (it opens one candle after the rules become true) and trades where it is not supposed to . another problem is that it seems that after a while EA becomes inactive and does not enter into a trade and I need to drop the EA to the graph again.

it would be so nice if anyone could help me figure out the problem

here is the code

Those are constant. Assign them in OnTick.
