Hello 

I need to know if an order is stopped by a stoploss or take profit. by the server.

I think it is possible in the event OnTradeTransaction () but I can not find the right syntax and magic ticket  and order ticket = 0? 

Does anyone has an example or a tutorial ? 

thank you for your help

An Order cannot be closed by a StopLoss,  infact an Order cannot be closed . . . it can be deleted.  A Position can be closed by a StopLoss . . .  this thread may help:  https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/11996

Creating a robust trading robot cannot be done without an understanding of the mechanisms of the MetaTrader 5 trading system. The client terminal receives the information about the positions, orders, and deals from the trading server. To handle this data properly using the MQL5, it's necessary to have a good understanding of the interaction between the MQL5-program and the client terminal.

Hello,

As RaptorUK already said you, with MT5 only a position can be closed by SL. I suggest you to read again the article which Figurelli gives you the link.

If you need help with your code you have to post code that compiles and has a meaning, what's the meaning of the code you posted ?

There are mainly 2 ways to detect that a position was closed by SL :

  • If you had an open position and it is now closed, check the history of deals to find the closing price of your position. This is the standard approach.
  • Use OnTradeTransaction to detect changes in your position "on the fly". But it's an advanced technique.

the code goes in the OnTradeTransaction event, but in cannot find the wished information (id of order ...etc)
