I am busy developing an EA. I have gotten the EA working correctly on focusing on one magic number.
what do I need to add so the EA focuses on 2 magic numbers, but focuses on them separately?

Example 

EA take profit = $5.0

magic number 1 = $2.5
magic number 2 = $5.0

EA closes magic number 2

EA does not close magic number 1 until Take profit has been reached of $5.0

Here is the coding I have for magic number 1
How do I add magic number 2?

double Profit(){
double Prof=0;
for (int i=0; i<OrdersTotal(); i++) {
if (OrderSelect(i, SELECT_BY_POS, MODE_TRADES)) {
if( OrderMagicNumber()== magic_number1 ){

I ran into a small problem. now the EA closed magic number 2 but not magic number 1.
How do I fix this issue?
Sorry. I am new to the mql4 coding and still learning a lot.


double Profit(){
double Prof=0;
for (int i=0; i<OrdersTotal(); i++) {
if (OrderSelect(i, SELECT_BY_POS, MODE_TRADES)) {
if( OrderMagicNumber()== magic_number ){
}
else if( OrderMagicNumber()== magic_number2 )
{

Prof = Prof + OrderProfit()+ OrderCommission() + OrderSwap();
}
} 
}
return(Prof);
}

void CloseOrder(void)
{
int total = OrdersTotal();
for(int i=total-1;i>=0;i--){
OrderSelect(i, SELECT_BY_POS);
int type = OrderType();
bool result = false;
if(OrderMagicNumber()==magic_number){

else if( OrderMagicNumber()== magic_number2 ){

switch(type){ 
case OP_BUY : result = OrderClose(OrderTicket(),OrderLots(),MarketInfo(OrderSymbol(),MODE_BID),5,Red);
break;
case OP_SELL : result = OrderClose(OrderTicket(),OrderLots(),MarketInfo(OrderSymbol(),MODE_ASK),5, Blue);
} //switch
if(result == false){
Print("Order ", OrderTicket(), " failed to close. Error:", GetLastError() );
}
}
}
}

To close both:

if(OrderMagicNumber()==magic_number || OrderMagicNumber()== magic_number2 )
{
    // Close code here
}

I think you would gain quite a bit by reading this tutorial:
