Hello there,

My strategy consists in sending a stop buy order just at the 00.00 (GMT(0)) hourly candle 2 pips above the previous high, and another stop sell order 2 pips below the previous low. I want these two orders to be sent just once for each 24 hours, starting at 00:00 (GMT(0)). At first it seemed easy to code, but I haven't figured out how to do it yet. Here's the code I've written so far:

xtern double LotSize = 0.1;
extern int Start_Time = 1;
extern int Finish_Time = 2;
input int Magic = 0;//Magic Number
input int Slip = 3; //Slippage
input int StopRange=10; //Pips to place stop order
input int TP=20; //Pips target
input int SL=20; //Pips stoploss
input string TradeLog= ""; //Trade Comment
input bool alert_hp=false; //Send trade notification to smartphone
input bool alert_email=false; //Send trade notification to email 

int ticket, Dgt;
double position, target, stop;
double newlot;


double Pips()
    
    {
   
   // If there are 3 or less digits (JPY for example) then return 0.01 which is the pip value
   
     if(Digits<=3)
         {
          return(0.01);
         }
   //If there are 4 or more digits then return 0.0001 which is the pip value
      else if(Digits>=4)
         {
          return(0.0001);
          }
   //In all other cases (there shouldn't be any) return 0
     else return(0);
    }
    

int OnInit()
  {

   return(INIT_SUCCEEDED);
  
  }

void OnTick()
      
      {
       
       if (TotalOrderCount() == 0 && FoundRecentOpenedOrder(1440) == false) 
           
           {
             
             Hour1 = TimeHour(Time[1]);
             if(Hour1 == Start_Time) Entry();
            
            }
       else 
            {}
            
       }


      
int TotalOrderCount(){
    
    int count=0;
    for(int pos = OrdersTotal()-1; pos >= 0 ; pos--) if (
        OrderSelect(pos, SELECT_BY_POS)                 // Only my orders w/
    &&  OrderMagicNumber()  == Magic           // my magic number
    &&  OrderSymbol()       == Symbol() ){              // and my pair.
        count++;
    }
    return(count);
}

The Entry() sets the necessary conditions for the orders to be placed. Any help would be appreciated.


Thank you in advance
