so I got this ea online, but when I apply it to a demo account it does not open any trades. it does however open trades in the strategy tester. I have even looked at the code but cannot figure out why. it works it the backtest but not in live or demo, i wanted to have it hedge the trade so to speak in my live account like if i think the eur is going to go up, lets say i have a buy order every time it touches the open price hedge it each time with 1 pip sl. so in case it goes down i dont lose much or any.
If EA works in backtesting so it should work for trading (in most of the cases).
You can ask anyone to look at it for possible fixing for 600+ builds for example, or go to Freelance.
do you think it was not compiled correctly? i was able to have it open trades in the backtest. i manually send an order in the demo account and it does not open a pending order? I cannot figure out why. I do really want this fixed, would it cost a lot for someone to look at the code and figure out why it does not open trades in a demo account? the backtest it works fine

If your EA is backtested but it does not trade so it may be because of the following reasons:
Theoretically speaking - it can be because of anything (any above mentioned "reason").
So, try to find the reason by yourself, or go to Freelance to find the coders to fix it (I am not a coder sorry).

For example, your EA is openning the trades during backtesting - because of the following EA (this code is inside your EA) -
extern string sbhi="send one long and one short trade when backtester starts? -> Works on backtester only!";
extern bool SendTestTradesOnBacktest = true;//should send one long and one short trade when backtester starts
extern bool SendLongTradesOnBacktest = false;
extern bool SendShortTradesOnBacktest = true;
double TestOrderSLpips = 10.0;
double TestOrderTPpips = 500.0;
Try to change SendTestTradesOnBacktest to false, and SendShortTradesOnBacktest to false - to get the real situation during the backtesting.
It may be some other particularities ...

If someone (any coder) will help you here on the thread so - not.In Freelance - yes, you should pay.
