There are several reasons why an order was closed:

        Unknown = -1,

        Expiration = 0,

        Market = 1,

        TakeProfit = 2,

        StopLoss = 3,

        Risk = 4


In MQL 4, how does one determine why an order was closed?

How does one determine if an order was closed by Market, Stoploss or TakeProfit?

If your order was closed by StopLoss or TakeProfit the order comment will be updated by your broker to start with "sl:..." or "tp:...". If your order was closed because your minimum margin level was reached (margin call) the order comment will be updated by your broker to start with "so:..." which means "stop-out". If the order comment of a closed order is unchanged or empty the order was closed manually, most probably by yourself. So you have to check OrderComment().
