I have tried for a bit to get this thing to issue buy and sell orders but no luck. Its probably something simple and I'm just over looking it. I'm somewhat new to MT5 and any input would be appreciated
As far as I understand - this version of the EA works with non-ECN/non-STP brokers/accounts, means: the trade will be open togerther with stop loss/take profit (in case of ECN/STP account: sl/tp should be filled as a next step by modifying already existing trade):
Note that the TradeAlgorithms.mqh library file allows using Expert Advisors with brokers who offer nonzero spread and the option of setting Stop Loss and Take Profit together with position opening. You can download more variants of the library at the following link: Trade Algorithms.
