Sorry to burden you guys, i've been trying to test a strategy for a while and i'm trying to test the code.

Sometimes it runs but when it tries to buy or sell it says "unsupported filling mode" other time it makes a strange noise and doesn't run at all....Maybe cos i'm running on a Mac? I'm with XM(who do you suggest btw-this is the only one i could find with cryptos(which i was able to find))!

Here's my code:-  

#include <Trade\Trade.mqh>
CTrade trade;

void OnTick()
  {

   double prices_b = SymbolInfoDouble(_Symbol, SYMBOL_BID);

   double prices_a = SymbolInfoDouble(_Symbol, SYMBOL_ASK); 

   Sleep(1000);
   double previous1tk_a = SymbolInfoDouble(_Symbol, SYMBOL_ASK); 
   double previous1tk_b = SymbolInfoDouble(_Symbol, SYMBOL_BID); 
   //Sleep(1000);
   //float previous2tk_a = SymbolInfoDouble(_Symbol, SYMBOL_ASK); 
   //float previous2tk_b = SymbolInfoDouble(_Symbol, SYMBOL_BID); 
   
   

   if(SymbolInfoDouble(_Symbol, SYMBOL_ASK)>previous1tk_a){
      int FillingMode=(int)SymbolInfoInteger(_Symbol,SYMBOL_FILLING_MODE);
      trade.Buy(0.01,NULL,SymbolInfoDouble(_Symbol, SYMBOL_ASK),0,(SymbolInfoDouble(_Symbol, SYMBOL_ASK)+100*_Point),NULL);
   }
   
   if(SymbolInfoDouble(_Symbol, SYMBOL_BID)> previous1tk_b){
      int FillingMode=(int)SymbolInfoInteger(_Symbol,SYMBOL_FILLING_MODE);
      trade.Sell(0.01,NULL,SymbolInfoDouble(_Symbol, SYMBOL_BID),0,(SymbolInfoDouble(_Symbol, SYMBOL_BID)+100*_Point),NULL);
   }  
  }

This is my first post, sorry if i dont follow all the formalitiesss.

Good, now you can try your first research.

I'm still researching still no luck with my error...

For a simple CTrade this error shouldn't come up..

So i'm stumped.

I've tried making a copy the trade file and modifying it so that it has 'ORDER_FILLING_IOC' instead but it didnt seem to work.(thats what seemed to have worked for XM previously-from other posts)

If you can help i'll be glad thanks

CTrade is problematic with Crypto.

Have you tried using conventional way's ?

Example of the TRADE_ACTION_DEAL trade operation for opening a Buy position:

#define EXPERT_MAGIC 123456   // MagicNumber of the expert
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
//| Opening Buy position                                             |
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+
void OnStart()
  {
//--- declare and initialize the trade request and result of trade request
   MqlTradeRequest request={0};
   MqlTradeResult  result={0};
//--- parameters of request
   request.action   =TRADE_ACTION_DEAL;                     // type of trade operation
   request.symbol   =Symbol();                              // symbol
   request.volume   =0.1;                                   // volume of 0.1 lot
   request.type     =ORDER_TYPE_BUY;                        // order type
   request.price    =SymbolInfoDouble(Symbol(),SYMBOL_ASK); // price for opening
   request.deviation=5;                                     // allowed deviation from the price
   request.magic    =EXPERT_MAGIC;                          // MagicNumber of the order
//--- send the request
   if(!OrderSend(request,result))
      PrintFormat("OrderSend error %d",GetLastError());     // if unable to send the request, output the error code
//--- information about the operation
   PrintFormat("retcode=%u  deal=%I64u  order=%I64u",result.retcode,result.deal,result.order);
  }
//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

 
Example of the TRADE_ACTION_DEAL trade operation for opening a Sell position:

#define EXPERT_MAGIC 123456   // MagicNumber of the expert

//+------------------------------------------------------------------+

   request.volume   =0.2;                                   // volume of 0.2 lot
   request.type     =ORDER_TYPE_SELL;                       // order type
   request.price    =SymbolInfoDouble(Symbol(),SYMBOL_BID); // price for opening
   request.deviation=5;                                     // allowed deviation from the price

Marco vd Heijden:

CTrade is problematic with Crypto.

Have you tried using conventional way's ?

I have sir, and i am so close to making a functioning EA... I will post code below. So do you suggest using the traditional methods to initialize trades for crypto?


Thanks for getting back so soon all!


Hopefully i can solve this problem.


The problem i get with the trad. way is that it says this ---

"'return' - 'void' function returns a value"

---- solved the error now!!!!

Sorry! Thanks!

I've searched up multiples posts regarding this and to no avail


Thanks beforehand!!!!

It's because the two times you want to ordersend it returns the outcome while the ontick() is a void function.

so you could get rid of that:

But it's a lot easier if you create a few stand alone functions that you can just drop in whenever you need them like this:

There are still some problems but it's a start.

Everything compiles alright but i noticed that every time i run the strategy tester it just makes a noise and doesnt do anything any idea why this might be? 


Thanks a lot btw!

It should print something to the log because:

   if(!OrderSend(request,result))
      PrintFormat("OrderSend error %d",GetLastError());     // if unable to send the request, output the error code

So you look for the error code and once you found that look it up here:
