Hi guys,

I'm completely new to MT4. I downloaded the "one click close all" EA and installed it but it doesn't seem to work. Any idea what may be the problem?

Any help/advice is appreciated. 

Thank you!

Sorry, I should have added that it installed correctly (I think...) and the button does show up on the chart. But when I click it, nothing happens.

If this tool is from this page https://www.mql5.com/en/code/22083 so let's install it:

I open MT4;

  • in menu: File - Open Data Folder;
  • find Scripts folder, and place close_All_Order.mq4 file to this folder;
  • restart MT4 or compile this file in MetaEditor.

And let's check about how it works - 

I see this script in Metatrader, I have open trade and I want to close it using this script:


-----------

So, I applied this script to the chart, and the trade was closed.
I had one trade. If I have many trades on same symbol/chart so this script wil close all of them by one click.

Hello. Why does the close order script not work in MetaTrader?
