int digits_adjust=(m_symbol.Digits()==3 || m_symbol.Digits()==5) ? 10 : 1;
Could you please help me understand why this adjustment is being done?
In the context of EURUSD, we've noticed that for MT5 (expert advisors) 1 point is 0.0001 (when setting take profits and stop losses).
But when we send manual orders, one point is 0.00001.

Hi nelsoneci, because you have 4 and 5 digits brokers. Also, points are points and pips are pips.
Maybe the topic below can help you too.

points == pips?

pips = 4 digit points in case of 4 digit broker, and 1 pip = 10 points in case of 5 digit broker ... some people say that we will have 6 digit brokers soon :) who knows ...
Many traders are using pips (4 digit points) irrespective of how many digits are having the broker at the price.
