Hello,


Could someone please confirm or deny the following.

If I "OrderSend" succesfully a TRADE_ACTION_DEAL, and within the MqlTradeResult struct I retieve a deal_ticket = MqlTradeResult.deal, is this deal_ticket the same as the ticket of the position that was created as a result of the trade deal?

And can I retrieve the position via PositionSelectByTicket( deal_ticket )?

If yes, where is this documented?


Thank you for your help.

Best regards,

Chris
