THANK YOU. 

Hello,

Just a question : why do you do ordersend then ordermodify ?

int  OrderSend( 
   string   symbol,              // symbol 
   int      cmd,                 // operation 
   double   volume,              // volume 
   double   price,               // price 
   int      slippage,            // slippage 
   double   stoploss,            // stop loss 
   double   takeprofit,          // take profit 
   string   comment=NULL,        // comment 
   int      magic=0,             // magic number 
   datetime expiration=0,        // pending order expiration 
   color    arrow_color=clrNONE  // color 
   );

There is a particular reason ?


You have an example on MQL4 help :

//--- get minimum stop level 
   double minstoplevel=MarketInfo(Symbol(),MODE_STOPLEVEL); 
   Print("Minimum Stop Level=",minstoplevel," points"); 
   double price=Ask; 
//--- calculated SL and TP prices must be normalized 
   double stoploss=NormalizeDouble(Bid-minstoplevel*Point,Digits); 
   double takeprofit=NormalizeDouble(Bid+minstoplevel*Point,Digits); 
//--- place market order to buy 1 lot 
   int ticket=OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_BUY,1,price,3,stoploss,takeprofit,"My order",16384,0,clrGreen); 
   if(ticket<0) 
     { 
      Print("OrderSend failed with error #",GetLastError()); 
     } 
   else 
      Print("OrderSend placed successfully");

I think (if i've not mistaken you) you have to add OrderClose function when the condition met.

Hi, I think you answered my question :)

 so I replace this code (code below) with OrderClose ? can you give me an example just to fully get it 


ticket= OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_BUY,lotSize,Ask,3,0,0,NULL,0,0,Green);
      if(OrderSelect(ticket, SELECT_BY_TICKET, MODE_TRADES))
         rst=OrderModify(ticket,OrderOpenPrice(),OrderOpenPrice()-(stopLose*Point),OrderOpenPrice()+(takeProfit*Point),0,CLR_NONE);

Hello,


This code can't work, because you check OrdersTotal == 0 then you can't close an order if they are not open...

maybe like this :

if(fastMaV2<slowMaV2&& fastMaV1>slowMaV1&& OrdersTotal()==0  )

     {
        //openorder
     }

if(fastMaV2<slowMaV2&& fastMaV1>slowMaV1&& OrdersTotal()>0  ) //replace fastMaV2<slowMaV2&& fastMaV1>slowMaV1 by your conditions to close order

     {
        //closeorder
     }

Hi again why it open the trade but never close it ?

if(fastMaV2<slowMaV2&& fastMaV1>slowMaV1&& OrdersTotal()==0  )

     {
        buyticket= OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_BUY,lotSize,Ask,3,0,0,NULL,0,0,Green); // assuming I identify the variable buyticket and closeticket 
     }

if(fastMaV2<slowMaV2&& fastMaV1>slowMaV1&& OrdersTotal()>0  ) 
     {
        closeticket=OrderClose(OrderTicket(),OrderLots(),Ask,3,Red);
     }
