Standard way to detect stop loss transaction executed on a position.

 

 I've read this post. But I am still not clear. 

 Here is my log when stop loss is executed in strategy tester.

Now I have a position.

It looks like OnTradeTransaction() is triggered 3 times. 

The MqlTradeTransaction is: TRADE_TRANSACTION_HISTORY_ADD 

The MqlTradeTransaction is: TRADE_TRANSACTION_ORDER_DELETE 

The MqlTradeTransaction is: TRADE_TRANSACTION_DEAL_ADD 

position is closed.  

There is no transaction type called "stop_loss_executed". The right way to detect stop loss transaction is to do what?

My idea is if a position is closed, then it can be result from a stop loss on a position, or user manually send an order. There is no way to tell the difference. Is this correct? 

If I am wrong, please tell me how to detect a stop loss event. 

Here is my log for that minute when stop loss event is triggered. 

Thanks!

You know your posittion (symbol, buy or sell), your volume, your sl price : EURUSD BUY 1.0 sl:1.27526

So if you detect a opposite deal, with the same volume and your sl price, it means stoploss has been triggered.

Got it. Thanks!
 
enum postype {BUY,SELL,NONE};
static int prevposition=NONE;

void  OnTradeTransaction( 
   const MqlTradeTransaction&    trans,        // estrutura das transações de negócios 
   const MqlTradeRequest&        request,      // estrutura solicitada 
   const MqlTradeResult&         results        // resultado da estrutura 
   )
{  
   HistorySelect(TimeCurrent()-3600,TimeCurrent());
   if(trans.type==TRADE_TRANSACTION_DEAL_ADD && trans.deal_type==DEAL_TYPE_SELL 
   && PositionsTotal()==0 && prevposition==BUY)
   {  
      if(HistoryDealGetInteger(trans.deal,DEAL_REASON)==DEAL_REASON_TP){
      Print("BUY + DEAL_REASON_TP");
      prevposition=NONE;}
      if(HistoryDealGetInteger(trans.deal,DEAL_REASON)==DEAL_REASON_SL){
      Print("BUY + DEAL_REASON_SL")
      prevposition=NONE;}
   }
   
   if(trans.type==TRADE_TRANSACTION_DEAL_ADD && trans.deal_type==DEAL_TYPE_BUY 
   && PositionsTotal()==0 && prevposition==SELL)
   {
      if(HistoryDealGetInteger(trans.deal,DEAL_REASON)==DEAL_REASON_TP){
      Print("SELL + DEAL_REASON_TP");
      prevposition=NONE;}
      if(HistoryDealGetInteger(trans.deal,DEAL_REASON)==DEAL_REASON_SL){
      Print("SELL + DEAL_REASON_SL");
      prevposition=NONE;}
   }
   
}
This code works for me!!! Note I assign BUY/SELL to prevposition when I send the order and get confirmation.

Isn't that a bit risky: "You know your position (symbol, buy or sell), your volume, your sl price : EURUSD BUY 1.0 sl:1.27526" ??

Why don't you use the Order-Ticket to identify the opposite deal? Is it changed or different compared to the original order?

For centuries we have learned to use the ticket number to identify the positions, open and closed?

 
Hi guys

Here My log file in backtest Mql5. I using the function OnTradeTransaction for check StopLoss events.

sometimes two or more stops occur at the same price and same time , but only one report is given in the function OnTradeTransaction. Can anyone help me?

sorry My code is very big and i can only report Log file.

Thanks!

  if(trans.symbol==Symbol())
   { 
   Print("\n--------- START OnTradeTransaction ---------");

Here is a technical forum and no one believes just words. You should show the OnTradeTransaction code - you probably made a mistake in handling events inside OnTradeTransaction.

What

HistorySelect(T1,TimeCurrent());

? Where did it come from?


Why are you doing it? All you need is to find ONE deal in the trading history. You don't need to copy the ENTIRE trading history! Moreover, you are copying a trading history with an error.

T1 is a global Parameter in top of expert when expert run it set to starttime then it update frome OnTradeTransaction in every Add Deal event

datetime starttime=TimeCurrent();
datetime T1=starttime;

Why I copying a trading history with an error? That function is recommended by Metaquotes

You are performing this function with an error. You are requesting trade history incorrectly. And most importantly - you do not need an action. You need to request ONE deal.
