Hi Guys,

 If my EA opened an order then I manually modified the order will my EA still check/update this order that I modified? My EA opened an order but it did not include a Stop Loss so I manually modified the order. Will my EA still do the other necessary adjustments (auto close the order once the EA parameters have been met etc)

Hi

It should do but it will really depend on your code. Most EAs look for an order on the current Symbol that have the correct magic number and assume it's theirs. So basically as long as you haven't corrupted the logic of the EA with your manual modification, you should be fine.

Thanks for the reply! I just verified that my EA updated the TP of the order i also modified manually
