# Can't count pending orders

Hello everyone, I have a simple problem with Buy-Limit order

I want just one order to put but while backtesting I see unlimited orders put every tick

and these are my codes

```if ( BuyLimit () < 1 )
if ( Buys     () < 1 )
{
trade.SetExpertMagicNumber(MagicNumber);
trade.BuyLimit( LotF       ,    Ask - .0005,   _Symbol    ,    Ask - .0065,   Bid        ,  0    );
}           ```

while :

```
int Buys()
{
int B=0,i;
for ( i=0; i<PositionsTotal();  i++){

if (  Symbol() == PositionGetSymbol(i)   && MagicNumber==PositionGetInteger(POSITION_MAGIC)  && PositionGetInteger(POSITION_TYPE) == POSITION_TYPE_BUY
)
{ B++;}
}
return(B);
}
///////////////////////////////
int BuyLimit()
{
int BL=0,i;
for ( i=0; i<OrdersTotal();  i++ )
{ OrderSelect(OrderGetTicket(i));
if ( Symbol()    == PositionGetSymbol(i) &&  MagicNumber == PositionGetInteger(POSITION_MAGIC)&&  (ENUM_ORDER_TYPE)OrderGetInteger(ORDER_TYPE) == ORDER_TYPE_BUY_LIMIT
)

{ BL++;}
}
return(BL);
}  ```

I hope if there are mistakes in my codes, I discover them

Thanks

Show your OnInit.

Show your OnInit.

Just This :

```int OnInit()
{
if (_Digits==4 || _Digits<=2) MyPoint=_Point;
if (_Digits==3 || _Digits==5) MyPoint=_Point*10;
return(INIT_SUCCEEDED);
}```

Just This :

You have to do it in OnInit ()

`   m_trade.SetExpertMagicNumber(InpMagic);`

I tried it but this error appeared after compile

"m_trade" -undeclared identifier

Everything is correct. I gave you my template. My object is named 'm_trade' - your object is named 'trade'.

My EA works after deleting

` Symbol()    == PositionGetSymbol(i) &&  MagicNumber == PositionGetInteger(POSITION_MAGIC)&& `

and

`OrderSelect(OrderGetTicket(i));`

So, There are problems with the definitions of Symbol and Magic Number

Yes, you have a problem - you are designing the EA incorrectly. You are not doing the required initialization.

You have to do this in OnInut:
