Hello forum, good day.

I'm new to MQL5 programming language, I come from a Web Development context and would like to start trading with MetaTrader 5. I started reading Step-By-Step Guide to writing and Expert Advisor in MQL5 for Beginners, the MQL5 Docs and a book (Expert Advisor Programming for Metatrader 5) just a few days ago. I've learned that in order to place a Buy Order, +DI must be greater than -DI and have to look for black candles, and to place a Sell Order +DI must be lower than -DI and look for white candles.  

I was wondering how to find a black or white candle after this condition is met (+DI > -DI or +DI < -DI), and then place an order. Something else I would like to know is, once I find this specific candle, can I get the Open, High and Low price values from the previous candle? I think that this would be a Pending Order because I won't use the price of every tick, is this correct?

Regards and thank you in advance.

Hello codeMolecules,

take a look at the CopyRates function together with the timeframe PERIOD_D1.

Using the abovementioned function together with the correct timeframe, you can easily get the previous day OHLC parameters.
