# Closing orders first max value, second min value

Hello,

I am trying to write a code which closes orders by rule. However, I could not get a success.

The need is close order,
first close-> max value, second close--> min value,
than we have new reduced orders list and the same rule for remaining list:
first close-> max value, second close--> min value,
than again, again and again...

The aim to obtain real max relative drawdown.

For example:

I assume that I have opened 5 orders as following;
first is 100 usd, second is 80 usd, third is -200 usd, fourth is -50 usd, and fifth is -10 usd

The need is to close following orders respectively: 100 usd, -200 usd, 80 usd, -50 usd, and -10 usd.

By this way, I want to achive a real max relative drawdown for trader who opens nt only one order at the same time.

Best, Murat Y.

Show your attempt at coding it. We can only help guide you, not to code it for you.

Thank you, Antonio Simon! A very great code...
For the aim, it works to get real max relative drawdown.
I will use it. Best.

You have posted your topic  in the MQL4 and MT4 section.

Yet you seem to think that MQL5 code is useful to you!

Please confirm whether your code is MQL4 or MQL5. If you have posted in the wrong section, I will move your topic.

Right topic! I just understood the idea.

string Recorrido = "Even";

Void OnTick()

{

for(int i = OrdersTotal() - 1; i >= 0; i--) _trade.ClosePositions();

}

{

double MaxActual = 0;

double MinActual = 0;

ulong Ticket = 0;

int slippage=0;

for(int i = OrdersTotal() - 1; i >= 0; i--)

{

//In even we look for the maxima and in odd we look for the minima

if(Recorrido == "Even" && OrderProfit()> MaxActual )

{

MaxActual = OrderProfit();

Ticket = OrderTicket();

}

else

{

if(Recorrido == "Odd" && OrderProfit()< MinActual )

{

MinActual = OrderProfit();

Ticket = OrderTicket();

}

}

}

OrderClose(Ticket,OrderLots(),OrderClosePrice(),slippage,clrAliceBlue);

if(Recorrido == "Even") Recorrido = "Odd";

else Recorrido = "Even";

}

Excuse me, where do I see that it is for MT4? I do not see anywhere that they tell me that it is for MT4.
