Ea that will open a buy order with one pair, and a sell order for another pair at the same time

 

Dear all,

I'm trying to developing ea that will open a buy order with one pair, and a sell order for another pair at the same time?

For example: I am overlaying two charts  EUR/USD and USD/CHF

When I visually see an entry point, I want to have the ea instantly open apposing orders at the lot size I specify: BUY 1.0 lot on the currency pair EUR/USD and a SELL 2.2 lot on currency pair USD/CHF.

(I need to be able to choose which one is long, and which one is short)

I found a piece of code but it's from mt4.

Can anyone help me convert it to mt5?

Please give me a help

Thank you very much

29 errors when you compile in MQL5, mainly around MarketInfo and OrderSend- its some effort to go through each one, but not that hard really to look up the MQL5 equivalents and change the statements.

Are you a programmer?
