Ctrade - trade.sell

Coolze36  

Good day all, 

I am seeking to create trade deal task but instead of opening 1 single deal it opens many of them at the same time? Can anyone provide a suggestion? Not sure what I am missing here. Thank you 


#include<Trade\Trade.mqh>

CTrade trade;

MqlTradeRequest;

MqlTradeResult;

void OnTick()

{

double Ask=NormalizeDouble(SymbolInfoDouble(_Symbol,SYMBOL_ASK),_Digits);

double Bid=NormalizeDouble(SymbolInfoDouble(_Symbol,SYMBOL_BID),_Digits);

double Balance=AccountInfoDouble(ACCOUNT_BALANCE);

double Equity=AccountInfoDouble(ACCOUNT_EQUITY);

if (Equity>= Balance)

trade.Sell(0.01,_Symbol,Ask,(Ask+75 * _Point),(Bid-125 * _Point),NULL);

}

Hi Coolze36, you entry is at:

1. an OnTick() event which is triggered on every tick ( I suggest you write a separate function then call it through onTick() 

2. Your if statement condition is mostly always true then when true on every tick there will a trade. (so if you need one trade at a time add PositionsTotal() on your if statement) like..

if (Equity>= Balance && PositionsTotal()==0)

trade.Sell(0.01,_Symbol,Ask,(Ask+75 * _Point),(Bid-125 * _Point),NULL);

}

Then your trade will enter once then another just after the other closes.

NB: I think you need a better strategy to enter trade than relying on the balance and account Equity.

Hope the above helps.

}

Try to add this :

  if(entry=="sell" && PositionsTotal()< n)

      trade.Sell(0.05,NULL,Bid,0,(Bid-100 * _Point),NULL);

Fill n with number of deal as you want (1,2.3,....)....

You buy at the Ask and sell at the Bid. Pending Buy Stop orders become market orders when hit by the Ask.

  1. Your buy order's TP/SL (or Sell Stop's/Sell Limit's entry) are triggered when the Bid / OrderClosePrice reaches it. Using Ask±n, makes your SL shorter and your TP longer, by the spread. Don't you want the specified amount used in either direction?

  2. Your sell order's TP/SL (or Buy Stop's/Buy Limit's entry) will be triggered when the Ask / OrderClosePrice reaches it. To trigger close to a specific Bid price, add the average spread.

  3. The charts show Bid prices only. Turn on the Ask line to see how big the spread is (Tools → Options (control+O) → charts → Show ask line.)

    Most brokers with variable spreads widen considerably at end of day (5 PM ET) ± 30 minutes.
    My GBPJPY shows average spread = 26 points, average maximum spread = 134.
    My EURCHF shows average spread = 18 points, average maximum spread = 106.
    (your broker will be similar).
              Is it reasonable to have such a huge spreads (20 pip spreads) in EURCHF? - General - MQL5 programming forum (2022)
