# Normalizedouble

Below is a section of my code

```// count open positions

if(Close_by_Opposite){if(!ClosePositions(2)){return;}}
double sl = Stop_LOSS==0 ? 0 : currentTick.bid - Stop_LOSS * _Point;
double tp = TAKE_PROFIT==0 ? 0 : currentTick.bid + TAKE_PROFIT * _Point;
if(!NormalizePrice(sl)){return;}
if(!NormalizePrice(tp)){return;}

}

// check for sell positions
if (cntSell==0 && bufferRSI[1]<=RSI_Level && bufferRSI[0]>RSI_Level && currentTick.bid<bufferMA[0]){

if(Close_by_Opposite){if(!ClosePositions(1)){return;}}
double sl = Stop_LOSS==0 ? 0 : currentTick.ask + Stop_LOSS * _Point;
double tp = TAKE_PROFIT==0 ? 0 : currentTick.ask - TAKE_PROFIT * _Point;
if(!NormalizePrice(sl)){return;}
if(!NormalizePrice(tp)){return;}

}
```

I do understand that normalizedouble should go in the section sl & tp defined

```double sl = Stop_LOSS==0 ? 0 : currentTick.bid - Stop_LOSS * _Point;
double tp = TAKE_PROFIT==0 ? 0 : currentTick.bid + TAKE_PROFIT * _Point;```

But when I try to write it as the following

```double sl = Stop_LOSS==0 ? 0 :NormalizeDouble(( currentTick.bid - Stop_LOSS) * _Point),_Digits;
```

I am getting errors so I wanted to ask on the forum if someone could help me write it correctly, because I have tried searching on the forum and some of the other post by other professionals who have helped other people in the past are a little confusing to understand the post.

NormalizeDouble, It's use is usually wrong, as it is in your case.

1. Floating point has a infinite number of decimals, it's your not understanding floating point and that some numbers can't be represented exactly. (like 1/10.)
Double-precision floating-point format - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

2. Print out your values to the precision you want with DoubleToString - Conversion Functions - MQL4 Reference.

3. SL/TP (stops) need to be normalized to tick size (not Point) — code fails on non-currencies.

And abide by the limits Requirements and Limitations in Making Trades - Appendixes - MQL4 Tutorial and that requires understanding floating point equality Can price != price ? - MQL4 programming forum (2012)

4. Open price for pending orders need to be adjusted. On Currencies, Point == TickSize, so you will get the same answer, but it won't work on non-currencies. So do it right.

5. Lot size must also be adjusted to a multiple of LotStep and check against min and max. If that is not a power of 1/10 then NormalizeDouble is wrong. Do it right.

6. MathRound() and NormalizeDouble() are rounding in a different way. Make it explicit.

7. Prices you get from the terminal are already correct (normalized).

8. PIP, Point, or Tick are all different in general.

```double sl = Stop_LOSS==0 ? 0 :NormalizeDouble(( currentTick.bid - Stop_LOSS) * _Point),_Digits;
```double sl = Stop_LOSS==0 ? 0 : NormalizeDouble((currentTick.bid - Stop_LOSS * _Point), _Digits);
