Unknown retcode 10044

Hi everyone

Im using risk calculator on a prop account that give me the error "Unknown retcode 10044" when I try and place a trade. I have used the same calculator on my demo account with the same broker. I have contacted support from all involved and no one seems to know anything. I have reinstalled the calculator. Hopefully someone can shed some light. Thanks

Open with F1 in the Editor the MT5 doc, enter in the search field 10044, press enter, then scroll down to 10044 and read:

10044

TRADE_RETCODE_CLOSE_ONLY

The request is rejected, because the "Only position closing is allowed" rule is set for the symbol

Ok thanks for that. Its not the same message on the error as what im getting however it is the same code. What would you recommend to fix this?

Can you read? What means: "Only position closing is allowed"?

Talk to your broker.
