  1. If this is MT4,
    1. Why did you post your MT4 question in the MT5 EA section instead of the MQL4 section, (bottom of the Root page)?

      Next time, post in the correct place. The moderators will likely move this thread there soon.

    2. You don't declare it, Bid is it a predefined variable.
    3. Don't hard code constants. Use the provided enumeration.

  2. If this is MT5
    1. Your call is wrong, read the documentation.
    2. Create them.

  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 at 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)

 
Thanks so much for all this information.

I will check and learn ;)
