both provide more or less the same functionality but what is better to use while coding the EA?
Trade function - i like to know how my code's working. But when i use standart library - i'm not sure that it was written in best way.
these are the trade functions according to mql5 documentation;
to me they look quite clumsy - I would recommend to use them only in the beginning stage - later on its better to implement own classes or objects based on CTrade.
