how long it run? some ea have several filters to open order, and it takes time to meet all conditions true.

also check the setting, some ea have setting to be enabled.

Taking into consideration the above, be sure that your EA and broker lot match. Some brokers don't accept 2 digits for lot representation, so, 0.01 can't work on their accounts. Instead use 0.1 and see how things will go.

You could also try if the EA opens trades in the strategy tester (CTRL+R in MetaTrader). If not, there could be something wrong with your settings or even the EA code. Also the timeframe you use your bot matters. In a 5 Minute Chart there will be more frequent trades then in an Day Chart.
