Hi Guys,

I have an EA that on certain conditions, it should reverse the current position. This level, of course, is the same SL for the position.

 

I am doing the following.

Modifying position to set new SL (working ok according to the backtest journal)

Placing new Buy/Sell Stop with price at the same level than position SL (also working according to journal)

When price reachs that level, sometimes it works to reverse position but most of then, MT5 seems to understand that my buy Stop Order simply closes the position and doesn't trigger the Position SL.

 

Have anyone ever seen this problem?

 

I wouldn't like to simply delete the position SL and place a double order since if the SL level is not triggered and prices continues to the original trade direction, this reversal order this order is deleted. 

 

Rgds
