Hi,

I am trying to code an EA for pending buy stop and sell stop orders.

buy stop : open[0]+0.0003

sell stop : open[0]-0.0003

This  EA is placing only buy stop orders and not placing any sell stop. Kindly suggest necessary modification.

Instead of this

  double BuyPrice=Open[0]+0.0003; 
  double SellPrice=Open[0]-0.0003;

Why not use

extern double Distance=0.3

int ticket1=OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_BUYSTOP,Lots,Ask+Distance*MyPoint,Slippage,0,0,"My Order",MagicNumber,0,Blue);

Ndumiso Mavuso:

After using this, it is not doing anything.

extern double Distance=0.3

int ticket1=OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_BUYSTOP,Lots,Ask+Distance*MyPoint,Slippage,0,0,"My Order",MagicNumber,0,Blue);

Seems to me that, after executing the buy order,

the return instruction exits the loop.

So remove the "return (0) " in the buy section.

You probably need to check all the "return" s too!
