Hi

Use the the CopyRates() function for the data of the last incomplete BAR or complete BARS.

https://www.mql5.com/en/docs/series/copyrates

https://www.mql5.com/en/docs/constants/structures/mqlrates


Use the SymbolInfoTick() function for the data of the most recent tick.

https://www.mql5.com/en/docs/marketinformation/symbolinfotick

https://www.mql5.com/en/docs/constants/structures/mqltick

// Info of the last incomplete BAR
//---------------------------------

// Rates Structure for the data of the Last (incomplete) BAR
   MqlRates BarData[1]; 
   CopyRates(Symbol(), Period(), 0, 1, BarData);

// Use the variable for your checks.   
   BarData[0].close
   BarData[0].real_volume
   BarData[0].time
   BarData[0].spread

// Info of the last tick.
//-----------------------

// The BID price.
   static double dBid_Price;   
   
// To be used for getting recent/latest price quotes
   MqlTick Latest_Price;      
   SymbolInfoTick(Symbol() ,Latest_Price);

   dBid_Price = Latest_Price.bid;  // Current Bid price.

Use this example:

// Info of the last incomplete BAR
//---------------------------------

// Rates Structure for the data of the Last (incomplete) BAR
   MqlRates BarData[1]; 
   CopyRates(Symbol(), Period(), 0, 1, BarData); // Copy the data of last (incomplete BAR)

// Date and Time variable.
//------------------------

   MqlDateTime TimePeriod; // MQL time structure. 
   TimeLocal(TimePeriod);  // Use current PC time for time variable.

   
   Alert("HIGH = ", BarData[0].high, " LOW = ", BarData[0].low, " Hour of the day: ", TimePeriod.hour);

// Or use the print() function.
   Print("HIGH = ", BarData[0].high, " LOW = ", BarData[0].low, " Hour of the day: ", TimePeriod.hour);

Again many  lot of thanks ,

but I print this code

   Alert("HIGH = ", BarData[0].high, " LOW = ", BarData[0].low, " Hour of the day: ", TimePeriod.hour, "  Date Time is : ",TimeToStr(BarData[0].time,TIME_DATE|TIME_SECONDS));

the output is : HIGH = 1.2589 LOW = 1.2557 Hour of the day: 6  Date Time is : 2012.06.14 09:00:00

below the current tick info .. it's not the same .. what is the problem ?

Hi

This piece of code is not correct:

"TimeToStr(BarData[0].time,TIME_DATE|TIME_SECONDS"


read these links:

https://www.mql5.com/en/docs/basis/types/integer/datetime

https://www.mql5.com/en/docs/dateandtime


For example, try:


// Shows the computer time:   
   Alert("HIGH = ", BarData[0].high, " LOW = ", BarData[0].low, " Hour of the day: ", TimePeriod.hour, " time: ", TimeLocal());

// Shows the broker server time:
   Alert("HIGH = ", BarData[0].high, " LOW = ", BarData[0].low, " Hour of the day: ", TimePeriod.hour, " time: ", TimeCurrent());

When I run this code in a custom indicator/file, I receive the correct prices and time.

You use it in a Expert Advisor code/file.

Run this code in a custom indicator. Try if it works.
