Please consider to insert StopLevel value into modify script because Alpari has StopLevel = 0;

This TP/SL not executed has beed asked s lot in the forum.

Since MT5 is position based trading platform (MT4 is ticket based trading platform), you may want to use pending orders with the same amount of lot with opened position as TP and SL.

If you have 1.34 lots of buy position, use 1.34 lots of sell limit as TP and 1.34 lots sell stop as SL, and if you have 1.34 lots of sell position, use 1.34 lots of buy limit as TP and 1.34 lots buy stop as SL.

Delete one of the pendings if your opened position is no longer exist.
