Hi Guys

Can anyone tell me how to have a buy and sell position open at the same time. Currently one closes the other.

Thanks in advance

if you live in USA you can't hedging, its because NFA( or brokerage that follow NFA only) doesn't allowed, but usually some people will open sub account so you can open two position at the same time.

Nope, there's no way. MT5 is position based trade platform while MT4 is ticket based trade platform. It means, in MT5 there will be only one position and opening opposite position with same lot will close that position.

Please read this : buy and sel another cancel each other and Order, Position and Deals in MetaTrader 5

This class library can be added to an MetaTrader 5 Expert Advisor to enable it to be written with an order-centric approach broadly similar to MetaTrader 4, in comparison to the position-based approach of MetaTrader 5. It does this by keeping track of virtual orders at the MetaTrader 5 client terminal, while maintaining a protective broker stop for each position for disaster protection.
