Hi Guys   I have an EA running but it is evaluating entry conditions every tick, and I simply want it to check only once per minute, preferably at the close of a 1 minute bar. On reading through the guides I guess this can be done by using OnTimer in place of OnTick, but I'm a little stuck now. Can...

Hello, whenever we open an order in metatrader it then is written to the log file. Whatever we do to that order it´ll be written in the log.
