I'm new to programming with MT4 and was wondering how I could cancel a pending order if its not filled by the end of a candle? I'm on an ECN broker so it can't be placed in the OrderSend function. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
For each currency pair I use a separate EA. To verify if an position should be opened, I test if there is no open order "if (OrdersTotal<1)" but this will block all other currency pairs to open positions and I miss opportunities. In other words: I want to open only one position per currency pair =...

I know alerts are a popular question and I have read how to do an alert and faithfully followed an example that seemed a good fit for what I seek to do with an indicator I am working on. I have lines that "cross" and assign a value 1 to a "Long" cross and -1 for a "Short" cross.  My alert correctly...

I am looking for a way to close ALL open orders rather than just the current code I have which closes just 1 order: void IfOrderExists86(){    bool exists = false;    for (int i=OrdersTotal()-1; i >= 0; i--)    if (OrderSelect(i, SELECT_BY_POS, MODE_TRADES))    {        if (OrderType() == OP_SELL...
Hey guys, to be honest, i'm really disappointed of the latest MT4 software. I just can't belive that the mega bug with the trendline ( moving from timeframe to timeframe ) which had been discussed several times on almost every forum i know, is still there. I just don't get it. It's such a pain to...

Hi Coders, assuming I get hold of an object which happepns to be of type trendline and I want to iterte through its price values; as trendlines usually do, this one also leaves the screen area at some back time point. Naturally what comes to mind is - before I start the price values iteration I...
1)  I noticed that some automated trades are not initiated.  Is there a way to code the EA to try the trade again or do a market order getting the best possible price? 2)  Is there a way to code the EA to set a variable to the close of a certain time of day? Thanks!
HI All I have a major problem with charts freezing as I switch from one pair to another in the same profile. The new chart window opens and the old chart starts to build a minimized window but freezes and all other processes stop. I can open a second chart fine but when I go to switch  to...
I have to recognize , in this case, a long trade has been opened when a pending OP_BUYSTOP has been hit. It returns it to a variable nlongs.  If nlongs is >0 and the price has moved x pips, the stop loss is moved to break even. int GetLongsNumber(){   int n = 0;   for(int x = 0; x < OrdersTotal();...

Seeking help; Live MT4 account stated in notional unit size (ie, instead of 1 lot, trades stated as 100K). However, when programming in strategy to backtest,  MT4 states "Lot Size." Thus, when backtesting, if I put in 1.0 in "Lot Size" (for 100K units) it is being read as 1.0 units instead of 100K...
Hi. I need help modifying an EA that I paid to have coded. It is a basic fractal breakout EA with trailing stop and breakeven, TP and SL. I want to modify it such that, once a fractal is used as a signal to open a trade, another trade will not be opened based on the same fractal. This is to prevent...
Hi guys, I'm just wondering if there's a way to do something like a fill-or-kill with two pending orders - so that if one couldn't be filled, the other wouldn't either? I suspect not. In that case, is there a way to bias the likelihood of two pending orders being filled in my favour? There is a buy...
I'm working on a new EA, and have created a flow chart to visually show how it will work, and it hit me.....what happens if for whatever reason, there is a communications failure between the client (my pc) and the server while the EA is running and there are existing orders already placed?  Here's...
Hello forum, I am not quite sure of the right wording for this question. I have made an indicator that draws arrows on my chart during the current (0) bar for certain conditions.
