MQLTA Close at Target Line

The Close at Target Line (CATL) EA will help you managing your orders showing you the desired profit/loss target, notifying you when the price is reached and closing the orders automatically.

How does it work?

In the CATL options you can specify a profit or loss expressed in your account currency, once done the indicator will scan your open orders in the chart pair, apply filtering if needed, and calculate the target price to achieve that profit or loss. You can then be notified when the price is reached and choose if the positions will be closed automatically.

How to Use the EA

Select the initial options when loading the EA, filtering options, colors and positions, notification options. Enable the notification first so you can check the settings are correct. Enable the Auto Close. When the condition is verified then you will be notified and orders closed (depending on the settings).

Why you should use the TLI Indicator?

The Close at Target Line EA is a very useful tool because:

  • Will calculate for you the price level to reach
  • Will show you graphically the target
  • It is ideal in case of multiple orders/hedging strategies
  • Will send you notifications and alert
  • Will close automatically the orders at your desired level

How to Test and Backtest

Since the EA works on open orders this cannot be tested.


The CATL can be configured to send you notifications:

  • Via Email
  • Via App
  • Via MetaTrader Alert


Due to some rounding of double numbers and approximations the target price may not be exact to the cent however the formula applied is designed to be as close as possible to the desired profit/loss.
