i tried looking through the forums but couldn’t find the answer to the question i have.

 

At the top of my RULES i always put “Is bar open is true” and then list out my rules.

 

Then i either enter at market or limit order.. 

 

So if i enter at market order when bar open is true and on that same bar it reaches my profit target and exits out trade with profit.. How do i then tell it that if during that same bar the price goes back to what my entry price was on the same bar just a couple seconds ago that it exited with profit to THEN enter back into position at that same price in the same direction it just was??

 

But once the bar is over and moves to next bar then i don’t want it taking the trade..

 

I only want it to take the 2nd trade if it reaches back to my entry price after the 1st entry price was a success.

 

R.B.

When you enter a position using market order you can set a variable waitForLimit = 1 and save your profit-target price.

EA then waits if market reaches that price and market position is NOT flat until bar closes and places limit order.

Add condition that “if isBarOpen = true AND waitForLimit = 1” you set to waitForLimit = 0 to avoid placing limit order after bar closes.

 

Beware that this requires precise backtesting to get meaningful results

 

Let me know if you need an example for this in WIzard

This could do the job. There are two functions: Last Order & Last Order Today … depends on which you prefer most

Good, that’s solved a Part of system, if i pur SL=0, and activate Reverse trading CloseSell/OpenBuy vs CLoseBuy openSell , after some trades, EA will stop making Reset/Set traded=0 or 1, and continue with one trade (short/long) can not be closed if TP not reached

 

 

The problem of : Last Order & Last Order Today that return us the current ACTIVE Trade , not the closed trades, Right ?

 

How to modify the following custom Function and extract Strategy Rules as : || or &&   To return rules if last closed position was SELL or BUY .

int sqGetLastOrderHist(int type = -1) 
{
  int ticket = -1;
  datetime dt = 0;
  int cnt = HistoryTotal();
    
  for (int i=0; i  dt) {
      dt = OrderCloseTime();
      ticket = OrderTicket();
    }

  return (ticket);
}

Last Order function returns what was the last order. As I made an example, EA waits for position equals flat and evaluates what was the last trade. The it trades the opposite.

Tried to edit your file. See attached Wizard project.

Basically I removed “Market Position is Flat” condition and replaced “Last Order Was” with my own variable.

Let me know if that helped
