A simple EA with.
- Time filter
- Daily drawdown protection (by equity)
- Max. Drawdown protection (by equity)
Would be really cool, especially for prop firms.

By the way, is there a thread for prop firm traders, strategies and enthusiasts?

It seems to be the current rave and also the best support for traders these days.

Good afternoon guys - plz see the above gif file. This is a simple EA I'm working on that places a pending order when price gets back into the BBands. If possible, can some explain to me what I am doing wrong. I want the pending trade placed without the SL and TP. Only when the trade becomes active do I want the trade to be modified and the stops added. mrtools or anyone else can you plz point me in the right direction....thanks very much in advance.

Here is the code for the pending function

Code: Select all

void TradeStart(int orderType){

   double candleHigh1 = iHigh(Symbol(), Period(), 1);
   double candleLow1 = iLow(Symbol(), Period(), 1);
   datetime candleExperation = iTime(Symbol(), Period(), 0)+PeriodSeconds() - 1;

   int i = 0;
   //---determine if we are buying or selling 
   double price = candleLow1 - 3*pips;
   double sl = 0, tp = 0;
   if(orderType == OP_BUYSTOP) price = candleHigh1 + 3*pips;
   
   int err = 0;
   int  TicketNumber = OrderSend(Symbol(),orderType,LotSize,price,Slippage,0,0," ",
                       MagicNumber,0,clrGreen);
   if(TicketNumber == -1)
   {
      err = GetLastError();
      Print("Could not place the order due to error ",err," ",ErrorDescription(err));
      if(err == ERR_TRADE_NOT_ALLOWED)Alert("YOU NEED TO ENABLE YOUR AUTOTRADING BUTTON!");
   }
   else//If we are able to select an order
   {   
      if(!OrderSelect(TicketNumber,SELECT_BY_TICKET))
      {
      err = GetLastError();
      Print("Could not select the order due to error ",err," ",ErrorDescription(err));
      }
      else//If we are able to select an order
      {
         double priceOpen = OrderOpenPrice();
         sl = priceOpen + (Stoploss*pips);
         tp = priceOpen - (Takeprofit*pips);
         if(OrderType() == OP_BUYSTOP){
            sl = priceOpen - (Stoploss*pips);
            tp = priceOpen + (Takeprofit*pips);   
         }
         if(!OrderModify(TicketNumber, price, sl, tp, 0, clrGreen))
         {
            err = GetLastError();
            Print("Could not modify the order due to error ",err," ",ErrorDescription(err));
         }         
      }
   }         
}

Always glad for you help mrtools. I'm still at it. I got the trade to be taken without the stop, however
when I use orderselect to try to modify it and add the SL and TP nothing happen.

The trade opens as normal in the strategy tester however in the journal the type says "sell" not "stopSell" anymore.

So I not sure if it a different order or for that matter calling the right order.
Thanks thought - I'll keep at it till something clicks..lol
