All of EA's that I have worked with open ie. long position and when condition changes close the open position and goes for short position right a way. There is always another condition that EA should close all the open positions and simply do NOTHING. Can you guide me how can I add this capability to my codes?

 
MQL4 Language for Newbies. Difficult Questions in Simple Phrases.
This is the second article from the series "MQL4 Language for Newbies". Now we will examine more complex and advanced constructions of the language, learn new options and see, how they can be applied in everyday practice. You will get acquainted with a new cycle type 'while', new condition type 'switch', operators 'break' and 'continue'. Besides you will learn to write your own functions and work with multidimensional arrays. And for a dessert I have prepared an explanation about a preprocessor.

Stop using stop & reverse logic. You can tell it to Buy when X=true/1 and Sell when X=false/-1. Personally, I like to use integers instead of Bool for my Trigger. You can also do things like set the Trigger to 0 when closing orders.
