Just wondering if you can offer some insight. I've looked around for answer but have come up short.
I have a few different news trading EA's that straddle the current price with stop orders above and below it at a certain time before a news release. Works good, only problem is, once the stops are reached, actual orders are not opened. The EA's will put the stop orders, but once the price reaches (for example) the SellStop limit, the SellStop order is deleted and no sell order is created. It will leave the BuyStop order open, and if the price retraces up, it will close that one too.
Any ideas? If I manually put on a sellstop / buystop order, it fills just fine, but maybe it's an issue with it being in an EA, or having to opposite stop orders on at the same time? Any way to work around this? Thanks a lot,
Thanks for the response. I am using the News Trader Strategy found in the codebase on mql4.com. It is made by Forex Fellow and posted by Michael. I posted the code below. The EA opens the stop orders properly, but as I said they do not trigger an actual buy/sell signal. I do not get any error messages in the journal either. Any ideas? Oh and I am using a 5 digit broker, but I'm testing this EA with a MetaTrader4 demo account. Thanks for the help,
