Why doesnt my above code execute trades at the moving average value? They always trade several pips above or below....seems quite random. According to the above code, if the Ask price falls 3 pips below the 5 day MA, i want to trigger a buy. But as i said before, the bys get triggered randomly, sometimes as much as 50 pips away..

bondstrader: Why doesnt my above code
  1. There are no mind readers here. Add Print statements with variable values and find out why.
  2. Check your return codes (OrderSend and OrderModify) What are Function return values ? How do I use them ? - MQL4 forum and Common Errors in MQL4 Programs and How to Avoid Them - MQL4 Articles
