Hi friends,

I'm writing an expert advisor,

Can anyone help me what is the easiest way to prevent OnTick Function from placing orders repeatedly.

 I have some ideas in my mind but I think there would be easier ways to stop expert advisor from placing an order repeatedly in OnTick function and instead place only 1 order.

thanking in advance,

Check if you have an order open before opening.

Hi,

at live order checking needs to set true or false is there opened order or not, and if not the EA can open a new. I use this logic in my EAs.

for (counter1=OrdersTotal()-1; counter1>=0; counter1--) {
   if (OrderSelect(counter1,SELECT_BY_POS)==true) {
      if (OrderSymbol()==Symbol() && OrderMagicNumber()==magic_number) {
         ...
         ...
         ...
         liveorder=true;
      break;
      } else {
         liveorder=false;
       }
.
..
...
//and here comes the open trade session, we open a sell
if (liveorder==false) { 
    ......
    while(true) {
         last_order_ticket=OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_SELL,lots,Bid,20,Ask+order_sl,Ask-order_tp,"comment if you want",magic_number,0,clrWhite);
         Error_handling(GetLastError());
         if (last_order_ticket > 0) {
            break;
            }
      }

Wow , what a great answer !

I exactly use the same logic in my own code , the only difference is that I also change the Symbol string into integer with my own logic and use it in the magic number.

By the way, thank you very much for your kind guidance.
