 I am new to coding but I am learning about it. 

I have been trying to set my stoploss to 3 different condition as follow ( Open_Buy Case):

1. My Stoploss = 50 pips if the previous close is not greater than 50 pips compare to previous bar open .

2. My Stoploss = previous bar open if the different between previous close and open is greater than 50pips and smaller than 150pips.

3. My Stoploss = 150 pips if the different between previous bar close and open is greater than 150 pips.

 I have put the stoploss part only to ask for help.

 I have tried for a week but i cant get it write.

here some code I have tried.

 Please give me some advice.

Sokphal: I have been trying to set my stoploss to 3 different condition as follow ...
  1. You have? Where is your code that looks at the previous candle and sets the SL.
  2. learn to code it, or pay someone. We're not going to code it FOR you.
    We are willing to HELP you when you post your attempt (using SRC) and the nature of your problem.

 I just want to know what function, operator, or any related needed codes for this kind of stop loss condition.

you just give me some advice on those thing. I don't need you to write it for me.

You will need most of the functions from this section of the documentation: "Trade Functions" 

Read that. Most of the functions come with sample code. 

Also, read the book: "Mql4 Book"

Sokphal:

1. My Stoploss = 50 pips if the previous close is not greater than 50 pips compare to previous bar open .

2. My Stoploss = previous bar open if the different between previous close and open is greater than 50pips and smaller than 150pips.

3. My Stoploss = 150 pips if the different between previous bar close and open is greater than 150 pips.

  1. Multiplication (pips to points and points to a change in price.) Addition change to a price.
  2. Conditional Operator if-else - Operators - Language Basics - MQL4 Reference
  3. Timeseries and Indicators Access - MQL4 Reference
