Hi, I also have same issue on mt4, trades opened-closed and reopened seconds before news. But maybe because I had the EA on 2 diff chart, same pair, with same magic number? Also indeed SL is tight, but less than spread I believe. I am worried it triggered for me 10 trades before the news.

Also, can you explain a bit more how TrailingStop works? Does it trail as soon as profit? By which pip step? Thank you!

Edit : in logs I have many time messages (for each closure I guess) : "closing trade by timeout"
I also had the EA on several different charts, same pair, with same magic number, to automate/program the trades on different dates and times while I was at work. So that seems to be the problem.
Because now I have removed it from all the charts and it is on one chart now , and now it works fine again.
Thank you for highlighting this.
I have seen in the replies above: "If currency pairs are different, you don't need to set different Magic numbers. You only need Magic numbers if you are trading on the same currency pair."
So I will test it with different Magic numbers, different charts, same pair. Maybe then I can plan trades for the whole week.
Thanks for all the help.

Which broker and account type is that? I need to test it.

Also, what is the output in the Experts tab?

It looks like you had the concurrently running two instances of NewsTraders for the same currency pair and the same Magic number. In this case, one that had its trades already timed out would also attempt to close any new trades opened by any other instance with the same symbol/magic combination.

I also had the EA on several different charts, same pair, with same magic number, to automate/program the trades on different dates and times while I was at work. So that seems to be the problem.
Because now I have removed it from all the charts and it is on one chart now , and now it works fine again.
Thank you for highlighting this.
I have seen in the replies above: "If currency pairs are different, you don't need to set different Magic numbers. You only need Magic numbers if you are trading on the same currency pair."
So I will test it with different Magic numbers, different charts, same pair. Maybe then I can plan trades for the whole week.
Thanks for all the help.

Yes, that would definitely be the problem, see my response to @zrt above.

When it applies SL/TP (after position opening in Market execution mode), it looks at the current Ask/Bid rather than the position's open price. It looks like in your case, if tried to apply it to the position's open price, the SL would be below current price, which isn't possible for short trades.

Hello ! :)
Again for this GBPUSD (and not for the other trades), my SL was 39 pips instead of 7 pips in the settings, I can't understand why. How can I fix this? This is 0.01 test, but having 6 times more SL than planned is a problem :) How can I improve this if possible? (my principal setttings : https://gyazo.com/b1ccb1ec6784ac7cbba6b790e0dcb7a3
And this is not slippage.
Thank you!

You can try fixing this by finding and removing these line in the code:
MQL5:
    ENUM_SYMBOL_TRADE_EXECUTION Execution_Mode = (ENUM_SYMBOL_TRADE_EXECUTION)SymbolInfoInteger(Symbol(), SYMBOL_TRADE_EXEMODE);
    if (Execution_Mode == SYMBOL_TRADE_EXECUTION_MARKET) ECN_Mode = true;
    else ECN_Mode = false;
And replacing them with:
MQL5:
ECN_Mode = false;
But the thing is - it will likely fail to open a trade due to increased spreads.

Thanks much for your help! I did the modification in MT4 version, it compiled ok, I will try 0.01
I understand then it will likely fail due to spread (and indeed, seems it happens when spread is wider)

Could you comment this example and tell me if I understood well?

Say there is Eurusd news. Say spread always 0, never any slippage, to make things simple.
Eurusd is 1.2050
I long and short say each at 1.2050 a few second before the news. SL is 10 pips TP is 40 pips.
Say the move brings Eurusd directly from 1.2050 to 1.2090, 1 pip by 1 pip, each second.
Then, the Eurusd sell loose 10 pips.

About the Eurusd long, it will TP 40 pips, 1.2050 to 1.2090
But what about the full trailing stop if enabled?
You said it trails by the amount of the SL. Then 10 by 10 in my case?
When price , is 1.2050, before the news, SL is 1.2040.
But when price is 1.2060, what happens, does SL goes to 1.2050?
And only when price is 1.2070, SL goes to 1.2060, and so on? (until TP 1.2090 where SL will be 1.2080 ?)

Thank you for your help!

No, the trailing stop is updated every pip, but the trailing stop distance is 10 pips, so when the price goes to 1.2051, the SL goes to 1.2041. When the price goes to 1.2057, the SL goes to 1.2047, and so on.

admin please i set the sl and tp to 0 as i just need it to execute like 5 seconds and I'll manage the trades myself...on mt5 it works well and doesn't place any values but for mt4 it doesn't work it still places values... what could be the problem?

It's not meant to work with zero SL/TP. The EA's code should be changed for it to work with no SL and TP on positions.

how do i do that also if it's not meant to do that why does it work on mt5 and not on mt4..alternatively i just set the SL/TP to 900 pips so it's almost the same as no SL/TP

That's called 'unexpected behavior'. Yes, you can set SL/TP to some very large values to effectively disable them.

Good night everyone,

Am having this Error message even though the Lots is by default 0.01 ( and/or Bigger ) and MM (Money Management) is True or False :
( Minimum lot: 0.01, lot step: 0.01. )


Did this happened before with you , and what do you advise ?

Thanks a lot ..

That's not an error message. That's just an informational message to remind the trader of the current's symbol lot parameters. You can just ignore it.
