What exactly does it say in the Experts tab or in the respective log file after the order fails?

Thank you, this question solved it . the log file only showed "uninit reason 1", but the experts Tab also showed the exact reason which was
"Current spread 6 > maximum spread 3. Not opening the trade"

By the log file, I didn't mean the MetaTrader's Journal. The Timed Order expert advisor creates its own log file in the Files folder called "TO-Log-<Symbol name>.log" - it contains the same info as the Experts tab. I'm glad that you were able to resolve the issue!

Does it have an option to execute automatically in the open time of the market without specifying the time and date ?

Discuss the Timed Order expert advisor here. This free MT4/MT5/cTrader EA provides a way to schedule a pending or market order to be sent to the trading server at a specific time. You can ask any questions about this MetaTrader/cTrader robot here.

Is it possible to set entry price a set number of pips above/below the market price? ie set buy stop for a certain time to enter 10 pips above current price instead of having to specify an entry price ahead of time?

No, it cannot do that. Perhaps, this will be added in the future.

How do I modify the inputs? Which window/tab should I open to edit the time and order type, SL, TP and so on?

The field "CalculatePositionSize: Use money management module?" it doesn't work when i select true.
Any variation I made in the settings the lot size was always 0.01 (it took the value from the FixedPositionSize field).
I have attached the file with the settings I use. I would really appreciate your help. Thanks in advance!

Should now be fixed in 1.001. Please re-download and re-compile. Please let me know how it works for you.
