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!
