Topic: EA for MT5 dont work in 'Hedging Mode'

Hallo,

it seems that generated EAs for MT5 dont work on Accounts thats use the new hedging mode.

they dont open orders, see expert log:

On normal mt5 demo accounts without hedging, they run without errors.

Problem is, that my alpari mt5 account has hedging enabled and i cant change this in the configuration.
Is there a solution to solve this problem?

Thank you and best regards.

Re: EA for MT5 dont work in 'Hedging Mode'

please attach the strategy and a screenshot of your FSBPro

I am not so sure that the hedging thing is the problem.

My 'secret' goal is to push EA Studio until I can net 3000 pips per day....

Re: EA for MT5 dont work in 'Hedging Mode'

Hallo,

after more testing, it seems that the EA dont run with demo accounts from metaquotes on mt5.
I have created 2 accounts with hedging and without, same errors like in my first post.

With my mt5 alpari real account and mt5 alpari demo account the ea is partially working, sometimes they place orders without sl and tp. Normaly all orders have set sl and tp. This orders where never closed so after few days the ea ends in a stop out.

On MT4 i dont have this Problems.

Dont know if its just my system that causes this errors.

Hallo,

unfortunately i dont find any Solution, so i give up:(
To bad, because i think mt5 is the better platform to backtest exported ea's from fsb.

best regards

Re: EA for MT5 dont work in 'Hedging Mode'

Submit the journal from MT5, I use MT5 a lot and most problems that I find are to do with my errors....

Please let us have a look at MT5 journal and we will locate a solution.

MT5 has recently been revised, there may be a correction needed in the code.


***********************************************************************

There are not many advantages to MT5 over MT4

There are some programming advantages, the software allows some different techniques (if you are a programmer)
The data may be easier to obtain for FSBPro.
You can use the cloud for backtesting which will cost a little bit of money.

Other than those..... not much to warrant using MT5

Metaquotes seems to be giving the most attention to MT4 and it is slowly starting to be similar to MT5, it may be prudent to stay with MT4.  So far there is still quite a bit of resistance to MT5.

Re: EA for MT5 dont work in 'Hedging Mode'

Popov will have a look at that error...... I think there is a code that needs to be changed a bit.

Re: EA for MT5 dont work in 'Hedging Mode'

Can you give me a link to the platform that produces this error?
It must be a something special for that platform or account.

Can you try with entry in Lots instead of %?

Re: EA for MT5 dont work in 'Hedging Mode'

Hallo,

i have backtested the strategy on my alpari mt5 demo account.
The Problem is, that after the first or second order the ea dont place sl and tp anymore.
Not sure this Problem exist only on the backtester.
i have tried with fixed lots and %, but no change in the order execution.

At the moment i try a forwardtest on the demo account, it will take some time for some trades.

With mt5 demo accounts directly from metaqoutes i have the same errors like cybermanu.
no difference between trading in netting or hedging mode.

Hello ForexNoop,

I opened a demo at Alpari - MT5 - Hadging.

Your strategy trades without errors:

I tested it also on the MT backtester and it also works without errors.

I cannot reproduce the problem.

Re: EA for MT5 dont work in 'Hedging Mode'

The Problem is, that after the first or second order the ea dont place sl and tp anymore.

I noticed that. I'll inspect the problem.

Re: EA for MT5 dont work in 'Hedging Mode'

Hi all !!!

This morning i have install and create an alpari platform and an account.
The backtest best1 strategy is OK . No errors.

I don't understand why. Maybe the account or the server of Activtrades ...

see you later

Hallo Popov,

thank you for your effort!

Only on MT5 Demo Accounts from Metaqoutes i get the described errors.
(Error: ActionTrade::ManageOrderSend(): OrderCheck(): Invalid price in the request)

@cybermanu

Are you sure that your ea is working?
On my account, with the backtester your ea opens orders but never close it.

Re: EA for MT5 dont work in 'Hedging Mode'

Thank you for the video,

Can you give me a TeamViewer access to your system. I think I can debug and fix it for 15 minutes on your comp.
The problem is that this problem doesn't happen on my terminal and I cannot guess what is the reason.

Please send me a PM with the login info and at what time is convenient for you.

Re: EA for MT5 dont work in 'Hedging Mode'

I am also having same problem, same error and cannot execute any trades in MetaTrader 5, I opened a MetaTrader 5 demo account from MetaQuotes

(Error: ActionTrade::ManageOrderSend(): OrderCheck(): Invalid price in the request)

Re: EA for MT5 dont work in 'Hedging Mode'

That is weird. I do not specify "Price" for the function OrderCheck because the EA executes only Market Order. It must be correct as per documentation:

Price, reaching which the order must be executed. Market orders of symbols, whose execution type is "Market Execution" (SYMBOL_TRADE_EXECUTION_MARKET), of TRADE_ACTION_DEAL type, do not require specification of price.


The code is:

            MqlTradeRequest request;
            MqlTradeResult result;
            MqlTradeCheckResult check;
            ZeroMemory(request);
            ZeroMemory(result);
            ZeroMemory(check);

            request.action       = TRADE_ACTION_DEAL;
            request.symbol       = _Symbol;
            request.volume       = orderLots;
            request.type         = (type == OP_BUY) ? ORDER_TYPE_BUY : ORDER_TYPE_SELL;
            request.type_filling = ORDER_FILLING_FOK;
            request.deviation    = 10;
            request.sl           = stopLossPrice;
            request.tp           = takeProfitPrice;
            request.comment      = OrderComment;

            bool isOrderCheck = OrderCheck(request, check);
            string retcode = ResultRetcodeDescription(check.retcode);

I'll try to reproduce the error and fix it.

Re: EA for MT5 dont work in 'Hedging Mode'

This is absolutely wrong. The MT5 tester doesn't open trades in "tester" because the "Trade is disabled".

http://s31.postimg.org/6xcjpkglj/screenshot_1817.jpg

What can I do? There is no info on that problem in the MQL forums.

Re: EA for MT5 dont work in 'Hedging Mode'

I opened a topic in the MQL forums. I hope we will receive answer there.
