Topic: Opening multiple trades

Hello friends
I built a robot that has a loser option in the additional Entry signals section.
The problem is that, At the beginning of the trading, opens a large number of entry points.
Is there a solution to this problem that does not open a lot of trades in the beginning?
Sorry, my first language is not English.

Re: Opening multiple trades

It is not a problem but rather the outcome of additional entry setting (loser). You might want to change that.

Re: Opening multiple trades

Thank you for your answer
Is there a solution that does not do the extra entry for a few elementary candlesticks?
for example:
There is an indicator in the software called the "Enter Once"
If an option is developed in the following way, it solves the problem of additional entry at the beginning of the transaction:
"enter no more than once a hour"

It is worth noting, Although I chose to loser, But in the direction of profit has opened additional trades (Look at the figure ).

Re: Opening multiple trades

Those seem to be sell trades and there's no significant movement, meaning they are in loss territory by the range of spread.

My current advice is to drop or change the loser setting, I'll think about it more. But that is how loser option works, if there is additional same direction signal and it has not reached profit level, it opens new order. "Enter once" indi is not an option for you?

Re: Opening multiple trades

There are only these 4 options in this indicator. (Attached figure)
It would be great if there was hour or minute mode in this indicator. I'm sure friends who use the "additional Entry signals" section have this problem.
My purpose in using the "loser" option is that if the trade loses after several hours, the trade closes with a lower profit or loss when it sees a signal in favor.

The best solution is to avoid such cases completely. At least during the testing period. Leave the "additional entry" options to "nothing" and the Generator will try to find strategies that do not lose after several hours.

Re: Opening multiple trades

I was able to solve the problem
The steps were as follows:
First I added the "Enter Once" indicator to the expert (Figure 1)
Then I made the following changes in the mq4 file (Figure 2)
