OrderSend error 131


FXBarom

Question

My MT4 trading system that works normally with other MT4 brokers always fails in IG Forex Metatrader 4 tester with "invalid trade volume" error.

OrderSend SELL error: invalid trade volume, P=1.1282, Bid=1.1282, SL=1.1302, TP=0.0000, Lot=0.1

I have tried to set a lot size to 0.1, 1, 10 - no difference, the same error occurs.

Also, I've found that IG MT4 server does not return valid values for the lots info:

The following MQL4 code:

 Print("MODE_MINLOT= ", MarketInfo(Symbol(), MODE_MINLOT));
 Print("MODE_LOTSTEP= ", MarketInfo(Symbol(), MODE_LOTSTEP));
 Print("MODE_MAXLOT= ", MarketInfo(Symbol(), MODE_MAXLOT));

returns zeroes for all three values

Thank you, I will, but don't know why account details are relevant if it fails in MT4 Strategy Tester that has absolutely independent settings, in particular allows to set a spread, balance, etc. that have nothing to do with real market and account type.

I'm aware about 2-step order brokers and tried both approaches.

=============

   if (type== OP_SELL ) {
       P= Bid;

      //TP= OP- PipToPrc(OC);

       if (TakeProfit> 0) {
           TP = P- PipToPrc(TakeProfit);
       } else
           TP= 0;


       P= NormFXPrice(P); TP= NormFXPrice(TP); SL= NormFXPrice(SL);

       if (TwoStepOrder) {
           T= OrderSend( Symbol(), OP_SELL, LotSize, P, 3, 0, 0);//, OrdComm, MagicNumber, 0, SellColor);

           Sleep(DELAY);

         if (T< 1) {
            PrintOrderError(T, "2-step OrderSend error ", GetLastError(), P, Bid, 0, 0);
         } else {
            if ( !OrderModify(T, OrderOpenPrice(), SL, TP, SellColor) )
               PrintOrderError(T, "OrderModify error ", GetLastError(), P, Bid, SL, TP);
        }

       } else {
          T= OrderSend( Symbol(), OP_SELL, LotSize, P, 3, SL, TP);
          if (T< 1)
           Print("OrderSend SELL error: "+ ErrorDescription(GetLastError())+ ", P="+ PrcToStr(P)+ ", Bid="+ PrcToStr(Bid)+ ", SL="+ PrcToStr(SL)+ ", "+"TP="+ PrcToStr(TP)+ ", Lot="+ LotSize);
      }
   }

    • @KoketsoIGFollowing up endlessly. Any updates yet?
    • Recently, we have noticed the growth of Mobile mining, a lot of projects have sprung up where users earn passively through these mining platforms. Under the same breath, ICE blockchain has evolved as a new digital currency that can be mined or earned from any mobile device. The bourgeoning blockchain is solely based on a community of trust and has a decentralized governance model. The network is built with inherent scalability, such that it can scale a good number of network participants without compromising its speed or efficiency. On its most positive side, the Ice Open Network has high performance and has the innate capacity to process millions of transactions per second, heralding it as one of the fastest blockchains in the world. Through the instrument of its threads and shards, it parallelizes transactions into bits thus significantly increasing throughput and enhancing scalabilty. Apart from being highly scalable, it is an offshoot of TON blockchain that seeks to bring forth decentralized services for data privacy, user control and efficient data management. In the core spirit of Web3, Ice network has a decentralized identity service that allows users to create and manage their own digital identities with top level assurance, privacy and security. Flowing from above, the ICE network has a good number of usecases and more are in the offing as well. Consequently, platforms like Bitget have declared intent to list the native token $ICE on 28th February, with a deposit to earn event. This is a really good way for the project to garner spotlight. I’m optimistic as per its growth in the long run.    
    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
