OrderSend error #131 invalid trade volume


wcjoker

Question

Hello,

I am seeing this error all the time when attempting to back test in MT4 with EVERY EA I can find. My lot size doesn't matter, tried a percentage of account, I tried every lot size I could before giving up, 1.0, .1,.2,.3 etc.... I messed with max slippage from 3 to 6, not sure that even matters, but what is the deal with MT4 and back testing?  I do have a live account but still not trading because I can't back test my system.

Any help would be awesome, thanks in advance!

I am a new US client so it may have something to do with a kink in the system, I know IG is still working all these things out, but who knows.

I hope you are right, I don't recall anyone posting a similar 131 error message problem before on the forum, I'd also send the helpdesk an email if you haven't already done to request tech staff look into the problem.

I'm having the same issue. Did you ever get this resolved?

Hi All!

It's 8/8/20. I just recently started using MT4 and I can't get the strategy tester or EA to actually make a trade due to the errors:

OrderSend error 131

Error opening BUY order: 131

I can get both processes tor run, but no trades are made. Any help is GREATLY appreciated!

    • Given 3 of the top 5 largest US stocks reported at close some volatility is a given no doubt
