closing trades on MT4

Hi guys,

Well I've tried what you suggested Casey to no avial. I can set up a pending order no problem and that works nicely. However when I change the lot size using the arrows then move my mouse a bit MT4 just crashes. Then I relaunch MT4 and set the stop order by double clicking on the appropriate ladder and it sets the order. When that order fills it just starts another order and does not close part of the original order. This is what I was left with.

I've  tried with both NonHedgingMode = true and false and the same thing happens.

 

Out of curiosity - How is the order processed? If you say it's a function of the mini terminal and you can't send the order using the MT4 order window I'm intrigued to know what parameter in the pending order (which is broker side) is set to tell them to close the opposite position? Surely if the closure part was done by the mini terminal it wouldn't be filled as it's the same as manual pressing close in MT4.

If anyone can shed some light that would good,

cheers,

Ed

As above the pending order in Orange means it's lodged with the broker.

How did it work out on the live platform as I did in the post above on usdjpy just for the demonstration?

I will try on a live account and let you know.

I'm still struggling to understand what parameter is mini terminal setting on the order ticket to tell it not to take a hedge trade and to close part of the existing trade? Mini terminal must be setting a flag somewhere to do this?

As I said earlier and others also have concerns that the demo platforms have been playing up lately. On the mt4 live platform you can stop the bet size right down to 10 pence a point.

@EdFuk, see here;

 

Nice concise video there Casey. The way this chap scaled out of the trade is how I normally do it, however I have been unable to do this during the high volatility of recent times. This is because it is an instant execution order rather than a pending one in the queue. I'd love to find out if there is a way to schedule a pending partial closure within MT4 and not relying on mini terminal. I have to say I still don't understand how the mini terminal is supposed to work.

    • I trade leveraged futures on Binance so I'm going to miss them, not that much though cos I also use Bitget exchange, and they have high liquidity and low fees, So I will just move my funds there and continue leveraged trading.
    • If you've tried using Ethereum, you know it can get slow and expensive. Think of Starknet as a helper that makes everything faster and cheaper. It does this by taking a bunch of transactions, squishing them into one, and then processing that one. This means more transactions can happen at once without clogging up the system. For people making apps on the blockchain (they call these dApps), Starknet is like a dream come true because it lets their apps handle a lot more users without slowing down. It also gives them the freedom to make their apps work just how they want, making things better for users. When it comes to making money, Starknet charges fees to use its network and lets people 'stake' their coins – that's like putting your money in a savings account that helps the network run, and you get a little reward for that. So, what do you think about Starknet? It's all about helping Ethereum handle more action without any hassle. Could be a big deal for how we use digital money, right?
