Thread: How to specify to EA not to open new trades after London close

  1. #1
    Men I need to put to my EA to not start new order after London close, start trading just after London opens. Also if it's likely to set a profit target for a day when EA reaches too to not open another order until London reopens

    Thanks in advance whoever assists.

    One method is to have a bool function to check if the period is between London open and London close.

    Create some input factors so it's possible to alter the London hours as required:
    Inserted Code enter LonOpen=8; // London Open (broker time) enter LonClose=17; // London Close (broker time)
    Add the job:
    Inserted Code bool London() if(Hour()gt;=LonOpen Hour()lt;LonClose) return(true); return(false);
    Before launching an order, simply check the return value of London()
    Inserted Code if(London()... ) {

    This depends on what you mean with per day. Do you mean that a 24 hour interval, or profit produced between London open and London near?
    How do you want to take care of orders that were opened after London open but did not shut until after London shut (or maybe even after the next London open)?
    Can it be time the order started or the period the order closed that is significant to you?

    I need EA not to start orders some hours until London closes rather flexible.

    The remainder orders will stay open until TP is hit as it's based on martingale. Now if this usually do not occurs until next London open it will keep on opening new actions.

    Let us say I start an order two weeks until London close then EA open orders till TP is hit even if it requires a few days. I only wish to prevent EA to start orders lets say one hour prior to London closes and allow it to operate for all the evening.
    Also I would like to add to EA if profit reaches xx usd level then not to start orders until next London opening.

    Hope you have the idea. Thanks for help mate.
