    Hi aagarcia,

    Yes, there is an ECN option.

    Thanks funyoo. I have a dilemma. I purchased FXZapper and now find out it is a copy of your EA. I ran it on ACTBrokers (an ECN). But it had problems when it went to modify SL and TP. It would try to ping the server too much and many times place the trade either without SL or TP. (ECN set to true) I want to get a refund and purchase yours but would I have this same problem? The tech guy at ACTBrokers told me it was because it wasn't completely compliant with Metaquotes. Any advice? Thanks

    Hi aagarcia,

    Normally, the ECN option generates the trade once without stoploss and takeprofit. Then it modifies it to add SL and TP. You can still use hidesl and hidetp instead of the ECN parameter.

    Thanks funyoo. Does that mean if I don't activate the ECN option than it will set the trade AND TP with SL? I can use it this way with an ECN? I'm not sure I understand. When the Zapper software set the trade on my ECN it would do as you say- set the trade then modify after with TP and SL. Problem is that AFTER setting the trade it was having problems setting the TP and SL. So my trades were set where sometimes I was trading without either SL or TP.
    I just need it to set the trade and then make sure a TP and SL sets.

    Default It's not simply about ECN

    Hi funyoo,

    The issue that aagarcia refers to is one of the EA not testing error return codes after submitting the order to the server. Due to the high speed execution ATC offers for scalpers and grid traders, ATC uses a one second "Too Frequent Request" option to deter pipsers and cheaters. Any consecutive modify of an order in less than one second will result in a rejection of the modify. When the EA is not reading the return codes, it can never come to know this and may attempt the modify next tick.

    This error process lets ATC support a very tight Freeze/SL of only a single, fixed, one Pip value and still support tight scalping and grid trading.

    MQ Recommended error managements can be found here Here

    The MtServer is a per-transaction, telnet based server and requires at least moderate error management. While it appears relatively simple on the surface, making a well designed, error tolerant EA which will work well across all brokers, is a learning process, where access to a Metaquotes server makes this task considerably easier to see, test and understand.

    If you would like error control tossed into the EA, let me know, I'd be glad to help out. (Shame on Zapper)

    ATC also supports 3 part integrated orders on their ECN, so it's not essential to select the ECN option in order to trade the xbars on ATC, which means the SL/TP will post with the main order, not after.
