Let's get to the bottom of this. Try this version and tell me what it says in the BT journal, or the Terminal Expert tab. It will say TP Buy(or Sell) = xxxx. Report back what numbers you see, maybe even the SL numbers also.

Boston Technologies

Boston Technologies

Boston Technologies is not a broker, they only provide MT4 platform for FXCM (broker). I had FXCM before for a while while using Boston Technologies MT4 to trade, very very bad platform.
I don't think is FXCM, it is the MT4 that Boston is providing. I strongly urge people not to trade with BT MT4 platform, many lags, old ticks and many times with placement order issue. It cost me some money because of that, so i walked away from it.

I have similar error on FXDD real account, and cannot backtest.

I have similar error on FXDD real account, and cannot backtest.

Its clear that there is something up with the SL/TP calculation looking at the journal output and looks more like instead of price + tp pips the ea is sending tp pips only, similar for sl.

my backtests were on FXDD demo, but I also have FXDD live, so maybe later I will try testing it on my live account to see if it still works for me. Will follow up later.

Just to clear this up. When we say "BT", we only mean backtest, because we are lazy in typing.:D

Back to the main topic here. I looked through the code, and have probably narrowed the problem down to the dll, which calculates the pending order prices, which is then used to calculate the SL and TP. If the dll is not cooperating, it will return a value of 0, so that is why the SL and TP appear to be just the pip values only. I'm not sure how to solve this problem, because it works fine on my FXDD demo. SL and TP are all working. If real accounts are goofing up, we can try to resolve that by eliminating the dll.
