Hi guys,
So I'm a resident doctor who's gotten hooked on trading, 2years so far and dare I say it's profitable.
So cus of my schedule I decided to learn how to code my own EA.

Here goes..
My plans quite simple, basically 5 and 10 MA cross-over.
I've successfully defined all my parameters and how it should go.
But the problem I keep getting errors in is opening and closing buy and sell orders and lot sizes.
What I want is simply to buy when 5 crosses above 10,then close when 5 crosses below 10 and open a sell order immediately, just 1 order at a time.
And for the lot sizes, I want it to automatically calculate my lot size to always take one fifth of my free margin so I wouldn't get stuck on a fixed lot size as my balance grows.

I'd really appreciate whomever can guide me through this process.. Thanks in anticipation, all ideas are welcome.
