I am new here, I decided I would like to create an Expert Advisor. I am busy getting familiar with MQL5 and it is going great! I thought I would start of by creating a simple MA crossover EA, and so far so good.
The problem comes in when I need to open a trade.
I want my EA to only **BUY** if the candle stick after the MA cross _**closes**_ higher than the candle stick at the cross. and do the complete opposite for a **SELL**
I tried using **priceInfo[-1].close** but that obviously that doesn't work. ('_priceInfo_' is the array for mqlRates)
So could this be solved with logic ? Or is there a method that I can use ? And if so any help would be appreciated.
Just a visual explanation:
In other words this is what I would like for a **Buy**:

And for a **Sell**:
