Trades Not Triggering

💡
Addressing Entry Discrepancies In the event of discrepancies between your TradingView entries and MetaTrader's order records, please follow these steps for resolution:
  1. First, cross-check your TradingView's alerts log and the PineConnector Signals Log
  2. Once the logs above match, evaluate the Experts output which prints more information on how your signal is being processed by the EA.

It's important to note that the comparison should not be made solely between your TradingView chart and MetaTrader trade log as there is possibility of errors in your entry coding, misconfiguration of your alerts, or a combination of both factors.

💡
No trade despite trigger If alerts are being generated on TradingView but the EA is not detecting any signals, kindly review the following checklist.

If the expiration date is visible on your MetaTrader terminal but signals are not being received, the issue is most likely related to your TradingView configuration.

💡
Signals Record When troubleshooting this problem, make sure to verify that your alerts are recorded in the Signals Log - a log of all alerts received under your License ID.
