Hello, I would like to have a code that buys and sells at same time, but this way it is clearly not working. Here is the code.

import com.dukascopy.api.*;

public class flipper implements IStrategy {

    public Instrument instrument = Instrument.EURUSD;
    public double betsize = 0.001;

    @Configurable("Stop Loss")
    public double stoploss = 300;
    @Configurable("Take Profit")
    public double takeprofit = 5;
    public double spreadlimit = 1;

    private IEngine engine;
    private IConsole console;
    private IOrder order;
    public void onStart(IContext context) throws JFException {

         this.engine = context.getEngine();
         this.console = context.getConsole();
        engine = context.getEngine();
        console = context.getConsole();
        context.setSubscribedInstruments(java.util.Collections.singleton(Instrument.EURUSD), true);
    public void onMessage(IMessage message) throws JFException {}
    public void onTick(Instrument instrument, ITick tick) throws JFException {
        order = engine.submitOrder("EURUSD" + System.currentTimeMillis(), Instrument.EURUSD, IEngine.OrderCommand.BUY, betsize ,0, spreadlimit, tick.getAsk() - stoploss  * Instrument.EURUSD.getPipValue(),
                tick.getAsk() + takeprofit * Instrument.EURUSD.getPipValue(), 0, "A: "  + " B: ");
        order = engine.submitOrder("EURUSD" + System.currentTimeMillis(), Instrument.EURUSD, IEngine.OrderCommand.SELL, betsize, 0, spreadlimit, tick.getBid() + stoploss * Instrument.EURUSD.getPipValue(),
                tick.getBid() - takeprofit * Instrument.EURUSD.getPipValue(), 0, "A: " + " B: ");


    public void onBar(Instrument instrument, Period period, IBar askBar, IBar bidBar) throws JFException {}
    public void onAccount(IAccount account) throws JFException {}
    public void onStop() throws JFException {}}

And here is the result Image


as you can see it does not buy and sell every time, even that the code says it should?

JForex API does not allow multiple orders to have same label. In your case SELL will have in 99.99% of cases same label as BUY.
