The external values were used to calculate the StopLoss and TakeProfit levels, which we will use in the OrderSend function today.

Another important parameter is cmd variable, which is used to specify the direction of your intended trade. In the video below I will show you how to use the OP_BUY keyword to execute a Buy transaction. Similarly, OP_SELL can be used to execute Sell orders.
