order (int type): int
User-supplied function that is called by the trade engine every time when Zorro enters or exits a trade. Can be used to access external broker APIs, control external trade programs by sending keys, or just pop up a message for manually entering or exiting a trade.
type - 1 for entering, 2 for exiting a trade.
0 when the trade could not be opened or closed, 1 otherwise.
- For implementing a complete broker interface instead of only a buy/sell function, a broker plugin can be written.
- All trade variables f.i. for determining the asset and algo are available in the order function.
