The manual states that TradeDate is:
Quote
The time in Windows Date format when the trade was entered (for pending trades) or opened (for open trades).


However, this toy code:
Code
int checkTradeEntryDate()
{
	print(TO_LOG,"\nTradeEntry=%s", strdate(HMS, (var)TradeDate) );
	
	return 0;
}

function run()
{
	set(LOGFILE,TICKS);
	
	StartDate=2020;	
	BarPeriod=60;
	MaxLong =1;
	
	LifeTime=5;
	
	Entry = -5*PIP;
	
	if (priceClose(0)>priceClose(1))
	  enterLong(checkTradeEntryDate);	
}

produces this output:
Quote
[82: Tue 20-01-07 22:00] (1.11524)
(EUR/USD::L) Long 1@1.11474 Entry limit
(EUR/USD::L) Entry limit 1.11474 hit by 1.11468 at 22:01:00
TradeEntry=NaD
[EUR/USD::L08301] Long 1@1.11480 at 22:01:00
TradeEntry=22:01:00
TradeEntry=22:01:00


TradeDate never contains the time of trade entry, only the time when a trade was actually open.

Right, the first part of the sentence is wrong formulated. Correct is:

"The time in Windows Date format when a trade is to be entered (for pending trades with OrderDelay) or was opened (for open trades)."

Similarly, TradeExitDate does not hold the time of a pending order expiry. Is it also only correct for those entries with OrderDelay?

Would be great to make these work as was previously described (which is quite logical and convenient), rather than changing the manual to fit implementation...
