Getting the week day of a closed/open trade

Hello,

I am trying to make a simple panel that will allow me to see the open trades taken today, but I can’t seem to find code to do this. How can I determine the day a trade was opened, assuming it is still an open trade and in the terminal. I know I can use OrderOpenTime() to get the full date/time that the trade was opened on, but I’m looking to isolate only the day. Is this something we can do?

Thanks for the help.

Yes. Is it MQL4 or MQL5 ?

MQL4, sorry, didn’t specify

Hello you can take the OrderOpenTime(), and then compare it with the desired target timing interval by using one of the following functions:
