Hello Musuk.
Please change the Time in Force to GTC (Good till cancel).
For auto trading please go to Format->Strategy properties->MBTrading properties->Time in force->GTC.
For manual trading please make a right click on the Stop Loss Exit Strategy->Edit->More parameters->Time in force->GTC.

Unfortunately there is no video tutorial for manual trading at the moment.
We are working on some videos and going to release them soon.

thanks its working now

but i have now a bigger problem
i have a MBTUK account trading forex and i have a demo account with them now every time i trade in multichart with the real account it goes to the demo account and when i try to close the trading from the demo account i see another trade in real account its so messed up that if i trade with the demo account i see profit / loss in real account from the the order window?
as just about 10 minutes ago i tried to test the OCO and see if it work on the demo account and boom it made a deal on my real and demo account.

so please can you tell me what should i do as i can disable the demo account from the MBT website but i need it to practice and learn how to use multichart.

This beta is stable.
You don't need to uninstall.
The installation manager will update MultiCharts to the new version.
