Very confused---stop wont move with the candles

Hopefully someone can help me out of this.
In the following code opening a long position if the current price is higher than the previous candle's High.
Then I set a profit target, and a stop loss. The profit target is static, so that works fine, but the stop loss is variable. I have set it to look for the lowest price of the last 5 candles, and set that as a stop loss. However, in my code, what it does is that it sets the stop loss based on the lowest price of the 5 candles before the trade candle, and fixes it at that value.
I want the stop to keep on moving with each candle, i-e, after each candle, it evaluates the lowest value of the last 5 candles and sets the stop as that....
Any ideas on what Im missing, or what I need to add to the following code to achieve that?

		if (OrderCloseTime() != 0 || LongTicket == 0)

bool buy_condition_1 = Ask >= High[1]; 

 if( buy_condition_1)
		      LongTicket = OrderSend(Symbol(),OP_BUY,LotSize,Ask,0,0,0,"Buy Order",MagicNumber,0,Green);
		      double OpenPrice = OrderOpenPrice();
                      double LongStopLoss =  Low[iLowest(NULL,0,MODE_LOW,5,1)];
                      double LongTakeProfit = OpenPrice + (TakeProfit * TickPoints);
				if(LongStopLoss > 0 || LongTakeProfit > 0) 
                       bool LongMod = OrderModify(OrderTicket(),OpenPrice,LongStopLoss, LongTakeProfit,0);
