This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

There are people much better than me at easylanguage here, but let me make an attempt.

Easylanguage code runs at the end of each bar, and orders are sent for the next bar. So in your case it's evaluating bar 1 and sending the order on bar 2. In order for the order to still be active on bar 3, there would have to be something on bar 2 as well.

If you did something like
If {trade criteria is met} then myworkorderflag = true;
If myworkorderflag = true then buy next bar at {price} limit;

this will continue working the order as long as myworkorderflag = true and not just for the one bar following the bar that {trade criteria is met}
