I want to copy a signal provider but the following problem happens:
1. It doesn't appear on my Mt4 Signal's tab. And yes, My MT4 is connected to MQL5.com with my user.
2. If I try to copy it from MQL5.com a different MT4 platform is automatically opened, not the one I want.
Could someone please help me?
Signal's data, trading history and statistics are based on signal provider's account.
Search for it on the upper right corner of MT4/5 terminal (search area) and follow these instructions: https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/189731
as a newbie, i do not understand one thing - this signal has very high profit factor. But how come the same signal also has extreme drawdown so much so that it is no more available for subscription?
Ask the signal provider and stop promoting/advertising signals in the forum, its not allowed.
Thanks Sergey, I understood all clearly

You say that, as if averaging is not evil, but good. This indicator (for what period of life of the account in percents 80% Growth was achieved) was introduced to clearly show the accounts on which the acceleration tactics are used. A potential subscriber should understand that he has an account that was dispersed in a few days (and perhaps it was one only lucky account of 10-30 accounts) in order to post it later and show a beautiful chart.
A side effect was that it also detects accounts well with averaging tactics that ruined so many deposits. So this warning fulfills its role.
Hi Eleni, the signal provider doesn't answer - so i am getting back to here. You can answer in a general perspective about the possible reasons. then i will find out by visiting the specific signal data what is happening there
