Hi everyone.

I want to ask some question about how to hide trade comment.

If I am signal provider.

If someone copy my signal.

Can I hide my trade comment not show on copier MT4 terminal?


Thank you.


The comments at the subscriber side is your signal name instead of your comments.

Advertisement by order comments is prohibited,so your comments is filtered by MQL5 system.

Hi,

I had subscribed to a signal service with $100 deposit just recently. The next day when I increased the deposit from $100 to $200 all my open trades at the broker's trading account just vanished, although I can view it in my MT4 terminal. Can someone please tell what went wrong and how to rectify it? Thank you.

No we can't.

Contact your broker.

I want to subscribe to two signals.

Please, could I run two signals on two different accounts with the same broker on the same machine?

Or how this could be acheived?

Thanks for your answers !

Regards,
Sam 

1) ONE signal can be subs to only ONE mt4 acct

2) ONE mt4 acct can have ONE signal + own EA + manual trades

thus u have 2 mt4 and each can have ONE signal. To open multi mt4, pls skype me (open my profile there is skype icon) or google on how to create multi mt4 so that u can open it different tabs on task bar and able to c the acct number/description for that icon on task bar of your vps

Not sure what u meant by broker trading acct, if u can view in mt4 its there. If u meant broker also has facility to let u know/view your open trades, perhaps its your broker's interface, or u need refresh that page? If its on broker's site, then u may also need to explore whether using eg Firefox can solve it and to chat w support on this issue

Hi....if already subscribed to a signal, is there an option to pause that subscription for a week or 2, without incurring further subscription costs...

u can pause a signal subscription via 2 methods

1) in mt4, untick everything including risk etc to pause it, MQL will no copy new trades from provider neither will it manage exit from provider

2) in mql logon to view your subscription and there is a pause button

a) Click on payment on your profile

b) search for payment to your signal and click on that link (pause signal pic). It will open up signal page

c) click on your acct number which appears under the provider's pic (acct subs to signal link)

d) it will open my signal subs page

e) scroll right there are 3 small icons (very small icons) for renewal, suspend, unsubs (signal subs page). Hover over the small icons to view the description and choose pause which has a "stop" sign

2) Pausing a signal and unsubs is still being charged

Hope this detail explanation helps. If not i can be reached via skype

Eleni Anna Branou, 2017.04.10 10:02

Below are step by step instructions, of how to subscribe to a MΤ4 signal:


1. Register a MQL5 account: https://www.mql5.com/en/auth_register 

2. Open your MT4 platform and go to Menu >> Tools >> Optios and click on the Community tab. There you put your Login and Password of your MQL5 account and click OK.

 

 

 

3. Go to the search area of your MT4 platform, on the upper right corner (where the magnifying glass is), type in the name of the signal you want to subscribe and click Enter.

 

 

 

4. You will see lower, in the Terminal Window of your MT4 platform, the results of your search. Click on the name of the signal you want to subscribe. 

 

 

 

5. Click on the green Subscribe for $$ USD button on the right side of your MT4's Terminal Window.

I was subscribed to a signal that currently has high drawdown. The subscription expired yesterday and I forgot to renew it. Now I can't subscribe it again due to high drawdown. What do I do in order to renew the subscription?

Because I still have opened positions with that signal.
