Hi all. Just wanted to ask about how secure your Expert Advisors are after you build them on your computer. Will administrators of the MT4 or MT5 or anyone else on the network will have access to those EAs?

Not if they are on your computer.

I really doubt that anyone in MQL5 would want to test everyone's EAs to see if they are profitable anyway.

Sorry, another dumb question - in order for EA to work, do I need to have the chart where it is installed open or even if the chart is closed but MT4 is open on a different profile displaying a different chart the EA still works?

Profiling means collecting program parameters during its execution. During a profiling, the execution time and the number of calls of individual functions and program code lines are measured. With this tool, the programmer is able to find and optimize the slowest code sections. Profiling can be performed on the normal chart of the trading...

Depends on how the EA is coded.

Of course you can not remove an EA and expect it to keep working

Thank you Marco. Let me clarify - so the chart with EA has to be in the active profile and visible on the screen. Is that correct?

Let's say if I have 4 charts in the currently active profile and leave only one open, but the other one with EA is not visible/active now, will it work then?

The chart has to be open and the EA has to be loaded on the chart.

It does not have to be on top or visible it just have to be open.
