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.
Depends on how the EA is coded.
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.
Can someone tell me if my MT4/EA will keep running after i locked my computer (Win + L)? Thanks a lot for your help.
the simple answer is no!
as long as your mt4 plattform is running the EA runs. as soon as you stop the plattform EA is off.
But there is a number of mt4 platforms that offer a Virtual Private Server, where you can host your EA (even free of charge)
so that your EA runs on a server. capacity, speed etc need to be verified, because if something is for free there may
be far to many EA running and your executions may be delayed or bad.
I run me EA on an old lap-top 24h/5 that is next to me in my office.
hope this helps
what if my mt4 on my phone is running, will the EA run?
