Hello all,


I've a very weird problem and would like if someone knows an approach to it.

Sometimes my terminal get "stuck". In that I don't seem to receive any more ticks anymore.

Well, the "last updated time" from the server (above the symbols window pane) doesn't run anymore. The graph is stuck at that time. So basically, I don't get ticks anymore.


I tried contacting the broker to see if it's from their side but their as puzzled as I am.


I know MT4 does auto-reconnect when logged out from the broker, but somehow it looks like this is not reconnecting... The terminal is not even seeing that it has been disconnected!


What could I do in this case?


I'm running it inside a virtualbox on WindowsXP.

Try installing inside windows xp directly. No need to install inside virtualbox.

Asking on this forum is indeed a better idea than asking to the broker (or should I say the broker's salesman..).

There may be plenty of reasons for MT to loose connection and having a VB in the middle doesn't help as you also different ways to set up the network.

Also there's way to check if it's on your side of the network, you could create a demo a/c with a different broker, get their version of MT and see the difference?
