Hi,

Does my computer need to be on 24/7 to receive signals? I have read conflicting views. Some say yes, others no.

Others say that I should use virtual hosting etc etc...The correct answer would be appreciated...Thanks.

It should be on 24/7 (24/5; means: 7 except weekends = 5 because market is closed for the weekends).
But you can use Virtual Hosting instead. The Metatrader (receiving the signal) is running on VPS - read this post for more information.

Mql5 VPS (Virtual hosting)?
If yes so - did you make sinchronization? Because EA on mql5 VPS is always in autotrading ... of course you can remove the EA but you should make a sinchronization after this action just to transfer this action to VPS for example.

I did it Sir, Ok I will try it again, Btw Thank your for help Sir


Update Status still not work after sync Sir

I try to analyze it, maybe the problem come from my EA logic, algorithm inside call function to another time frame, I see the sync just only to the active Time Frame
