1. Did you download Metatrader 4 from the broker's website? Or Metatrader 5 from broker's website/this MQL5 portal?

Did you downloaded ... what? ...

2. Did you registered on this forum/portal to be/to post here, right?
And you registered on the broker's website and open live account with them?

3. Where did you registered your live account?
Because MetaQuotes company is not a broker so you can not registered live account here ...
So, you just registered your username/pass for this portal/forum, right?

Getting StartedOpen an Account



Live Account Opening
Live accounts, unlike demo, cannot be opened straight from the platform. They can only be opened by brokerage companies under certain terms and conditions. However, a real account request can be sent to a broker from the trading platform.

This can be done by specifying "New real account" in the account type selection step. Next specify your personal details, like when you open a demo account. A preliminary account is opened then on the broker's server. This account is created with a zero balance; and trading from it is disabled.

Soon after opening the preliminary account, a representative of the brokerage company will contact you to finish the procedure of real account opening. After that the preliminary account is converted to the real one, and you can start trading from it.

An informational email is additionally sent to you via the internal mailing system when a preliminary account is opened.

Find a Server by the Broker's Name

Another convenient new feature of MetaTrader 5 is adding brokers' servers by their names. With the previous version, you had to contact your broker to find out the IP address of the trade server or download a special client terminal. Now, you simply enter the name of the broker. The system automatically finds the server with the specified name and adds it to the list.

MetaQuotes is not a broker for live account (so any representatives are not here) - it is what I wanted to say by few posts.
