You have default MT4 right? Maybe the problem is this one: News - MetaQuotes Software Corp.

Uninstall and install some broker platform.

Several MT4s

Hi. Please tell me how can i open more than one MT4 platform on the same computer. I want to run more than one EAs on my home computer, but i want them to be on different accounts and to be constantly ON, so i guess i need to have more than one platform opened.

that seems logical. thanks for the proposed sollution to the problem . on the website of my broekr i found another program available for download next to the normal mt4. it's called mt4 multi terminal and they say you can use it to access multiple accounts at the same time. what can you say abou that ? should i try it or is it a waste of time?

EA's won't trade

I had some EA's made but they won't fire on the demo platform. I am using MT4. I tried a fresh load of MT4 and still nothing. They fire with the strategy tester (though not well). Trailing stops don't seem to fire right either. They take forever to kick in if at all. I am attaching screenshots of the global settings and EA setting along with one of the EA's. I have a feeling I am doing something wrong but can't figure it out.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thank you

Joseph

Spread adjustments on stop loss and take profit

When entering an order, must I adjust for the spread when entering the stop loss and take profit figures? In other words, if the spread is 4 pips on a short and I wish to take profit when the big hits 1.4010, do I enter 1.4010 or 1.4006 to enter at the correct price?

Also, is an adjustment to be made on the stop loss?

Thank you for your help.
