"Doesn't work" is meaningless - just like saying the car doesn't work. Doesn't start, won't go in gear, no electrical, missing the key, flat tires - meaningless. There are no mind readers here.

Well... I want to place an order in Metatrader ...

1. I should check - did I connect Metatrader to my trading account? seems - yes:


2. Did I connect Metatrader to internet? yes, I did -


3. I want to open an order on EUR/USD, does this pair exist on my account? Yes:

4. Check the specification for this pair/symbol and minimum lot size: does this broker allow me to trade it with 0.01 lot sdize? Yes, I can trade this pair by openning 0.01 as a minimum lot size:



5. After that - New Order (F9), and open sell or buy trade (or pending order for example).

----------------

If any error - go to the Journal to check the log:

Seems, no error.

restart Metatrader, and check everything according to my previous post (the post with images).

As far as I understand - "common error" means the following: the connection Metatrader with the broker's server (or your internet connection) is not good ... so - you can try one more time to open the trade (a little later).

Make sure you have enabled trading for your account, contact your broker about it.
