Below are step by step instructions, of how to subscribe to a MΤ4 signal:

1. Register a MQL5 account: 

2. Open your MT4 platform and go to Menu >> Tools >> Optios and click on the Community tab. There you put your Login and Password of your MQL5 account and click OK.

3. Go to the search area of your MT4 platform, on the upper right corner (where the magnifying glass is), type in the name of the signal you want to subscribe and click Enter.



4. You will see lower, in the Terminal Window of your MT4 platform, the results of your search. Click on the name of the signal you want to subscribe. 



5. Click on the green Subscribe for $$ USD button on the right side of your MT4's Terminal Window.



6. Select the payment method and complete payment for your subscription.

7. In the Options >> Signals window that opens, tick the following options:



  • Agree to the terms of use of the signals service
  • Enable real time signal subscription
  • Copy Stop Loss and Take Profit levels

8. In the Use no more than: ...... of your deposit (95% maximum) field below, put the percentage of your capital, you want to participate in signal's copying.
