By reading on a topic in this forum and doing some reasearch in the MQL5.com signal list, I've realized that cent account signals are not rated and not included on the MQL5.com signal list (by rating, profit, subcribers, or any other factor) anymore.
Is this a new policy from MQL5.com?
I guess so.
Cent accounts are for practice trading.
Maybe the majority of accounts that go bust were cent account. Not sure.
But the signal provider should have some risk in it too because it creates responsibility.
The cent account $10 signal to subscribers with pro account 100k+ $$$ funds just doesn't seem logical.
Also the cent account is $10 the subscription fee $30 doesn't seem right.
We do not know yet.I just see the thread about it in rus part of the forum: Free Cent Signal (but it is just a talking as no admin replied).I think - the service desk may clarify the situation (after vacation for example).
I just saw another top (in terms of subscribers and former rating) signal based on a cent account, that has a FREE label on its subscribe button, so must be official then.
There is no 'cent' word in the rules page ( https://www.mql5.com/en/signals/rules )
And we know any cent accounts are not free and they must categorized and treat as real account !
And I see the last post on that thread -

Free Cent Signal

An ordinary bug. Those that did not depreciate, they disappeared from the rating.
The service desk may explain (bug or new policy for example)
they should decide that on the new signals >>> what about the old signals ??!!
I tired to get this rating for 6 months
I think it is better to put more strict regulations:
1. Prohibit cent account;
2. Each Signal account must initially deposit at least $100 and always remain on this number;
3. Prohibit open accounts at less reputable Brokers such as <>, <>,...
4. Eliminate fraudulent accounts such as profit orders then withdraw money and then close orders to increase % profit
5. Accounts must be public for at least 4 weeks to be subscribed
6. Specifies the maximum drawdown, for example 50%, if any signals that reach this level is closed....
Mql5 must do these things to bring credibility to the subscribers.
I remember in early 2017 the top signals had thousands of subscribers, but now the number is only a few hundred. These subsribers have lost confidence in the deception of many signal providers
I have already suggested most of the above proposals to the Service Desk, along with one that will make in my opinion the signal system more safe and honest for potential subscribers:
Not to allow signals that haven't been connected to MQL5.com signal database from the very beginning.
