Hello,

I have subscribed to a Signal.

The subscription has replicated onto my system ALL open positions of the signal provider.

This is something very BAD to my opinion.

So, here comes my question:

HOW do I configure Signal Subscription in order to be allowed to close some of the positions myself, and make sure they do not get RE-OPENED automatically


Thanks in advance

It is not recommended to close the position by yourself. All the position should be managed from the signal provide side.

By the way - you can disable the subscription on your side without unsubscribing:

It is not advisable to begin copying a signal with open positions - wait for the signal to close all positions and then synchronize with it

- and after that - close the positions you want, and wait when the signal provide will close all his open position, and enable the subscription once again.

It' is exactly what is suppose to happen.

Maybe you do not understand the concept of signals.

1. I am not using a VPS. I have a computer that is always on. - Is that a problem ?


2. What I want signaling to do  is:  to replicate all NEW signal from the provider's side


Any help is greatly appreciated

First you should start copying the signal at a point that there are no open positions.

So, wait for such a time and then start your subscription.

Using a VPS is a must, because you will avoid power and internet failure problems.

You can never be sure that your computer and your home internet will always be on.

Also you will have a much better ping (connection speed) through a VPS.

One more question:


Is there a way to close some of the subscribed transactions AND make sure that they will NOT be re-opened ?

No, as long as you keep your account synchronized with the signal provider all the active positions will keep re-opening if you close them manually.

That's the whole idea of subscribing to a signal. If you think that you can do a better job than the signal provider, what is the point of subscribing in the first place?

OK, Thank you very much for clarifying this
