I want to copy a signal in MT4 and I found one signal that suits me. When I want to copy it, the pop-up window gives me the MT5 link to download. All of my accounts are in MT4. What is the problem?

Can't I copy a signal in MT4? What about the Metatraders I already have on my computer? 

I tried to copy a signal from inside the MT4 in signal section. First, I couldn't find the signal I found on MQL5 website. But even when I chose another one, I can't connect my PayPal account to MT4. I tried many times but no success.

If you have any experience with buying and copying signals, would you tell me what and how to do it?
