I'm subscribed to a signal that has opened 21 trades, all but 3 are losing. How can I stop any new trades from being opened by the signal but let the open trades run their course?

This is because it is a synchronization service, not a trade alert system.
It would actually be great if MetaQuotes added an option to close a trade and not have it resynchronized as I know there's many signal subscribers that would like to be able to do that, given this question is asked frequently and many people misunderstand how it actually works, only to have manually closed trades reopened as soon as they've left their computer.
