Hi there,

Does anyone here ever experience this?

I noticed that during high activity times during NY session, MT4 kind of lags and stutters.

My computer is actually very powerful and I don´t have lots of indicator going on.

Is there any way to improve this?

That's normal, given the large number of ticks coming in.

The actual number of indicators doesn't matter, what matters is how efficient each of them run. The number of open charts also play a part.

Some indicators recompute all bars per tick.
  1. Fix them

  2. or reduce Tools → Options (control-O) → Charts → Max bars in chart to something reasonable (like 1K.)

Ensure you have a sensible number of symbols "Market Watch" window

"Show All" will cause the terminal to get ticks for every symbol your broker supports which may lead to significant performance issues

Right click "Hide All" will reduce the list to the ones currently open in your terminal
