Can anyone assist me patiently and kindly? I' am new to Forex and basically just learned the pips thing, not even that well!

I've just opened an account with Blueberry Markets and using their MT4 Platform for Demo but want to add their EA (algorithm auto trader) on to my Demo account so I can see if i can trade with an EA as I'm very clueless in forex... :o(

No differences.
Because is the the general information which is valid for MT4 and for MT5.

But I can't see anything you show in your screen shots above on my demo account? I do the drop down on "File" and theres nothing that you see on your screen shot there?
Do i have to download MT4 even though I'm on a demo site?

Do you have Metatrader 4 (you are talking about Metatrader 4, right?) installed on your computer?

Because you are going to install EA on Metatrader, and it is nothing to do with your demo or real account.

  • Install EA on Metatrader, and after that -
  • connect Metatrader to your account (to your demo account for example).

----------------


In Metatrader:

  1. File -
  2. Open Data Folder -
  3. find Expert folder and
  4. place your EA there.
  5. After that - compile EA in MetaEditor (because Metatrader is not using the source codes; Metatrader is using compiled files such as ex4 for MT4 and ex5 for MT5).
  6. Open the chart and attach EA to the chart;
  7. change autotrading to be ON (read post about autotrading).

----------------

for more - read the manuals:

Hi Sergy, Apologies for delay.  I have still had no luck. I have opened MT4 gone to where you have shown but it doesnt allow me to "copy& paste" robot file over?
