Has any one had a problem this evening with metatrader 4

I have 3 large trades on and they were doing well, then all of a sudden it just went all over the shop and I couldn't do anything with it.

I have now opened it up on my desktop and the trades I have on are have all lost money totalling nearly £2000.00

I am going to have to stay up all night now to try and salvage things

You are trying to copy a signal that doesn't trade following the FIFO (first in first out) rule with an account that obbeys that rule, so its not strange that doesn't work.

Open a new account that doesn't follow the FIFO rule or chose a FIFO signal to copy.

The first open must close first as required by law rules.

Not with a US broker. Since 2009, hedging is not permitted for US traders.
