I have just downloaded and installed the MQL5 platform. I have logged into my FOREX account, but the platform will not allow me to do anything, no live data is being displayed, and no trades are possible.
Can anyone help?
If it is related to your trading account with some broker so - ask the broker about how to login.

Problem with taking a new order

Check the pairs that are availble for trading, you maybe have to add some in order to be able to "trade".
Go to: View >> Symbols of your MT platform and add those that are not greyed.
If the problem persists, try to open a new demo account with another server.
Are you sure that you have logged into your account with the master and not the investor password, the first gives you full access on your account, the second only monitoring privileges.
