EA on multiple accounts

Leopoldo Manuel Cuellar Martinez  

Hi. I have a questions about how EAs work with VPS and multiple accounts.

1. I have one intallation of MT5 with one account with a broker under my name, and another account wwith the same broker under another name (its my brothers account).

2. I bought one EA that has 10 activations. I bought it with my mql5 account.

3.- I have set a VPS for the first account in which I have the EA running.


My question is. Can I set another VPS for the second account, and run the same EA? will it consume an activation?

An Activation will be consumed for every new account number you plug the EA to. So yes..

Thanks a lot. I'm glad to know that it can be done.

No it won't.

Activations are used per device, not account numbers.

You can use it with multiple account numbers on the same device.

Oh that's great. Can I use it in multiple Vps instances?

If its not MQL5 VPS then you need to consume activation as it is considered new machine

Oh I see, I was mistaken then. Thanks for the info.
