I searched for signals that are compatible with my platform (metatrader 4), and I chose a FREE one to try out on my demo account.
I did everything according to the instructions to subscribe to this signal, but when I am entering my confirmation password of mql5, after clicking on subscribe, my "OK" button is not clickable.
I have attached an image to show the button. Not sure why I can't click on it...
I tried this for multiple different free signals, but all has this problem.
Why is this?
Any possibly solution would be much appreciated, thanks.
I think you will find that it is now no longer possible to hook up a "real" signal to a demo account and vice versa. It's always been against the rules but you could still do it. I think they now totally prevent it from happening.
Paragraph IV, item 11
> In the client terminal's showcase, a real account can only subscribe to Signals from real accounts and a demo account can only subscribe to Signals from demo accounts.

THanks for the tips, but I tried adding signals from demo accounts, and the same thing happens. I cannot click on the OK button after putting in my mql5 password...
Really strange. There must be something that I am missing here..
Oh and one more thing, make sure that you are logged in to the community in the MT terminal:
I also had some problems and I finally found out that my password was wrong... stupid thing!
Check the log messages in the tab "Journal" in order to double check that you are successfully logged in your MQL5.Community account. You should see a message line with something similar to:
2014.10.06 22:10:52.187 MQL5.community: activated for 'yourLoginName', balance: 0.00
where "yourLoginName" is your MQL5.Community login name.
