MT5 Signals Can't access?

 

Hello, for some reason the signals button in the MT5 terminal is grayed out. I haven't had a problem with MT4 but for some reason I don't have a community button in Options to make changes and activate signals in MT5.

  • Make sure that your Windows 10 is on 64 bit (because 32 bit Windows is not supported by MT5 anymore), and that you are using the latest MT5 build.
  • Connect to the trading account (or create demo account with any broker).
  • And fill Community tab of Metatrader with your forum login and forum password; your forum login is scootrade2; do not use your email to login; and do not use google/facebook related password.

How to know about Windows version - 64 bit or 32 bit?
Use the following procedure (if it is written as "Metatrader 5 x64 build 2990" for example so it is fine):

If you have a question, first of all you should show the first three lines from the 'Journal' tab


(select these lines, copy to the clipboard and paste into the message using the button Code). It should look like this:

2021.03.16 05:13:07.133 Terminal        MetaTrader 5 x64 build 2832 started for MetaQuotes Software Corp.
2021.03.16 05:13:07.134 Terminal        Windows 10 build 19042, Intel Core i7-9750H  @ 2.60GHz, 26 / 31 Gb memory, 842 / 947 Gb disk, IE 11, UAC, GMT+2

I have the same issue. My signals tab is not accessible. 

I have the 64bit Windows, the latest version and are logged-in.

What could be other problems?

Kind regards

Have you checked all three from above:

  • Make sure that your Windows 10 is on 64 bit (because 32 bit Windows is not supported by MT5 anymore), and that you are using the latest MT5 build.
  • Connect to the trading account (or create demo account with any broker).
  • And fill Community tab of Metatrader with your forum login and forum password; your forum login is scootrade2; do not use your email to login; and do not use google/facebook related password.

If you are facing same problem so it may be for the following reasons:

  • you did not fill Community tab of Metatrader with your forum login and forum password, and with confirmation of sucessful login in Metatrader journal;
    or
  • you connect your Metatrader to demo/cents/any trading account other than real trading account (the signal service works for real accounts only for now.
