Hi, i have login on 2 different broker in MT4. one broker symbol is not using a quote and other is using quote 
IE : 

XAUUSD'

vs

XAUUSD

I wonder what is the difference between these 2 of them.

I also noticed when we are adding symbol. their root for us to choose is kind of different. please see attached photos for comparison

Thank you

You will have to ask them.

Broker's use a variety of naming patterns: EURUSD, EURUSDc, EURUSDcheck, EURUSDct, EURUSDecn, EURUSDf, EURUSDi, EURUSDm, EURUSDme, EURUSDpro, EURUSDt, “EUR.USD”, “EUR/USD”, “EURUSD!”, “EURUSD#”, “EURUSD..”, “EURUSD.”, “EURUSD.c”, “EURUSD.cfx”, “EURUSD.G”, “EURUSD.i”, “EURUSD.r”, “EURUSD.SBe”, “EURUSD.stp”, “EURUSD'”, “EURUSD@”, “EURUSD_i”, “EURUSD-5”, “EURUSD-g”, “EURUSD-m”, “EURUSD-sb”, etc., “#FB”, “#TSLA”, and Financial symbols with “-”, “=”, “_”, and “+”

If the pattern your broker uses doesn't match the pattern of your signal provider's broker, you can't copy the signal/open a trade. Switch brokers to one that has that adornment.

If the naming pattern of your charts isn't exactly “BasQuo” then hard coded symbols fails. Don't hard code things; just use the predefined _Symbol, or add/remove the adornments during processing.

Rudi   I to wondered about the different symbol names. To be honest I use what they have and do a check on another platform for say 5 minutes to make sure price data is correct.

In Australia we have new laws on leverage so we have virtually a new set of symbols.

Hope this helps
