Questions about following signals with different currency name

It should work with no problem:
The Provider has trading symbol called GOLD, and my broker has the same instrument, but it is called XAUUSD. Are trades on GOLD copied to XAUUSD in that case?
The algorithm provides only two exceptions for metal symbols:
In these two cases, only full permission to perform trades is checked. If such permission is present, the mapping attempt is considered to be successful.
Example 1: A Provider has positions on EURUSD, while a Subscriber – on EURUSD! (or vice versa) with full trading permission. The terminal performs mapping automatically and copies the trades.
Example 2: A Provider has positions on EURUSD, while a Subscriber – both on EURUSD! and EURUSD. The copying is performed for EURUSD.
Example 3: A Provider has positions on GOLD, while a Subscriber – on XAUUSD with full trading permission. The terminal performs mapping automatically and copies the trades.
Example 4: A Provider has positions on GOLD, while a Subscriber – on XAUUSD with close-only (partial) trading permission. The mapping is considered unsuccessful and no copying is performed.
Thx for info Sergey. I searched this info earlier and double checked my settings. The signal provider has same signal on mt4. How can I get a refund so I can move to his mt4 signal?
This is nothing to do with the settings.It is about the broker which is different from the signal provider's broker. Or it is the settings of the broker which is estimated proposed symbol as "non-forex symbol".You can move this subscription to the other trading account, but within MT5, or within MT4 platform (not from MT5 to MT4 for example).As to refund so there is one rule here:

If you unsubscribe within 24 hours of your initial subscription, you will get an automatic full refund.
I tried the same broker and another broker. I haven't had any problem with other signals. Thx for the assistance.
For example, I opened XAU/USD chart and attach this script (for MT5, but there is same script for MT4 too):
It means that if I subscribe to the signal trading Gold (or XAU/USD) so I will not get any trade because of the following:
