New article MT4TerminalSync - System for the Synchronization of MetaTrader 4 Terminals has been published:

This article is devoted to the topic "Widening possibilities of MQL4 programs by using functions of operating systems and other means of program development". The article describes an example of a program system that implements the task of the synchronization of several terminal copies based on a single source template.

Many traders and trading system developers have several copies of MetaTrader 4 terminals for technical purposes. Different charts and accounts are opened on them, different strategies are tested. Together with this from time to time new versions of the terminal are released, new indicators and Expert Advisors appear, another MQL code is written.

Sooner or later for a normal operation we face a question of synchronizing used terminal copies. For this purpose we need a technical tool able to solve this task. In this article we will view the process of creating it and finally get a ready tool.

For Whom Is The Article Intended?

The article analyzes the creation of a program system example for the synchronization of several terminal copies.

Accordingly, the article may be interesting to two categories of readers:
1. Users-traders can use the ready program system from this article.
2. Professional developers of program systems beyond MQL code may analyze this system for personal educational purposes, and perhaps give wholesome comments.

good work.

but will it not be more easy to create a simple batch file to do this work. its fast to develop, fast execution and no need of anything more then an editor and some DOS knowledges.
