  1. An Ex4/EX5 is not an executable, and DLL calls are prohibited, so no. What data? Only that which the terminal provides.
  2. Rules for copy trading in MetaTrader 4 and 5 - the Trading Signals service Part IV
    All Subscription parameters shall be specified in the MetaTrader terminal settings:
    • permission to copy Stop Loss and Take Profit levels,
    • percentage of equity in the trading account to be used for execution of buy/sell trades based on the trade volumes of the Signals Source,
    • allowable difference between the execution price and the price of the trade copied from the Signals Source within which Trading Signals will be implemented,
    • minimum value of equity in the trading account at which the implementation of Trading Signals will stop and all positions will be closed.
