MQL5 VPS Setup

David Swann  

I know there is a lot of material on this subject but I cannot find clear and concise instructions. Am I correct that I should

download an instance of MT4 or MT5 onto my home PC and set it up for the broker account I want to use?

Then rent the MQL5 VPS?

Do I synchronize now? Will I get instructions on synchronization?

Do I place EA's, signals on my PC terminal before or after synchronization?
