Hi,

I subscribed to the signal "one percent per days" in MT5 [link to the signal was deleted by moderator]

I have a different broker than the signal provider. I have ICMarkets, the signal provider has XM. The instrument that the signal provider is trading is called "US30Cash" which is the equivalent of "US30" in my MT4 with ICM.

The terminal therefore gives me the error message "deal #xxxxx buy YYY US30Cash at XXXXXX skipped as no symbol found".

How can I map my instrument "US30" to the signal providers instrument "US30Cash"?

thanks for any help in advance.

Signal Symbols not mapping

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 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?

    If a Subscriber's account has a symbol with the same name as the one on the Provider's account, and trading is fully allowed for the symbol, trades will be copied for this symbol. If trading is allowed partially or disabled for the found symbol, this symbol is considered inappropriate for copying, and the system will continue to search for a suitable symbol:

    1. On the Subscriber's account, the system searches for all symbols with the names coinciding with the Provider's symbol by the first 6 characters. For example, EURUSD == EURUSDxxx == EURUSDyyy.
    2. Full permission to perform trading is checked for each detected symbol. If trading is allowed partially or completely forbidden, such a symbol is discarded.
    3. Margin calculation type is checked for each remaining symbol - if it is Forex, a symbol is considered to be suitable. Symbols of CFD, Futures or other calculation types are discarded.
    4. If no symbols remain after conducting all the checks or more than one symbol is found, it is considered that a symbol mapping attempt has failed and it is impossible to copy Provider's trades for that symbol.
    5. If one suitable symbol is found, it is used for copying Provider's trades.

    The algorithm provides only two exceptions for metal symbols:

    1. XAUUSD == GOLD
    2. XAGUSD == SILVER

    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.

If it is custom indicator so look at the log files (during the attaching this indicator to the chart) - so see the issue/error/number of error/any (so, at least, you will know about what was happened) -

This is indicator from the Market?

  • If yes so I found one post with reply (related to the almost same issue): post #448 (if it is free indicator so delete it and install it once again using this post  #692 and this thread as the examples);
  • if it does not work (or if it is not free Market indicator) - ask the author of this indicator for assistance.

PayPal withdrawal does not work.

MetaQuotes Software Corp. , 2019.08.27 12:37

Since August, we have been carrying out legal reorganization and changing payment details.

Therefore, there is a shutdown of old systems and the launch of new ones. This is a very complicated process. Most likely, in the first days of September, most of the work will be completed.

Sorry for the inconvenience, please.

Hello!

After Windows 10 update 1903 (18362.295) I cannot login via my MT5 into my account, I got: MQL5.community: authorization failed

I can login on the mql5.com website, but via my MT5 terminal I cannot and got the auth failed error.

It is 100% sure that I wrote the user/pw correctly.

What can I do?!
