Hi, this is my 2nd question for today.

How many MT4 platforms can be allowed legally to open simultaneously on a machine (Cloud server/VPS/Dedicated server)?

Some VPS provider said that only a maximum 32 platform are allowed by Metaquotes in each server? Is it true?

Is there any solution if I want to run over 1000 platforms? 

 

Thanks and Regards,

If you are talking about MQL5 VPS/cloud to run your metatrader so this is quoted from the tutorial:

The virtual hosting service allows creating a copy of your trading platform on a remote server.
Run your trading robots and copy deals of professional signal providers on a virtual platform 24 hours a day

If you are talking about 'Sell your CPU capacity and earn money!' and to use MetaTrader 5 Strategy Tester so it is completely different story (because it is just for strategy tester and it is not for trading or not for your spread indicator on the chart for example).

I normally use about 10 at the same time, but max I did in the past was 18 platforms. I can use more but that what I need at that time.

The number of MT4 instances depends on the VPS specifications.

No man, its limited to 32 MT4 per machine.

I'm trying to subscribe a Dedicated Server with a very high specs, hoping that I could run 100 MT4 at a time, but they said the limitation is 32, and its from Metaquotes, not from them, or the machine specs.
