Running MT4 on Virtual Machine (cloud).

You upload and set everything in your local computer (load EA, put your settings and click Auto Trading button) and then you synchronize your MT4 environment with the VPS.
You don't get to see visually the computer environment of your VPS solution.
And the general reminder about How to subscribe to VPS:
missing signal trades

Hello Nashy, below are the steps for implementing MQL5 integrated VPS:
1. Go to your account details in the Navigator window of your MT4 platform, right click in your account number or name and select the option Register a Virtual Server.
2. In the Virtual Hosting Wizard window that opens, the VPS with the lower Ping, ms value is presented automatically.
3. Select your payment plan for 1, 3, 6 or 12 months and click Next.
4. Tick the: I agree to the virtual hosting service rules and the auto renewal option below (if you want) and click Next.
5. Complete your payment for the VPS Service.
6. In the next window, tick the Migrate signal: account and settings option, click End and you are done.
Thanks. I have just tried the following process. (I noticed the Chart TimeFrame that my EA was running on was incorrect).
1/ Pressing the correct TF (on what I see on my PC) after *Migrating* doesn't change anything. (However, I notice I can close trades).
2/ I setup a new Chart with EA & correct TF setups. Deleted old Chart at VPS ---- then pressed *Sychronise* and my new chart & setup joined the VPS.
3/ I also right-clicked *Stop Server* on the nevigator tab ---- however, not sure that was required.
You should set everything up in your Metatrader and press to synchronize ... that's all ... and any time you are making the changes (or you are not sure about) - synchronize your 'home Metatrader' with VPS.

Custom Walk Forward optimization in MetaTrader 5
Algorithmic trading consists not only of planning and development of trading robots but also (to a greater extent) testing and verifying the survivability of ideas and algorithms implemented in them. MetaTrader 5 provides the built-in tester for optimizing Expert Advisors on historical data. This tool is often indispensable in everyday activity. However, its main issue is the search for parameters that remain steadily profitable over time beyond the period the optimization was performed on. One of the possible solutions is forward testing. The tester features the appropriatebuilt-in mode. But is it enough to optimize the EA once and successfully check it on a subsequent period to ensure its reliability?
The EA's operation cycle implies that the optimization and trade stages are repeated from time to time with the chosen frequency, and traders expect positive (or at least loss-free) results over a long period of time. To ensure the system's efficiency, it is necessary to repeat the cycle stages many times in the tester launching optimization and forward testing with a constant shift of the current period from the past to the virtual future.
This is called thewalk forward optimizationand widely used by many traders. Unfortunately, the built-in MetaTrader tester does not allow launching it at the touch of a button. Instead, we have to automate the tester launch using external tools and stick forward test reports together. Therefore, there is a need to execute a walk forward analysis in a simpler way solely by means of MetaTrader and MQL with no routine operations.
As it tuns out, we are able to develop an MQL library that can be easily connected to any EA if necessary. You will need some programming skills since we are going to adapt the EA source code.

How to Start with Metatrader 5

It may be interesting for the coders especially if they are planning to place something to the Market for example:
Including resources to executable files during compilation of mql5 programs
An mql5 program may need a lot of different downloadable resources in the form of image and sound files. In order to eliminate the need to transfer all these files when moving an executable file in MQL5, the compiler's directive #resource hould be used:
The #resource command tells the compiler that the resource at the specified pathpath_to_resource_fileshould be included into the executable EX5 file. Thus all the necessary images and sounds can be located directly in an EX5 file, so that there is no need to transfer separately the files used in it, if you want to run the program on a different terminal. Any EX5 file can contain resources, and any EX5 program can use resources from another EX5 program.
The files in format BMP and WAV are automatically compressed before including them to an EX5 file. This denotes that in addition to the creation of complete programs in MQL5, using resources also allows to reduce the total size of necessary files when using graphics and sounds, as compared to the usual way of MQL5 program writing.
The resource file size must not exceed 128 Mb.
A resource is inserted using the command #resource "<path to the resource file>"
The compiler searches for a resource at the specified path in the following order:The length of the constant string <path_to_resource_file> must not exceed 63 characters.
The resource path cannot contain the substrings "..\\" and ":\\".
Examples of resource inclusion:
//--- correct specification of resources
#resource "\\Images\\euro.bmp" // euro.bmp is located in terminal_data_directory\MQL5\Images\
#resource "picture.bmp" // picture.bmp is located in the same directory as the source file
#resource "Resource\\map.bmp" // the resource is located in source_file_directory\Resource\map.bmp
//--- incorrect specification of resources
#resource ":picture_2.bmp" // must not contain ":"
#resource "..\\picture_3.bmp" // must not contain ".."
#resource "\\Files\\Images\\Folder_First\\My_panel\\Labels\\too_long_path.bmp" //more than 63 symbols
J'ai essayé de créer ce film pour m'aider à moi-même et à d'autres pour commencer avec Metatrader 5. Je suis expérimenté en MT4 et en forex en général (j'espère :) mais nous, les commerçants, devons vraiment collecter Toutes les informations sur ce sujet en un seul endroit. Je ferai quelques publications sur «Commentaire je commence par MT5». :)
Mettez votre question sur Metatrader 5 et je vais essayer de votre réponse, ou nous répondrons tous ensemble.
