I just see one good post made by moderator of russian part of the forum with the public permission of MQ. This post is here. I am recommending to the users to read it with online translation.
Just for information.
How to Post a Product in the Market
service offers unique opportunities for developers of analytical
systems and trading robots - now your programs go directly to traders'
terminals and are available to all MetaTrader 5
users. This means that with the status of the Seller, you can access
the large market of potential customers, and the simple technology will
help your MQL5 program become a mass product.
A program can be purchased only from
the MetaTrader 5 Client Terminal. Each MQL5 program is strictly linked
to a computer and must undergo activation. For example, when buying a
trading robot, its special copy is generated, which will work only on
the associated computer. Even having this file, an intruder cannot run
the program on another computer. This solution helps to protect the
interests of developers and their customers.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Signals service

Does the MetaTrader 4/5 terminal has to be running at Subscriber's end for trades to be copied?
Two methods are provided for copying transactions from the Provider's account:
can be copied directly in the Subscriber's terminal which must be
running and connected to the relevant account. This option requires
absolute operation of the terminal.
can be copied at the trade server side of the broker using TET (Trust
Execution Token) mode. In this case the Subscriber does not even need to
have the Terminal running. Trades will be copied directly at the trade
server's end, allowing you to avoid possible network latency and
improving the quality of Signal execution. At the moment, TET mode is
not yet available.
Is the TET mode available now???
If not does this mean that the computer has to be on in order to copier and receive trades that are copied into a receiver account?
Also will this require VPS if the computer is turned off?
and many more users asked about TET. So, this is the information from now :

Для информации: мы сами построили свою облачную самобалансирующую сеть серверов по всему миру для сервиса сигналов. Сейчас там точки в Нью Йорке, Далласе, Лондоне, Амстердаме, Франкфурте, Москве, Гонконге, Шанхае и Сингапуре.
Эта сеть кардинально снижает латенси на коннектах к брокерским серверам вплоть до 1 мс. Сейчас она работает в режиме персональных клиентских терминалов и обслуживает сервис сигналов. Скоро включим у нее режим Trusted Execution Token, что позволит исполнение перенести близко к серверам брокеров.
Автоматическая балансировка работает для тысяч MetaTrader серверов брокеров, что означает - каждый сигнальный провайдер располагается как можно ближе к своему брокеру.
For information: we have built a network of self-balancing cloud servers worldwide for service signals . Now there are points in New York, Dallas, London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Moscow, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore.
This dramatically reduces network latensi to connect to broker servers
down to 1 ms. Now network works in a mode of personal client terminals and
serves service signals. Soon it will be included Trusted Execution
Token mode, which will move execution to be close to the performance of the broker server.
can't signal sign on the terminal, anyone can help?

Contact your Broker, not all Brokers offer signals on MT4

Margin Call (adapted from dailyfx.com article)
To get a grasp on what a margin call is, you should understand the
purpose and use of Margin & Leverage. Margin & Leverage are two
sides of the same coin. The purpose of either is to help you control a
contract larger than your account balance. Simply put, margin is the
amount required to hold the trade open. Leverage is the multiple of
exposure to account equity. Therefore, if you have an account with a
value of $10,000 but you would like to buy a 100,000 contract for
EURUSD, you would be required to put up $800 for margin in an account
leaving $9,200 in usable margin. Usable Margin should be seen as a
safety net and you should protect your usable margin at all costs.Causes of a Margin Call
To understand the cause of a margin call is the first step. The second
and more beneficial step is learning understanding how to stay far away
from a potential margin call. The short answer as to understand what
causes a margin call is simple, you’ve run out of usable margin.The second and promised more beneficial step is to understand what
depletes your usable margin and stay away from those activities. In risk
of oversimplifying the causes, here are the top causes for margin calls
which you should avoid like the plague (presented in no specific
What Happens When A Margin Call Takes Place?
When a margin call takes place, you are liquidated or closed out of your
trades. The purpose is two-fold: you no longer have the money in your
account to hold the losing positions and the broker is now on the line
for your losses which is equally bad for the broker.
How to Avoid Margin Calls
Leverage is often and fittingly referred to as a double-edged sword. The
purpose of that statement is that the larger leverage you use to hold a
trade greater than some large multiple of your account, the less usable
margin you have to absorb any losses. The sword only cuts deeper if an
over-leveraged trade goes against you as the gains can quickly deplete
your account and when your usable margin % hits, zero, you will receive a
margin call. This only gives further credence to the reason of using
protective stops while cutting your losses as short as possible.
