The problem I am having is that I cannot...
Hello, I've migrated an EA to VPS. I'd like to migrate another EA to VPS, but I am not sure, if I should migrate just new EA, or both. So the question is: If I migrate the environment, is the previous migration overwritten? I could not find how this part works. Thank you in advance. Martin

This EA is generating the error of the image below when placing a buy or sell order, probably because the EA is trying to place a take profit order and stop loss order in the digits that are not accepted, because of the image I see that it does not position TP and SL in the last digits with end 0 or...
