Calculator for signals MT5

The calculator of signals operates directly from the MetaTrader 5 terminal, which is a serious advantage, since the terminal provides a preliminary selection and sorts out signals. This way, users can see in the terminal only the signals that ensure a maximum compatibility with their trading accounts.

The calculator of signals gives the answer to the one of the questions most frequently asked by users of the Signals service: "Will I be able to subscribe to the signal NNN, and what volume of the position will be copied to my trading account?"

More details on the operation and mechanisms of the utility can be found in the article of the same name Calculator of signals.

Attention! The panel of the utility has a size of 980*456 - make the chart window as large as possible before using the utility.
