16. How to incorporate Expert Advisors (EAs) into the MetaTrader 

1. MetaTrader 4 terminal cannot connect to my trading account ("No connection" error). What should I do?

Possible solutions:

1. Please check your internet connection, maybe it is your Internet Service Provider's problem. Try to surf web pages which are hosted in various countries of the world. If some pages cannot be opened, contact your ISP's Technical Support.

2. Try to disable or configure your antivirus and/or firewall software that is installed on your computer, it may block some internet connections of MetaTrader 4 terminal. The internet communication port 443 should be opened and available to terminal.exe application. If opening these ports won't help, you can try to completely disable the firewall/antivirus and restart your PC.

3. If you are trading from your work PC, the office network may be configured to connect to the internet through a proxy-server. Please ask your System Administrator to provide you with the proxy server's details such as IP address, type of a proxy and port. Then you should enter this data to your MetaTrader 4 terminal ("Tools" menu > Options > Server > Enable proxy server > Proxy).

4. Please ask your System Administrator about opened and closed ports on your office network. If port 443 is closed, you won't be able to use MetaTrader 4 terminal. You can ask your System Administrator to open this port.

2. I constantly receive the "Market Closed" error when trying to open orders. What should I do?

Possible solutions:

1. The trading session on this financial instrument has not started yet. Please check the trading hours indicated in this table (click on any instrument to see further details).

2. If you are trying to buy or sell a Future Contract, please check, maybe it has expired and the trading is closed. Sometimes, 1-2 days before the expiration date, the Future Contracts can be switched to "close only" status, so no new trades could be opened. 

3. MetaTrader 4 terminal indicates the "Not enough equity" error.

If there is not enough free funds ("Free margin") available on your trading account for opening a position, you will receive such error. Please check in this table what amount of margin is required for a particular trading instrument and calculate the standard or hedged margin for all of your opened positions. If you see that there is not enough money to open a new position, you can close some of your existing positions or deposit additional funds to your trading account. Please consider these trading examples in order to understand how the margin is calculated for various trading instruments. If the base currency of your trading account is EUR, your should convert some currency values to EUR when performing your calculations. 

4. MetaTrader 4 terminal indicates that a trading context is busy.

Wait some time and try again, maybe your previous order has not been executed yet or the trading server has not received it because of some problems with your internet connection. In any case, restarting the MetaTrader 4 terminal should help in resolving the problem.

5. I can't find the full history of performed transactions in MetaTrader 4.

Please navigate to "Account history" tab in the "Terminal" window and select the "All history" option from right-click menu.

6. I want to receive a detailed statement of my trading results.

Please navigate to "Account history" tab in the "Terminal" window and select the "Save as Detailed Report" option from right-click menu.

7. What time is shown in the MetaTrader 4 terminal?

The MetaTrader4 trading platform indicates the time: GMT+2 (winter) or GMT+3 (summer).

8. "Buy Limit" or "Take Profit" order that was placed on a Sell position has not been executed, although the price on a chart has reached the order's price. Why?

Charts in MetaTrader 4 are generated using only Bid prices, but the orders for Sell positions are executed at Ask prices (you can see the both prices in MetaTrader 4 terminal, "Market Watch" window). The difference between these prices is a spread.  Please take this fact into consideration when placing your pending orders.

9. Why there is no such volume of trade as "0.1" in the MetaTrader 4 "Order" window's drop-down list?

You can manually input any volume you want, starting from 0.01 Lots and with the incremental step of 0.01 Lots. For example, you can input "0.12" or "0.03".

10. Why all of the available instruments are not displayed in "Market Watch" window of MetaTrader 4 terminal?

In order to see the full list of available instruments, please select the "Show All Symbols" option from right-click menu in "Market Watch" window. It is recommended to repeat this procedure at least once a month, because new contracts are added regularly and some expired contracts (e.g., futures) removed from the list.

16. How to incorporate Expert Advisors (EAs) into the MetaTrader

Your real account has been not activated for trading yet. In order to activate your account for trading, any sum of money should be deposited to your account (in EUR or USD currency). Demo accounts do not require activation. Contest accounts are activated automatically when the contest begins.

In general the process is the same for incorporating EAs, scripts and indicators, except for the last folder to be opened. Follow these easy steps to include any of those add-ons into your MetaTrader:

  1. Download the EA from the internet and save the file on your computer (in a place where you will easily find it again, for example on your desktop).
  2. Open the windows explorer by clicking on the windows logo in the lower left corner of your screen and then selecting ‘windows explorer’. You’ll see all your computer’s files, folders and hard disks.

  3. Select local disk C (where usually your program folder is located that contains programs like the MetaTrader. Depending on your windows version you either see the folder ‘programs’ or – if you have one of the latest windows versions – ‘programs x86’. Open the folder ‘programs x86’/‘programs’.
  4. In this folder, you will find all your programs sorted alphabetically. Find the folder ‘MetaTrader Admiral Markets AS’ and open it.
  5. To incorporate an EA, open the folder ‘experts’.

  6. Copy the downloaded EA into the folder ‘experts’ (from the desktop or the easy to remember place where you saved it to).
  7. To incorporate indicators or scripts, please select the folders ‘indicators’ or ‘scripts’ accordingly, instead of the ‘experts’ folder.
  8. You will need to close your MetaTrader, should it still be open. When restarting the MT4, you should find the new EAs in the EXPERT ADVISOR folder in the NAVIGATOR window, like the example ‘Admiral – Mini Terminal’ in the screenshot (with this particular EA, you can draw your stop-loss and take-profit as lines in the chart and modify your order by dragging the line directly, a globally exclusive and free add-on for Admiral Markets’ customers).

  9. To use the EA, just drag and drop it from the NAVIGATOR window into the selected chart. A pop-up window might open, asking you to change or confirm the standard settings. You can simply confirm the standard settings by clicking ‘OK’.
  10. You can activate and deactivate the EA. By clicking on the button ‘Expert Advisors’ in the upper menu bar you can switch EAs on and off. You can check if EAs are activated or deactivated in the chart: If the EA is active, you will see a smiley; if it is deactivated, you will see an X.

Please note that EAs are only active as long as your MetaTrader is running. If you close the MT4 or the MT4 is deactivated because of technical reasons (for example power failure), the EA is not working.

Every EA was programmed by a person or a group. Every program is only as good as its code. Through the MetaTrader platform, you can add numerous expert advisors, scripts and indicators on your own authority and without warranty by Admiral Markets. You should look to those add-ons only as assistance and support in your trading.

Because of the possibility of technical problems, errors in the coding or outdated strategies for market movements (especially if you bought EAs for automated trading from a third party), you should always monitor your trades and in case of doubt intervene manually.
