My Expert Advisor is not taking any trades

January 17, 2014

Why aren’t my Expert Advisors (EA) taking trades or executing orders?

If this an EA that has been previously working fine, please check its status in the ‘Experts’ tab in the Terminal. If the EA is trying to place trades without success it will show an error number.

Download the MT4 Error Codes list to see which error is causing your EAs to not perform properly. Also refer to the EA creator, if you have downloaded one from a third party.

If this is a new Expert Advisor, please make sure it is installed properly. Please ensure that you have followed the steps in our instructional guide on how to install them for either your PC and Mac.
