you can try running MT4 on RAMDISK and on processes, u can make higher priority to high on terminal.exetraderokey wrote: ↑Tue Nov 10, 2020 11:23 pmHi Xard,
Please which broker do you use or recommend?
I remember you said that you often use mental stop losses and watch over your trades, so you can close them manually. But there are brokers who may play tricks with their servers especially during high volume/news period. MT4 platform freezes at that point and there is no opportunity to come out of the trade.
I'm going through official complaint with my current broker Blueberry Markets. They seemed a good bunch although with very high spreads. But recently my MT4 started freezing more often, with the worst case occuring around 13:44pm yesterday where I couldn't close my multiple gold trades which were in good profits until the market reversed and still I didn't have access until I got cleaned out. I immediately got in contact with them on chat complaining all the way, not knowing what to do and all they said is that I should close the MT4 terminal, reopen it, uninstall and re-install MT4 while the account damage is being done.
I don't know if recommending your broker is against the rules of this forum but I'd appreciate if you can help me out. Anyone who uses a mental stop loss or has a broker where the MT4 platform is stable could also let me know.
Just in case anyone is wondering, I have a 32GB RAM super workstation and very good internet connection which have been working okay all along.
edit: also u can reduce max bars on MT4 to 5000, and monitor trades on MT4 on mobile, u can close possitions here too, if that higher priority and ramdisk dont work, then u can try linux mint, Xard is trading on linux mint 18.1 IIRC with ramdisk and he said that MT4 running better on linux then on windows using Wine
