Two mt4 accounts is not enough



I have about 50 EAS (expert advisors) going on live accounts, I G provide only 2 MT4 spread betting accounts per customer.

The future is automation, so I G should start providing more MT4 accounts per customer.


Here is an example of just 1 Expert advisor on a live account.It occupies the whole account.


Maybe I have to open accounts with other brokers.running out of mt4  accounts.jpg

At this point there is a limit to the amount of MT4 accounts you can open, however I will be sure to pass your feedback on to the relevant team. What I would recommend you look into is using the ‘Magic numbers’ function in MT4. This way you can get multiple EA’s to run on the same market if needed (you will need to open more than one chart). When you use the magic number function you code in the EA to only trade and manage trades that have a specific magic number. There are many ways of doing this but I would suggest looking at the Metaquotes forum as there are a number of articles going through this and what can be done.


We don't provide any coding advice but the MetaQuotes forum may be worth a browse.

Hi  James 


It would help if you could pass this on , because these 50 eas are only going on two instruments.It will be a problem if I start using them on 5 other instruments.


Magic numbers are applied to different EAS to separate the ea systems from each other.They separate ea systems, but if you have 50 robots , one can put several robots on each ea  with magic numbers , but it can cause issues.


The main problem is , many trades open on same account  can cause , too much trading information on one account.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
