Follow these instructions to setup the master EA that will send trades signals to the copier or slave EAs. READ CAREFULLY!



Before you can start using the sender EA, following pre-requisites must be met. Without these, the setup will not work.

  • Get a forex VPS from a trusted windows VPS provider with static IP address. THIS IS MUST. Without this the setup will NOT work. Identify a free port that can be used for fast trade copying tunnel creation. This is any 4-5 digit number. Just make sure this port number is not already in use AND the port is enabled for inbound traffic in the Windows Defender Firewall.
  • Approve the copiers with their account numbers in the members area by going to "Manage copiers" link. Here add the userid and account number of the copier you want to approve.
  • Make sure your copiers know the IP address and port number that you are planning to use for fast and reliable copying. This is needed for the EAs on both sides to open a fast trade copy tunnel between the two MT4 instances.

Setup steps

Once you have completed the pre-requisites, follow these simple steps to setup the trade sender EA on your MT4 running on your VPS.

  • Download the EA zip file from the members area under the "Download EAs" section. Save and extract the EA file (EX4 file) on your computer. Save the EA file in the "Experts" folder in your MT4.
  • Open any chart (any timeframe is fine) in your MT4 instance and add the EX4 file onto it. Make sure allow DLL imports is enabled on your MT4. Whether auto-trade is enabled or not, does not matter for this EA to work.
  • Make sure you see the connection successful message. If you have any questions, contact the master trade for help.
