I do not want to foster any conspiracy theories about Forex Brokers being scams etc. but I am genuinely curious as I am testing an EA with 2 different brokers before deciding how to move fwd, so I’d like to have a second opinion.
Brief description on my case: I am currently testing an EA on 2 MT4 platforms which are released from 2 different brokers. In both platforms the EA is running on the same portfolio of crosses i.e. I have 2 terminals open and same charts open on both terminals. On each chart the same EA has been attached.
On one platform the EA is running smoothly, on the other it is giving me several issues:
- Whenever the platform is restarted (or just after the week end) the EA is reactivated on some of the crosses but not on the others
- The EA seem to be placing random SL on current and pending orders
On the other platform the EA is doing just fine so it does not seem it is an issue with the code. Could there be any issue with the broker server?
Could anybody cast some light?
