I have no idea what is wrong with my MetaTrader platform but since this weekend I have pretty much lost everything. Sunday evening I loaded up my MetaTrader to see how th emarkets were starting up the week and I got a “NO CONNECTION” in the bottom right. I figured maybe a lot of people were logging in and there was a connection issue.
Monday morning, same issue. I tried logging in with my account numbers which I actually wrote down for just an occasion, and nothing worked. I finally just opened a new demo account (it really annoys me that I lost all my other accounts), and everything was fine. I checked it last night, and still everything was fine, despite my new demo account being in the negative.
This morning, my computer was lagging, and I am not sure why. I have not downloaded anything other than MT4 on this computer is a long time. I rebooted and when I loaded my MT4, I have absolutely nothing! I have the MT4 frame, but nothing is even listed under market watch. I have nothing in my charts windows, and I still have a no connection in the bottom right. It lists two accounts which I’ve never seen before under my name, and instead of giving the servers, it’s just a bunch of ascii gibberish. I’ve tried opening a new account, and it won’t even let me do that anymore.
I have Spysweeper and Norton Anti-Virus up-to-date on my computer … and this is really annoying. I’ve gotten so excited about trading live on the forex, but now with all these problems, I guess I will just drop it!
