How to add an EA to its Chart.
To add an Expert Advisor to its MT4 Chart, open the chart you want to trade from 'Market Watch'. (1)
In this example I have a strategy for S&P500, so open the chart of "Usa500" which is the CFD of S&P500 in ActivTrades, and I put above the chart the EA. (2)
I write in 'Symbol Name MT4' the base name of the symbol, which is 'Usa500'. (3)
To read how to insert the correct 'Symbol Name MT4' parameter check this
I got an error:
The error appears because I set 'Fixed Lots'=0.01, while the minimum lots tradable for S&P500 is 0.5.
To see from MT4 that the minimum lots tradable is 0.5, go to 'Market Watch' => right-click 'Usa500' => click 'Specification' => read 'Minimal volume'.
So I change 'MM Value' to 0.5.
Now it works.
To be sure that everything is ok, check in the upper-right of the Chart. If there is a :) smiley face the EA is active and it will start trading.
Save the Templates
Is possible to save the configuration in a Template, that can be loaded in the EA instead of writing input parameters.
Repeat the procedure for each EA you have
Repeat the procedure for each EA you have.
Next we will make available a system to manage the EAs and to automatize most of the set-up time.
