MT4 not opening

Question

Hi,

 

I've just made a modification to an indicator in MQL4 and then MT4 seemed to crash. I then couldn't restart it. The busy icon was wurring away but then nothing happened. I restarted my computer a few times but still nothing. Then after about 7 mins and whilst I'm typing this it has just popped up.

Any ideas what happened there? Is there a lock after a crash?

 

Thanks

@EdFuk,  try this thread for help tips, you will need to get mt4 open to delete the indicator causing the conflict.

If worst comes to the worst and you need to uninstall mt4 don't click the 'delete personal data' box, you may be able to save it, but if the problem is still present on a reinstall you will need to uninstall again and tick the box and start again after a complete wipe.

Or you could try start the metaeditor and try open data folder from there

C > program (x86) > IG Metatrader > Metaeditor

and in metaeditor click on files > open data folder > indicators

    • I am asking about maximums, especially during 5pm est, not where the live spread is, you can't practically monitor spreads by glancing at live data. Obviously these things vary by liquidity etc., and some brokers cap maximum spreads during 5pm EST on some pairs, even if they are not capped, there are often consistent maximums, so this data is extremely important. I assume by the lack of replies IG does not publish historical spread data at all, like e.g, Oanda does (https://www1.oanda.com/forex-trading/markets/recent), and Saxobank does (https://www.home.saxo/nb-no/rates-and-conditions/forex/classic-historical-fx-spreads). If that is the case, is there some spread monitor tool that can be used on the desktop or web platform? Thanks.
