MT4 Upgrade?

Question

MT4 seems to have been upgraded at some stage though still the same Build 1170 I found that if you download mt4 now the file size is twice the size of the one I had, also the apps pack file is bigger and now has the Excel RTD (real time data) App.

MT4 itself looks the same but seems more stable, there used to be occasional fraction of a second dropouts that were only noticed because of the sound alarm but not getting any now, there are obvious extras are in the app pack, I haven't look through them properly but did notice some nice changes.

There are additional features on the mini terminal but they are not working properly and are causing the interface to freeze on the live platform (perhaps you could pass this on @JamesIG), the new price ladder allows orders to be placed directly onto chart and the new 'maxi' mode also looks good but changing the input values or even changing the vertical price scale will freeze the mini terminal and the only way to fix is to delete the chart and redo. The mini terminal works fine (as it always did) if the new features are not enabled.

Also as noted in another thread Autochartist seems to have gone? @Archeon.

I found this link below to educational videos for the apps was very helpful (produce by another broker so may not be exactly the same as IG)

More history (data) on the sentiment would be interesting

update on the gremlins in the new mt4 maxi mode in the mini terminal app, it seems fine if changing volume (lot size) using the new drop down tab inputs but if changing via the top numbers screen, not freezing now but rather just shuts down mt4 altogether. @JamesIG

Hi @JamesIG, could you pass this on to tech, (mini terminal 'Maxi' mode Live Account);

- change lot size in top box = platform shutdown.

- press LDR (ladder)  = mini terminal freeze.

- change vertical price scale with open trade = on chart labels get stuck and mini terminal freeze.

 

love the look of the thing though 🙂

Hey casey - I've passed this on to @TimP who is reaching out directly to those who own the plugin. I don't think we've had other reports outside this thread so it does seem a strange one and not related to MT4 specifically. 

I imagine I know the answer, but would you like a call RE: basic troubleshooting on MT4?

Thanks @JamesIG,  I'm not having any trouble with mt4 at all, it's working fine and so is the mini terminal so long as those two new features are not enabled. I've no idea when they were added to the apps package I only found them when I saw the file size was different to the one I had from ages ago. I don't actually need them at all but they looked good so gave them a trial run.

great thanks for the context - we'll reach out to the team behind it and let you know as soon as we have an answer.

If there are others who are using this feature and it's causing MT4 to crash - please let me know by commenting on this thread.

    • I'm sorry but I cannot rise to that bait. No comment
    • That may depend on which market you are referring to when you say "the market".  Agri commodities basically seem to move in ranges but within those ranges they may move in broad 5s or 3s.  As for FX, Indices and metals I have found that they do conform to the basics.  Don't know what you mean by "except when it doesn't", could you be looking at it incorrectly?  Maybe you could give us an example...
    • lol. Which ones?  EWT is full of them.  I have tried half a dozen times to read Prechter and Frost's book and I still only understand a tiny fraction of it.  The basic gist seems to be, the market moves in 5-3-5 waves - except when it doesn't.
