MT4 Upgrade?


Caseynotes

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)

Hey folks - let me get our Trading Services IT team on this. Apologies the thread slipped past this morning. 

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.

    • US DOLLAR TALKING POINTS: The US Dollar has dropped by as much as 3.3% from the high that was set last Wednesday and many are asking if the USD has topped. Given how aggressively overbought the greenback had become, this retracement looks to be a correction in the trend with no evidence yet of anything larger. However – price is approaching some major supports and performance around those levels will be key for determining near-term strategy. Of particular importance is the fact that the US Dollar is a composite of global currencies so the bigger question is when sell-offs in EUR/USD or GBP/USD might return and, in a related item, how will USD/JPY hold up with the pair pegged to the 145 level thought to be the line-in-the-sand for Japan’s Ministry of Finance?

    • EUR/USD and GBP/USD edge up while USD/JPY falters at ¥145.00 again A pause in the dollar rally sees USD/JPY stuck below recent highs, but both the euro and sterling have made gains in early trading against the greenback.    Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 04 October 2022  EUR/USD rebound continues After falling to a twenty-year low last month, the euro continues to rebound against the US dollar with EUR/USD. This still looks very much like a counter-trend bounce that sees the price head back to the 50-day simple moving average (SMA), currently $1.1018 and then begins to falter. This would be in line with previous bounces since April, all of which have found it impossible to hold above the 50-day SMA. This move could see the price head back to $1.01. Further targets lie at $1.02 and then $1.0374. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD recovers $1.13 The GBP/USD continues to defy the doomsters with a recovery above $1.13. Its own counter-trend bounce remains intact, and if previous bounces are any guide there is still some potential for upside, even if it only reaches the 50-day SMA. Like EUR/USD, the pound is still making lower highs and lower lows against the dollar, with the previous peak at $1.176 marking out the initial target for this bounce. Both stochastics and moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) have room to move up to support this move, but selling the rallies still appears to be the approach here for this downtrending market, although it looks like for now there is still a desire to push the pair higher in the short-term. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY stalls below ¥145.00 It does look like ¥145.00 is the ceiling in USD/JPY for the time being – repeated attempts to break higher have come to naught, despite the continued strength of the US dollar. Indeed, it is perhaps precisely that we need a pullback in order for the trend to revive. The pair rallied hard from the August-lows, and now sits at some distance from the 50-day SMA (currently ¥139.15). A pullback towards this level might ‘clear the air’, create a higher low and provide a springboard for fresh bullish momentum. Source: ProRealTime
