MT4 High CPU & Memory Usage


Ugoagoago

Question

Hi - I wondered if there are any suggestions to the high CPU usage & high Memeory Usage of my current MT4 platform.

I have removed the old install - cleared all indicators and associated files.

Re-Installed up to date programme - added the few indicators I use (4).

Cleared the history. Reduced the number of bars in a chart.

Opened a simple chart no indicators.

Still getting high CPU usage & high Memeory Usage (Running WIN10)

Any suggestions welcome.

Thank you in advance.

Hugh

Hi, mt4 shouldn't be using much, check your resource monitor. With 10 charts running with indicators (some custom indicators can be a burden and cause mt4 to slow) am using minimal cpu and 1.3GB of memory.

Mt4 is 'terminal exe'. see pic.

Hi Casey,

Thank you for taking the time to reply.

I've spent what seems to be hours/days trying to resolve this as explained earlier.

I thought I'd try a download from another provider - I did this and everything back to normal (just as you posted - Low CPU and Power Usage).

I've re-patched all my indicators and templates to this one and everything is fine.

I still haven't the foggiest what was causing it as it was a "clean" install and carried out all the usual key points concerning high CPU/Usage. (I've had MT4 running for about 4 years on my computa and have never had any issues like this). (***IG if you can suggest anything they would be welcome***)

Anyhow for the time being - I can't spend any more time on this.

Thanks again for your input.

Regards

Hugh

    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
    • We have to wait until Friday to find out if the UK economy skirted a recession.   Richard Snow, foreign exchange analyst at Daily FX, tells IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor that after the third quarter contraction of 0.3%, there is a risk around the incoming data for the fourth quarter. Here he discusses GBP/USD as a trade to go short. But what if GDP comes in slightly higher? Richard says that is likely to be largely academic and that he believes the short trade will prevail.

    • Breaking News - US NFPs Surge to 517k vs 185k Expectations, Unemployment Rate Falls to 3.4% Feb 3, 2023 | DailyFX Nick Cawley, Senior Strategist Source: Bloomberg   US DOLLAR (DXY) PRICE AND CHART ANALYSIS US NFPs smash expectations in January. US dollar picks up a bid. Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 517k in January, and the unemployment rate fell to 3.4% according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Hourly earnings also beat expectations. Last month’s NFP figure was also revised higher from 223k to 260k. ‘ Job growth was widespread in January, led by gains in leisure and hospitality, professional and business services, and health care. Employment also increased in government, partially reflecting the return of workers from a strike.’     The Federal Reserve hiked interest rates by 25 basis points at this Wednesday's FOMC meeting, a move fully expected, and priced in by the market. Fed chair Powell, while continuing to stress that further rises are data dependent, added a new word to his FOMC vocabulary, disinflation, sending the US dollar lower and risk markets sharply higher. Powell said that it is a ‘good thing that disinflation so far has not come at expense of labor market’, adding that ‘this disinflationary period is in early stages’. While chair Powell will still keep tightening monetary policy to break the back of inflation, financial markets are now pricing in just one more 25bp rate hike at the March meeting before a pause in Q2 and Q3, while rate cuts are now seen in Q4. FOMC Hikes Rates 25 bps as Expected, Leaves Open Further Hike Expectations The US dollar (DXY) picked up a bid post-release rising around 60 cents to 101.90 US DOLLAR (DXY) DAILY PRICE CHART – FEBRUARY 3, 2023     What is your view on the US Dollar – bullish or bearish?
