MT4 High CPU & Memory Usage

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

    • Are you seeing what I'm seeing, Jasmin? 🤯
    • Look, I will gladly get paid to do technical analysis and never put another trade on in my life 😘
    • Here's the value of the Vanguard S&P 500 ETF tracker at the start of February and most recent price:     Here's the SPDR  S&P U.S. Dividend Aristocrats by comparison       The SPDR index has an annual yield of 2.53% and a five-year annualized return of 12.19% The Vanguard index has an annual yield of 1.47% and a five-year annualized return of 16.39%   So my question is, why would anybody choose the Dividend Aristocrat index over the S&P 500 index?
