ALL depends on the computer, with VM at least.

Hey, MT4 platforms runs with high resources, I cannot say it in numbers. But if you have a look at https://www.cheap-forex-vps.com/index.php/forex-vps-plans you can see an average number of MT4 platforms according to the technical ressources.
It is tough, and once my VPS has been frozen because of a high volume of data transfer. So choose wisely the correct service to run the number of platforms you need.
Yours faithfully


I suggest to use a VPS to run Expert Advisors to get most out from your script. Rather its batter to find Forex broker who offer optimized vps service for its clients. Some broker allow free vps for trader with some conditions, other offer a cheap rate vps for their trader

I run 7 MT4 platforms om my 5 years old computer.
On each of them is EA working 5 days 24 hours.
I restart computer once , in weekend.
But I have one secret : My EA do NOT work on every tick.
I have input parameter now often to work : normally once on 5 sec
Those , if I have more terminals working, I have to increase No Working time.
And the CPU load will be the same. (usually below 20%)

Small GAIN, big WIN

I have run two different platforms at the same time together with a bunch of other software on a pretty old computer, I didn't experience any noticeable lag.

Also if charts have open indicators this could slow down the performance. In my experience, if I run EAs or indicators that take every tick, this creates also large log files and reduces the speed significantly. As far as I know, the MT4 platform uses the processor more than the RAM, so this has certain limitations. Maybe you can try with another VPS solution if you haven't found a fix yet.

When I open in the same screen multiple terminals, I notice that my PC slows down, although it has 16 GB RAM. I guess it has something to deal with my video card as it is not a high end one. I use 3-4 indicators on a chart max.

Knowledge is king!

Why using VPS for EAs will be a good option? Please can you explain a bit more? I suppose you have good experience you can share.

Yes, this may be the case. I personally use only one platform and all is fine even if I open many charts and number of indicators on each.
