Hi Ethan, if it is not too much to ask, could you please list out the brokers here which are blocking your servers and which aren't? Maybe then we could all make a switch to the brokers who are not blocking access to autoupdate. I would seriously take my business to the brokers that are offering access to autoupdate on myfxbook and I'm sure many people would follow suit.

Problem is that this is not broker related. Brokers use the MT4 platform which is supplied by MetaQuotes - we are being blocked without the broker's knowledge or permission.

In any case, we're checking with a few large brokers for a custom solution which may resolve this.

I just wanted to say Thank You to Ethan and the myfxbook team for giving this their full attention. I have no doubts that you guys are just as frustrated by all this as the users that are experiencing problems.

The fact that we have access to your service with no fees is a blessing. For all those that are trying to crap on myfxbook for this issue I just have to say 'grow up'. You guys are not paying for this service and in turn to accuse them of trying to cut corners to save money is just silly. If you are not happy with the service you are being given for free, by all means stop using it.

Totally agree!
Myfxbook is not the only one having problems with new 'functionality' introduced by MetaQuotes without a warning.
And there has always been the workaround to use their EA.
But there is no better service than this, so stopping to use it is not an option for many.

Being Bearish or Bullish Makes No Difference

My Sunbird account updated initially but hasn't for a couple of days now. My AAAFx, FXCM and FXDD accounts haven't and they are all on build 500. Alpari is updating, but it's on build 482.

Why Publisher does not work ? You can't do anything with it ?


Publisher will work for a new account, not if you wish to resume publishing an account which was publishing using the auto update method.

As to the other issue - make sure you're running the EA as administrator (right click).


That is very bad, because a lot of brokers deletes history older than a certain period, so I would lose a whole lot of information. Is it not possible to make the EA publisher continue on an old account.

Besides, a lot of my accounts has neither the 'Switch to EA' nor the Connect button

I read the translated version and it makes little sense to me. How is myfxbook using illegal protocol? Is MQ even providing a legal protocol for myfxbook to use? Why not just tell myfxbook what they have to do to comply (be it a license fee or whatever) and this can be resolved.

EDIT:Just cause a user posts and calls myfxbook liars and cheaters in a forum does not make it fact.
