This is what it says on Metaquotes forum:

All services that use the compromised network protocols are blocked. This applies ZuluTrade, Tradency, Tradeo and a number of other companies. All of them use illegal methods of connectivity and in direct violation of our rights and license to use the platforms.


Ethan, they say you and others have hacked their API. Is that so?

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


Yes, you can use the EA. I was referring to the FTP publisher.
We've removed the need to click 'switch to EA' option - just run the EA and it will pick up the account.

I wouldn't say that 'hacked'.
Maybe reverse-engineered is a better word.
When MT4 was lauched security was not a concern at any level in their product line.

If you want to connect directly to any MT4 server you can do it just buying (or inventing your own) such reverse-engineered solution.
For us customers this is very convenient because we don't have to do anything and it just works!
Or worked until now 😡

If MetaQuotes would publish an official API to access MT4 servers legally we would not be in this situation at all.
And lets hope that they will publish API access for MT4 servers soon!

Being Bearish or Bullish Makes No Difference

I think, the launch of AUTOTRADE collides with the MT4 Signals Business..

That could be one of the reasons. IMO..

Thanks Ethan for support, but I have the problem of 'Track record not verified' and 'Trading Privilegies not verified'. I did the required actions for that, but they don't match...Some help ?

As far as we're aware, we did not hack anything. If they don't wish us to connect to accounts, that is their decision which we do respect. In any case they should offer an API just like cTrader are currently working on and other competing platforms, otherwise they will be losing clients.

What about the autotrade demo accounts? I notice mine hasn't been updated recently either. Since we don't have access to those accounts to put an ea on. Does that mean that's also canceled now?

I have the same problem : loading data 'Please wait while we're loading live data...' for more than two hours... and nothing's coming.
