I have many accounts with auto update.
If i add your EA to each of them what would be the result on Myfxbook? Do i loose my existing accounts in my portfolio?

No, switching to the EA will have no effect on your accounts.

Ouch! We depend very heavily on myfxbook...probably too much. It has become a core part of our activities and the auto-update feature is, by far, the most important part of the service to us. We have dozens of accounts and are constantly adding them and removing them and using myfxbook to share performance among our group. There is not another product, fully commercial or otherwise, which allows this for MT4. I'm sure many people share my sentiment. If autoupdate were gone, it would send us scrambling for a substitute as maintaining update EAs on all of our systems on various servers would be a huge inconvenience.

My preference (assuming I am allowed one!!) would be to have the Auto Update feature, even if some brokers blocked it, and to have myfxbook publish a list of those brokers who cooperate. I would seriously consider switching away from a broker that would not allow myfxbook connectivity. I suppose I am not alone to say this. Myfxbook has serious influence in this business and it cannot be ignored by brokers as they cannot offer a substitute.

That's my say. Would really like to see the auto update feature back quickly. Does anyone agree?

please add this feature back! most ppl wouldnt mind reconnecting to server every now and then. its a hassle im willing to put up with as this method saves bandwidth from using publisher or EA!

It is probably not the brokers but the Metaquotes... or I am wrong? Hm, really curious to understand. Also, I see huge delays in the competition's update but I guess it is not because of FxPro, right? (Mean with their acknowledgement of such blocking...)
Back to the topic, disabling the great auto update will hurt us and you. Better to find out what caused it and resolve the case. If it is Metaquotes it shows clearly their way (not just about that)...

Guys are you serious?
I am not gonna reinstall all my accounts and add EA to each mt4 I have.
It would be easier to go to MT4i which works.

I totally agree with sistematica trader. We have the same problem. No problem in given warranty about brokers that really works. Avafx and pepperstone doesn not put any reading limitations

Guys, we're working hard on fixing this while checking the issue with several brokers to see how can it be resolved.

Probably MT, they recently also blocked all third party developers, clearly part of some ongoing decision they've made...

It is an issue with metaquotes and I think they are currently working on a solution. Customers and vps providers' ip addresses have also been blocked. You should add back the auto update option but remove the shorter time frames checking periods until it is sorted out.
