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?
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)...
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.
