We’ve recently added a variety of new products, so now you can access over 300 trading instruments on MT4 and MT5. It’s important to remember, that depending on your computer’s processing speed, your internet connection, and the number of charts open, you may experience some issues with the speed at which your MT4 platform operates due to the increased bandwidth required for the additional instrument data. Here are a few ways that you can minimise potential speed issues.
- Reduce the number of open charts you have.
- Hide any unused symbols in your Market Watch.
- Custom Indicators / EAs
Quite often, poorly coded or resource-intensive custom indicators and EAs can cause significant lagging and performance issues on your MT4/MT5 platform. Even more so when applied to numerous charts. If you are experiencing lagging or performance issues, you may need to remove custom indicators or EAs from your charts.
