How do I know if my EA is running correctly?
To make sure that your EA is running correctly you must first confirm that EAs are enabled on your platform. To do so, check that the ‘AutoTrading’ button on the main toolbar at the top of the screen is green. In case it is red, click on it to enable EAs.
You must then ensure that your EA is enabled for live trading. To do this, right-click on the chart where the EA has been placed, select ‘Expert Advisors’ and then ‘Properties’. Check the box labelled ‘Allow live trading’ and click ‘OK’. Your EA should now be working properly.
Once your EA is up and running, you can check the ‘Experts’ and ‘Journal’ tabs in your terminal to see if your system is reporting any errors.
Please note that if your EA is running and automatic trading is enabled, you will be able to see a smiley face on the top right corner of the chart next to the name of the EA.
