Copying Forex trades from one MT4 master into three MT4 client accounts

In this video I demonstrate how I copy trades from one MetaTrader 4 account into other 3x MT4 accounts using the Local Trade Copier.

    Can I run an EA on the master account at the same time? And it get copied on my clients accounts?

  • osas says:

    is it possible to copy someone trading my account , i mean the ea is in another computer elsewhere but i have access to the account on my own computer?

    • It is very simple. Login into both accounts on your computer, the MT4 account you want to copy and your MT4 account where you want to receive the trades.
      Then use LTC copier on both MT4 accounts to copy the trades. My eBook and videos on this website explains this process step by step.

    Can I copy someones account which the password is a view only (investor) trading account?

  • Guys Rimantas is the Mt4 Guru and the Local Trade Copier is the real McCoy.
    I found out about this young man and his services a couple of years back when he was selling courses for the Auto Trading Academy.
    Even thou I never purchased that product he was always kind enough of answer my questions.
    After testing out a couple of the Free copiers on MQL5 marketplace but got frustrated with the over complicated installations and the fact that some of these copiers on MQL5 did not work as advertised, I started my search for a new trade copier.
    Man I will say this working with Rimantas software is like driving a Rolls Royce, The rest of the copiers out their are straight trash.
    Thank you Rimantas

    My trading account is a client account of another trader. Can I use my account to copy the trades to another account using this trade copier? Please take note my account is not master account, I am just a client of another trader’s account.

    • Hi,

      thank you for your comment on
      we appreciate it

      To answer your question:

      Yes you can copy these trades you are receiving from another trader to another account. In this scenario your existing account (which is also a client account of another trader) will become master account as well.
      What you need to do is attach our LTC Server EA on any one chart on your account, then you need to open another instance of mt4 platform, login to account you want these trades to be copied to and attach LTC Client EA on any one chart on that account.
      This way when your account receives trade from a trader it will also send this trade to your other account

      Please note that if you are copying the trades from a trader using our LTC software and you already have client EA installed on your account then you will need to change some other settings as well, if not that is it.
      Please contact us at if you need further assistance.

      Have a great day

        Hello Rimantas. Can this copy process happen 100% unnoticed by the trader and his broker at all? Or does his broker see that data/trades are copied to another account and e.g. another broker, since his broker has insight into the EA (probably even on the text presented on the MT4 chart)? In that case I would have to deactivate the text on the chart and rename the EA? Because an EA called “LTC Client” is very obvious what it is doing…
        Thanks for your answer

        • Hi,

          There is no way for the trader to know that you are copying, don’t worry.
          Brokers can not see the text on a chart, but you can control it in client ea settings too. Setting called DashboardDisplay

          Technically broker has access to the log files of course so the broker can see that you are using an Ea
          Usually, brokers do not care about that but you can rename client ea to any other name if you want, it will work fine

          Hope this helps.

  • taufiq says:

    hi, I just want to know, its possible if i ran 2 master acc in 1 vps ?

    • Yes sure, it is possible.
      You will need to attach server ea on one chart on EACH master. Server ea and client ea has a setting called SignalProviderID.
      Set first server ea SignalProviderID to 1
      Set second server ea SignalProviderID to 2

      Now with clients:
      if you want client account to only follow one master account attach client ea and set SignalProviderID to 1 OR 2 depends on which master you want to follow

      If you want the client to follow BOTH masters:

      in a client account attach 2 client Eas on 2 charts
      Set a magic number on each client ea to a different number. It can be any numbers but different.
      Set first client ea SignalProviderID to 1
      Set second client ea SignalProviderID to 2

      That’s it

      Hope this helps

  • Darren George says:

    good day, this looks really interesting, my master account has two Ea’s one that opens the trades and the other then manages the risk and cuts loss at a certain point can this be replicated to clients so they get exactly the same trade management?

    • Don’t worry, your master account can have as many EAs as you need (there is a limit of 100 by MT4).
      Simply open another chart of any instrument and attach our trade copier Server EA there. It monitors all pairs/actions from one chart.
      Copier will send all trading operations to the client accounts.

  • Nick says:

    Hi, can I use this EA for my own personal use ? I want to use this for one broker. I have three trading accounts with this one broker. Can this still work ? because I only have one Metatrade4 platform with the one broker but I have three accounts I would like to copy in the broker.
