Today’s question about the Local Trade Copier:
What does the red question mark icon on the left side of the LTC dashboard mean? When I restarted the EA today it is still showing in red.
This red question mark icon tells you that there were some trades ignored and not copied. Every case is unique and you should look into the “Experts” tab to see the exact reason why your account ignored trades. It could be because of your special EA settings or it could be an error.
One case that may cause this is that your MT4 does not show all available currency pairs in your account. Please refer to the “Market Watch” window on the left side of the MT4, click the right mouse button and in the popup menu choose “Show All”. All new trades will be affected by these changes, even without restarting the EA, but if you have pending orders on the master account that were not copied because of this then you should restart the EA.
I hope that helps, and please share this information with someone who needs it.
