Guys, make sure to enable the AutoTrading before placing the EAs on the chart. That is the most common mistake.
The EAs are the same, it does not matter if they trade on Demo or Live. As long as you are with a regulated broker (not a scam broker) and you place the EAs properly onto the MetaTrader platform, all must work fine.
Send me more pictures and details so I can help you out. Anyway, I am guessing most of the time.September 23, 2020 at 14:40 #61419nu2this2Participant
Was there a solution? Im having a similar problem.September 20, 2020 at 15:07 #61379
From these screenshots it is really hard to say:
1. The screenshot from the MetaEditor is not where we remove the strategies with //.
2. I see just one picture from the Demo and not from the Live to compare how this EA traded there?
Is that a Portfolio EA or a single one?September 18, 2020 at 13:55 #61279September 18, 2020 at 13:54 #61278September 18, 2020 at 13:53 #61276
I keep having discrepancies in my live and demo account results. Both are Dukascopy accounts. Both run on a virtual server.
If you look at below EURUSD EA (10106004) it opened a trade on a live account at 10:11am on 17/09/2020 and was closed by a stop loss at 10:06 on 18/09/2020. In comparison the same EA opened a trade on a demo account at 10.15 on 17/09/2020 and took profit at 10:54 on 17/09/2020.June 23, 2020 at 9:04 #51785June 23, 2020 at 9:03 #51784
Below is a screen shot from MetaEditor with an EA portfolio where I essentialy removed all other EAs leaving just one to open&close trades (this was to maximize its profitability in terms of lot size based on how active it was). Initially I muted all unnecessary EAs using your “//” trick but either way it would not initiate any trades. I can see in a Metaeditor that this particular EA is using volume indicators which could be a reason why it is dormant?June 23, 2020 at 8:28 #51782
you want to say that you have removed with the “//” trick all the rest strategies in this Portfolio EA, and left just one strategy? And it doesn’t open trades?
Can you send me screenshots from the code where you did the “//” thing, and also from the journal?

Yep, it is just this one EA that is not working on a live account. The rest is fine.
It may be worth mentioning it is one of the ea portfolio and the rest eas in that portfolio have been muted using quotation marks.

Yes, Dukascopy guarantees that the data is the same on Demo and Live, that is why we used that data for the free app.
Is the issue only with one EA? And the others open trades on the live?
Does this EA include volume indicators?June 20, 2020 at 14:42 #51341
Yes, the smiley face is there alright.
I ve deleted this EA from live account and repeated copying it from demo account again. Will let you know next week if that worked.

We had a look with the team and Petko, and everything looks fine.
Are you sure you have done it all right on the Live account?
Can you check if you have the smiley face in the right up corner?
If you have first placed the EAs and then enabled the Auto Trading, you might not see the smiley face, and you will have to do it again.
