- June 18, 2020 at 8:47 #51309
Upon transferring a succesful EA from one account to the other (same broker), I ve noticed that while it still continues to make profit and open new trades on the 1st account, it remains dormant on the 2nd account. I ve cross checked recent opening and closing times to make sure it is not in stagnation and while for instance it opened and closed 10 trades in the last week on the 1st account, it opened 0 trades on the 2nd account.
What could be a reason for this?

is the second account the same as the first one? Is it a Demo account with the same broker?
I guess not because for some reason it doesn’t open the trades. It is something from the broker of the second account.
Send me some screenshots. Also, from the journal of the second account.

Thanks for quick reply.
1st account is mt4 demo Dukascopy Europe and the 2nd one is mt4 live Dukascopy Bank. I believe they use same historical data (other closed trades match each other).
The problem is with one particular EA which trades succesfully on a demo but doesn’t generate any trades on a live account. Below is screenshot of its last trade on demo
However, there is no record of it on a live account (although EA 10101010 been active on both accounts since Mon 15th June)
In the journal there are some disconnection and ping errors although they occured after the trade should have been inititated

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.

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.

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 22, 2020 at 12:34 #51573
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.

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?

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 9:04 #51785September 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.September 18, 2020 at 13:54 #61278
