What is FX Blue Publisher
In this article, I will show you how to use the FX Blue Publisher for MT4 to identify which are the top-performing trading robots while trading with portfolio EAs.
I continue now from the 99 EAs account where I have already some results. And as I said, it is very hard to follow the results from the account history when we have many different Expert Advisors. And I said that you have 2 options to manage the 99 EAs. You can keep it this way, trading in 1 account.
And at the moment you decide you want to go Live, you put the 99 EAs and you go for the Live Account.
The 2nd option is to keep the 99 EAs on your Demo Account. After that, move the top performers or the EAs that are currently profiting to your Live Account. The reason is every strategy has a profitable period. Every strategy has a losing period.
Amongst these strategies that are trading, some are in the profitable phase, others are in the losing phase.
What I will show you, is how to extract the EAs that are in their profitable phase using the FX Blue Publisher app. And from there, you can move these EAs to your Live Account. For that purpose, I will use one statistical website called FX Blue.
I am not doing a promotion of the FX Blue Publisher
It is free to use, its service is about adhering to results. The website is fxblue.com. Don’t take it as a recommendation or something. I’m not connected to the website, not promoting it or anything. Just it has this FX Blue Live feature which allows the traders to follow the results on their accounts.
Actually, we have a lot more statistics and we can see exactly which are the EAs that profit the most. Now, according to accounts synchronization, it depends on what you are using. In other words, if you are using MetaTrader 5, 4, cTrader, there is the FX Blue Publisher EA app, etc.
What I will go for is MT4 account synchronization.
I click on register and now I will select the broker server.
Therefore, here we have hundreds, maybe thousands. I don’t know how many they are, we have a lot of servers and brokers. Let me look for HFMarkets. It is SA Demo Server, the one that I have, yet I will need to write down the account number. It is 40669106. Read-only password – here you have 2 options. 1 is if you receive the Read-Only password from your broker or recently actually not all brokers provide the Read-Only password. This is known as similar to the investor password.
A different method of registering
I will show you a different method. I will write down my own password and put down my email as well. I’ll just type it in and click on Register.
Now this will bring me to a page that says, Please verify your email address to get access to the full range of FX Blue services and you’re currently publishing your results using account synchronization. Click on Please verify your email address,
a small window will pop up where I need to put my name and address and I will click on Send SMS.
What happens is I will receive an email on the phone and I need to reply to that email from my email saying anything as a subject line. Hello. Thank you. And this will verify your email. I just did it from my phone. In addition, got the SMS, I sent an email to the email they sent me, which is confirmation. I click on continue.
FX Blue Publisher Installation
What I will need to do is click on Apps,
and I will click on more apps on the bottom.
This is the one that I need, FX Blue Publisher EA for MT4.
I will click on that one. It is free. That’s an Expert Advisor that will publish my results. Click on it, it’s just downloading in my downloads folder, double click on it again.
It’s very easy actually to install it and to use it. Therefore if you follow the steps one by one, you will see that it’s nothing hard. And it asks me for which account I want to install. I have quite many accounts and MetaTrader platforms installed. The one that I’m showing right now is the one with Hot Forex.
I click on Install,
and it says the FX Blue Publisher EA for MT4 software has been successfully installed. I will go back to the MetaTrader platform. I right-click and refresh.
FX Blue Publisher
The same thing as installing Expert Advisors on the platform. Here it is – FX Blue Publisher.
It is ready to use. Usually, need one more chart to use the FX Blue Publisher. I already opened 99 charts, that’s the maximum with MetaTrader. Clicking on the Chart Window. Undoubtedly, nothing happens, it won’t open another chart.
It’s 99 is the maximum. That’s why I’m using 99 EAs to get the maximum out of it. The FX Blue Publisher needs a chart. Now what that means, is that I will look for one Expert Advisor that has no trades opened at the moment. And how do I recognize it? There was a trade that was opened and now it was closed.
All the rest, they had open trades.
There are trades opened and actually, that could be a historical moment that I’m recording right now. We can see something, $20 000 for the Bitcoin was just hit and everyone was waiting for that moment for years. Now it happens whilst I record this lecture.
Trading with Expert Advisors
That’s the great thing when trading with Expert Advisors. It doesn’t really matter what happens on the market, I am trading with Expert Advisors and no matter what I’m doing, I have many Experts trading on my other accounts right now.
I see very nice profits with this demonstrational account and it’s very similar to what I have in my other accounts. So that is why I love trading with Expert Advisors. I don’t need to do anything manually.
Bitcoin is already above the $20 000, something I was waiting for, as I knew that there will be more volatility and nice profits in my accounts. Let me continue what I was explaining. The FX Blue Publisher needs to have a chart and I will just use 1 chart with 1 Expert Advisor that has no trades opened at the moment. And this is the 1 with 737, ending on 737.
How the FX Blue Publisher works
When I run the FX Blue Publisher, I disable this one for a while. And then after that, I put it back. I just want to show you how it works. Double click on the FX Blue Publisher and it asks me if I want to stop the 737 Expert Advisor and execute the FX Blue Publisher, click on Yes.
Importantly, I will click on Common and I need to allow the DLL imports.
In addition, in Inputs, I need to put my FX Blue username and the password. I enter the password and on the top, there is the account number 40669106, and pretty much that’s it. Click on OK.
And it says sending data to FX Blue Live, last publication, successful. It just took a few seconds.
Now after we are ready, what I will do is simply go back to the FX Blue and I will click on FX Blue Live and view accounts and I will click on statistics.
These are the statistics that I have from the account. I can see a few stats that are useful. Weekly return, monthly return. This is based on just 2 days of data that I have.
It says 9 days because the account was opened previously, I started with the Experts just 2 days ago and to see the floating profit loss, the balance, the equity rising right now because it is the Bitcoin time breaking the $20 000. The thing is, if I click on Strategy, I can see all of the trades.
I can see all the strategies arranged by the Magic Numbers.
And the result is combined.I know for each Expert Advisor, how many trades were opened, what was the profit, what was the loss. I know the net profit as well. I have many more statistics like profit factor, winners, losers. If I scroll to the right, I see a lot of statistics. Pips, we have average wins, average losses. It’s a lot.
I’m not going to talk about all of the statistics just in the next lecture I will share with you some more of what are the systems that I have been using. I will give you a few different options and you will know how you can select which strategies to extract for your Live Account.

You could be testing the 99 EAs on a Demo Account and extract just the top ones. If I click on the net profit twice on the top, I will see the Expert Advisors that brought the most profits. The first one is great. It already did 9 trades and it did most net profit, which is just $6.
This is why we trade with 0.01. If you are trading with 0.1, that would be $66. If you trade with a complete lot, that would be $666 of a profit. And if I scroll down, you will see the total net profit, which is 110. And if I scroll to the right one more time, where were the pips. You can see that we already have nearly 12 000 pips.
Finally one more time in Bitcoin.
I’m definitely going to check what’s going on in my other accounts. Maybe I will take some quick profits. That’s a great time for the Bitcoin breaking the 20,000, definitely. And I will bring back the Expert to this chart and I will see you in the next lecture.
