Common MetaTrader/ Autochartist plugin issues

If you are having issues connecting your MetaTrader platform with Autochartist, consult the following list of common issues and resolutions that may remedy your situation.

Common issues:

  • Did the Installation work? Is the EA listed under MetaTrader's Expert Advisors?
  • If not, try getting the installation log and forwarding it onto the Autochartist support team.
  • Are there any Error Messages? Take a screenshot of the error message and if you do not understand the error message, send it to Broker Support.
  • Confirm that Webrequests are enabled and configured in MetaTrader correctly.
  • Is it requesting Authentication? The Terminal Server, Account Server, and Live or Demo Trading account are all checked for authentication. Verify that you are using a Live Trading account on your branded MetaTrader terminal.
  • Is there a notification that says "Delayed Results" or are features missing? For instance, if you are using a demo account, the EA may display "Delayed Results" and the Probability filter section may be missing. If you have a VIP level requirement, you may not reach the required balance, preventing you from using the Probability Filter even when they have access to live results.
  • Check Powershell version. On Windows computers, the most typical error during installation is that you are using an older version of Windows or that your Powershell is out of date.
