Trading Signals

You can copy other traders' deals on your account in the automated mode using the Signals services. You can choose from thousands of signal providers with detailed trading statistics and reviews. Subscribe in a couple of minutes and track the results via the mobile app.

How it works via a mobile phone

Usually signal copying requires a desktop version of the platform, which the user must constantly keep running. However, it can be replaced with a virtual platform running on a VPS. This solution is also used for subscriptions via mobile devices:

  • Select a signal from the service
  • Specify copying settings
  • A VPS is automatically created for you: a trading platform to copy deals will be launched on it
  • Connect to the same account on your mobile device and monitor copying results

You can find out more about the Signals service in the desktop platform documentation.

How to subscribe to a signal

Select "Trading Signals" in the application menu to open the showcase of signal providers. The complete trading history is available for each provider.

Select from thousands of signal providers

Select a signal and tap "Subscribe". This will open the confirmation and payment page. The page shows the full payment for the service, including the signal subscription and the VPS rental fees. Please read the service rules.

To pay for the subscription from your MQL5.community account balance, select the MQL5 option. If you do not have enough money on your account, you do not necessarily need to top it up. Payment can be made directly through one of the payment systems. Select any of the available options and follow the system instructions to complete the payment. To maintain a clear and unified history of subscriptions, the required amount is first transferred to your MQL5.community account, from which an appropriate payment is made.

Pay for the subscription and configure copying

After the payment, you are taken to the signal copy settings page. Parameters specification is similar to that in the desktop platform version. You will also need two passwords: one of you MQL5.com account and another one of your trading account. Trading account password can be found in the registration email in the internal platform mailbox.

To complete the setup and to activate the signal, click Copy Trades. All deals copied from the signal provider will be reflected in the Trade section.
