MT4 Account Connection Limit

May 31, 2013  |  MetaTrader 4

Unless you have been hiding under a rock, you have probably heard about the recent MT4 limits imposed by MetaQuotes. The first to experience this was myfxbook, who started having issues connecting to user accounts a few weeks ago. With the recent MT4 update, MetaQuotes have imposed a limit on how many accounts a single IP address can connect to, which obviously is a huge issue for myfxbook as they are connecting to thousands of accounts from a small range of IPs.

This limitation affects all MT4 service providers connecting to a large number of accounts, especially signal providers, which is the main reason MetaQuotes have imposed this limit on account connections per IP. MetaQuotes are currently rolling out their own MT4 and MT5 signal service platform, so obviously they don’t want anyone competing with them. As long as you are only connecting to a few accounts per IP address there shouldn’t be any issues.

Do I think they are playing fair? Heck no! The primary reason for the success of the MT4 platform is due to 3rd-party developers, and now they are trying to screw them all. Nice going MetaQuotes!
