Before you install an EA, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request your account to be enabled to accept EAs.
An EA can then be installed on your Metatrader trading platform by following the steps below.
Firstly, download and save the EA executable file. Identify whether the file is archived or in its normal format. To perform this check, right-click on the file and select ‘Properties’. At the top, it will say if it is a MetaQuotes Language 5 file. If it is not, it is most likely an archive. If the file is archived or zipped, make sure to unzip the file.
Now, open your MT5 platform. At the menu bar, click ‘File’ and navigate to ‘Open Data Folder’. Double click the ‘MQL5’ folder and open the ‘Experts’ folder. Now go back to where you have downloaded your EA and drag it into the open ‘Experts’ folder.
Once done, close all windows. Restart MetaTrader 5 platform and the EA should appear in your ‘Navigator’ panel.
