If you’re having problems with your MT4 platform freezing, you’re not alone. This is a common issue that many traders experience. In this blog post, we will discuss why does my MT4 freeze and how to fix it. We’ll also provide some tips to help you avoid freezing in the future.
The causes of a frozen MT4 terminal
One of the most common reasons why your MTG Terminal may freeze is due to insufficient RAM on your computer. If you are running other programs on your computer while also trying to run the MTG Terminal, this can cause your computer to run out of memory and freeze. To fix this, you can either close other programs that are running in the background or increase the amount of RAM on your computer.
Another common reason why MTG Terminal may freeze is because your internet connection is not stable. If you are using a wireless internet connection, try to connect your computer to the internet using a physical cable. This will provide a more stable connection and may help to fix the problem.
Possible solutions to unfreeze your MT4 terminal
If your MT position is in profit, then you can close it manually to avoid any further loss. To do this, simply right click on your open position and select “Close Order”.
If you have any pending orders (Buy Limit/Sell Limit/Buy Stop/Sell Stop), you can try to modify or delete them. To do this, right click on the order and select “Modify or Delete Order”.
If neither of the above solutions work, then the only other option is to restart your MT terminal. To do this, simply go to File > Close All in your MT menu. Once the program has closed, reopen it and log back in. Your positions and orders should now be gone.
Prevention is better than cure – how to stop your MT4 terminal from freezing in the first place
It’s always annoying when your MT4 terminal starts freezing up, especially in the middle of an important trade. But there are a few things you can do to try and prevent it from happening in the first place.
One of the most common causes of an MT4 freeze is too many indicators and expert advisors (EAs) running on your charts. If you’re running a lot of these, it can put a strain on your computer’s resources, which can lead to a freeze. So, if you’re not using all of the indicators and EAs that you have installed, remove them from your charts.
It’s also important to make sure that you’re using the latest version of MT4, as older versions can be more prone to freezing. To check for updates, go to the Help menu and select “About MetaTrader 4 Terminal”. If there’s a new update available, it will be listed there.
