Maybe the name of this paragraph isn’t correct. It should be “how to make sure your MT4 expert advisor is running.”
Apparently, traders’ main concern is to push down the AutoTrading tab on the main menu. That’s a simple and straightforward task.
Next, in order to find the MT4 expert advisor, you will need to run and to drag it on a currency pair’s chart. However, that’s not enough for the expert advisor to run.
After following the two steps mentioned, on the right top of the chart, a small emoticon appears. If the expert advisor is up and running, you will see a smiley. If not, it will show you a “sad” face, telling you something is wrong.
One simple thing to check is to right-click on the screen and go under the expert advisor properties.
