Steps 1: Download MT4 From your Broker and InstallThe MT4 program can be downloaded directly either from the MT4 web site or through any of the large number of forex brokers that offer the program.With a VPS server with 1GB RAM, you will be able to run at least 4-6 platforms at the same time. However, you have to note that you need a powerful VPS with higher specification for setting up 50 MT4. VPS Malaysia can provide you Forex VPS up to 128GB of RAM and 32 Cores of CPU.
Steps 2: Setup Multiple MT4 (Go to next steps if you are lazy)You just have to consider that when you install the 2nd, 3rd or any other terminals after the first MT4 installation, you need to change this location to a unique folder name that does not exist already. For instance, if the installation folder for the first MT4 installation is C:\Program Files\Metatrader 4\, the installation folder for other MT4 would be like this:
- C:\Program Files\Metatrader 4 – 1\
- C:\Program Files\Metatrader 4 – 2\
- C:\Program Files\Metatrader 4 – 3\
Steps 2 (Quick): Copy and Paste Multiple MT4
If you have one MT4 terminal installed, you can simply duplicate folders using the copy/paste command and renaming each folder as your wish. You can even use the CTRL+C and CTRL+V commands on your keyboard.
Open the folder wherever your MT4 platform is installed and locate the MT4 installation folder. The name would be “MetaTrader4.” Now what you have to do is select that folder, press the shortcut key to copy and paste to duplicate that folder. Rename it to “MetaTrader4 – 1” and repeat the process until you have the required number of terminals.
Once you have duplicated your MT4 folders you should run each terminal individually and set it up accordingly. Run by double click the metatrader.exe(or any other .exe file) inside the folder.Though, it is easy to setup multiple MT4 but it requires time and effort to learn the program’s intricacies.
