Topic: Multiple EAs in MT4 forced to share S/L and T/P levels - any fixes?

I have multiple EAs running on the same pairs in MT4, and they are all being forced to share the stop loss (S/L) and take profit (T/P) levels of whatever EA first opens a position!

All my EAs have unique magic numbers. All of my EAs have adding and reducing disabled.

I am running on the Forex.com version of MT4, trading in the USA.

The problem occurs on both demo accounts and live accounts.

Has anyone else encountered this problem? Any ideas for possible solutions?

Thanks!

You have the answer in your post already - it is trading in the USA. Regulation stuff, nothing more to do than changing your broker. If you are in the US, then it's a bit of trouble...

Yes, thanks footon, I confirmed with Forex.com that this behavior is the result of US FIFO regulations. It applies to individual accounts. Brokers allow multiple accounts (a small number, usually less than 5), but this is still a severe regulatory limitation for anyone hoping to use a large portfolio of FSB strategies trading on the same currency pair.
