Signalator Autotrader Errors with "errX" messages

We have configured an autotrader so that you can get a maximum information about your subscription and settings. An autotrader connects to Signalator website to get information about your subscription and to get trade details. If there are any errors with either your subscription configuration or with a trade alert, you will get an error followed by errX code within an "Experts" tab. Further you will find descriptions and solution for each of available error.

The currency pair is incorrect, change to Symbol

Reason: Saved symbol is not the one you attached an autotrader to.
Solution: A) Check a currency symbol of a chart you attached an autotrader to. If it is not common, e.g. EURUSDecn, add this value to cursymbol field. B) If you changed a currency symbol to a correct value and still get this error, switch the checkcurrency option to false.

Questions and Answers

Q. I receive alerts but trades are not opening. What shall I do?
A. If you receive no errors at all, please check whether you have added https://www.signalator.com to the list of URL within Options tab -> Expert Advisors -> Allow WebRequest. If this is the case check Experts and Journal tab within your trading platforms for any information about your trading. Copy these results and send it to Signalator Customer Support.

Q. I have updated SL / TP levels but they automatically are reversed to original levels. How do I overcome it?
A. Within an autotrader there is an option "stopsmanage". Set this value to true. Autotrader won't be changing your SL / TP levels. Please note: these levels won't be updated automatically until you set the value back to false.

Q. Trades are not closed, are not updated or are not opened and there are no errors at all. What to do?
A. Restart your trading platform. Sometimes it is required to close and open a trading platform to make everything working.

Q. I don't have a metatrader account, is it still possible to automate my trading?
A. Yes, for an additional fee Signalator trades will be executing trades on your account. So you don't do anything at all.

Q. I set one open lot size and trades are opened with a different size, why is that?
A. Signalator autotrader is connected to the Signalator website. By default lot size amount is taken from your personal page setting. If you would like to use a lot size stored within an autotrader, switch ppagelot to false.
