Most Forex traders do not know that MetaTrader 4 trading terminal can’t run more than one Expert Advisor on the same chart.

When you launch or restart MT4, it might run live update automatically and restart without any prompt. I am sure you have seen this before, which sometimes is annoying. MetaQuotes are constantly improving their software and roll out these updates quite often lately.

Many times when you start your MT4 just for a quick script or indicator test it is quite annoying to see that MT4 is forcibly restarted without your knowledge to do an update.
