This is a great Expert Advisor for those traders that are constantly on the move and do not have time to regularly check there account to see how their trades are doing. Email Alert EA will send out messages to a pre determined email address or mobile device with any trade activation details, amendments and closures.
This classic Expert Advisor for the Metatrader 4 platform will alert the account holder of any changes on the account. Trade orders that have been activated, modified or closed will be sent directly to the account holder with all the relevant information. Ideal for the on-the- move Forex trader.
MT4 platform does not allow to run multiple EA’s on the same chart, that is why you will need to open additional chart where you can run Email Alert EA (or some other EA that you need). This simple trick allows you to run unlimited number of EA’s on the same currency pair. There is no limit to how many charts you can open on the MT4.
MetaTrader 4 Client Terminal build 646 now can send alerts and emails from MQL4 applications (like Email Alert EA) to Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo and other mailboxes. Set the target mailbox in Email tab of the terminal settings.
