How To Optimize MT4

Here are common ways to optimize MT4 performance that theoretically it should reduce the RAM and CPU usage. This guide is best use if you’re trading automatically on your MT4 because the MT4 will render lesser candle than usual and you will miss the notification setting.

  1. Reduce MT4 chart bars. Go to: Tools -> Options (or [CTRL]+[O]). Charts tab and there change “Max bars in history” & “Max bars in charts” to “1”. Also make sure all options are un-checked, even “Show trade levels” & “Show OHLC” should be un-checked. You won’t be watching your charts on VPS so you don’t need those functions.
  2. Disable MT4 sounds. Go to: Tools -> Options (or [CTRL]+[O]). Events tab and un-check “Enable”.
  3. Hide all unnecessary symbols (those that you don’t trade). In the Market Watch section of your MT4 - select the symbol, right click and choose “Hide”.
  4. Close all unnecessary charts. Rendering new bars on the charts take most of computing resources so we want to reduce that to the minimum.
  5. Reduce MT4 chart bars. Go to: Tools -> Options (or [CTRL]+[O]). Charts tab and there change “Max bars in history” & “Max bars in charts” to “1”. Also make sure all options are un-checked, even “Show trade levels” & “Show OHLC” should be un-checked. You won’t be watching your charts on VPS so you don’t need those functions.

After that you should restart your MetaTrader 4 terminal in order for the changes to take effect.
