How to set up a proxy server in MetaTrader 4

MetaTrader 4 is a platform tailored for Forex brokers, offering in-depth stock market analysis across various parameters. This guide will walk you through the process of installing and configuring a proxy server in MetaTrader 4. The platform enables advanced tracking of securities rates, allows copying transactions from seasoned traders, and facilitates the purchase of automated trading robots for meta-trading. However, achieving success in trading requires a stable and uninterrupted internet connection, particularly critical during key trading moments. Additionally, accessing the network from a different country may sometimes be necessary, making the setup of a proxy server a valuable step.
