MetaTrader 5 (MT5)

The following video shows how to connect Journalytix™ to MT4. The process is exactly the same for MT5, but the EA name is JTJournalytixMT5.



Note - if you don't see the Expert Advisor "JTJournalytixMT5" in MT5, do the following:


Close MT5 and try installing daytradr again

Contact us and tell us which version of MT5 you have. The different versions for different brokerages install in different folders, so there's a chance the installer won't catch one of the versions. That's something we can resolve really quickly.


The Jigsaw Platform Bridge™ allows daytradr to connect directly with the MT5 Platform. There is no need to set up a connection profile in connection Manager for MT5, there is also no need to download instruments for MT5


There is no setup on the daytradr side for MT5 connectivity. It will detect that it is there automatically.


On the MT5 side, please follow these steps:

Step 1

Go to Tools -> Options -> Expert Advisors and make sure "Allow DLL Imports" is checked:




Step 2

Add the Expert Advisor "JTJournalytixMT5" to ANY chart in MT%. It does not matter which symbol it is. This is just to run the code that will pass data to daytradr.




You will see the JTJournalytixMT5 EA is running as it will be visible in the top right hand corner of the chart.




Leave this EA and daytradr running at all times. Do not add the EA to more than 1 chart. It is not necessary.
