The 'Trade is disabled' error message appears on the MT4 due to one of the following reasons:
- You haven't made the minimum deposit to activate your trading account. Please read here for more information about the minimum deposit on each account type.
- You have a swap-free enabled account but trying to trade exotic currency pairs or crypto CFDs. Please note that exotic pairs and crypto CFDs are not available for swap-free accounts.
- You have a credit on your account and your account balance is negative. This may be due to your account reaching the credit stop-out level.
- Trading has been disabled for a particular instrument. We may have temporarily or permanently disabled a trading instrument. To check the trade availability of the trading instruments, you can right-click on the instrument in the MT4 market watch area and select 'Specification'.
Please contact us if none of the above reasons apply, and you're still seeing the error message.
