In this article, we will explore the common reasons behind the 'Trade is Disabled' notification, provide insights, and offer step-by-step solutions to ensure you can resume your trading activities seamlessly. 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 can review the comprehensive list of all accessible instruments along with their respective groups here.
- 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.
You can review your trading account balance and trading credit either through MetaTrader or by accessing your MyXFTM Dashboard. Navigate to My Accounts> Accounts Overview, and click on your trading account number for details.
- 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'.
