Hi Julio,

Good, happy to hear you are getting a few trades.  So, as long as you have a smiley face in the upper right corner of your trading chart window then the Expert Advisors are working.  Here is what you need to know about using other brokers other than FTMO:  The FTMO V6.0 Expert Advisors were created using the FTMO servers historical data.  What you need to be aware of is that all brokers historical data will be somewhat different.  This is because there is no central clearing house where all brokers  / prop firms get their historical data.  As a result each broker / prop firm must go directly to central banks across the world to get their currency conversion data and from that the historical data is developed.  The problem is that not all brokers get their data from exactly the same banks.  As a result there is variations in the historical data.  Having said that please be aware that the FTMO app will show how many trades and profits each Expert Advisor has.  Since the historical data is different with different brokers the number of trades and the profit of each Expert Advisor may be different.

If the broker you are using is not generating any trades you might consider looking for a different broker.  What I have recommended in the past is to open demo accounts with 3 different brokers and see which one gives the best performance.
