How to install an EA/Trading Robot on cTrader?

Updated on May 8, 2024
  • Download the EA files and save them to a folder for easy access. Make sure the EA file is in .algo format. 
  • Open cTrader and locate the “Automate” menu on the left-hand side of the platform. 
  • In the “Automate” menu, you’ll see a list of installed robots, usually populated by sample EAs. 
  • To add a new robot, double-click on the downloaded .algo file. Choose to open the file with cTrader if prompted. This action will install all necessary files in cTrader. 
  • The expert advisor will now appear in the “Automate” window list, and you’ll receive confirmation of its successful installation as a notification. 
  • Click on the “+” button and select a chart to which you want to add the EA. 
  • Activate the robot by clicking on the play button. It will start running and perform its functions as the market conditions dictate. 
  • To remove the EA from your chart, click on the three-dot menu on the EA, hover over “remove instance,” and select the chart from which you want to remove it.
