This guide will help you quickly start trading with the Leprechaun bot on the Forex market in just 5 steps.

Leprechaun bots are free, to activate you only need to open a trading account with the RoboForex broker on which the bot will be traded, write the affiliate code wins when opening the account. After opening a trading account, bots are automatically activated for this account within a minute.

  • Step 1: Register with a broker

    1.1 Registration with a broker

    If you already have a personal account on RoboForex, then skip this step and go to Step 2: Opening a trading account.

    You may have noticed that on the site I indicate two affiliate codes mstk and wins, which may possibly confuse you.

    To register an account on RoboForex, use the affiliate code mstk, in which case you will be included in my 5-level affiliate program and will be able to build your affiliate network deep into mine using Leprechaun robots and this site with training for your partners.

    If you just want to trade and you already have an account on RoboForex, then to open trading accounts use the wins affiliate code, this will activate the Leprechaun bots for your account.

    mstk - for account registration!

    wins - to open a trading account!

    To register an account, follow the affiliate link: https://my.roboforex.com/en/?a=mstk

    On the page that opens, click the "Open an account" button.

    1.2 Verification

    Next, you need to go through verification - a procedure for documenting your identity. This is necessary so that you can withdraw funds from your trading account, for example, to your bank card.

    To complete the verification procedure, you need to confirm your identity (passport verification) and your actual place of residence or address (address verification). This is a standard procedure that all brokers have. You need to upload documents. As a rule, the verification takes place within one day.

    To undergo verification, select the "Profile" item in the main menu and the "Verification" item in the drop-down list

  • Step 2: Opening a trading account

    2.1 Opening a trading account

    There are no restrictions on the activation of Leprechaun robots based on the number of accounts. You can open an unlimited number of accounts for trading Leprechaun robots. You must understand that one account can only be used to trade one version of the Leprechaun robot. If you want to trade several versions of the Leprechaun robot, you will need to open several trading accounts for this, as well as install several trading terminals, because In the terminal you can connect to only one trading account at a time.

    To open a trading account, select "Accounts" in the main menu and select the "Real account" menu item in the drop-down menu.

    Opening a trading account on RoboForex - menu item

    In the form fields, select the trading account parameters as shown in the screenshot. Create a password for your account. Be sure to enter the affiliate code in the "Affiliate code" field: four letters without a dot - wins. Otherwise, the bot will not be automatically activated for this account.

    After filling out the form fields, click the "Confirm" button.

    If you open a trading account before completing the verification procedure, the account opening form will have several more fields: Country, City, Address, Postal Code. Fill them out, they are required. If verification is passed, such fields will not appear when opening an account.

    On the next page you will be provided with information to connect to your trading account: server name, login (account number) and your password. This data will also be sent to your mailbox.

    Attention! Be sure to take note of the server name. To connect to your account, in addition to your login and password, you also need to specify the server name!

    2.2 Replenishment of trading account

    Methods for replenishing a trading account with the RoboForex broker are constantly changing. Therefore, in my images there may be top-up options that are no longer available from the broker, instead you will see others.

    To replenish your trading account, select “Funds” in the main menu and select “Deposit Funds” in the drop-down menu.

    Replenishing a trading account on RoboForex - menu item

    Select the trading account number you want to fund in the "Trade account" field. Next, select the deposit method, for example, I will select the method: “USD Tether (USDT, TRC-20)”. Click the "Deposit funds" button.

    Replenishing a trading account on RoboForex - choosing a replenishment method

    On the next page, the system will offer to generate a unique TRC-20 account address for you. Click the "Generate address" button.

    Attention! This sequence of actions is only for this method of replenishment; for other methods of replenishment the sequence of actions will be different.

    The TRC-20 account address will be generated by the system.

    Top up your trading account on RoboForex - generated TRC-20 address

    You will need to transfer funds to the generated TRC-20 address to replenish your trading account.

    Attention! The broker's methods for depositing and withdrawing funds change periodically. The process of depositing and withdrawing funds may vary and will depend on the deposit/withdrawal method you choose.

    Go to the RoboForex broker website using the link: Open a trading account.

  • Step 3: Register and rent a VPS

    3.1 Register and rent a VPS

    For the bot to work properly, the terminal with the bot must be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (trading of the main trading instruments takes place 5 days a week).

    You can, of course, run a terminal with a bot on your home PC, but this is a bad idea for many reasons, such as: the PC will exhaust its resource 24/7, electricity bills will increase, the electricity in the house may be turned off, the bot will stop working, open transactions will remain without supervision and the deposit will be lost.

    For uninterrupted operation of the terminal with the bot, remote VPS servers are used. In simple words, you rent someone else’s computer and remotely you can do almost everything on it that you can do on your home PC.

    The cost of VPS is low, today you can rent a VPS for $4.5 dollars per month, and if you pay for the year at once, only $3.96 dollars per month.

    I recommend that you use a time-tested, cheap, reliable VPS service with an affiliate program. VPS server for 1 terminal for only $4.5 (MICRO tariff), for five terminals for only $6.59 ( ADVANCED tariff). I use this VPS myself and my partners too.

    Go to the VPS service website using the link: Rent VPS.

    On the VPS service website, select VDS (VIRTUAL DEDICATED SERVER) with the MICRO tariff if you need a server for one trading terminal. Click the "BUY NOW" button.

    On the next page you need to select server parameters.

    Select Payment period for how long you plan to buy the server. You can choose 1 month and then pay for renewal every month or buy immediately for a year at a discount.

    Operating system select Windows-Server-2012-R2

    There is no need to select all other parameters, they will be the same by default as you see in the picture.

    Go through the next steps of renting a server yourself, there are no more technical issues there.

    I use the ADVANCED tariff, which has enough resources to operate five trading terminals. If you want to choose such a tariff, then select the server parameters as shown in the picture below.

    Link to VPS website: Rent VPS.

    Close the connection to the remote server using the cross in the blue panel at the top where the server IP is indicated. The window will close and your connection to the server will be severed, but the server itself will continue to work, which is what we need! Under no circumstances should you log out of Windows on the server as you do on your home PC. The server must be constantly running 24/7. So you just need to disconnect with him using the cross on the blue panel and nothing else!

    Installing and configuring the trading terminal - closing the remote desktop

    We have closed the server's remote desktop window.

    4.3 Automating the connection to the VPS server

    The procedure for connecting to the server with data entry was lengthy, but you can simplify and automate the connection to the server by creating a shortcut on the desktop of your home PC, through which the window for working with the remote server will open automatically.

    Connecting to the server has already been discussed above, let's repeat the steps: press the WIN keys again (the key with the Microsoft flag) + R. Enter the command "mstsc", click "OK", in the next window "Remote Desktop Connection" click on the "Show Options" button.

    A window will open for you to select a location where to save the shortcut and you can specify a name for the shortcut. Name the shortcut, for example “Remote Server”, select the location where the shortcut will be saved, for example “Desktop” and click the “Save” button.

    Installation and configuration of the trading terminal - choosing the location and name of the shortcut

    Our “Remote Server” shortcut will appear on the desktop, and the “Remote Desktop Connection” window can now be closed using a cross. We don't need it anymore. Now we can quickly connect to the VPS automatically by clicking on the “Remote Server” shortcut.

    Installing and configuring the trading terminal - close the connection window

    Let's connect to the remote server through our "Remote Server" shortcut. When you first start it, the “Remote Desktop Connection” window will appear, where you need to check the “Don’t ask me again for connections to this computer” checkbox and click the “Connect” button.

    Installation and configuration of the trading terminal - checkbox - do not display anymore

    This window will no longer be shown when connecting and by clicking on the shortcut you will immediately be taken to the server! We've now made connecting to a remote desktop easier and faster. We're done with automating a quick connection to the server!

    4.4 Install the terminal on a remote server

    Minimize the remote desktop window and make it smaller for convenience.

    Installing and configuring a trading terminal - minimize the VPS window

    Now we need to copy the terminal installation file “roboforex4setup.exe” to the remote desktop.
