Why do I see the message "Trade flow is busy" when I try to make a transaction in MetaTrader 4 / MetaTrader 5?
The message "Trade context is busy" appears when an attempt to make a transaction is unsuccessful. This may happen, for example, when a client places a second order before receiving the results of the first one. The cause is commonly a temporary loss of connection to the server. When you lose your connection, the order will be placed in your client order queue. While the order has yet to be filled, any attempt to make another transaction will be met with the message above.
To clear the queue, you can relaunch the terminal.
