  • What is MetaTrader 4?

    MetaTrader 4, commonly referred to as MT4, is a widely used electronic trading platform primarily designed for trading in the forex market. It was developed by MetaQuotes Software and was first released in 2005. MT4 has gained significant popularity among traders and brokers due to its user-friendly interface, comprehensive charting tools, technical analysis capabilities and automated trading features.

    MT4 provides various charting options, allowing traders to analyse price movements and trends using different timeframes, indicators and drawing tools. Traders can also apply a wide range of technical indicators to help them make more informed trading decisions, customise their trading environment and execute trades with a single click.

  • What's the difference between MT4 and MT5?

    MT4 and MT5 are trading platforms developed by MetaQuotes Software, each with distinct features. MT4 is primarily tailored for forex trading, featuring comprehensive technical indicators and charting tools. It allows hedging, where traders can have multiple positions in both buy and sell directions.

    MT4’s MQL4 programming language is also more suitable for creating custom indicators and automated trading strategies. In contrast, MT5 offers a broader range of tradable assets, including stocks, commodities and cryptocurrencies. It introduces advanced charting options, more technical indicators and an economic calendar.

    Ultimately, the decision between MT4 and MT5 depends on your preferences and the asset classes you wish to trade.
