New to FXTM? Here's how to get started on MT4.


MetaTrader 4 is a stand-alone online trading platform that allows you to monitor the markets and manage your trades in real-time. Jam-packed with technical tools and indicators, MT4 is the industry favourite for traders worldwide.

It depends on the device you'd like to trade from. You can choose from PC, Mac, mobile and tablet. Prefer Android? You can download MT4 via Google Play Store. More of an iOS fan? Download it on the Apple App Store. We’ve got more details on MT4 for PC above.

Both MT4 and MT5 are efficient, innovative trading platforms with many features designed to boost your trading. MT4 is often a popular choice with newer traders (and even the pros!) but it all depends on your personal preferences. MT5 does include additional tools such as the Economic Calendar and embedded community chat - but not every trader wants these. You can always try both platforms and see which one works for you.

If you're new to trading, MT4 is a good starting point. It has a clear, simple interface and the graphics are easy to interpret. You can also create Expert Advisors (also known as Trading Robots) to help you develop your trading strategies and identify the latest market trends.

'Add-ons' are extra functions that you can use to customise your platform depending on your own specific trading needs. You can learn more about these on our Trading Tools Overview page.

MT4 indicators are technical analysis tools that can help you to interpret price movements and speculate on how the markets might move next. There are over 30 to choose from!

You can't actually open a MetaTrader demo account, but you can trade on an FXTM account in Demo mode. It's a great way to explore the platform without risking any of your own money.

Every trader is different, but its true that MT4 is the 'comfort zone' of many. As we've mentioned already, it does come with a whole load of tools and lots of opportunity to customise the platform as you wish - which is why some traders don't feel the need to upgrade to the newer MT5.

No, afraid not. You need a trading account that you have opened with a broker, which you then connect to through the MetaTrader platform. Trading on MT4 with an online broker like FXTM does mean you'll have access to other benefits including customer support, rapid execution and educational resources to help you on your way.

No, it is completely free to download. You will need to fund your trading account though to start making trades.
