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 MT4 to your own specific trading needs.

MT4 add-ons range from technical indicators like Bollinger Bands for volatility to plugins like Dynamic Leverage for tailored risk management. They also include features such as one-click trading, integration with live news feeds, and export of real-time data for analysis.

Developed by brokers and software developers, these tools aim to enhance the trading experience for individual traders.

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 open a MetaTrader demo account, but you can trade on an Alpari 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 it's true that MT4 is the 'comfort zone' for many. MT4 comes with a wide selection of tools and the ability to customise the platform as you wish - which is why some traders don't feel the need to upgrade to the newer MT5.

You need a trading account with a broker, which you then connect to through the MetaTrader platform. Trading on MT4 with an online broker like Alpari does mean you'll have access to other benefits including customer support, rapid execution, and educational resources to help you on your way.

MetaTrader 4 is completely free to download. You’ll need to fund your trading account though to start making trades.
