What is MetaTrader 4?

CMC Markets

MetaTrader 4 (MT4), developed by MetaQuotes, is one of the most popular forex trading platforms worldwide. In addition to FX, you can also trade CFDs across a range of popular indices and commodities.

MT4 allows you to use automated programs called Expert Advisors (EAs), which monitor the markets and trade on your behalf. You can build your own program or use an existing EA.

Download the platform to your desktop computer, and trade on the move with the MT4 app for iPhone, iPad and Android.
