Why do I need two passwords?

When you trade on MT4 with us, you need one password to log in and trade on the MT4 platform, and one to log in to the admin portal.

In the admin portal, you can fund your MT4 account quickly and easily, manage your passwords and view your account balance. You can also view your open positions.
 
You admin portal password is the one you specify in our online MT4 application form (or your existing Next Generation password if you already have an account with us).

Your MT4 password can then be set up within the admin platform.

How to log in after the first time

1. Launch the MT4 platform. The icon shortcut should be available on your desktop. The MT4 platform will open on your screen.

2. In the ‘Navigator’ section on the left of the platform you should see the account you first logged in with. The Navigator window can be toggled on and off using Ctrl+N.

3. Select (double-click) the account you want to access and enter the following details:
    a) Login (this is your MT4 account ID)
    b) Your MT4 password 

4. You should now be logged in. You can verify this by looking at the ‘Journal’ and the icon in the status bar at the bottom.​

How to fund your account

Fund your MT4 account through the admin portal. Currently our mobile app doesn’t support funding, so you need do this on a PC or Mac.

Note: Your MT4 platform and the admin portal have different passwords which are not kept in sync.
