Why aren't my MT4 charts working?

Your charts may need updating. If you see a message saying ‘waiting for update’ when you first log in, close your charts and go to the ‘marketwatch’ panel. Right click and select ‘show all’, then open a new chart from there. You can also drag and drop one market names on to a chart. 

You can also check our platform status page to ensure MT4 is up and running.
