Make the most out of MT4

Join our free seminar and find out how you can make better use of MT4.

With sessions from three MT4 experts covering advanced trading tools, how to improve your discipline, and the current FX market outlook. 

During this seminar you will:

  • Pick up new trading ideas and strategies
  • Be shown techniques to help you develop your FX trading discipline
  • See how a leading FX analyst views the current outlook
  • Explore how human behaviour can undermine trading performance, and how to mitigate this
  • Discover the IG technology that can enhance your MetaTrader

Do I need an IG account?

If you don’t have an MT4 account with IG, we recommend that you open one before the seminar — it costs nothing, and gives you the chance to experience the additional MT4 technology you get with us. 

To try MT4 with IG, open an account, log in to My IG, and go to the ‘live accounts’ tab. You’ll find MT4 for both CFDs and spread betting by clicking ‘add another account’.
