Does MetaTrader 4 work on Mac?
MetaTrader 4 is available for Windows only, and there are no plans to release a version of it for Mac. There is an iPhone app available, though, and Mac users can trade using IG’s web trading platform.
What is a VPS?
A virtual private server (VPS) is an online workspace that you can use to remotely access MT4, running concurrently with the version installed on your PC. It is housed in an external server, so it can run even when your PC is turned off, allowing Expert Advisors to operate around the clock.
You can also use your VPS to trade using MetaTrader 4 from any computer, just by logging in to your VPS.
Our VPS is provided by Beeks, and is available completely free of charge to clients who maintain a balance of £5000 or more. Otherwise, it costs £50 per month.
