MetaTrader 4 for Android: what you need to know
MetaTrader 4 (MT4) for Android gives you access to a variety of features that are designed to enhance your trading experience, straight from your preferred mobile device that runs this operating system. These include one-click trading, customisable trading layouts, real-time quotes, your trading history, and more.
To get started with MT4 on your Android device, you need to create an online brokerage account. We empower you to trade on MT4 with real funds, using a live account, or practise with virtual money in a risk-free environment, using a demo account.
Spread bets and CFDs are leveraged financial derivatives. Trading with leverage means you’ll only commit a deposit for full exposure to the underlying market – but any potential profits and losses are amplified to the full trade value. You could even incur a loss that’s larger than your initial deposit. So, managing your risk accordingly is vitally important.
