MetaTrader 4 for iOS: what you need to know
MetaTrader 4 (MT4) is a trading platform that enables you to manage your positions seamlessly and securely. With the MT4 mobile app, you can get exposure to a selection of markets such as forex, indices and commodities through spread betting and contract for difference (CFD) trading, straight from your iPhone or iPad.
Spread bets and CFDs are leveraged products, which means you’ll get full exposure to the underlying market at just a fraction of the price. When trading with leverage, any potential profits and losses are magnified to the full value of the trade, and you might even lose more than your initial deposit.
MT4’s flexible trading systems and advanced technical analysis capabilities creates a customisable environment to suit your unique trading needs and goals. You can view charts, get real-time quotes, review your trading history, and more.
The software was unavailable on the App Store for some time, but it’s since been reinstated, and is popular among traders who are iPhone and iPad users.
To get access to the interface on your iOS device, you need to create an account with an online brokerage. With us, you can trade on the MT4 mobile app through a live account, using real funds, or a demo account that allows you to practise in a risk-free environment with virtual money. You can also download MT4 on other devices, and open a live or demo account to start trading.
