Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Before deciding to trade foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. You could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage.

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.
