MetaTrader 4 Mobile: Features of the Mobile Terminal

In the modern world, we can’t imagine our lives without smartphones. Now, almost all sites and programs can run on phones. In such reality, it was hardly possible to believe that mobile Forex trading can become an exception. After some period of scrupulous work, developers renewed the mobile terminal MetaTrader 4 version to a fully operational state. Among the renovations are a possibility to perform graphical analysis, improvement of many other functions, and correction of the majority of errors.

It should be noted that the versions for iPhone and smartphones for Android are almost similar. Mobile terminals can be downloaded both from the AppStore for Ios and Google Play Market for devices running on Android.

Working With MetaTrader 4 for Smartphones

The application starts, like any other. After entering the login and password and logging into the account, the application immediately opens the menu where the quotes are displayed. In order to open a new account, you need to go to the settings. Here, you will need to select the tab “Accounts” and go to the menu where you can select or add a new account. In order to add a new account, you need to click on the plus that you can see in the upper corner of the screen on the right and choose “Open a demo account”, or connect to an existing account.

If you decide to go to an existing account, you will be asked to enter the name of the campaign in which it is opened, or choose from the list of campaigns that you entered earlier. If you decide to open a new demo account, you will need to enter your data. In this case, you can enter any data, most importantly, that they would fall under the format required by the application.

After the demo account is open, the quotes will be downloaded, and the application will be ready to start working. As it has been already mentioned, after registration you will immediately see the overview screen of the current quotes for currency pairs. Not all currency pairs are represented here. If you need any additional tools, then you need to perform a number of simple actions. If you click on the pencil in the left upper corner of the screen, you can delete or edit any currency pairs you do not need.


MetaTrader 4 is praised for:

  • a large number of timeframes – time intervals of the graph (there are 21 of them in the terminal already), so you can choose any one that is the most suitable even for the experienced trader;
  • ease of creating bots (robot experts) – now you do not need to have advanced programming skills;
  • the possibility of trading in one click;
  • an open application store in which you can buy proven trading strategies for automatic trading, or sell your developments;
  • speed;
  • the saving capacity in the storage of quotations, for example, the minute history of a currency pair for a decade fits in 10 Mb.

Nevertheless, those traders who did not work for MetaTrader 4 obviously should start working with the fifth version, as since 2010 – after the release of MetaTrader 5 – it has already been worked through, and minor flaws were corrected.

Features of Trading on Mobile Forex Terminals

At present, with the development of highly innovative technologies, the trading market has become easily accessible to all. Access to financial markets on their own PCs and mobile devices allowed traders to trade at home, at work, and on the move. Today this is only a matter of preference. Mobile trading platforms provide almost the same functions as the similar platforms installed on a PC.

The Functionality Of The Mobile Terminal

“Mobile trading terminal” is a platform, which can be installed on a mobile device. While using the system, the traders can:

  • monitor the quotations of instruments, trade daily, conduct analysis, etc.
  • manage the account,
  • place orders, and
  • track the trading history on the phone as simple as on the PC.

Features of Mobile Trading Terminal

Such terminals are available for mobile devices with various operating systems, such as Android, iOS, and Windows Mobile. Naturally, their design is different from ones designed for PCs, and they are inferior to the usual PC terminal by the number of functions. The mobile trading terminal has a limited number of technical indicators, does not have either chart templates or percentage charts, and it does not have the function of creating personal composite instruments (PCI).

For the effective trade, the professional level of terminal development is extremely important, because the conditions for trade and analysis should be convenient. In addition, when the traders select the platform for trading, they pay attention that the terminal must provide many professionals tools. Thus, the number of trading instruments depends on the company chosen by the trader.
