The importance of fully understanding your trading platform cannot be overstated. As traders this is the tool we use to profit, to make money. If we don´t understand how to utilize it at full capacity we are starting out limping in the first place.

There´s some traders out there that only use this platform for data and they execute with their brokers, which is most common with binary option traders. But even they have to take these lessons seriously in order to advance in their trading careers.

  • Why is the MT4 platform so popular?

This platform is so popular with forex traders because it´s reliable, free and open sourced. This means that not only you can use it to trade demo and live for free but also you can backtest on it, find it available for any broker you can think of and because it´s open sourced you can look and find for literally any indicator you can imagine.

In this course we will not teach you how to code those indicators in mql4 because let´s face it, we are traders not coders. Bu we will show you where to look for them, how to add them to your platforms and how to drag and drop them to your charts.

  • Will these lessons be useful for any type of meta trader software?

No, these lessons are specific for mt4 users. MT5 users can also learn the basics here but sometimes the process might from version to version. We recommend sticking with the MT4 if you are going to be using any meta quote product. The reason is because the MT5 platform is a little more heavy and confusing if you come from an MT4 background; which we all do.

  • Are we going to learn about the mobile platform?

The mobile app for MT4 has practically the same feature and functions that the desktop platform but we will not be teaching how to trade out of it because we believe that if you are serious about your trading you are going to be using a full desk setup t trade. You can use the mobile app to monitor open positions at off hours but you will always execute through the desktop platform.
