Ever thought of switching forex brokers but it is such a chore to learn how to use their proprietary trading platforms?
Thankfully, for many forex brokers, they offer MT4 platforms. Even if forex brokers have their own proprietary trading platforms, at times, they provide MT4 platforms to supplement their own platforms. Since most retail traders are already using MT4 platforms, it is best for vast majority forex brokers to offer that.
Of course, MT4 platform is user friendly and offers many analytical tools. For customized indicators, you can also download it from FX code base or create it using MQL4 language. If you know how to program, you can create and use your own automated trading program (Expert advisor).
Apart from MT4 desktop platform, MT4 mobile version is also user friendly. If you have a few accounts from different forex brokers, you can search and add the accounts on one interface.
There are many other advantages of using MT4 which you can look it up at Metaquotes.
