When it comes to trading platforms, few companies have managed to gain the traction that MetaQuotes has. Their MetaTrader 4 (MT4) platform has been around for over a decade now and is by far the best-known and most-used platform in online trading. The overwhelming success of MT4 has come down to a number of factors, all of which have contributed to making it the household name that it is today.
Firstly, earlier versions of MT4 had already gained enough of a following, so that when it was finally released during the early boom of the online forex industry in 2005, it became absolutely imperative for brokers to start offering it alongside their own proprietary trading platforms. Secondly, by allowing for the creation of third party scripts, MetaQuotes helped create a vibrant MT4 community, which has helped to spread the popularity of the platform, as well as ensuring that there are many competent MT4 developers out there, many of whom have become invaluable to online brokers. Finally, by incorporating an algorithmic trading component to MT4, MetaQuotes was extremely forward-thinking and effectively inspired an entirely new industry that centres around the creation, back-testing, refinement and effective deployment of trading algorithms for retail traders.
MT4 is renowned for being easy to use and thus having a very gentle learning curve for beginners, while also being extremely powerful beneath the hood and possessing hidden depths that keep more advanced traders returning to it. It combines attractive, intuitive layouts with speed, security and a host of indicators and chart overlay functions. Try MT4 today with unbeatable STP execution from Swiss Markets.
