Now Apple users can enjoy the full range of MetaTrader advantages for Forex and CFD trading:
Admiral Markets now offers Mac OS X users the full integration into the world of trading! It’s never been easier to install MetaTrader 4 or MetaTrader 5 on your MacBook.
You can start by downloading the MetaTrader version you trade with for your Mac:
For Mac OS MT4 System Requirements:
Mac OS X 10.6 and above.
Download the .dmg file and open it. You will see a screen like the one depicted above. Drag the AdmiralMarketsMT4 file into the applications folder. The installation will start automatically.
Your MetaTrader 4 is now installed and started automatically. Log in with your live or demo log-in details. In the background, the Trader’s Room started in your default browser. This feature was introduced to MetaTrader recently and will be carried out as long as no account is set up. As soon as you set up your account, this feature will be stopped.
Trading on your MacBook works just like on a Windows PC. Open the MetaTrader standard order form by pressing “f9” and “fn”. You can make use of the one-click trading tool (pictured above) by clicking on the little triangle in the upper left corner of the chart or by right clicking in the chart and choosing ‘one-click trading alt+T’. Please note: You’ll have to accept the one-click trading tool conditions before you can use it. In case you accidentally declined the conditions or closed the window, just open the window displaying the conditions again as follows: Extras > Options > Trading > One Click Trading > Tick the box.
Installation of EAs, indicators and scripts
To install additional tools like Expert Advisors (EAs), indicators or scripts, open the program folder and right click on AdmiralMarketsMT4. In the menu that opens, choose Show Package Contents. Now you see the entire content of the installation file. Double click on “drive_c” to get to the MetaTrader structure on your MAC.
Now, when you see the usual MetaTrader file structure you can place your EAs, indicators and scripts.
To trade Forex using MetaTrader for Mac, you can sign up for a live trading account with Admiral Markets. We also offer you a free demo accounts to try out our services and test your trading strategy.
