The MetaTrader platform has been developed by MetaQuotes to give both experienced and novice traders an advantage in the trading room by offering live quotes, real-time charts, in-depth news and many other features that undeniably improve trading conditions.
A key feature and part of the success of MT4 is the availability of the bespoke MetaTrader programming language – MQL. This allows users to program custom indicators and Expert Advisors with ease. Expert Advisors (EA’s) are automated trading strategy robots that trade the FX market 24/5 without user intervention. MQL also allows for full customisation including advanced charting.
