MT4 on Mac

As the title suggests, was wondering what is the best, easiest, cheapest and most reliable way of installing MT4 on a mac?

Any advice appreciated.

Also, is MT4 the one to go for as i did hear there was an MT5.

Thanks and keep up the good work - this is a great site :)

    Thanks for the response Okane. I did see that they recommend playonmac but was just wondering if mt4 was available as a version that didn't require third party software to use it? Sorry, i should have been more specific in my original post.

    If there isn't a way then i guess i can try it through the playonmac route though.

    Cheers :smile:

    By the way, i managed to install meta 5 but the meta 4 thing just aint happening, not sure what the problem is.

    Will i be able to use meta5 as easy? i am a noob and was following your videos Okane, not sure i want to start trying to emulate you while using different software. Should i look elsewhere so i can try and install meta4?

    thanks

    Sorry for the plethora of posts on this..

    If i download mt4 from say, this website here:

    http://www.thinkforex.com/uk/trading-platforms/metatrader-4/mt4-mac

    or here:

    https://www.gomarkets.co.uk/trading-platforms/metatrader-4/metatrader-4-mac/index.html

    will this somehow bias the view i will get because i have downloaded it via a broker? Or will i just have an option to log into another broker when the application loads and then this will still work fine?

    Im just having a nightmare getting the MT4 application to load through the playonmac / wine method.

    Someone please help - i am going mad!!

    Hey. MetaTrader 5 is fine :).
    They are pretty much the same. Why most people use MT4 is because most
    strategies and lots of custom indies are created for MT4. But since you say you wish to trade
    price action trading like me then all you need is candlesticks and the ability to draw lines + stochastic which is
    an standard indicator so no need for MT4 and custom indies anyway!

    Thanks so much for that Okane, that is a great relief off of my shoulders! Was banging my head against the table til 11pm last night trying to figure out why i couldn't get the MT4 installed. i will just go ahead with 5.

    Many thanks for all the advice and your videos - they are really good.

    I know it's frustrating. Check out my trading journal too and let me know if you need anything. I also have
    a price action strategy thread in the strategy room check it out for more info :)
