Trading with MT4 on macOS

Forex traders around the globe are a diverse set of people and naturally have differing preferences over the computer operating systems they would like to trade with. In the Forex market a trading platform that is Mac friendly is still not commonplace and options are limited.

Apple users often spend time setting up complex emulation software to get a Windows trading platform to work on their Mac or trying to find a good web-based alternative. In some cases Mac users simply cannot get their favourite trader to work, or if they can they discover their broker will not provide them support should something go wrong.

The XGLOBAL MT4 for Mac software is however the perfect solution for Apple users with the desire to trade FX with their Mac. Traders simply run our MT4 for Mac installation package that installs MetaTrader 4 on any modern Mac with the full support of XGLOBAL Markets. The platform provides the full range of features you will receive when trading with Windows desktop and at the same time you will receive all the benefits of trading with XGLOBAL Markets.
