January 31, 2019 17:31 UTC

With Admiral Markets, installing MetaTrader 4 on Mac OS is very easy. You don't need any emulator or Windows system. You just have to download the free trading software MetaTrader 4 today.

Admiral Markets lets you natively use MetaTrader 4, even with a demo account.

MT4 MAC OS X – Features

MetaTrader 4 Mac isn't different from MetaTrader 4 Windows. Admiral Markets has done everything necessary to provide you with an experience as close as possible to the one on Windows. You have access to most of the features available on a standard MT4 forex platform, including:

  • Real-time forex quotes MT4 Mac OS
  • Forex trading signals MT4 Mac
  • Several MT4 Mac time frames
  • Unlimited number of MT4 Mac charts
  • Customizable MT4 Mac indicators
  • One-click trading and much more!

It should still be remembered that it is difficult to emulate expert advisors on Mac OS. Therefore, the best is to avoid the use of custom indicators and trading robots on your MetaTrader 4 Mac platform.

How to install MT4 Mac OS X?

It is very easy to install the MetaTrader 4 MAC OS X trading platform. The process is the same as the installation of any other forex software not listed on the AppStore.

Download MetaTrader 4 MAC OS for free with Admiral Markets. It is an application without a Windows emulator, quite heavy, which can reach up to 200 MB depending on the version.

Once MetaTrader 4 Mac has been downloaded from the Admiral Markets forex broker website, you can open the file and drag-and-drop it into the Applications folder.

Once your MetaTrader 4 Mac is installed, you can simply launch the MT4 Mac investment platform in your Mac OSX applications.

It is important to note that this application does not come from the AppStore, so you must allow applications not recognized by Apple on your Mac. To do this, click on the Apple icon in the upper-left corner of your screen and select "System Preferences". Then, go to "Security and Privacy". Edit the General tab by clicking the padlock in the lower-left corner of the window and enter your password. Finally, select "Anywhere" under the text "Allow applications downloaded from".

Automatic trading on MT4 Mac

Expert advisors do not always work as expected on Mac, that's why the best is to check the reliability of each one of them you wish to install. You can learn more about how to install expert advisors on the Mac OS version of MetaTrader 4 below.

Admiral Markets provides its MetaTrader Supreme Edition through expert advisors. It is not available for the Mac OS version of MetaTrader 4. Admiral Markets is one of the only forex brokers to provide the MT4 Mac trading platform free of charge, for demo and real accounts.

Installation of EAs, indicators, and scripts on MT4 Mac

To install additional trading tools such as expert advisors, indicators or scripts, open the application folder and right-click on Admiral Markets MT4 MAC. From the drop-down menu, choose "Show Package Contents". You can now see the entire content of the installation file. Double-click on "drive_c" to get the MetaTrader 4 structure on your Mac.

Once the usual MetaTrader 4 Mac file structure is visible, you can place your expert advisors, indicators and scripts on the MT4 MAC CFD platform.

Please note that the installation of the MetaTrader 4 Mac OS trading station via Wine and WineBottler does not guarantee a stable performance of the expert advisors. That is why we recommend you to invest in parallel desktop applications if you plan to do automatic forex trading.
