Australian online forex broker IC Markets said on Monday it has adopted the web version of the MetaTrader 4 (MT4) web trading paltform.
“We’re thoroughly impressed with the MetaQuotes WebTrader and recommend you all save this link in your favorites for fast and easy access to your account in the future”, the broker said in a statement published on its blog.
IC Markets also uses the mobile applicatons of the MT4 platforms for Android and iOS and the desktop versions for Mac and Windows devices. In addition, it also allows trading via the platforms MetaTrader 5 (MT5) and cTrader (desktop, mobile and web), as well as via the FIX Application Program Interface (API) and IC Markets Multi Account Manager (MAM) software applications.
Also on Monday, another forex broker, UK-licensed One Financial Markets said it adopted the MT4 web-based platform. Other brokers that offer the web version of the trading platform include brokerage group Alpari, Cyprus-licensed forex broker XM and its Belize-registered peer FX Choice, among others.
MT4, available both as a desktop and mobile application, as well as a web version, is the worlds’ most widely-used trading platform. With its outstanding customized charting package, auto-trading capabilities and signal copying, the platform is user-friendly and even novice traders can easily find their way around it. Traders can download ready-made or create their own automated trading strategies (Expert Advisors, or EAs), scripts and custom indicators in the MQL programming language.
MetaQuotes, the developer of the platform, launched the MT4 web platform in September this year and received orders from more than 100 companies for it within the first month. The web version’s interface is near identical to that of the desktop platform. The MT4 web platform runs across all web browsers and is compatible with all operating systems, being it for desktop or mobile devices. Unlike the platform’s other versions, it does not require the download or install any software.
IC Markets, headquartered in Sydney, is a provider of online forex and contracts for difference (CFDs) trading services for individual traders, money managers and institutional customers. It is regulated by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).
