MetaTrader 4 for macOS
The client terminal MetaTrader4 can be installed and applied to Mac computers, though initially it was developed for Windows. You can install the MT4 platform on a computer running on macOS using the Wine application. Wine is a free software that aims to allow computer programs developed for Microsoft Windows to run on Unix-like operating systems. The Wine version for Mac OS is also available.
- Download the Wine application and install it on your computer.
- When the installation is over, you may launch the Microsoft Windows program files on your macOS-run computer.
- Then install the MetaTrader4 platform and run it using the Wine application. To make it more convenient, you may copy all the necessary files (advisors, indicators, scripts and other trade robots) from your Mac operating system to a corresponding directory of the MT4.
- Remember, the Windows-run files will be operating on your computer only under the Wine application. Visually it will be visible when the labels of your files will be substituted with a Wine sign
Please note, that Wine is not a totally stable application, that’s why when working on MetaTrader4 on a computer with a macOS operating system, certain functions of the trading platform may be inaccessible. Traders mark, in particular, the breaches in the work of the ”Market” section of the platform.
