MetaTrader 4 for macOS
The trading terminal MetaTrader 4 was initially developed for Windows, but it can be installed to Mac computers as well. In this case you will need the Wine application. It’s a free software that allows 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, launch the Microsoft Windows program files on your Mac OS-run computer.
- Install the MetaTrader platform and run it using the Wine application. To make the process 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.
- Mind, that Windows-run files will be operating on your computer only under the Wine application. Visually the labels of your files will be substituted with a Wine sign.
Please, note that working with Wine is not always stable. Some functions of MetaTrader 4 may be inaccessible. Most frequently the ”Market” section of the platform is not available on computers with a Mac OS operating system.
