Download MT4 for Mac
Here's how to download and install MT4 for Mac that's compatible with all OS versions, including the latest one.
First, click the button below to download MT4 for Mac for free from FP Markets' website. We recommend this version because it's compatible with all macOS versions and brokers. Create a free no-obligation account in under a minute for your download.
This version comes with complimentary trading signals, in the form of an optional Trading Central plugin. Trading Central scans the market daily for trading opportunities and recommends the best ones directly within MetaTrader(1). It could inspire new trading ideas, or affirm existing ones.
Once you've downloaded the app, drag the MetaTrader 4 icon over to the "Applications" folder to install the app.
If your Macbook is on macOS Big Sur and above (11+), you may run into the following error message on your first installation attempt: "MetaTrader is damaged and can't be opened". If so, try the following instructions, which helped up fix the problem:
- Open the Terminal, which comes installed with every Mac. If you're unsure where to look, enter "Terminal" in your Mac's search bar to find the app.
- Next, copy and paste the following command into the Terminal, and remember to add a space at the very end: sudo xattr -d com.apple.quarantine
- Before you press "Enter", drag the MetaTrader 4 icon from the Applications folder over to the Terminal. This will automatically append the path to your MT4 installation to the previous command.
- Finally, press "Enter" to run the command and fix your MT4 installation.
- Double click on the MetaTrader 4 icon to launch the programme.
Finally, fund your trading account with FP Markets to trade on raw spreads from 0.0 pips across hundreds of instruments. You may also access leverage up to 1:500. Start trading from a low $100 deposit. However, you may want to deposit upwards of $1,000 for a free VPS hosted from its New York data centre (low monthly trading volume requirements apply).
