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.

Step 2

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 worked for us:

  1. 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.
  2. Next, copy and paste the following command into the Terminal, and remember to add a space at the very end: sudo xattr -d
  3. 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.
  4. Finally, press "Enter" to run the command and fix your MT4 installation.
  5. Double click on the MetaTrader 4 icon to launch the programme.
