Downloading Metatrader 4 or 5
Download the Metatrader 4 or 5 (MT4/MT5) platform on your device. If you're using PC or MAC. Directly download the platform from the broker's website. If you're using an Andriod or IOS device, go to the Play store/App store and download Metatrader 4 or 5 from Metaquotes. Make sure that if you've opened an MT4 account, download MT4. If you've opened an MT5 account, download MT5. MT4 accounts can't login to MT5 platforms, vice versa.
Logging in to your Trading Account
Login to your device with your live/demo account. Go to "file" on the top left of the platform, then select "login to trade account". Make sure to use the correct ID account number, server and password. Your ID and server will be sent to your email. If you're using the mobile version, kindly select the correct broker and server to login successfully.
