Understanding Trading Platforms

A trading platform or trading terminal is a special software through which traders and investors can perform trading transactions in the financial market using their desktop computer/laptop or smartphone.

MetaTrader 4 (MT4) and MetaTrader 5 (MT5) are the two trading platforms available to AMarkets clients for retail trading. Today, MT4 and MT5 are considered the most popular terminals to trade CFDs. Both platforms are developed by MetaQuotes Software.

To understand which trading platform is more suitable for you, use the feature table Comparison of MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5.

Accounts opened for MetaTrader 4 are compatible with this version of the trading platform only. You cannot connect to your MT4 account using the MT5 trading platform and vice versa. If you are going to use both platforms in your trading, please open separate trading accounts in your Personal area and install both trading terminals on your device.
