The trading platform at your disposal will be the MetaTrader 4 (MT4), one of the most popular forex and CFDs trading platform online. You can access the MT4 platform in two different ways: desktop or mobile. You will not be able to access MT4 through your browser only. MetaTrader 4 needs to be downloaded, either on your desktop or mobile device.
However, it is important to note that MT4 is a trading platform created for more advanced traders. If you are a beginner, the MT4 platform may appear complex with too many tools and features that make little sense to you. Unfortunately, ATFX does not prove users with a simpler, beginner’s option. Usually, forex brokers like to provide one simple web trader for beginners, and MT4 for more advanced traders, so this is definitely a feature that is lacking when it comes to trading with ATFX.
Each ATFX platform is outlined below.
If you are using a PC or laptop, you can download the platform directly on your device. MT4 is a powerful trading software and cannot be accessed simply through your web browser like other platforms.
If you prefer trading on-the-go through your smartphone or tablet, ATFX gives you the option to download their trading app. This is a convenient solution, because it allows you check your open positions while you’re out of the house and never miss a trading opportunity.
The MT4 platform is available to download on both Android and Apple operating systems (via Google Play or the App Store).
