MT4 Demo


GTC1

Question

I've been using Pro Real Time in IG  both as a demo and live account and am able to select PRT from the blue platform  button with the drop down menu. I want to try MT4 and have downloaded it a few times but it is nowhere to be seen in my IG account like PRT is. I'm clearly doing something wrong and would appreciate some help with this. many thanks

Hi, mt4 is a desktop platform not a web based platform so if you downloaded IG's mt4 the exe file will be in your downloads folder. Just double click and follow instructions, a icon will also be placed on your desktop. 

You can open a demo straight away from the platform, for a live account go to your My IG web page and click 'add an account' and select mt4 cfd or sb.

Hi,thanks for the response.I've downloaded MT4 and have a demo account. I added an MT4 SB account  and its showing on my IG dashboard but I was expecting to be able to go to the MT4 platform from my dashboard as i did when using Pro Real Time. If that isn't the case how do i get to see the MT4 charts in my IG account?

Thanks

prt is web based same as IG's own charting package but you can't access mt4 from a web page, the mt4 charting package sits on your own computer and is linked to IG via IG's data servers.

Thanks - I understand now - nearly. So I have MT4 on my desktop and I have an IG Demo account working fine. I have added MT4 in my IG account and its sitting there in my dashboard with funds in it so how do I bring MT4 together with my  IG MT4  account to create a live trading environment ?

HI, your login and password are sent to you via 2 separate emails from IG.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead. USDOLLAR (DXY) WEEKLY PRICE CHART – APRIL 28, 2022 {{THE_FUNDAMENTALS_OF_BREAKOUT_TRADING}} What is your view on the US Dollar – bullish or bearish?   Apr 28, 2022 | DailyFX Nick Cawley, Strategist
