First of all you will need to open an account(demo or real/live) with LMFX to start trading with LMFX.
If you have already opened an account and made a deposit, you can now start trading through its trading platform, MT4.
LMFX offers MT4 as its trading platform, the broker does not offer different trading platform but only MT4.
You can trade all financial instruments offered by LMFX in one account, so you do not need to open several accounts to trade different financial instruments.
FYI, LMFX offers Forex currency pairs, Commodities, Energies, Index CFDs and Stock CFDs.
MetaTrader4 is often referred as MT4.
It is the most popular trading platform in the world, and many brokers provide financial services through the platform.
You can use MT4 with 4 different devices.
- Windows PC
- Android devices
- iOS devices(iPhone, iPad)
- Web Version
Unfortunately LMFX does not offer MT4 for MAC version, so in case you are using MAC PC, you may want to use the MT4 WebTrader or other devices.
MT4 itself is built for Windows PC but not for MAC, so even if a broker offers MT4 which is compatible with MAC devices, sometimes some tools are not functional or receive error message by some reason.
If you have only MAC PC, you are recommended to use windows programs which you can run in MAC.
But still using Windows would be the best option for MT4 traders.
MT4 for Windows Desktop
Installed version of MT4 would be the most popular one in the world.
With MT4 windows, you can use all trading tools provided by MetaQuotes and other options like EA, Indicators and exporting/importing data would all be available.
Each MT4 trading platform(windows, Android, iOS devices and webtrader) has got different tools available but the windows version should have got all of them in it.
You will need to install the trading platform first to use the MT4 windows in your computer.
MT4 Android and iOS
MT4 trading platforms for Android or iOS devices are available as applications.
You can download them from the Appstore of iOS or Playstore of Android.
LMFX offers the MT4 of Android and iOS version which are provided from MetaQuotes original.
So you can install the trading platform and use it for several brokers at once.
MT4 trading platform for Web version is useful when you don’t want to download the heavy/RAM consuming trading platform in your computer.
You can login to the Web Trader with your login credentials from any where in the world.
You can even go to an internet cafe and login for a few minutes to manage your trades through the Web trader.
MT4 from other brokers
Although LMFX offers the original MT4 from MetaQuotes for Android and iOS devices which are compatible with other brokers also, windows version of MT4 is customized for LMFX trading accounts.
So you can not login to other brokers’ trading accounts into the MT4 Windows of LMFX, or login to your LMFX trading account into other brokers’ MT4.
To solve this issue, you can download the original MT4 from MetaQuotes directly, and login to several accounts of several different brokers.
RAM consuming software
MT4 is a RAM consuming software and it could even cause a delay in your computer by running a MT4.
So you may want to make sure that you have closed all unnecessary applications, price charts, indicators and EAs so these things do not occupy your computer memory.
Leaving more than 10 charts opened in a MT4 could cause a slippage as the MT4 is taking time to process an execution.
