What is a Forex Trading Platform?

A forex trading platform is an online software which enables investors to access the foreign exchange market. It can be used to open, close and manage trades from the device of their choice and contains a variety of tools, indicators and timeframes designed to allow you to monitor and analyse the markets in real-time.

Trading platforms such as MetaTrader don’t just limit you to foreign exchange — you can trade a variety of other financial instruments including commodities, precious metals, CFDs and more.

A client-centric broker like Margin Markets makes these cutting-edge platforms available to download for free, and offers you any technical or practical support you may need.


MetaQuotes Software initially released MetaTrader 4 in 2005 and it rapidly grew in popularity due to its wide variety of third party scripts and advisors. Within just a few short years, brokerages began to offer the platform in addition to their own trading software and it soon became the go-to industry favourite.

In 2010, MetaQuotes launched MetaTrader 5, which provides an even broader range of analytical tools, indicators and other trading resources.

These cutting-edge platforms, combined with Margin Markets range of products and services, make for a truly exceptional trading experience.

What’s the difference between the MT4 and MT5 trading platforms?

MetaQuotes Software created MT4 and MT5 with great trading in mind. Both platforms offer pioneering automated trading systems, a host of tools and expert advisors and an intuitive user interface. They also both offer customisable features, meaning each user’s trading experience is tailored to their requirements.

However, there are significant differences between the two — and it is vital to understand the unique features of each platform to identify the right fit for you.
