I highly recommend reading the earlier part of the Meta Trader 4 Show in case you do not know about excellent Meta Trader 4. In summary: This application will show you price movements of not only currency pairs but also stocks, indexes, and commodities. Simply put, it is an invaluable assistant in binary options trade.
In case you don’t have spare time to sit several hours at your computer and still would like to use Meta Trader 4 while traveling, Meta Trader 4 offers several options for tablets and smartphones. The first and probably the best is – hard to believe, right? – classic Meta Trader 4 for Windows tablets.
Meta Trader 4 for Windows
Yes, this is the traditional Meta Trader that you are used to. What is not so traditional is to run it on a tablet. If you do have, just like me, a tablet with Windows 8.1 or newer, you can install an ordinary version of Meta Trader from our website and use any indicators and templates you wish. The situation is worse for users of other tablets.
Meta Trader 4 for iOS and Android
The official Meta Trader application is offered even for these operating systems. It’s main disadvantage is that it does not support all indicators and templates. You can use trend lines and all other preinstalled tools, but not downloaded custom indicators.
Somewhere I’ve read that Meta Quotes (Meta Trader developers) are not planning extending functionality and adding an option to load custom indicators. The reason they give is that their users are satisfied and there’s no need for change.
Is there any alternative to MT4?
Yes, there is. You can use either FreeStockCharts page (version for PC or Windows tablet) or NinjaTrader application. Unfortunately, I have been unable to run FreeStockCharts on a smartphone. Alternative for smartphones is for example NetDania. I have not tested it yet. Have you tried any mobile application? Let me know your opinion in the comments section…
