IG has made the globally popular MetaTrader 4 (MT4) trading platform available for its clients for the first time. MT4 is used by thousands of traders in the UK and around the world. IG’s offering will allow them to trade FX CFDs with a provider they can trust.

Clients can now create their own automated trading strategies using MT4 while taking advantage of IG’s ultra-fast execution. MT4 also offers numerous analytic functions and charts and the ability to backtest strategies.

To coincide with the launch, IG has also released a useful keyboard short-cut infographic to help traders make the most of MT4.

David Jones, chief market strategist at IG commented, “It’s really easy to install and activate MT4 with an IG account. We think that MT4 is a powerful addition to the suite of tools and technology we make available to clients to help them take advantage of market opportunities.”

IG’s MT4 service currently offers forex CFD trading on 34 currency pairs. The company will continue to work closely with MetaQuotes – the company behind MetaTrader – to supply the best possible service.
