IG and MT4 connection problems on Mac


PaliG

Question

Hello, 

I am trying to open MT4 demo account on Mac in order to work with EA and do backtesting for indices. I know Mac and MT4 are not the good match, but want to try anyway. I was able to download MT4, but the process of logging in is nothing like the instructions.

I cannot find IG as a provider and therefore cannot find any indices, only Forex. Do you have any advice?

Hi, check the IG web pages specific to IG's MT4 on Mac, then the pages on creating a MT4 account.

Add an IG mt4 account from your 'My IG' web page dashboard.

You then need to link it with your MT4 so in mt4 go to File > Add  an account > you should see the IG mt4 demo and live feed pop up (see pic below). Create a demo and live account in turn by following the instructions (I think you need to click the 'receive newsletter' as well).

If the IG feeds don't appear try the 'add a new broker', take IG's name as in the pic below.

Once receiving IG's feed you get all so won't be just forex.

Click on the mt4 'Marketwatch' tab, right click in the space and select 'Show all', close then when you go to open a chart all the assets available will be listed (indices, fx etc).

    • Hah, can't believe they censored out the word d@mn.    
    • Interesting chart of Scandinavian all-cause deaths in 24 month periods shows no covid effect at all. The winter of 2019/20 was mild with fewer seasonal deaths than ususal but then the novel coronavirus was released and the deaths that would have occured during winter occured in April instead.  This is why so many countries are showing no real increase in all-cause deaths per year. It also shows that the covid death numbers are fake and are rebranded deaths from other causes. The vast majority of people who catch covid have mild or no symptoms at all, for those with symptoms the infectous stage only lasts 10 days max. From then on you have natural immunity. If you've had SARS-CoV-2 anytime over the last 17 years you will have T-cell immunity, if you have been in contact with covid-2 this last year you will also have covid-2 antibody immunity. Push the myth that covid can be spread asymptomatcally, mass test asymptomatic people with a test that is designed to detect old dead viral RNA that their immune system has destroyed and when the test shows positive pretend they actually have covid. We are constantly in contact with viral material, with an effective immune system we deal with it and don't get sick. Testing people who are not sick you will find old viral material if they came in contact with the virus up to a month previously, same if you apply the test to someone who has died.  Counting these people as covid 'Cases/Deaths' is a fraud and is done to boost the numbers and perpetuate the climate of fear. No return of freedom for you until you're begging for health identity cards, oh - and may as well add finance and energy usage details while we're at it.   .
