MT4 Demo


GTC1

Question

I've been using Pro Real Time in IG  both as a demo and live account and am able to select PRT from the blue platform  button with the drop down menu. I want to try MT4 and have downloaded it a few times but it is nowhere to be seen in my IG account like PRT is. I'm clearly doing something wrong and would appreciate some help with this. many thanks

Hi, mt4 is a desktop platform not a web based platform so if you downloaded IG's mt4 the exe file will be in your downloads folder. Just double click and follow instructions, a icon will also be placed on your desktop. 

You can open a demo straight away from the platform, for a live account go to your My IG web page and click 'add an account' and select mt4 cfd or sb.

Hi,thanks for the response.I've downloaded MT4 and have a demo account. I added an MT4 SB account  and its showing on my IG dashboard but I was expecting to be able to go to the MT4 platform from my dashboard as i did when using Pro Real Time. If that isn't the case how do i get to see the MT4 charts in my IG account?

Thanks

prt is web based same as IG's own charting package but you can't access mt4 from a web page, the mt4 charting package sits on your own computer and is linked to IG via IG's data servers.

Thanks - I understand now - nearly. So I have MT4 on my desktop and I have an IG Demo account working fine. I have added MT4 in my IG account and its sitting there in my dashboard with funds in it so how do I bring MT4 together with my  IG MT4  account to create a live trading environment ?

HI, your login and password are sent to you via 2 separate emails from IG.

    • In the wake of a brewing conflict between the Nigerian government and Binance, cryptocurrency enthusiasts find themselves on edge, uncertain about the future of their digital investments. Rumors abound that Binance, along with other platforms, might be exacerbating the Naira's devaluation against the dollar, prompting the government to take a hard stance against the exchange. Despite longstanding allegations of wrongdoing, recent events have propelled the government to escalate its actions. The situation has escalated dramatically, with Binance's P2P platform disabled and a staggering $10 billion fine imposed for alleged illegal activities. This punitive measure, coupled with last year's $4.3 billion fine by the SEC, underscores the gravity of the situation. However, skepticism lingers regarding the astronomical sum demanded by the Nigerian government. While Binance has faced regulatory challenges in other jurisdictions, its resilience and market dominance have largely endured. Yet, the potential ramifications of losing access to a key crypto market like Nigeria cannot be ignored. Complicating matters further, the Nigerian House of Representatives has summoned Binance CEO Richard Teng, issuing a seven-day ultimatum for him to address allegations of terrorist financing and money laundering, among other charges. This development casts a shadow over the future prospects of Binance in the country. Amidst the uncertainty surrounding Binance's operations in Nigeria, users are scrambling to identify alternative platforms. While other centralized exchanges (CEX) remain operational within the country, the pressing question remains: which platform will emerge as the most dependable alternative should the situation worsen? https://punchng.com/reps-summon-binance-boss-over-alleged-terrorism-financing/
    • 2024 has been a good year for crypto traders with signs of a bullish market prevailing. For the first time in 3 years, we are witnessing BTC set a new ATH repeatedly. If you endured the prolonged bear market of the previous years, you deserve these gigantic green candles! In addition to BTC's incredible run, several alts have broken out nicely; Ai, memecoin, GameFi projects and so on have spiked. Most notably in the month of February is the run of CEX tokens. According to Foresight News, centralized exchange tokens boast of a widespread price spike in February, based on data from ICO Analytics. Standing tall amongst many is BGB with 62% increase, while ASD, BNB, and KCS witnessed gains of 45%, 33%, and 22% respectively. As a BGB holder myself who’s been holding since June 2023 at an average price of $0.45, it’s been an incredible journey. I’ve witnessed it smash its ATH over again, the latest coming in February when BGB set a new ATH of $1.15. Aside the juicy ROI, BGB usecases have been a flex for me, granting me access to exclusive events, like Launchpads where I’ve also managed mouth-watering gains from my participations. BNB had a remarkable run in the last bull cycle, sadly I missed out having sold mine for peanuts. If you said I’m stoked to right my wrong with BGB this time, you wouldn’t be far from the truth!  Which CEX token(s) are you keenly observing?
    • Look at the transaction log to see why, Most of the time it's because your stop loss is set too close.
