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.
