Hi, see this page on mt4 https://www.ig.com/uk/trading-platforms/metatrader-4/download-mt4

For meaning of terms use the search box at top of IG welcome page (see pic)

FXPro have issued a warning that the new macOS Catalina update has a compatibility issue with MT4 and are advising not to install until a fix is issued.

 

"The newest update for macOS – Catalina, introduced a compatibility issue that does not allow MetaTrader programs to function on the platform.

We recommend our macOS-based users who wish to continue trading on their mac platform to postpone the update until a fix is available.

In the meantime, affected users can continue to trade via MetaTrader Web. ((FXPro only not available with IG))

All clients who run MetaTrader on Windows platform are not affected and can continue trading without concern."

Repeating this warning over the weekend from FXPro to clients using MT4 on macOS. Not sure if same applies to IG's MT4 but I wouldn't want to be the first to find out.

    • For me your stop is large, I use close to the minimum for the market. But I think same applies. I think basically I like tight stops because you can't lose too much but when you win hopefully you win big relative to that. I've been using a 4:1 reward/risk ratio for example.  When I started out I thought the likelihood of pulling this off given how close the stop was to entry was unlikely but actually it does happen fairly often. The issue I have is that I average a win every 4 trades so essentially make nothing in the end but that's just my mean, I have a massive standard deviation that I need to get way down i.e. increase win rate if possible before this is useful. So for me I think I need better timing signals to enter and I enter too readily without really using indicators to help me. To be honest though what I've found which might be obvious to most is that if the market trends for a period of time it's much easier to make money. When it isn't it's very difficult, the problem is you often don't know when it's not trending to a large enough degree until you're in it and then you need to know to take some time and return later. Like sailing with a strong wind and then all of a sudden it's doldrums.
