1.       User friendliness:

MetaTrader 4 platform is highly user-friendly and this is the reason that most traders choose it over the others. The interface of this platform is easily accessible and all the stuffs of MT4 are at their appropriate position.

There is a market watch box at the top left, and just below this a navigator is placed there. A terminal is there at the bottom of the MT4 platform. This terminal includes ten sections, some of them are- forex signals, journals, expert, exposure, alerts, mailbox, code base etc.

2.       Several indicators:

This platform includes a number of indicators, and you don’t need to buy them once you have chosen a MT4 platform.

But, using MT4 will definitely save you from this issue as multiple accounts are accessible there. In fact this trading platform also comes with a demo account, which means now you can try different strategies without losing the real money.
