Almost every retail forex broker offers an MT4 platform. If you are going to war, common sense reasoning states that you practice with the same weapon that you must use on the battlefield, because no one goes to war with an unproven gun (or a skill that has not been proven in this case).
So if you are going to start real money trading, you only need to start your learning journey with the MT4 platform.
Apart from the fact that practicing with the platform that will be encountered in direct trading, MT4 has certain features that will really improve beginner trading skills if used correctly. Some of these features are as follows:
MT4 graphics make reading very easy and you do not need to master how to use various graphical tools and objects on the platform.
Terminal windows are loaded with tabs which are pure assets: news bars for trading news and Market tabs, Base Codes and Signals to access resources in the MQL4 Community.
● Easy to use interface
● Use of expert advisors
MT4 comes as a browser-based version known as Webtrader. You can also download MT4 as a generic mobile application in the Google Play store and the App Store for iOS-based devices.
So for beginners in forex, MT4 is the first trading platform that you must recognize.
