Why There is No Official MT4 for Mac

The main problem with using MT4 with Mac is that MetaTrader is a 32-bit platform. The latest macOS versions including Ventura, Silicon M1/M2, and Big Sur do not support this particular technology.

In simpler words, the platform may not work well on your Apple device. 10.14 Mojave appears to be the last version of macOS to support 32-bit applications.

Best Ways to Install MT4 on Mac

The good news is that traders can still use specific tools to make the platform work seamlessly. Those tools represent a combination of Rosseta with Wine and Crossover. The blend makes it possible for users to translate MetaTrader into the 64-bit system.

The main downside here is the complexity that comes with the process of platform translation. In some cases, different errors may take place along with app processing instability. This is why investors are looking for a simpler and safer way to use MT4 with Mac.

To make things easier, MetaTrader provides a less complex alternative to Crossover. Users can install and run the PlayOnMac emulator. However, this variant will work only for Catalina-based devices. However, this can also lead to system crashes.

To experience a smooth and error-free trading experience with MetaTrader on Mac, here are some simple ways that may turn out to be a better alternative to the options we have mentioned earlier.

  1. MT4 for Mac with Parallels. If you are the happy owner of Intel Mac, it is possible to install and use the official MT4 version designed for Windows. Despite so many different ways to run Windows on Apple devices, this option looks like the safest and most stable. It is easy to set up. The system works well on both Windows 10 and 11. Most importantly, you will get all the same MT4 features. The bad news is that Parallels is a paid app. When the free trial is over, you will have to pay for the annual subscription.
  2. MT4 for Mac with Boot Camp. Again, this option will only work for Intel Mac devices. Boot Camp is a utility that lets users install Windows as well as older macOS versions that are fully compatible with MetaTrader. The utility is free. The only miss here is that one cannot use Windows and Mac simultaneously.
  3. MT4 Mac with VPS. Some brokers provide Virtual Private Servers for professional traders who want to have fast, stable, and seamless access to financial markets 24/7. You will actually have a MetaTrader app connected remotely without the need to download and install it on your device. It does not matter what version of macOS your device runs on. The server works well on either Intel or M1/M2 devices. The only thing traders might need is to pay for VPs as well as install remote desktop software.
  4. MT5 for Mac. As the MT4 WebTrader platform is no longer available, it was replaced by MT5. It is a browser version of the trading app that does not require installation. It is compatible with all macOS versions and even provides access to the integrated demo account. The only drawback is that MT5 cannot be used in the offline mode.

How to install MT4 on Mac - Step-by-Step Guide

Download the installation file and open it. Drag the MTrading MT4 file into the applications folder. The installation will start automatically. Now, you need to follow several stages to start running the platform.

1. Launch the Software

Your MetaTrader 4 is now installed and will run automatically. Log in with your live or demo log-in details. If you don't have the account yet, the Trader's Room will start in your default browser in the background to help you to sign up.

2. Start Trading on MT4

Trading on your MacBook works like on a Windows PC. Open the MetaTrader standard order form by pressing "f9" and "fn". You can make use of the one-click trading tool by clicking on the little triangle in the upper left corner of the chart or by right-clicking in the chart and choosing 'one-click trading alt+T'.

Please note: You'll have to accept the one-click trading tool conditions before you can use it. In case you accidentally declined the conditions or closed the window, just open the window displaying the conditions again as follows: Extras > Options > Trading > One-Click-Trading > Tick the box.

3. Install EAs, Indicators, and Scripts

To install additional tools like Expert Advisors (EAs), indicators or scripts, open the program folder and right-click on MTrading MT4. In the menu that opens, choose Show Package Contents. Now you see the entire content of the installation file. Double click on "drive_c" to get to the MetaTrader structure on your MAC.

Now, when you see the usual MetaTrader file structure, you can place your EAs, indicators, and scripts.

Please note, if you experience problems with visualization of specific EA in your MT4 Terminal - we advise you to download these fonts. To install the font - double click on the downloaded file and press "Install Font".
