It is very obvious that MT4 and MT5 still dominate the market, but many brokers still provide alternatives. Will a broker recommend trading software to clients? Or should a broker only use MT4/5 instead of acquiring other products to lower cost?
I think it is what you get used to. I personally do not like MT4. I very much liked the MF Global app but they went bankrupt 3 days after I closed an account with them. It’s the same for Crypto exchanges. I like Bittrex (my first crypto exhange / broker and I still use them), I don’t really like Crypto.com (mobile app only) or my offline wallet account. I’ve just opened a Hugo’s Way account for Forex, to use their demo account for some back test work, and to try to get used to MT4 again (after a 5 year break from trading frequently). I only had one broker account back in 2015 last time I traded, but this time around, I will use 2 or 3 for Forex, maintaining separate accounts for different trading styles
Wow that’s some insane timing right there.
You can either call it lucky, or the rewards from sticking to a plan. I recovered about £3.5K with that decision to stick to the plan, to the day.
