What is MetaTrader?
MetaTrader is a software developed by MetaQuotes Software for online trading. It is widely used by retail exchange traders and acts as a client to a server usually ran by a brokerage firm who uses the software to provide their clients with the current status of the market, price charts, indicators and for managing and placing an order on the brokerage firm. It is an extensible software which allows clients to run scripts and robots to automate trading and updating of stocks.
As in the other tutorials we have two versions of MetaTrader which is version 4 and 5. Basically the two version has the same purpose but the only difference is that version 5 is the latest of the two.
