The MT4 has an intuitive user interface and comes with a charting package, technical indicators, and multiple tools for analysis.
The MT5 was developed in 2010 to replace the MT4 but up until now, it has not been able to do that mainly because of compatibility issues. Plugin apps, EAs, and tools designed for the MT4 will not run on the MT5 and MT4 installations do not upgrade to MT5. Though, the software look-alike like the physical interface and functions, the MT5 is more advanced and has more tools than the MT4.

FreshForex is an offshore broker that offers multiple assets for trading on the sophisticated and popular MT4 and MT5 trading platforms. The choice of platform is commendable because MetaTrader platforms are popular and thousands of EAs and apps created for these platforms are already in use. Multiple payment options are available; this includes Bitcoin and multiple e-wallets. The broker uses premium liquidity providers and ECN technology to bring about low spreads and fast executions. It is, therefore, no surprise that the broker has won over 10 awards in honor of its outstanding performances. Traders are supported with cent accounts, multiple analyses, trading signals, and education.
A major drawback with this broker is its regulatory status. The broker’s operations are not authorized and regulated by reputable brokers such as FCA, CySEC, FSCA, etc. So, this is a major concern for experts and industry professionals. Also, the asset listing is small compared to thousands of instruments offered by its competitors.
FreshForex has remained in the market for 16 years and still counting. There is every hope that it will conquer some of its challenges and emerge as a better broker.
