LiteForex Trading platforms
LiteForex provides 3 trading platforms as follows:
This platform is the most used by forex traders from all over the world. The platform is rugged and loaded with multiple trading tools as well as technical analysis tools. On the MT4, traders can create, install and activate trading robots known as ‘Expert Advisors’ (EAs). It comes preloaded with 30 technical indicators, but the number can be extended to thousands of indicators through plugin apps.
LiteForex provides the MT4 as follows:
- Windows desktop application
- MT4 for Mac PC
- MT4 mobile: installable for android and iOS devices.
- MT4 Multiterminal: This is designed for account managers who trade multiple accounts simultaneously through a few clicks.
This trading platform was designed by the same company that developed the MT4. It was designed to be more powerful and possibly to replace the MT4, but unfortunately, both platforms are not compatible. You cannot upgrade an MT4 installation to MT5; apps and EAs designed for the MT4 will not run on the MT5. Hence, brokers like LiteForex provide both platforms for their clients. The MT5 has all the features of the MT4 and even more. For instance, MT5 comes preloaded with 38 technical indicators, 6 pending orders, an economic calendar, etc.
Just like the MT4, LiteForex also provides the MT5 for Windows PC, Mac PC, and mobile versions.
LiteForex Social trading platform
This platform doubles as its personal area, which is available to all clients upon registration. It has a simple, intuitive interface and features clients’ profiles, trading tools, account management, and technical analysis tools. It is preloaded with 50 technical indicators and 8 chart styles displayable on 9 timeframes. It also has the social trading feature, which allows an expert trader to broadcast his trades so that investors or newbies can replicate his strategies at a fee or commission. Before choosing a provider, the investor can access the ‘Trader’s rating’ page, which profiles all the expert traders and ranks them by performance. An investor can then make a choice based on performance history or other parameters. The investor is at liberty to choose how to copy the trades, percentage of total trades, volume or to copy all trades in full.
