Calling all stock traders, share junkies or anyone who likes to have a bit of a dabble on the free market: MetaTrader 4 is the app for you! Now, I don’t have a lot of luck with gambling, an affliction that I wish that I could say is balanced out by my fortune in love (more on that later), but I had a little look at this app and reckon that if I can work out how to make money from it, anyone can.
Essentially, MetaTrader 4 is a platform that lets you trade Forex using your iPhone or iPad; it doesn’t charge you for this service and you can trade currencies with any of 1000+ servers of brokerage firms that use the MetaTrader 4 trading platform. Pretty cool, no? It gets better. With real-time quotes of financial instruments, you can get up-to-the second information that allows you to trade directly from the chart, buying and selling shares whilst on the go.
What I like about this app is that gives you a complete trading history, allowing you to weep over your previous losses and rejoice over your victories; this nifty little function allows you to allocate where you went right/wrong in order for you to adjust your future strategy accordingly. You can also get push notifications sent to your iDevice so that you never run the risk of not being updated on important developments.
Now, a little bit of technical nomenclature for those in the know: The app uses the 30 most popular technical indicators, from Accelerator Oscillator to Williams’ Percent Range as well as 7 timeframes: M1, M5, M15, M30, H1, H4 and D1, 3 chart types: Bars, Japanese Candlesticks and Line and adjustable graphical settings of technical indicators listing colour, line and width.
I may not have reversed my misfortune in ‘backing the wrong horse’ when it comes to gambling, but when the chicks see me tapping away at this genuinely useful, intuitive and engaging app, they’re sure to start queuing up, no?
- The general layout of the app is clear and very easy to understand.
- It really is useful, intuitive and engaging.
- Chicks really will dig you.

Chicks may not actually dig you. Who cares, you’ve got the cash!
