Table of contents

Friends, greetings to all. If you decide to try to trade in forex, then you should know that this is done using a metatrader program that is installed on your home computer or on a remote server for round-the-clock automatic trading.

But besides all this, you need to know how to install it correctly on your computer or on a remote server. Knowing this it will be easier for you to continue working with several programs at the same time.

The correct installation of the metatrader4 trading terminal (mt4) is necessary in order to be able to install expert advisors, experts, indicators, etc. without further technical difficulties and without confusion in the folder hierarchy of the program. Also all these actions will be useful for transferring the program to the remote desktop (VPS server).

How to set metatrader4 (mt4)

Let's return to the installation of the terminal. If you have not downloaded it yet, read the article "How and where to download MT4". So, the installation file for the trading terminal has been downloaded, start its installation by double clicking on the icon of the installation file or by right-clicking on it and selecting "Open" or "Run as administrator" in the drop-down menu.

The figure below shows an option with the right mouse button:

A window with certain settings will open, you need to remove several checkmarks. We remove the checkboxes from the "Open site" and "Run the program after installation". In the "Installation folder" field, register as shown in the photo, after which, before installing the program, a folder will be created with the name "MT4" in the root of the "C" drive, into which the files and folders of the trading terminal will be installed. After clicking the "Next" button, as shown in the photo:

Now you can start the first launch of the program and make the initial settings. How to make the terminal settings read on the page "Setting up a trading terminal"

This completes the installation of the metatrader4 (mt4) terminal. This corresponds to the installation of a shortcut on the desktop to run the program. If you downloaded the installation file from the InstaTrader site as I showed on this page "Download terminal metatrader4 (mt4)", the program shortcut will be red as shown in the photo:
