AETOS CG comes equipped with 2 trading platforms: MetaTrader 4 and Metatrader 5.
Although MetaTrader 5 is a step towards the right direction, Metatrader 4 still holds on its own when it comes down to delivering what is necessary. The functionalities are all there including drag and drop charts, user friendly accessibility and pending order types. With MetaTrader 4 you can set automatic trading bot to do your deals for you while you preoccupy your time with different activities.
EURUSD spread on Metatrader 4 averages 1.8-2 pips. Expect the maximum leverage to be 1:30 (ESMA ruling).
Although we were unable to track down a browser MT4 platform, all other devices (mobile, tablet) are capable of supporting MT4. There is also a desktop version, as per usual.
The Metatrader 5 trading platform has certain advantages over its older brother (MT4) that, although cannot change the contents of your wallet as much as you would like, can still make a difference. MT5 features more technical indicators, a larger number of graphical objects and increased time frames. As always MetaTrader 5 does not fall short on the important inclusion of Expert Advisors.
Here the spread averages 1.7-1.9 pips, but it mostly stays on the 1.7 mark. ESMA imposed decree has set the maximum leverage for EU and UK to 1:30.
Access MT5 on your desktop, phone or tablet. A web version is unavailable.
