cTrader vs MT4

When looking for a trading platform, cTrader and MT4 are often compared. Even though both have their own strengths, the reasons why many traders prefer cTrader over MT4 are related to:
  • cTrader’s user interface is very intuitive and hence those who are used to it find it difficult to switch to other platforms. But this will depend on the preferences of the trader and whether a smoother interface is preferred to some of the additional features MT4 provides.
  • Market depth: cTrader provides 3 different options for market depth assessment, which provides a comprehensive picture of market depth, whereas MT4 only provides one.
On the other hand, some of the reasons why users prefer MT4 over cTrader relates to:
  • Customisation: Indicators can be fully customised by any users on MT4(doesn’t need to understand a programming language). But cTrader doesn’t provide this feature making it more limited.
  • Auto Trading features: with MT4 Expert advisors for auto trading are available, and given the size of its community, it is easy to find support online.
