MT5, or MetaTrader 5, is a trading platform. You can use it to open, close and manage trades, as well as monitor and analyse the markets in real-time.

Many traders, both beginners and experienced, prefer to use industry favourite MT4, as it’s simpler to navigate than MT5. MT5 has additional chart timeframes and features like Netting. It was also designed to offer greater access to CFDs, stocks and futures. Choosing the version of MetaTrader to use will depend on your unique trading needs.

MetaTrader is the platform you use to trade on, but any profits you make are made on your trading account with your broker. Once you have created an account with Alpari, it will be directly linked to your platform.

You don't deposit or withdraw money on MetaTrader. This is done on your trading account with your broker. You can learn more about deposit and withdrawal options here.

MetaTrader 5 is completely free to download. You’ll need to fund your trading account though to start making trades.

It depends on your personal preference. MT4 was specifically designed for forex traders, while MT5 was built with CFD, stock and futures traders in mind - although you can still trade forex on MT5, and you aren't limited solely to forex on MT4 either. Traders looking to analyse the markets in greater depth might benefit from the additional technical indicators and timeframes that MT5 offers.
