How to benefit from trading with MT4 custom indicators

MetaTrader4 Platform offers an outstanding opportunity for traders to implement their trading visions of price analysis on practice by allowing to create and add custom Forex indicators.

Even if you are currently trading with a non-MT4 broker and/or never tried MT4 platform before, there is so much custom indicators may offer that it would be unfair to not give them a chance to work for you.

All you need to do is to open a demo account with any of the Forex brokers that use MetaTrader4 platform and continue trading live with your old broker. Or if you like MT4 already, consider moving to a new platform.

The full list of MT4 Forex brokers

Opt for a Forex broker with good reputation; and regulated by local authorities.

For example, the National Futures Association (NFA) and Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) regulate brokers in the United States.
To find out about current status of your US broker go to:

Swiss based brokers must be regulated by the Swiss Federal Department of Finance, and so on.
These regulatory authorities protect investors against brokers' manipulations, frauds and other unfair activities.

Is there any MT 4 forex broker supporting microlots(like oanda). Please share if anyone has info on this.


I saw LiteForex offering micro lots.
Also FXOpen does. The last one however doesn't even have an "About Company" page. I don't know if they are registered or regulated by any authority.
LiteForex is registered with Seychelles International Business Authority, if this tells you anything :).
Both have 3 pips spread for EUR/USD, 4 pips for GBP/USD.
That's my short research, glad if you find it useful :)


ibfx (you can trade also nano lots but they have huge spread at news times)
fxdd (you have to ask for micro lot)
forexgen (i don't recommend them because it seems to be scam. i have recognized very slow execution and requoting. i think it is impossible to day trade)
