Thanks for this great article.

I tried this application on the Mac, and opted for another program. I've been using that for other clients, I've created a wrapper and saved it as a zip file for the pepperstone Razor account, but I can make it for some others if any body wants.

I cannot up load it to this site, but I can make a link available if you want.

Running on the Mac is a significant improvment, as apposed to running on a PC or Parallels.

Best Regards



You can also run MetaTrader on Mac OS virtually using VMware Fusion: http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/features.html.

P.S. Unlike Wine, VMware Fusion is a fully stable virtualization solution by VMware and it runs Windows and all Windows applications virtually.

I want a native version, not virtualized :-)

I cannot log into my account. It simply does not connect.  

I have tried MT4 and MT5.  

It does not work.

Build an OS X version.   

Virtualization is not a solution, it simpy doesn't work properly. I'm using virtualized MT4 on Mac for half a year now and it barely pulls the interface together correctly as the windows version does, it's uncomparably slower than Windows version, and fonts are barely readable. Is there a possiblility that you will release it natively for Mac? 
Article needs an update as the version numbers are well & truly behind currently available.
