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




Im confused, I saw this download and because i dont have a mac yet cannot determine if this is the same thing.

But it 'appears' that there is a specific version for MAC now.

If so why is this site still recommending the older installation?

Maybe im wrong and they both use wine????


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 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.
  • Market is unavailable - as known issue - but why? why do i have to use pc with windows? it makes non sense to me... :/
