As Apple computers become more and more popular among traders, we built a native MT4 Mac application
Commenting on the announcement by Tickmill, the CEO of the company, Sudhanshu Agarwal, said, “As Apple computers become more and more popular among traders, we built a native MT4 Mac application to match the needs of our clients. We are well aware of the high loyalty Mac users have for the OS X environment.”
The solution provided by the company is a straight forward one and doesn’t require in depth knowledge of the way the operating system works in order to be installed.
The MT4 version which runs within the MacOS environment is essentially the same as the one running on Windows.
