etaQuotes, the owners and developers of MetaTrader 4 (MT4), have announced that due to the constant development of MT4, they will no longer be supporting older versions of the platform.

From Friday July 1, 2016 onwards, support for all MetaTrader 4 plaform Versions 4.00 Build 940 and below will be discontinued.

This means that you will have to update your MT4 platform to the current version to continue your trading activities. While most platforms will update automatically, some will need to be done manually.

If you need to update your platform, you can install a new version by clicking here.

Please make sure to save any important data installed on your MT4 platform before you install any updates.

We are here to help – If you have any questions/queries or would like to discuss the impact of the MT4 update on your trading, please contact us.

Best Regards

If it wasn't for EA and custom indicators I would DEFINITELY be using another platform.. It has happened a few times that it updates and wipes all saved profiles and templates - I have learned the hard way to save them elsewhere..

Apparently they are always striving for user friendliness and user satisfaction. Why the constant updates then, do you want to tell me there are so many bugs.. And then this non sense now?

My accounts will ALWAYS show high DD. This is done purposely to maximize our withdrawals every week.

Now I have to go and check each platform if it is above build 940, because they feel they are not going to let older versions run anymore..

Does any of you know what version of your browser you are running? Imagine you get a message from them saying version xxx won't work anymore after so many days..

I believe it also depends on your broker.

I think Mt4 is good enough and now developers should stop screwing it further....just let it run the way it is.

They also released the final version of MT5 Web. (https://smnweekly.com/2016/07/05/metaquotes-releases-mt5-final-web-version-features-setting-orders-single-click/). I wonder whether now that they've introduced a hedging option to MT5 it will start gaining more popularity or it will always trail behind MT4 in that regard.

As vontogr@ says, it depends on your broker, the client has to interface with the server (old server version = old client version). 940 is quite old, so most likely all are already above that (@HESHAM MAHMOUD YOUNES - I lost all my EA's, templates, etc. in last update - something went spectacularly wrong, so make backups of MQL4 folder now). I believe the Market, Signals and Virtual Server are the only changes / additions made in the latest version, I've noticed no trading function changes (unfortunately. Would like options for more order types and more built in functions to prevent trading, like a preferences section to prevent trading under certain conditions - prevent under % margin level, under available free margin as percentage of balance, etc). I know this can be set in EA's, but there is no limitation on manual trading or file to put set trading conditions that can be distributed to students or other traders for training or manual trading strategy limitations.

It's getting too bulky with the addition of signals, market and VS... and many 'trading' functions are still not available. At least they should improve on both sides... currently it looks like they are driven by income generation and trader functions have to take a back seat.

For every loss there should be at least an equal and opposite profit.
