I just can't see mt4 being phased out. The uptake of mt5 is so small. All the robots and indiators are based on mt4. So few traders have made the transition to mt5 from mt4
It doesn't matter if you can see it or not. MT4 IS being discontinued.
Metaquotes has said on numerous occasions that they are discontinuing MT4.
you said -->'All the robots and indiators are based on mt4'
There are thousands of available robots and indicators available for MT5 as well.
MT4 uses MQL4 for the programming language.
MT5 uses MQL5 for the programming language.
MQL5 also supports the use of some (Not all) MQL4 code.
Metaquotes only provides service and security updates to brokers with current MT4 server licenses and support agreements.
They are not issuing any additional future licenses. There is no new work being done on MT4 by Metaquotes.
If it looks too good to be true, it's probably a scam! Let the buyer beware.
