Apple removed MT4 and MT5 trading apps from the App Store – How can this affect your trading?

From Saturday, September 24, 2022, MetaTrader 4 (MT4) and MetaTrader 5 (MT5) are no longer available for download on the App Store. Following the tech giant’s decision to pull down MetaQuotes’ MT4 and MT5 trading apps from the App Store, many traders wonder how this can affect their trading activity.


First of all, traders who have already downloaded the iOS Apps will not be affected by this change for the moment unless they try to update them. 


Let’s find out if and how the removal of MT4 and MT5 from the App Store may affect your trading. 


When I try downloading MT4/MT5 through the Apple App store, I get an “App Not Available” message. 

Due to the removal of MT4 & MT5 from the Apple App Store, you won’t be able to download the applications to your Apple mobile device. 


However, you can still access your trading account using the web version and/or the desktop application or any android mobile device.


Are my funds safe? 

Your funds are safe and fully accessible and are not affected by the removal of MT4 and MT5 trading apps from the App Store.

We keep client funds in segregated accounts to ensure they are always protected. The MT4 and MT5 trading apps are the tool (software) to trade online and have nothing to do with your fund’s safety


Will my deposits and withdrawals be affected?

No, transactions such as deposits, withdrawals and transfers are processed through the Eurotrader portal and are not affected by Metaquotes software and the removal of MT4/MT5 from the Apple App Store.


I use my Apple (iOS)  mobile/iPad to trade. How will I be affected?

Traders already using Apple devices for trading are not affected by MT4/MT5 removal from the App store. You can still trade if you have MT4/MT5 installed on your mobile device.

If you have previously installed MT4/MT5 on your mobile device, you may try reinstalling them by going to the App Store, “purchased” (apps) and choosing the “Not on this iPhone” tab.

However, if you update the MT4 and MT5 apps, you will not be able to use them anymore.


I use my Android mobile/tablet to trade. Am I affected by this change?

The MT4/MT5 trading apps are still available on Google Playstore. So, this change does not affect Android devices’ users/traders. 

You can also access your account through the web version or desktop application of MT4/MT5. 


Can I open a demo account using my iOS mobile device?

Unfortunately not. You can alternatively open a demo account through the desktop app, android app or web version of MT4 and MT5.

If you already have an open demo account, you can still access it through your Apple (iOS) mobile device.


I couldn’t log in to my MT4/MT5 account on my iOS mobile device. Were my login credentials affected?

You can still log in to your account on your iOS mobile device. Removing MT4 and MT5 from the Apple App store doesn’t affect your account accessibility. 

So, make sure you’re using your correct login credentials. You might need to reset your password if you haven’t logged in to your account for a while.


Will approved trading accounts registered through an Apple (iOS) mobile device be affected?

You will not be affected if you have registered your trading account using an Apple mobile device. 

You can use your account login credentials to log in to your account using an Apple mobile device, android device, desktop application or the web version of MT4/MT5, regardless of which device you have used to sign up for your account.


I haven’t logged in for a while. Can I log in to my account?

The removal of MT4 & MT5 doesn’t affect your ability to log in to your account. If you cannot log in to your account, ensure you use the correct login credentials. You might need to reset your password. 

Contact our support team to assist you if you still can’t log in to your account.


Can I reset my password?

The withdrawal of MT4 & MT5 doesn’t affect your ability to log in to your account. 

You can try resetting your password if you cannot access your account. Please contact our support team if you still can’t log in to your account.


Are there any alternatives to trading online if I use an iOS device? 

Within the next couple of weeks, we will be ready to provide you with a new solution on top of what we already offer. In the meantime, you can always trade through the web version if you’re on an iOS device.


For support, please contact our team, which is always happy to help.

Just a few days after naming its new CEO, Eurotrader Group continues to unveil key changes in its executive lineup with new appointments and departures.

The multi-asset broker has most recently hired Valutrades alumni Robert Collins as its new Head of Trading.

Robert Collins highlights the future goals within Eurotrader: “Eurotrader has a keen eye on the future. Our key focus is providing exceptional service to our clients, and our aim is to ensure that this focus never wavers, even when the scale of our business changes as we increase our licenses and expand into new markets. , We will need a strong foundation to ensure the focus can always remain on our clients, and the team we have puts us in the best position to achieve that.”

The new appointment comes hot on the heels of onboarding Martin Couper as Eurotrader’s head of global compliance, following a career of over 16 years in the financial industry.

Martin worked previously at Exinity and was compliance officer, MLRO and CASS and oversight director at the UK business of Middle-East heavyweight brokerage firm Amana Capital. That was preceded by four years at FxPro UK Ltd as head of operations and UK compliance officer.

Eurotrader Group has made a series of changes to its management structure this month, culminating in the appointment of industry veteran Marcelo Spina as its Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Eurotrader hires FX industry vet Marcelo Spina as CEO

September 2022, London –  As an industry veteran, he brings almost three decades of experience to the role.

Cyprus-based multi-asset broker Eurotrader Group has announced that it has hired Marcelo Spina as its new CEO.

Eurotrade Investments RGB Ltd is a CySEC licensed retail broker in forex, stocks, crypto, indices and commodities. The group’s main goal is to create a trading community by updating an antiquated environment using cutting-edge technologies and adapting to the changing trader requirements.

Marcelo Spina was VP Sales at FXCM from 2005-2008 before jumping to rival, where he worked as Senior Vice President and Head of Partnerships until 2017. He then spent two years at Saxo Bank (2017-2019); served as Global Head of Partnerships at FXTM (2019); and Global Head of Business Development at ThinkMarkets (2019-2020). For the past two years, Mr Spina ran his own FX brokerage consultancy.

On the new CEO appointment, Eurotrader’s founder Dr Ozan Ozerk commented:

“It is a testament to our growth at the Eurotrader Group that we can attract the calibre of people like Marcelo Spina to the Eurotrader Group, and it does not end with him.

Marcelo Spina added:

“Many companies have values just to say that they have them. Eurotrader Group does work by its values – being transparent and trusted, being curious and inclusive, and discerningly daring. The people are the biggest indicators of success within a company. Having much more than the requisite experience, the people at Eurotrader Group care about the client and the company with the inherent humanity that comes through in the interactions internally and externally. And when the owner is an enabler of growth who understands the business and the potential, it is much easier to take a company forward.”

Regarding the roadmap for expansion and next steps at Eurotrader, Mr Spina said:

“We will be enhancing our institutional services for professional investors. We are about to launch our commission-free equity investing application for European clients. Meanwhile, we will add additional licenses to accommodate business growth around the world. We are planning to expand our offering to clients in Southeast Asia, Africa and Latin America and significantly enhance the range of languages supported. We also plan to expand our teams and partnerships in several areas of the world and different disciplines, including business development, technology, product, operations and compliance.”
