Metaquotes MT4 and MT5¶
These pages are firstly “notes to self” on setting things up, and will reference private git repositories.
Perhaps, as this matures, I will clean it up for wider consumption.
Install MT4 from the install file provided by the broker
Modify the destination directory with a (n) suffix to install multiple copies on the same machine
Git clone the MT4 base repo into a new folder on the machine, then manually copy it across to overlay onto the MQL4 folder in Terminal datadirectory.
git clone https://github.com/simon-hoffe/mql5-mt4-base.git git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:simon-hoffe/mql5-mt4-base.git
Then need to initialise the sub-modules and clone them as well.
git submodule update --init --recursive
