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.

MT4 Setup

  • 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

git clone

Then need to initialise the sub-modules and clone them as well.

git submodule update --init --recursive
