Admiral Markets available Trading Platforms

For trading platforms, Admiral Markets, like most online brokers, relies on the MetaTrader platforms from MetaQuotes. At Admiral Markets, traders can choose between the MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 platforms, whereby the broker's account models are linked to one of the two platforms. Admiral Markets also offers both platforms in the Supreme Edition for free download.

While the standard versions of the MT4 and MT5 platforms already provide all the necessary functions for virtually all types of traders, the MetaTrader Supreme Edition makes these trading platforms a high-end product for online trading. The Supreme Edition adds many features that make trading much easier for beginners and professional traders and provide much more options for successful trading. These capabilities include market sentiment display for individual instruments, mini-terminal that simplifies and accelerates the execution of trades with all required settings, an economic calendar and real-time news directly in MetaTrader and with Trading Central's Technical Insight™ is a fantastic tool for technical analysis directly integrated into MetaTrader.

MetaTrader 4 is available at Admiral Markets for Windows and Mac OS X systems, and as a mobile app for iPhone and iPad at the Apple App Store and for Android smartphones and tablets at Google Play. The MetaTrader 5 platform is not yet available for Apple systems and mobile devices, making it available for download only for Windows PCs. Those who do not want to install a trading platform or access trading from different devices can do so with the MT WebTrader, which can be used in any popular browser.
