The FCA, the British margin advantage and why MT4 brokerages have never been able to list on public exchanges

What has owning your own trading system got to do with new margin regulations by the FCA? We investigate from London, and look at why MetaTrader 4 could be a victim of its own ubiquity.


The imminent demise of the MetaTrader 4 platform has been met with some surprise, some skepticism and in FinanceFeeds case, more than a degree of criticism as to the way the ubiquitous third party platform that dominates the small to medium retail FX brokerage space is being decommissioned.

The platform monopoly may well be at its legacy software orientated nadir, however apart from a will to finally move brokerages onto the newer (although still hardly a spring chicken) MetaTrader 5 platform, there has to be far more than meets the eye.

Until now, MetaQuotes has had something of a stranglehold on a market that was largely empowered by its own easy-to-set-up third party solution, that being smaller brokerages in peripheral regions to the main financial centers of the world, whose owners do not wish to invest in research and development or in house support, and simply want to advertise, and sell to retail traders.
