MagnifyWhy do people still use MT4 instead of MT5?

#1
Isn't the function of MT5 more complete than that of MT4?
The timeline is also more detailed than MT4

I want to know what everyone thinks

Metaquotes is a victim of it's own success. The MT4 following is so huge with a massive number of coders, users and indicators dedicated to MT4 means that Metaquotes simply can't just pull the plug on it. MT5 just sits there waiting still after nearly 10 years.

It looks like MT5 may never go mainstream.
tradingview can replace it :mistake:

The problem for MT5 is that though there are auto code converters (mt4 > mt5) the coders here will tell you that they don't usually work and that each EA/indicator code has to be re-written from scratch.

Presumably given time the number of EAs/indactors available for MT5 will be enough for most people.

Tradingview has it's own problems not least that to get full functionality and broker hook up you need to pay a monthly subscription (though sometimes the broker will pay).

bro........... i still favour mt4 because it's lightweight & i know it like the back of my hand

i'm happy with mt4 and dont wanna use any other mt5 if i dont need too plus there is just so many scripts & codes for mt4 & some of those i really need which mt5 still doesn't have yet!!!

to me mt5 only has real volume & nice shaded color filling on indicators.......... but who cares
TICK volume & REAL volume are always very close

even though mladen guy has been making effort to release lots of mt5 stuffs now on mql5 site i just like the feel of mt4 & this is how many of us feel

In this case, Metaquotes should introspect. MT4 needs more new versions and new content. For example there are more time charts

I'm more familiar with MT4 and feel like it has everything I need, so there's no pressure to switch. My broker also offers MT4 so I plan to stick with it. If they ever forced a switch to MT5, that's when I'd also decide to make the switch, but I doubt that'll happen with MT4's popularity.
