Ways to integrate MetaTrader 4 

Becoming a Forex broker is a process that contains numerous pitfalls, while the integration of a powerful and time-tested trading platform cuts through the hurdles. There are two ways of integration:

  2. MetaTrader White Label solution. The WL solution is essentially MT4 rental. Other brokers that have purchased the license offer newcomer participants to get the best functionality and jump-start on the Forex market.

According to statistics, 85% of newcomer brokers prefer the WL solution. First of all, the licensed MT4 cost is about $120 000 – such a high level of expense is impossible for inexperienced brokers. Furthermore, the WL solution provides you with the support of a powerful and trusted company.
