XTB no longer supports MetaTrader 4's web version

XTB no longer supports MetaTrader 4's web version
Leading forex brokerage XTB recently announced that it will no longer support MetaTrader 4's browser-based trading platform. As of yesterday it is no longer available.

XTB's traders will no longer be able to use their real or demo accounts via MetaTrader Web, but they'll still be able to use the regular desktop platform.

The broker says: "The change will not affect the trading accounts on MetaTrader, account management will be possible from the MT4 desktop version."

XTB is currently asking its clients to download the regular platform from its site. XTB hasn't given any specific reasons for getting rid of MetaTrader 4's web-based platform.

MetaTrader 4 is still the forex sector's most popular trading software

This announcement flies in the face of the increasing popularity of MetaTrader's trading platform. Despite ongoing speculation that the forex trading platform will disappear after 14 years of usage, it's still the sector's standard.

The press release also follows the release of the Polish broker's financial performance figures early in March, which reported a robust 4Q and steady growth throughout last year. 

During last year's final quarter, XTB won over 4,742 new clients. This brings the total of new clients last year to 19,672.

In 2018, XTB sales increased 4% to PLN 188.3 million ($65 million). As for net income, it went up by nearly 8% year-on-year, hitting PLN 99 million ($22 million).
