Trading ES and other Futures with Metatrader4?

hi, guys:

Today I fiind a Russian Broker web site: Trading platforms - Broco, I download its Metatrader 4 and find it has ES symbol on it, I am very happy about it, cause I have a few great MT4 forex systems in my computer, I know most of you guys will use Ninjatrader, but MT4 has ton of custom indicators and systems that may help ninja Future trading, I will check it tomorrow to see if we can get it real time.

After you download it, in Market Watch column, you right click "symbol", select "show all", then click 'File", select new chart, then CHARTS, click ES_cont, there you go.

Any of you guys have interest, please provide some advice.

Metatrader 4

Hi Alex.

I love the fact that we can have access to the future indices on the MT4 platform.
Personally I love the platform ( maybe because I started out trading on it ), but there
are some pitfalls. They usually have a huge brokerage fee - ( $ 70 per contract on the SP)
and you will notice that most of the brokers offering the future index feeds on MT4 are
situated outside the US, due to trading/exchange regulations ( i.e red tape).Still its nice
to see what kind of forex systems work well on the futures, I personally have adapted one
of my forex systems as my main futures trading system. I have a MT4 demo account
from - I think they are in London.

Hope my five cents help

Take care - Mick

Thank you for your reply

I definitely will not use MT4 to trade real, especially not putting money outside North America. I will use Ninja chart trader to do live, I just have a few good MT4 systems to help me identify the trend. I will post some screen shots of my favorite system when I finish watching the ES price action of MT4 compared with Ninjatrader.
