Note about using EA’s

Despite the Metatrader platform being fully compatible with the MAC OS, some expert advisors and indicators that require a custom installation might not work. In other words, if you do not directly have the .ex4 files, then it would be difficult to install the custom indicators or expert advisors. Therefore, Metatrader users on the MAC operating system need to be cautious when purchasing custom indicators and expert advisors. Always check with the vendor to ensure that the custom indicators or expert advisors are MAC compatible as well as far as the installation procedure is concerned.
