In this post I will be reviewing the Forex Trading Keyboard tool for the popular MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 trading platforms. This is a very simple tool which comes as an 18 Key customisable hotkey keyboard. The purpose of the tool is to make it quick and easy for you to perform frequent actions in the MT4 and mt5 platforms.
The forex trading keyboard is the result of discussions between several forex traders who felt that having a customisable trading keyboard would reduce the time taken to conduct analysis and execute trade decisions, provided that the trading keyboard was compact and customizable to suit each traders’ individual requirements.
The idea of attaching scripts to hotkeys was suggested and explored further, the developers then researched the most common functions which would warrant traders own dedicated key such as Zoom in, Zoom out, AutoScale chart, Buy, Sell etc. From this these findings they were able to produce a MT4 and MT5 trading keyboard with common function keys and six coloured hotkey buttons able to run any attached script.
