MetaTrader4 is a great trading platform and also a great mobile app, which allows retail traders to connect directly to their brokers and have access to a huge range of trading instruments. With that being said, the mobile MT4 app isn’t the most user friendly of apps and can be fairly difficult to navigate, as we can tell from the thousands of forum posts…
In this quick article we are going to show you step by step how to remove the grid from MT4 mobile app, to make your charts clean and easy to analyse. Let’s get started…
Your chart will look something like this. Covered in a very annoying grid, which isn’t too bad until you start adding indicators, trend-lines, support lines and demand zones, then you’re left with an absolute mess on your app. So let’s fix it…
Step 1 – Go To Settings
Step 2 – Click On Charts
Whilst you’re in the charting options, if you’re new to using the app, it’s also worth turning on Trade Levels. This options allows you to see any open or pending trades you open on your MT4 app, which comes in handy. You’ll see the order prices, stop losses and take profits.
Step 3 – Click On Colours
Step 4 – Click On Grid
Now at this stage, annoyingly MetaTrader won’t let you just turn off the grid. So what you’ll need to do is exactly match the colour of the grid, to the colour of your background. By doing this, the grid essentially becomes invisible and will sit behind any indicators or shapes you add to the charts, so you’ll never even know it’s there!
And there we go… Your MT4 mobile app should now look something like this – no grid at all and a nice clean environment to do your technical analysis on.
