This post will guide you how to Send Push Notification Alerts to your Android, iPhone or iPAD device from your
Metatrader 4 desktop client terminal. This could be a extremely useful feature to alert you with push notifications in your mobile device whenever the indicator is providing a buy or sell signal and you are away from your Metatrader 4 trader terminal. This post will explain how to set up push notifications for your IPAD device, but the steps are almost identical for Android Device.

The MetaQuotes ID is a unique code assigned to your device. On your mobile device, download and open MetaTrader 4 mobile. Go to the settings menu. Scroll down to the “Messages” header. You will see “MetaQuotes ID” and an 8-character code as shown below.
Step 2: Enter your MetaQuotes ID in the client terminal settings
Open the MetaTrader 4 Client Terminal. Click Tools > Options for the options menu. Click on the “Notifications” tab. Check the box “Enable Push Notifications.” Enter your MetaQuotes ID.
Step 3: Test your connection
After you enter your MetaQuotes ID, click “Test.” This will generate a test message to your mobile device. It will prompt you to check your journal. You can look in the “Journal” tab of the terminal window to confirm the notification was sent. If set up properly, you will receive a notification in your status bar and in the “Messages” area of MT4 Mobile.
