Open the Popup Prices

On MetaTrader4 (MT4) / MetaTrader5 (MT5), "Popup Prices" is available. The Popup Prices feature makes it easier to see the information displayed in the "Symbols" tab in the Market Watch. It can be opened in a separate window independent of MT4/MT5, so you can keep it open and use it while running other applications.

Here we will look at how to use the Popup Prices on MT4/MT5.

Switch between MT4/MT5 tabs to check the steps for each.
