Switch accounts

If you have multiple accounts on MetaTrader4 (MT4) / MetaTrader5 (MT5), select the accounts you want to use in the navigator to switch between them with ease. If you've logged in to MT4/MT5 at least once and saved the account information, you don't have to enter your login info every time. You can also use this feature to switch between your real account and your demo account.
