Frequently asked questions

MT4 sub-account setup

You can apply through our standard sub-account opening process. Once your sub-account has been approved and you have signed an additional agreement (the MT4 agreement), our Electronic Trading Client Services team will arrange the setup of your MT4 sub-account.

You can then download the MT4 terminal and sign in with the MT4 login details we send you. You will have access to both the mobile and desktop versions. Once you have funded your Saxo account, it will take between two to three days to get full access to MT4.

Our Sales team will take you through the Saxo account opening process. Once you have signed the additional MT4 agreement, the Electronic Trading Client Services team will take over the MT4 setup. They will discuss which liquidity solution best matches your needs and facilitate your access to MT4.

The Complete Guide and more MT4 guides are available in the Saxo Support Centre > Using our platforms > 3rd party tools.

MT4 sub-account orders

The margin utilisation for your MT4 sub-account is shared across your Saxo account (including all sub-accounts). Note that once your margin utilisation reaches 100%, there will be a Stop Out triggered and your margin positions across your Saxo account (including all sub-accounts) will be closed. The Stop Out will only be triggered via the Saxo platform and not on the MT4 platform.
All orders executed on your MT4 sub-account with Saxo via the MT4 platform will be reflected on the Saxo platform (e.g Account value, Profit/Loss, Exposure, Margin utilisation, Value date rollover). However, orders or other trade-related activity executed on your MT4 sub-account with Saxo via the Saxo platform will not be reflected on the MT4 platform.
