How do I install StereoTrader?

Please follow these steps:

  • Open a demo account with one of our certified brokers (please find the links on the main page)
  • If you don´t have MetaTrader 4 installed, please download MetaTrader from their homepage and install MetaTrader 4 first
  • Download StereoTrader (see menu -> download)
  • Execute the downloaded installation file and follow the instructions (usually StereoTrader_Install.exe or similar)
  • Start MetaTrader

Once you open a new chart, from now on StereoTrader is added automatically to each new chart.

How do I get the full version?

There is no difference between full version and demo version. Once you´ve purchased the license, please follow these steps:

  • Login to your live account
  • Open a new chart
  • StereoTrader will inform you that there is no license for this live account and provides some additional information at the bottom of the message
  • Send this additional information to the email address which was provided during the purchasing process
  • Your license will be activated

Is StereoTrader restricted to specific brokers?

Actually no. The only technical requirement is, that your broker supports MetaTrader.

Nevertheless there is a list of certified brokers which have been successfully testet with live accounts and which are registered at the internal symbol database of StereoTrader. This ensures that all calculations in view of point-values (stop loss, take profits, trailing etc.) and in view of money- and risk-management are correct. If such a broker conducts any changes at the tradeable instruments, the internal database of StereoTrader gets updated automatically.

If you use StereoTrader with an account with a non-certified broker, it may happen that some symbols cannot be recognized and interpreted automatically. In such case, the settings for the symbols must be set up manually at the symbol-settings dialog of StereoTrader. If this is necessary or not can be seen at the displayed spread. If the spread is zero or much too high, this is a good evidence that the settings for this symbol needs some adjustment. In most cases, it will not be necessary.

Furhtermore, there is another list of broker which have been at least tested with live accounts. If you find your broker here without any negative comments, this is already an evidence that you should not encounter any problems.

Is StereoTrader a standalone application?

StereoTrader uses MetaTrader only as base for charting and account access. By this, StereoTrader is rather a kind of a super-platform. Once installed, you still have all the charting functions and indications of MetaTrader, but the whole trading process, visually and logically, is completely taken over by StereoTrader at a level that MetaTrader does not achieve by itself.

Before you can use StereoTrader, please install MetaTrader 4 (Metaquotes). Then please follow the link at the download section to get you free copy of MetaTrader.

Is there a mobile version?

The focus of StereoTrader is mainly on precision, celerity and safety for professional daytrading. There is no mobile version, but nevertheless you can use the mobile versions of MetaTrader to manage positions.

If StereoTrader is active on your account too at the same time, it recognizes any changes instantly. In case of additional positions, it manages theses positions as if they were opened by StereoTrader itself, same for closed or partially closed positions.

I´ve purchased a license but still got the message, that no valid license could be found.

Once you´ve purchased the license, please follow these steps:

  • Login to your live account
  • Open a new chart
  • StereoTrader will inform you that there is no license for this live account and provides some additional information at the bottom of the message
  • Send this additional information to the email address which was provided during the purchasing process
  • Your license will be activated

Are there other pricing models?

Yes. Our IB partners offer their own conditions and sometimes also with special versions of StereoTrader. In many cases they offer rebates of up to 100%, whereby the rebate is typically based on the monthly trading volume.

Please find a list of partners on the main page.

Is there a Mac version?

MetaTrader 4 is designed for Microsoft Windows. Nevertheless it´s possible to use MetaTrader as well as StereoTrader with either Parallels Desktop for Mac or Wine (PlayOnMac).

If you download a so called Mac version of MetaTrader, this is always based on Wine. In such case, you need to install StereoTrader within this partition of Wine.
