Opening EX4 files

Did your computer fail to open an EX4 file? We explain what EX4 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your EX4 files.

What is an EX4 file?

Files that contain the .ex4 file extension are associated with the online MetaTrader trading platform software application. The MetaTrader application is an online program that is used to trade Forex, Futures and CFD markets in the online environment.

The EX4 files contain code that have been compiled from different MQ4 files. These files contain Expert Advisor Files and can be executed by the trading platform application.

Some of the EX4 files that are on a user's computer are pre-written files that are included with the MetaTrader application. The EX4 files can also be custom files that are written for the MetaTrader software.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
