What is EX4 file?

EX4 files are created for purpose of facilitating functioning of the MetaTrader – a software for online trading, which utilises such platforms as Forex, Futures or CFD. An EX4 file contains compiled code of program, written to be used by MetaTrader.

EX4 files can gather such elements like scripts or indicators. Within such files, one may also encounter an Expert Advisor, a sort of a bot, used for automatization of trading and analytical processes.

Compiling and decompiling EX4 files

EX4 files contain executable code, compiled from other files in a different format – MQ4. This process can be reversed, due to the fact, that it is possible to decompile EX4 files into original MQ4 files, using the PUREBEAM.BIZ EX4-TO-MQ4 decompiler.
