How to Add Commodities to MetaTrader 4
Adding commodities to MT4 is very similar to the process described above for CFDs on shares and indices. Let’s say that you want to know how to add Gold and Silver to MetaTrader 4. Use the shortcut CTRL+U to open the ‘Symbols’ window. Look for the ‘Spot Metals’ folders. Expanding the ‘Spot Metals 1’ folder reveals ‘GOLD’ and ‘SILVER’.
Select whichever one you want to add and then click ‘Show’ and ‘Close’.
The specified instrument will now appear at the bottom of the price list in the ‘Market Watch’ window (press CTRL+M to open and close the ‘Market Watch’ window).
If in doubt, right-click on the ‘Market Watch’ window and select ‘Show All’, which will display all available instruments.
