Battle of the Platforms: Metatrader vs cTrader

FTMO Trader Scouting
Lets be honest trading with the right platform is crucial to our performance in terms of what we can do on the platforms, I have been testing out which platform is best suited to my needs and I have reached a point where I would like to find out other peoples views on these popular platforms. Whether you are a beginner or experienced trader, share your views and experiences on these two platforms.

Lets structure the conversation around the following categories :

- Charting Tools
-User Interface
-Trade Indicators
-Order execution
-Trading styles (scalping, HFT, swing trading,etc)
-Automated trading

Or any other features.
One thing that cTrader has that I wish MT4 had was the ability to set risk % for your trades straight on the platform rather than needing a calculator to work out position size. Small thing but creates less friction for trading.
That would be an excellent addition to mt4 it's a no brainer not sure why they haven't done this already
Ctrader has some nice features, but still can't beat good old MT4. I love the simplicity, has the most EAs and Indicators, plus it's the most widely used
