22 April 2016

Today, MetaQuotes Software Corp. has released a new version of the MetaTrader 5 trading platform build 1325. The most important feature added is the hedging option, which until recently was only supported in MetaTrader 4. Now the platform permits users to open opposite positions of the same financial instrument.


MetaTrader 5 Now Features Hedging Option

The introduction of the widely demanded hedging option is expected to encourage more traders and brokers to switch to MetaTrader 5. There are no more reasons to continue using MetaTrader 4: finally traders have the ability to use the familiar hedging method combined with all the advantages of the powerful MetaTrader 5 platform.

"Why use two platforms, when you can access all the required functionality in one of them?" commented Renat Fatkhullin, CEO of MetaQuotes Software Corp. "MetaTrader 5 is not just a multi-asset platform, now it offers specific features for different financial markets. The netting trading system is available for exchange traders, while forex traders can use the familiar hedging mode."

Also, the new MetaTrader 5 version allows testing trading robots and technical indicators using real tick history. The new feature increases the accuracy of reports on Expert Advisor testing and optimization thus reducing the risk of loss for traders. Another innovation in MetaTrader 5 is the built-in chat, which allows discussing financial news and trading strategies with other traders straight from the platform.

The new platform version also features a more convenient user guide with more illustrations, explanatory diagrams, interactive images, and videos. The updated user guide contains less text while providing more useful information.
