10 reasons to set up a professional economic calendar

We have expanded the economic calendar geographically by adding the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Switzerland on top of the United States, Japan and the European Union. China, Sweden, New Zealand, Mexico and Singapore will be available soon.

When a country is added, all economic indices that have a significant impact on the national currency in the calendar are included. Descriptions are professionally translated into 7 languages. This makes our solution different from many others which lack updating since their initial development.

Constant calendar improvements and development updates along with the addition of extra countries, are by no means the sole advantages of our service. You have 9 more reasons to add the calendar in your website:

2. Full description of events with forecasts and archived data

One of the key distinguishing features of the MetaQuotes calendar is data completeness. Each indicator has a separate page with a detailed description along with complete data on the event, including its influence on a particular currency. The description also includes a reference to the source, dates of the previous/next releases of the event, as well as its archived values: actual and forecast. For analysis clarity, the entire dynamics distribution is presented in the chart.

3. It is free

The development of a professional economic calendar is a complex task which requires considerable time and human resources. Due to the intensive development resources, some companies distribute such products on a commercial basis. Fortunately, this is not the case with our solution — we allow our customers to set it up for free.

4. No ads

Some financial resources offer their calendars for free, but with built-in advertising. The professional calendar from MetaQuotes offers no ads and has no plans to introduce them in the future.

5. Full translation into 7 languages

All data in our calendar, including event descriptions, are fully translated into English, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese and German. This allows traders from different countries to use the economic calendar in their native language. The complete translation favorably distinguishes our calendar from many other similar solutions which declare support for 10-15 languages. In reality, only interface elements are translated, while event names and descriptions remain in English.

The calendar from MetaQuotes is fully translated into 7 languages: English, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese and German

On top of the above, our solution accommodates a nice bonus. The widget adjusts to the browser's language and shows your website visitors the calendar in their native language. All this happens automatically without the need for any additional settings.


6. Traders remain in your website

Leading financial data providers feature their own economic calendars which can only be used in their own websites. Our calendar incorporates a convenient widget that can be easily embedded to your website. Traders will no longer have to browse through third-party websites searching for relevant information. Also, the service allows you to attract new website visitors.


7. Events from primary sources

Our calendar receives news first-hand with no delays. No intermediary websites are used. Each event description has a link to the source. This operation mode is difficult to be implemented, but it guarantees complete reliability and accuracy of the collected data.

The MetaQuotes calendar receives news first-hand with no delays

8. Time zone selection

The MetaQuotes calendar publishes events for countries located in different time zones: United States, United Kingdom, Japan and Australia among others. Important events tracking is maintained via local time adaptation. Manual adaptation of time zones is also possible. This feature provides your visitors with protection against missing news releases.

The MetaQuotes calendar allows changing the time zone manually

9. Calendar auto update

Our calendar is updated automatically immediately after a new event appears in the source. This is different from free versions of some other calendars which need to be updated manually. Our service relieves traders from the necessity of constantly re-loading the page, while it avoids the related negative feedback and an excessive load in the website.


10. Easy installation

The calendar can be set up in just a few clicks. Specify the desired calendar width/height and the default period (the current day or week) here, and you are ready to go. The remaining parameters are adjusted automatically. Simply copy the generated code and paste it in your web page.

Provide your website visitors with a ready-to-use tool for monitoring important macroeconomic events. It is free, it has no ads and it is translated into 7 languages!

MetaTrader 5 in South Africa: GT247.com launches the multi-asset platform

South Africa's top online stockbroker GT247.com has replaced its ageing legacy trading platforms with MetaTrader 5. The company's top management believe that MetaTrader 5 will enable them to remain in the sophisticated trading space, whilst offering their existing clients and new traders a world class functionality-rich trading platform.

GT247.com launched the first version of their own platform back in 2001. The company was the lowest cost online retail broker for traders and the pioneer of CFD trading in the region, allowing South African traders the ability to trade international markets in local currency. However, over the years the company realized that the legacy trading platform started falling behind the times:

"We struggled to keep up with the features and benefits offered by other trading platforms and as such clients looked further afield for brokers with a more sophisticated system," says GT247.com chief of trading, Bradley Leather. "Our old platform simply didn't offer enough. Switching to MetaTrader 5 will now allow us to compete on a level playing field."

Bradley Leather, GT247.com Chief of Trading

Bradley Leather, GT247.com Chief of Trading

Leather says GT24.com will benefit greatly from the platform's seamless integration, rich functionality and mobile capabilities.

"Previously, we had different platforms for CFD and spread trading, as well as different portals for client service, admin and technical support. MetaTrader 5 combines all of these platforms and portals into one. Our old platforms were easy to use, but they were very limited in functionality. They were good for traders who simply wanted to buy and sell, or look at charts, but they didn't appeal to traders who wanted to plug in algorithmic strategies. Now, MetaTrader 5 is able to satisfy all categories of traders."

FXTM offers MetaTrader traders Cryptocurrency CFDs: BTC/USD, ETH/USD, LTC/USD

Global award-winning forex broker, FXTM, now offers clients the opportunity to trade CFDs on Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin against the US dollar. The launch of this product coincides with a recent surge in demand for digital currencies.

"The implementation of Bitcoin's SegWit2x solution on the 1st August, designed to optimize data storage on the network and to boost the cryptocurrency's transaction capacity in the long term, was arguably the biggest driver of that month's rally," FXTM's Global Head of Currency Strategy and Market Research, Jameel Ahmad, comments on the broker's latest product offering. "Within four days of release, the number of Bitcoin Cash tokens in circulation totaled US$7.6bn, further igniting investor interest in both currencies. The result has been a significant increase in demand for cryptocurrency trading instruments. FXTM was well placed to meet this demand with the planned launch of our Cryptocurrency CFDs in September. This newest product is a reflection of our commitment to innovate and grow in line with the needs of our traders."

Jameel Ahmad

Jameel Ahmad, FXTM’s Global Head of Currency Strategy and Market Research

"There is some debate over the sustainability of current cryptocurrency rallies. However, I think the early enthusiasm for this innovative asset is a reaction to one of the most interesting developments the financial markets have seen in years. Their volatility is often precipitated by knee-jerk reactions from regulators and market sentiment, but cryptocurrencies should become more stable when regulators and governments have figured out how to integrate them into the current financial system. A number of Central Banks, including the Bank of Russia, South African Reserve Bank, Belarus Central Bank and Sweden’s Riksbank have all signaled interest in cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. A consortium of Japanese Banks are reportedly developing a national digital currency that will be launched in time for the 2020 Olympics. Cryptocurrencies will eventually find a permanent niche in financial markets. As a broker dedicated to delivering exceptional customer service and market-leading products, FXTM is proud to be one of the first to embrace cryptocurrency trading instruments in the MetaTrader platforms."

MetaTrader 5 Trading Signals Redefined

A new version of the Signals service for the MetaTrader platforms has been launched on the MQL5.com website. The updated version features a new designed and a more convenient display of information. The old-fashioned table with a large number of figures was replaced by a lightweight tile view displaying a collection of the most popular signal parameters.

MetaTrader 5 Trading Signals Redefined

The trader behavior analysis has revealed that traders only pay attention to from 3 to 5 most important values during their primary selection of signals. A universal measure of a signal's success is the number of subscribers, as well as its profitability, minimal risk and stability. The MetaTrader 5 Signals showcase now features these important metrics, while detailed statistics are available on the signal description page. Now, traders can easily choose signals from the showcase, and then thoroughly analyze and compare selected signals using detailed statistics.

Detailed statistics of trading signals

A new reliability parameter has been added to the MetaTrader 5 Signals Showcase for a quick evaluation of a signal. This aggregate value measures multiple parameters to simplify the comparison of signals in terms of investment reliability.

New reliability parameter

For example, in case of a large load on the deposit (Max Load %) or a huge increase in the monthly growth, this value is reduced. Conversely, a moderate monthly growth and deposit load normally reduce investment risks, so reliability is higher in this case.

Thus, the new showcase of MetaTrader 5 Signals enables a much faster preliminary search and analysis of signal providers. The new design, as well as the filtering and sorting options allow you to quickly find the desired signal among thousands of available offers. In addition, we have preserved the previous table view, so conservative traders can switch to their preferred format.

The new showcase of MetaTrader Signals

The updated MetaTrader 5 Signals showcase is already available on MQL5.com and it will be added to trading platforms after a behavioral study and the analysis of traders' feedback.

We invite everyone to test the re-designed Signals service on the website, from where you can also subscribe to a selected signal.

Brokeree Solutions releases Bitcoin feed for MetaTrader 5 brokers

Brokeree Solutions has launched a portfolio of institutional solutions for MetaTrader 5, including the cryptocurrency feed (Bitcoin). In addition, the company has the following offers for brokers switching to the new platform:

Andrey Kamyshanov

Andrey Kamyshanov, CEO of Brokeree Solutions

According to the top management of Brokeree Solutions, cryptocurrency markets are becoming increasingly popular among traders, while the rapidly growing demand for MetaTrader 5 makes it necessary for integrators to offer brokers a variety of applications for the platform. This is how the idea of developing the Brokeree Cryptocurrency Feed has been born. The feed is to stream Bitcoin data from cryptocurrency providers directly to the MetaTrader 5 platform.

"Since 2013 we’ve been working with cryptocurrency providers and supporting brokers in feed integration", says Andrey Kamyshanov, CEO of Brokeree Solutions. "During this time everyone witnessed a number of attacks, lawsuits, and shutdowns of crypto-exchanges: Mt.Gox, Cryptsy, Bitfinex, Bitstamp, BTC-e. Understandably, such cases combined with the unclear legal status of cryptocurrencies make people skeptical. Nonetheless, it’s evident that today’s blockchain technologies are continually improving, the numerous advantages are no secret to those in the know. Cryptocurrency markets are developing at an incredible pace and becoming increasingly popular among traders. Some of the financial companies are still skeptical about cryptocurrencies, but we believe that digital currency trading is already an essential part of financial markets. Our cryptocurrency feed for MetaTrader 5 will assist institutional customers in cryptocurrency market penetration and growth".

Leading MetaTrader 5 brokers launch cryptocurrency trading

Bitcoin trading gains popularity, and the impressive volatility of cryptocurrencies attracts more and more traders. To satisfy this trend, MetaTrader 5 brokers started to offer cryptocurrency trading to their clients. Last month, several leading market players have launched Bitcoin, Dashcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple trading through the MetaTrader 5 platform.

The rapidly growing and highly volatile cryptocurrency market is seen as a promising alternative to traditional trading instruments. Over the past 9 months, Bitcoin price has risen more than three times. The dynamics of Ethereum is even more impressive, which started with 8 USD at the beginning of the year and has reached the current price of 298 USD. Naturally, such dramatic price changes attract both Forex professionals and beginners.

"Cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology may be the future of payments, but MetaTrader 5 is already the future of trading platforms," says Jens Chrzanowski, Management Board Member of Admiral Markets. "The platform provides extensive features and is future-proofed for the coming years. Last, but not least, our Supreme Edition add-on package is also available for our new MetaTrader 5, boosting the platform with over 60 dynamic trading tools."

Jens Chrzanowski, Management Board Member of Admiral Markets Group AS

"Now, trading cryptocurrencies means keeping pace with the times. This opportunity has become available in MetaTrader 5, which is one of the most advanced and highly technological multi-asset trading platforms," comments Kirill Kirichenka, the RoboForex Product Manager. "Cryptocurrency trading is now available to our clients 24 hours a day, 5 days a week. The hype around cryptocurrencies is extremely high, because now it is the most volatile market, which gives traders a chance to earn high profits. Is it another dot-com inflated bubble or a new reality? The answer will become clear later, as soon as the cryptocurrency market is completely formed. In the meantime, the market is shaping up. However, no matter how the situation develops in the future, it is clear that the priceless technologies brought by cryptocurrencies will stay with us."

Alexander Kapustin, the head of Marketing in the BCS Forex Operations department, also commented the launch of new symbols, "The launch of Bitcoin trading on BCS Forex MetaTrader 5 accounts is more than just a desire to follow the trend. It is first of all the reaction to an overwhelming number of customer requests. Our specialists have chosen the most balanced and profitable conditions for BTCUSD and BTCEUR trading. Cryptocurrencies are new trading instruments, and now their movements can hardly be subject to technical and fundamental analysis. BCS Forex provides clients everything they need to successfully trade Bitcoin, while urging them to carefully follow proper risk management rules when trading cryptocurrencies."

Angus Walker, IC Markets Director

"We're extremely pleased to now be giving traders access to Bitcoin, Ethereum, Lite Coin, Dash Coin and Bitcoin Cash with flexible trading conditions," adds Angus Walker, IC Markets Director. "The Cryptocurrency market is unlike any other offered by IC Markets. Completely unregulated, incredibly volatile and driven primarily by the fear and greed of retail speculators. Over 2017 we have seen the market cap of many cryptos soar to record highs, and at the same time we've seen governments and regulators across the world beginning to embrace this digital currency. With this in mind it was an easy decision to add the largest and most popular cryptocurrencies to our growing multi-asset offering."
