"As Info Yatirim, we have been using MetaTrader 4 for almost three years and finally got our MetaTrader 5 three months ago", says Can Alp, founder of Info Yatirim.

Among them are the international Forex and CFD broker IFCMarkets, Brazilian ModalMais, STP broker Caveo Brokerage from Kuwait and the Hong Kong-based STP Broker Perfekt Capital Limited.

"In addition to our own NetTradeX platform and MetaTrader 4, IFCMarkets now offers trading on MetaTrader 5 significantly enhancing the possibilities of our traders", says Agasi Vardanyan, Executive Director of IFCMarkets. "MetaTrader 5 provides a number of new features, improved functionality and expanded set of tools making the trading process more flexible and comfortable. The powerful algorithmic trading is implemented in the platform by means of the built-in MQL5 object-oriented development environment opening new horizons for professional traders".

"We are very excited with MetaTrader 5 launch at ModalMais and we expect it to become the most used platform by our clients in a very short period of time", adds Rodrigo Puga, CEO of Modal DTVM. "We have a huge demand from active traders and from Expert Advisors' users. Brazilian market lacks platforms like MetaTrader 5, where customers can easily program and execute their strategies with speed and assertiveness. We had invested in a solid and robust infrastructure to meet the highest standards and to offer the best MetaTrader experience for the most active traders in Brazil with the lowest possible latency".

"As a Kuwaiti company, our founders are traders with more than 10 years of experience", notes Hossam El Kashif, CEO of Caveo Brokerage commenting on switching to MetaTrader 5. "This reflected on our mission to make it easier to trade starting from our trading platform and moving to wide range of services. At the end of 2016, our plan was to move forward to better experience of trading. We realized that MetaTrader 5 is our solution once MetaQuotes announced that the hedging is now available. We realized that now we can offer better technology with more trading instruments including futures and stocks beside the regular Forex trading conditions that the clients used to have in MetaTrader 4. MetaTrader 5 will provide traders with the ability to trade US stocks, Futures, ETFs, FOREX and CFDs.”

"The introduction of the widely demanded MetaTrader 5 hedging option has expanded opportunities for Forex traders bringing more traders to the platform", says Mallikarjun T. Patil, CEO of Perfekt Capital Limited. Along with other powerful platform tools like Depth of Market and standard timeframes, the hedging feature will give more confidence and flexibility in trading. Now, it is possible to have multiple positions per symbol, including opposite directed ones if the price moves against a trader".

MetaQuotes Software opens its new office in Bulgaria

The main tasks of our office in Sofia are raising the offered services to a qualitatively new level as well as attracting brokers and financial organizations from the neighboring Balkan countries.

MetaQuotes Software opens its new office in Bulgaria

"The decision for this investment was based on personal observations of the parent company that Bulgaria's economy is actively developing", — says Emre Peser, Head of Metapenta Software. "There are several brokers using MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 in Bulgaria at the moment. But I also see a lot of potential opportunities to expand the market share of MetaQuotes Software Corp. products. This will be our main objective. The company will work as an agent of MetaQuotes and as such should serve to implement the business strategy and tasks set by its parent company".

"We are pleased to offer such a high-tech product as MetaTrader 5 as we are constantly trying to provide the best trading conditions for our customers", — notes Petar Krustev, Executive Director of Benchmark Finance. "We launched the platform as early as 2012, and so far we have implemented all the additional applications, such as mobile versions for iOS and Android. This year, we have switched to the updated MetaTrader 5 featuring hedging. Besides, we are the first ones who offered the Web-based MetaTrader 5 application in Bulgaria".

"Our customers also prefer the MetaTrader 5 platform", — adds Pavel Nikolov, Manager of the International financial markets department at EuroFinance. "The ability to trade in different financial instruments across a platform is always an advantage, therefore the transition from the MetaTrader 4 to the MetaTrader 5 multi-asset platform is a great idea.

The first MetaTrader 5 broker in Germany — FXFlat

The advent of MetaTrader 5 is going full speed with FXFlat becoming the first German broker to offer an alternative for MetaTrader 4. The company is a full-fledged STP broker regulated by the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) with the FXFlat Wertpapierhandelsbank GmbH license. CapTrader – which is a part of the company – offers stocks, options and futures trading since 2009. According to Rafael Alexander Neustadt, CEO of FXFlat, the oneZero Hub gateway for interaction with Interactive Brokers is an additional argument in favor of MetaTrader 5 since it allows trading on major stock exchanges around the world.

The first MetaTrader 5 broker in Germany — FXFlat

"FXFlat is the first Germany based broker offering MetaTrader 5 including the Web and Mobile Terminal solution", — says Rafael Neustadt. "Since our huge success in the last few years with MetaTrader 4, this is a logical step to expand the product offering. We will utilize the Multi Asset capabilities of MetaTrader 5 and the Interactive Brokers API to offer Futures and Stocks trading on MetaTrader 5 along with the CFDs and Forex we just launched within 2017".

“Although MetaTrader 4 is still one of the most popular trading platforms in Germany, I see a definitive uptick in traders looking for MetaTrader 5 brokers", — adds Sebastian Hell, trader and owner of meta-trader-5.de, a blog about MetaTrader 5 in Germany. "Many traders I know like to use both platforms nowadays. I am sure that MetaTrader 5 has a very bright future amongst German traders because it offers more possibilities for traders to build and create complex trading systems as well as more markets like CFDs, FX and on-exchange products".

Another three brokers XM.com, IC Markets and Hedge Total switched to MetaTrader 5

Migration of major brokers to MetaTrader 5 is well underway. On April 2017, XM.com, IC Markets and Hedge Total have announced the launch of the multi-asset HFT platform.

"It is something we have been patiently expecting for a long time, and I truly believe it will be a game changer for XM", — says Chris Zacharia, Marketing Director of XM Group. "As noted by myself in a previous interview, I feel the predecessor of MT5, the globally acknowledged MT4, is a great platform and has proved itself, but it could only satisfy the needs of a certain audience and that would be FX traders, while MT5 is open to a whole new audience in addition to FX traders. Only judging from the audience it will serve as a multi asset class platform, I would say it's the platform of choice as we speak".

Another two top brokers XM.com and IC Markets switched to MetaTrader 5

"Following the popularity of the MetaTrader 4 trading platform, we are proud to announce the long-awaited release of MetaTrader 5", — notes Angus Walker, Director of IC Markets. "We are extremely excited about this release as it is in line with our goal of providing traders with the absolute best tools and conditions to succeed in the markets. Improved functionality of the trading platform means our clients will gain access to advanced trading tools, hedging capabilities, and new financial products".

"Hedge Total is a licensed broker offering its clients and partners the MetaTrader 5 platform with the market depth since 2011", — adds Tim Davis, Head of the Dealing Department at Hedge Total. "We believe that this is the most advanced trading platform, while adding the ability to place locks has also made it the most efficient one for profitable and safe trading. You do not need to study physics and laws of motion to drive a car. And you do not need any of that to trade in MetaTrader 5. Our team is grateful to traders choosing the MetaTrader 5 platform and enjoying the best trading conditions on Forex".

Vincent Yohanes Chandra, Java Global Futures

"Frankly, Indonesian market is still very new to MetaTrader 5, since its members are mostly familiar with MetaTrader 4", — says Vincent Yohanes Chandra, COO of Java Global Futures. "Initially, we faced a lot of rejections as I think it is very natural that people are quite resistant to changes (even if they are for good). However, we have been working very hard in educating our clients and marketing the benefits of MetaTrader 5 compared to MetaTrader 4, and it has been showing results over recent time. We strongly believe that adopting MetaTrader 5 is the right decision and, of course, we hope MetaQuotes will greatly support us as always. Customer Service is not a department, it is a philosophy in our company. We strongly believe in propelling service delivery through robust technology; MetaTrader 5 is surely one of the vital components in delivering quality service".

"According to our information, MetaTrader 5 prospects in Indonesia are quite promising, since it is an updated version of MetaTrader 4 which adds more features than the previous one", — adds Mr. Tan, Analytics Manager at the Indonesian Brokerforex.com portal. "We think, MetaTrader 5 can be a success in Indonesia, since traders in Indonesia are growing as well as brokerage firms".

Just2Trade, RoboForex and FreshForex already attract traders using MQL5 coupons

One month ago we announced the launch of MQL5 coupons allowing brokers to support their traders willing to use the MetaTrader services. Just2Trade, RoboForex and FreshForex companies have become the first participants to implement the new loyalty program and apply coupons to motivate traders.

"By offering coupons to our existing and potential clients, we are pursuing two main objectives: attracting new traders and increasing the loyalty of our existing clients", — says Evgeny Zhilin, Head of Operations at Just2Trade, commenting on launching the coupons program. "Right from the onset, the new system has proved to be a powerful marketing tool improving the company stats in both quality and quantity. It provides a great way to stimulate clients to connect to strategies of successful traders. Our clients are able to see for themselves that Forex provides opportunities for stable profit if traded wisely. We offer 50 USD coupons for traders having at least 1 000 USD on their deposits. The coupons can be used to pay for the first month of a signal subscription".

Just2Trade, RoboForex and FreshForex already attract traders using MQL5 coupons 

"In recent years, RoboForex has been developing a series of investment products, and a copy trading service is one notable example", — notes Vitaly Avtaykin, Managing Director of RoboForex. "This strategic direction shows a stable and dynamic growth of popularity among our clients, therefore we welcome the launch of the "MQL5 coupons" service from the industry leader — the MetaQuotes Software company. Several of our traders are at the Top of the MQL5 Signals service and have thousands of subscribers with the total amount of managed funds exceeding 12 million USD. Due to such a high demand for the product, we decided to launch a promotional campaign and distribute 2017 trading signals coupons for 40 USD each among RoboForex Ltd active clients".

"The new Coupons service from MetaQuotes is a convenient way to receive products and services for the popular MetaTrader platforms", — adds Alexander Goryachev, senior analyst at FreshForex. "General-purpose MONEY coupons for 50 USD have sparked the greatest interest among our clients since they allow refilling MQL5 accounts and paying for any services and purchases. There are also many customers willing to buy scripts and Expert Advisors. In order to popularize the new service, we are raffling off 10 coupons for $50 among our clients from March 14 to April 13. FreshForex has been working on Forex for 12 years already. The benefit of our customers is ultimately our benefit as well! Therefore, we follow the market trends in order not to miss exciting and practical gifts for our clients".

A number of other major brokers are actively testing the service at the moment preparing special offers for traders. Stay in touch! The number of companies offering coupons will soon increase significantly.

Polish integrator Empirica Software starts development of institutional solutions for MetaTrader 5

Following Tools for Brokers, another team of software developers has announced the development of brokerage solutions for MetaTrader 5. The Polish integrator Empirica Software has become the next institutional software provider for companies using the advanced multi-asset platform. The trend becomes more visible as more brokers actively switching to MetaTrader 5 generate a demand for applications expanding and complementing the platform features, while tech service providers strive to satisfy this demand by pushing further the development of the platform and its infrastructure.

Empirica Software starts development of institutional solutions for MetaTrader 5

"For the last 6 years we have strengthened our market position as leading software partner for financial institutions and FinTech companies. We have developed a very strong algorithmic engine, that has already made one of our customers the fastest market maker on Warsaw Stock Exchange. We are pioneers in developing intelligent robo-technology based on machine learning. Now in cooperation with MetaQuotes we will support brokerage firms and investment companies in MetaTrader server extensions that will meet their specific requirements and needs in relation to the forex market.

Tools for Brokers launches a portfolio of MetaTrader 5 brokerage solutions

Tools for Brokers has developed a set of solutions for the MetaTrader 5 trading platform to provide brokers with additional services and simplify their transition to the new technology. For the last seven years, the integrator team has been developing MetaTrader 4 plugins for over 250 companies around the world and has been among the first tech providers that recognized the potential of the next-generation multi-asset platform. The offered institutional solutions for MetaTrader 5 brokers includes:

  • Bonus Manager for reducing risks by canceling credit bonuses in case of unfavorable conditions
  • Multi-Level Agent Commission for creating a hierarchical partnership system
  • PAMM for creating an asset management system on the server
  • Bridge Aggregator — the gateway for connecting multiple platforms (MetaTrader 4/5) to multiple liquidity providers

"Our company has an exceptionally positive experience of working with MetaTrader 5", — says Aleksey Kutsenko, the founder and CEO of Tools for Brokers. "MetaQuotes Software has developed a brand new product featuring significant advantages in terms of convenience and functionality. I believe, MetaTrader 5 is a must for all brokers really planning for the future".

Among the many benefits of the platform, the Tools for Brokers team highlights the ability to select between aggregate and hedging positions on client accounts. This function allows for efficient arrangement of work on several financial markets simultaneously: ​Forex, CFDs, stocks and futures. Thus, the platform is able to meet the requirements of a wide variety of customers - from novice traders to hedge funds and large institutional clients.

Aleksey Kutsenko, Tools for Brokers

Besides, the developers from Tools for Brokers point out that unlike MetaTrader 4, the new platform has a modular architecture and its various components can be installed on different physical servers. First, this capability improves the platform performance and resilience: if one component suddenly fails, others continue working. Second, this means better protection against DDOS attacks since it is much more difficult to attack multiple servers at once. According to the integrator company team, another key advantage of MetaTrader 5 is that the 64-bit version of the server allows using a larger amount of RAM for storing considerable data volumes, as well as rendering services to more simultaneously connected clients.

"This year, the further development of MetaTrader 5 additions and plug-ins will be one of our key areas", — adds Aleksey Kutsenko. "Tools for Brokers is ready to provide any services related to the platform support and development of necessary solutions".

Do you already use coupons issued by your broker to pay for MetaTrader 5 services?

During the iFX EXPO Asia 2017 in Hong Kong, we officially announced the launch of the Coupons service. This new service allows brokers to support their traders willing to purchase applications and services for the MetaTrader platforms — from virtual hosting to trading signals subscriptions. The new service is an important tool for motivating and encouraging active traders, as well as expanding a client base.

MQL5 Coupons

A coupon is a text code to be inserted in the payment form on the MQL5.community or the MetaTrader platforms. Brokers can generate 4 types of coupons that you can use in your payments:

  • HOSTING — for paying the virtual server rental fees. For example, HOSTING-30-DSJK-B8AB-CEFC-C399-60BE — coupon for 30 USD to pay for virtual hosting.
  • MARKET — for the purchase of trading robots and technical indicators in the Market. For example, MARKET-50-CFCB-B7HB-CEFC-C519-72UC — coupon for 50 USD to pay for Market products.
  • SIGNAL — for subscribing to trading signals. For example, SIGNAL-40-IOPX-B1AB-GAPC-62BE — coupon for 40 USD to pay for a signal subscription.
  • MONEY — for depositing funds to an MQL5.com account to pay for any service including Freelance and MQL5 CLoud Network. For example, MONEY-50-2222-7777-8888-3333-2222 — general-purpose coupon for 50 USD used to deposit funds to an MQL5 account.

Using the service is simple: a broker generates a coupon and sends it to you along with the necessary instructions. Insert the obtained code to the payment form:

"The addition of hedging meets the aspirations of many traders, current MetaTrader 5 users as well as others," adds Ricardo Evangelista, International Desk Manager at ActivTrades. "We believe it will appeal to many, including those currently using MetaTrader 4. From the early days, following the launch of MetaTrader 5, the request for hedging has been a constant. It was something desired by traders interested in exploring the potential of the platform but put off by the restriction on hedging.

Time & Sales in MetaTrader 5: a new tool for analyzing exchange markets

Last Friday, the new MetaTrader 5 trading platform build 1375 with the Time & Sales option was officially released. The Time & Sales feature in the Market Depth window enables users to view the real-time list of all exchange transactions.

The Time & Sales list provides in-depth trading data, including records on time, direction, price and volume of each transaction. Trade volumes are displayed as a histogram, with a color coding of different trade directions:

Time & Sales in MetaTrader 5

Time & Sales provide a detailed view of trading activity on various price levels. An increasing activity of buyers and sellers can indicate the upcoming rise or fall in security prices. Trade volumes and frequency can provide an indication of the current market sentiment and emphasize the importance of individual price levels. Although the Time & Sales option is primarily used by intraday traders, it also provides useful data for long-term traders who prefer to hold their positions open for a few days. In addition to the visual analysis of Time & Sales, the featured data can be exported to a CSV file for further analysis using third-party applications, such as MS Excel.

If you want to evaluate the new functionality, open a demo account with MetaQuotes-Demo and updated your MetaTrader 5. Your broker's platform should be updated to version 1375, in order to enable proper operation of Time & Sales on live accounts.

Start using the Time & Sales option now, and take full advantage of the MetaTrader 5 exchange trading capabilities!

Largest brokers acknowledge the explosive growth of MetaTrader 5 popularity

Recently, one of the domestic Russian brokers Solid Financial Services has launched the MetaTrader 5 trading platform with the hedging system of position accounting. Following RoboForex, Alpari, FX Choice and other companies, SFS has become one of the first foreign exchange market participants to offer traders the ability to perform oppositely directed deals on a single symbol on real accounts in the fifth generation platform.

The new accounting system has been added to MetaTrader 5 at the end of April and has already received positive feedback from market participants. For example, one of the largest international Forex brokers — Alpari has noted the significant growth of the number of new accounts. This confirms that currency traders actively use locking and prefer brokers offering such an opportunity.

The interest in MetaTrader 5 has been sparked among exchanges as well. In less than a year, the number of brokers offering MetaTrader 5 on DGCX (Dubai Gold Commodities Exchange) has increased from 1 to 10, while growing from 1 to 5 on PMEX (Pakistan Mercantile Exchange), including the largest market maker of the exchange — ACM Gold. A number of major international and national stock brokers are preparing to launch the platform in the near future, while the rest are planning its implementation.

Such an excitement among Forex and exchange brokers is quite natural since MetaTrader 5 features the complete set of tools for trading in all financial markets. Powerful trading system, versatile technical and fundamental analysis, algorithmic and social trading, as well as other advantages of the popular platform have attracted traders from the very beginning. The recent advent of the hedging system and the web version allowing traders to work via any browser have dramatically accelerated the process of switching to MetaTrader 5.

Boris Shilov, Chief Executive Officer of Alpari

"Alpari has decided to rely on MetaTrader 5 and turned out to be right" — says Boris Shilov, Chief Executive Officer of Alpari. "In May 2016, MetaQuotes has released the long-awaited MetaTrader 5 platform version with bidirectional trading. This feature is familiar to most traders and maximizes the number of available strategies. Alpari has been the first one to offer the platform version on the market. Our clients are satisfied with the high speed of order execution, while we are satisfied with the increasing number of newly opened accounts. I believe that MetaTrader 5 is a worthy alternative to highly popular MetaTrader 4, and I am sure that MetaTrader 5 will become the key platform for our clients worldwide".

Vitaly Avtaykin, managing director of RoboForex

"The ability to open hedge accounts has been much anticipated by brokers and traders. RoboForex team believes that MetaQuotes has made the right decision by adding this functionality to their MetaTrader 5 platform. We have no doubts that this step will contribute to the shift of industry standards from MetaTrader 4 to MetaTrader 5 in the near future" — states Vitaly Avtaykin, managing director of RoboForex. "This is already confirmed by our actual experience: we are offering MetaTrader 5 hedge accounts since May 26, and they already comprise 54% of the total number of accounts, while their turnover is much higher compared to netting accounts".

"Successful companies always meet the needs of their clients" — states Gaies Chreis, COO of MetaQuotes Software Corp. "We are glad that many brokers were quick to see traders' needs and start offering the MetaTrader 5 trading platform. In doing so, they demonstrated their understanding of market trends and desire to provide traders with the most advanced technology".

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.

Meet the MetaTrader 5 beta version with hedging and the new user guide

MetaTrader 5 beta build 1281 featuring the hedging system has been released. Unlike the usual netting system, the hedging one allows conducting multiple trades even on opposite direction of the same symbol. Now, you can use the netting model to trade exchange instruments and the hedging one for currency trading using the MetaTrader 5 institutional platform.

The new system of positions is similar to the widely known system applied in MetaTrader 4. However, MetaTrader 5 offers enhanced order management capabilities: filling orders using multiple deals, including partial fills. If a trader has an open position at a symbol and performs a new deal, a new position is opened. That is the core idea behind the MetaTrader 5 hedging system. The trader can set Stop Loss and Take Profit levels, as well as see the profit level for each of the positions.

We invite everyone to join the public testing of the updated MetaTrader 5 multi-asset platform. In order to join the test, create a demo account on the MetaQuotes-Demo server and connect to it.

If you identify an error, please inform us via the mql5.com forum or create a Service Desk request.

Create a demo account with hedging on MetaQuotes-Demo

While testing, please consider the following:

  1. Subscription to trading signals from hedging accounts does not work.
  2. Trading on a new hedge account works correctly only in MetaTrader 5 build 1281 and later builds.
  3. Some trading robots may trade incorrectly on a hedge account.
  4. Scripts, Expert Advisors, and indicators compiled using the new MetaEditor build will not run on virtual hosting.

Apart from hedging, the MetaTrader 5 beta version features the updated user guide with tons of illustrations and video tutorials. Simply click F1 to get answers to most of your questions and enhance your knowledge of the platform.

With the updated MetaTrader 5, it is no longer necessary to use different platforms for Forex and stock exchange. Now, this is a one-stop solution for trading on a variety of financial markets.

Download the new beta build, try all the new features, and let us know the test results. With your help, we will make MetaTrader 5 even better!

I am sure that many investors and traders will appreciate the convenience and functionality of the trading platform, and will also use it to significantly improve their trading results", — says Otkritie Broker CEO Yuri Mintsev.

"We always strive to expand our cooperation with our clients. Launching the MetaTrader 5 trading platform on MOEX Equity and Bond Market is an important event both for MetaQuotes and Otkritie Broker clients. A year ago, Otkritie Broker already granted its traders the opportunity to trade the foreign exchange market via MetaTrader 5.

Updated MetaTrader 4 Web platform: support for technical indicators and 9 new languages

The developments on expanding the web platform features are in full swing. Our immediate and most important objective is to provide web traders with technical analysis tools. To address this task, we have started adding technical indicators into the web platform.

We have completely revised the chart display model making it possible to apply multiple indicators simultaneously. The indicators can be displayed in a selected symbol window, as well as in a separate one. The ability to configure the indicator parameters has also been implemented. At the moment, our developers and QA specialists are thoroughly testing all the features to ensure stable operation of analytical tools.

The Moving Average trend indicator is already available in test mode — and this is just the beginning. MACD (Moving Average Convergence/Divergence) oscillator is to become the second tool to be implemented, so that it is possible to assess the operation of indicators working in a separate window. Further on, we will gradually add other technical indicators as all necessary preparations have already been made. Thus, web traders will be able to use a similar set of technical tools for quotes analysis as the ones in the MetaTrader 4/5 desktop versions.


Updated MetaTrader 4 Web platform: support for technical indicators and 9 new languages


Additional new features include:

  1. The interface has been translated into 9 new languages ​​- Arabic, Bulgarian, French, Indonesian, Malay, Polish, Thai, Turkish, and Vietnamese.
  2. All open charts can now be observed as a separate list. To do this, click the button in the upper right corner of the toolbox.
  3. The chart settings are now saved for the entire web terminal rather than a certain trade account.

Stay tuned! The new batch of technical indicators is to be added soon.

Updated MetaTrader 4 iPhone

A few days ago, MetaTrader 5 iPhone users received an opportunity to arrange a chat conversation with any MQL5.community member. This feature has become a great alternative to paid SMS messages. Now, the same functionality is available for MetaTrader 4 iPhone mobile terminal users.

Implementation of MetaQuotes ID (a unique and randomly generated identifier) ensures that this type of messaging is secure and prevents spam. Each user receives MetaQuotes ID when installing the mobile version of the terminal. It may look like this: 8B4E6A3D, or like this: F7ACA7F2. You can find your ID in Settings->Messages section. 

The advantages of the chat in MetaTrader 4 mobile version include instant delivery and free messages. The most important thing is that you are not tied to your phone number, as you can always use your MetaQuotes ID on any device.


Chat with MQL5.com Users    Classification of Messages in MetaTrader 4 iPhone
        

Specify the desired user's login in a message recipient's section to send a message directly to this user's MQL5.com profile or a mobile device. To do this, both you and your recipient should have MetaQuotes IDs specified in MQL5.com profiles. Thus, you can communicate with any MQL5.community member at any time and at any place via mql5.com web site or a mobile device.

Speed, convenience and security - these are the main advantages of MetaTrader 4 iPhone and MetaTrader 5 iPhone internal chat. Download the latest version of MetaTrader 4 for iOS via AppStore and try it.

Another new feature of MetaTrader 4 iPhone is classification of messages. Now, all messages received from the system are divided into five types according to their senders:

  • Chat – conversation with MQL5.com users
  • Broker – broker's messages
  • Terminal – alerts and notifications from launched Expert Advisors
  • Community – various messages from MQL5.com, including depositing funds on the account or execution of an ordered work
  • Other – anything that is not related to the previous 4 types.

Besides, MetaTrader 4 iPhone now has the improved server list download and the ability to change an account password. Localization is also going at full speed: the application now features Polish and Czech languages.

The new socialization features will soon be introduced in Android applications – MetaTrader 4 Android and MetaTrader 5 Android. Stay tuned for update releases!
