More technical analysis tools added in the MetaTrader 4 Web platform

The latest version of the MetaTrader 4 Web platform features new tools for technical analysis. Recently, we announced the upcoming implementation of the MACD oscillator in order to demonstrate the indicator operation on a separate window. Eventually, we have decided to speed up and add a few different indicators in test mode:

  • Envelopes oscillator using two Moving Averages to form an envelope on a chart
  • Popular Bollinger Bands trend following indicator consisting of three Moving Averages and assessing the market volatility
  • Momentum indicator showing price change rate
  • Moving Average Convergence/Divergence (MACD)

More technical analysis tools added in the MetaTrader 4 Web platform


You can configure the indicators by setting the necessary analytical parameters, including calculation period and shift relative to a price chart. Visual settings such as line color, width, and type, are to be added soon. The remaining indicators will appear in the Web platform after thorough testing. The future Web platform versions will also feature the ability to apply indicators to each other.

Stay tuned for more news!

MetaTrader 5 features the powerful arsenal of modern tools for trading in the financial markets — technical and fundamental analysis, development and launch of trading robots, testing trading strategies, and creating custom technical indicators and scripts. Now, they are available to Otkritie Broker traders working with Russian stocks on the Moscow Exchange. MOEX FX Market traders started using MetaTrader 5 a year earlier (November 2014). Thus, MetaTrader 5 now allows trading in the Securities, Derivatives and FX markets of the Moscow Exchange.

"The MetaTrader 5 trading platform enjoys well-deserved recognition among professional traders providing ample opportunities when working with charts and programming. Until recently, the platform functionality was unavailable for users performing trading operations on MOEX Equity and Bond Market. Now, this gap is eliminated, and we are glad to offer the MetaTrader 5 platform to Otkritie Broker clients, so that they are able to trade Russian stocks. 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. I am sure, traders will appreciate the rich functionality of our platform for trading securities as well", — adds Gaies Chreis, COO of MetaQuotes Software.

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.
