Darwinex offers MetaTrader 5 traders a new investment model

In March 2018, the British broker added MetaTrader 5 to its platform offering, and later in May launched DJIA stocks trading via this platform. Having noticed a growing interest in this new offer from traders, Darwinex decided to launch the "hedge-fund as a service" model from MetaTrader 4 to MetaTrader 5.

Under this innovative model, traders perform trading operations on their brokerage account as normal while Darwinex quotes their strategy into the DARWIN investable asset. The risk is standardized and managed by Darwinex itself. A separate risk management layer protects the investor and enables an apple-to-apple comparison across trading strategies.

Mr Juan Colón, Darwinex

Mr Juan Colón, Darwinex

Mr Juan Colón, CEO of Darwinex, said, "Since adding the MetaTrader 5 platform to our brokerage offering, we have seen considerable interest from traders around the world. Extending our 'hedge fund as a service' model to additional platforms and asset classes was the logical step forward. The launch of new services for MetaTrader 5 traders is in line with our policy towards achieving the status of the leading innovative broker."

Complete history of synthetic symbols in MetaTrader 5 build 1880

We have added calculation for the price history of synthetic symbols for the entire available data depth. Previously, the history was only calculated for the last two months. A deeper history could be created only upon an explicit request (when scrolling the chart to the left or calling Copy functions).

How it works

Each symbol used in the formula can have a price history of different depth. Therefore, the calculation is performed for the shortest available period. For example, the formula uses three financial instruments:

  • EURUSD with the history down to January 1, 2009
  • USDJPY with the history down to June 1, 2012
  • EURJPY with the history down to June 1, 2014

In this case, the history of the synthetic symbol will be calculated for a period from June 1, 2014 to the present. 100 minutes will be additionally discarded from this date, to ensure calculation integrity. If any minute bar is not available in history, a previous minute bar is used in the calculation.

Complete history of synthetic symbols in MetaTrader 5 build 1880

The U.S. Dollar Index equation is used in the example above:

USDX = 50.14348112*pow(ask(EURUSD),-0.576)*pow(USDJPY,0.136)*pow(ask(GBPUSD),-0.119)*pow(USDCAD,0.091)*pow(USDSEK,0.042)*pow(USDCHF,0.036)

If the history is deep, the calculation can take quite a long time. The history for the last two months is calculated first, in order to view the chart immediately. An earlier history is generated afterwards.

See the full list of changes implemented in MetaTrader 5 build 1880 for more information on the new version of the trading platform.

B2Broker Investment Platform for MetaTrader 5 is now available in the broker App Store

The new platform is available as an automated investment service that can help brokerages increase their earnings. The platform allows businesses to launch an investment product in just a week and start attracting new clients. You can order the application in the MetaTrader 5 App Store — the store of ready-made broker software.

Artur Azizov, CEO of B2Broker

Mr. Artur Azizov, CEO of B2Broker

B2Broker's investment platform offers 3 account types:

  1. PAMM. In this model, all investment accounts are combined into one big pool. A money manager trades in one big account and all investors receive profits and losses in proportion to their investments. This model is suitable for HFT traders, investment funds and professional traders
  2. Social Trading. Investors copy deals of a selected money manager to their own accounts and can close them at their will. Also, investors can perform their own trading operations on such accounts. Social trading is the best way forward for amateurs and beginners, in learning how to trade, based on the experience of professional traders.
  3. MAM. It is the most popular account type in countries with strict regulation. This product is suitable for professional money managers who wish to have flexibility in managing investors' accounts. MAM is a copier based solution: investors' accounts are not combined into one big trading account but are maintained as stand-alone elements. Investors are not able to trade on investment accounts as they operate in the read-only mode.

3 in 1 investment platform

The integrator emphasizes, that the B2Broker 3 in 1 system runs via API — all copying operations are performed on the application side and do not load the MetaTrader 5 trade server. High execution speeds allow copying of 5,000 orders in less than a second. Being a service provider, B2Broker does not have access to sensitive data, since the system is hosted on the client's side.

Mr. Artur Azizov, CEO of B2Broker, commented, "When many providers offer similar products, it can be very hard to differentiate. The launch of our PAMM/MAM service can help brokerage companies make their offer outstanding, both for money managers and investors. In just one week, any MetaTrader 5 broker can launch our investment platform, which includes web-interfaces with a widget and a leader board of money managers. The price includes a one-time setup fee of $2,000, along with a monthly charge starting at $2,000/month, having a cap at $7,000/month."

Five important MetaTrader 5 build 1860 features for algorithmic traders

Why you need to upgrade MetaTrader 5 right now, if you are using MQL5 and create trading robots:

  1. In response to popular demand from traders, we have added the following functions for operations with timeseries: iTime, iOpen, iHigh, iLow, iClose, iVolume, iBars, iBarShift, iLowest, iHighest, iRealVolume, iTickVolume and iSpread. Now, developers can easily transfer their MetaTrader 4 applications code to the fifth generation platform, since these functions have been migrated from MQL4. Detailed descriptions and function codes are available in the MetaTrader 5 build 1860 announcement.

  2. MQL5 applications can run faster due to the additional source code optimization during compilation. Recompile your programs with the new MetaEditor version to improve their performance.

  3. We have completely updated the optimization cache operation in the Strategy Tester. In earlier versions, optimization cache was stored as one XML file. All Expert Advisor optimization passes, with specified testing settings, were recorded to this file. Therefore, the same file stored optimization results with different input parameters. Now, the optimization cache is stored as separate binary files, for each set of optimized parameters. Strategy Tester operations, involving the optimization cache, have become significantly faster due to the new format and smaller file size. This can be significantly noticeable when you resume a paused optimization pass.

    Viewing results of previous optimizations.
    The results of previously performed optimizations can be viewed right in the Strategy Tester, so there is no need to analyze large XML files using third-party software. Open the "Optimization results" tab, select an Expert Advisor and a file with the desired optimization cache. The list contains all Expert Advisor optimization cache files available on the disk. Optimization date, testing settings (symbol, timeframe and interval) and input parameters are shown for each file. You can additionally filter optimization results by the trade server.


    Optimization results in Strategy Tester

    Recalculation of optimization criteria 'on the fly'
    The optimization criterion is a certain variable parameter, the value of which determines the quality of a tested set of inputs. The higher the value of the optimization criterion, the better the testing pass is considered to be.

    Previously, only one criterion selected before optimization start was calculated during optimization as such. You can now change the optimization criterion 'on the fly' from the results view mode — all values will be automatically recalculated in the Strategy Tester.
  4. The new version allows manual setting of the deposit currency and leverage to be used during testing and optimization. In earlier versions, these parameters were set in accordance with the connected account, so they could only be changed by switching to other accounts.


    Manual setting of the deposit currency and leverage

  5. The use of OpenCL is now allowed in testing agents. Previously, OpenCL devices were only allowed when testing on local agents. In the updated version, agents are allowed to use all available OpenCL devices (such as processors and video cards), both in the local network and in the MQL5 Cloud Network.

New account opening dialog in MetaTrader 5: useful for traders and regulated brokers

The latest platform version features a revised start dialog: traders can select a broker first, and then choose the desired account type. To make the search easier and more efficient, company logos are additionally shown in the list. If you can't view the desired company, please type its name or server address in the search box.

New account opening dialog in MetaTrader 5

We have added account descriptions in the dialog to help beginners choose the right account type. Now, traders can clearly see the difference between real trading accounts and risk-free demo accounts. To help brokers align with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the updated account opening dialog contains links to the relevant agreements and data protection policies.

The latest platform version features a revised start dialog:

The real account acquisition procedure has become easier — MiFID and MiFID II regulated brokers can request the required information straight through the platform. In earlier platform versions, traders could upload documents through mobile terminals. Now, this functionality is also available in the desktop platforms.

"We believe that MetaTrader 5 will dovetail with the existing core competencies within the company allowing a true powerhouse to emerge."

Admiral Markets adds 4,000 new stocks for MetaTrader 5 accounts

The international broker has announced the biggest instruments expansion they have ever made. Admiral Markets clients holding MetaTrader 5 accounts are given access to over 4,000 stocks and 100 ETFs. Together with the previously available instruments, this offering has become one of the largest among all online trading venues.

The new Admiral Markets offering for investors provides stocks and exchange-traded funds from the following exchanges:

  1. Austria (VIE)
  2. Belgium (Euronext)
  3. Denmark (CSE)
  4. Finland (NASDAQ)
  5. France (Euronext)
  6. Germany (Xetra)
  7. Netherlands (Euronext)

  10. Spain (BME)

  12. Switzerland (SWX)
  13. UK (LSE)
  14. US (AMEX, NASDAQ and NYSE)

Jens Chrzanowski, Admiral Markets Group AS

Jens Chrzanowski, Admiral Markets Group AS

— We are delighted to make these classic investment opportunities available at Admiral Markets. — says Mr Jens Chrzanowski, Member of the Management Board of Admiral Markets Group AS. — Traders might not always want to trade short-term, which is quite usual for any leveraged product; sometimes you might prefer to invest for a longer period of time. In this case, the 'classic' equities, such as stocks are more relevant. Also, let's not forget about ETFs, which are quite popular in the past years and now also available on MetaTrader 5. ETFs or exchange-traded funds are 'passively managed', without a high management fee. Unlike mutual funds, an ETF trades like a common stock on an exchange. Moreover, ETFs typically have a higher daily liquidity, which makes them an attractive alternative for investors.

— We have taken a great leap forward in terms of promotion of the world's most advanced trading platform — MetaTrader 5, among the trading community and classic investors, — sums up Mr Chrzanowski. — While the former get access to investment opportunities, the latter obtain an incredibly powerful trading tool. Without the capabilities of MetaTrader 5, which is as different from MetaTrader 4 as the modern electric car is from the good old diesel, it would not be possible to provide such a diverse offering."

The broker encourages all clients with MetaTrader 4 accounts to learn more about MetaTrader 5 and consider switching to Admiral.MT5 and/or Admiral.Invest accounts, as MetaTrader 4 has reached its technical limits with the current offering.

African Broker Precise FX switches to MetaTrader 5

Traders of Ghana and other West African countries are now able to trade using the innovative platform developed by MetaQuotes. One of the largest Ghanaian brokers, Precise FX, is the first in the region to switch to MetaTrader 5, offering its customers the full package of services. The African traders have not only received the desktop platform supporting hedging, but also received the mobile platform versions, for iOS and Android, alongside copy trading with signal subscription and access to ready-made robots for algorithmic trading. Currencies, commodities, stocks, metals and energy — hundreds of financial instruments are now available on a single platform.

Matilda Danquah, Head of Marketing and Strategy at Precise FX

Matilda Danquah, Precise FX

"Opting for the MetaTrader 5 platform was mainly focused in enhancing the trading experience of all clients who trade on the Precise FX platform", says Ms Matilda Danquah, Head of Marketing and Strategy at Precise FX. "The Clients are able to transfer funds between trading accounts right on the trading platform and can access the built-in economic calendar along with numerous tools for technical and fundamental analysis. We believe that equipping clients with the right trading support is a key requirement in making their trading experience successful. Although MetaTrader 5 is an upgraded version of MetaTrader 4, the user interface is very similar and users will easily familiarize themselves with the new platform. The replacement of MetaTrader 4 with MetaTrader 5 platform is a strategic move that will enable the company to remain as the preferred broker across the West African region".

Michael Lamptey, the independent columnist of Modern Ghana

Michael Lamptey, Modern Ghana

"Online forex trading has been one of the most fulfilling investment ventures I have been involved in", says Mr Michael Lamptey, the independent columnist of Modern Ghana website commenting on MetaTrader 5 perspectives in the region. "In our part of the world (West Africa), getting online now has become very easy, with the invasion of smartphones and internet. MetaTrader 5 is entering the West African market at the right time. The number of mobile users is growing and the product is bound to find its audience. A trader's level of experience is not important — those having no time to go through the different forms of analysis can also trade automatically with the use of robots and trading signals. So why just download social media platform on your phone, when you can trade and earn money using the MetaTrader 5 mobile platform?

MetaTrader 5 Marketplace is expanding — the number of integrators has doubled

The growing brokers' demand for MetaTrader 5 fuels the interest of vendors. The trend is evident — 3 months after launching the Marketplace, the number of its participants has doubled. Among the most notable integrators who joined the project are Dynamic Works, Fortex Inc, Brokeree Solutions and B2Broker.

— The marketplace significantly facilitates the business of a broker who receives not only the trading platform, but also quick access to a plethora of related solutions in a single place, — says Elina Bagautdinova, CCO of Brokeree Solutions. — We believe that this service will soon become the main outlet for companies in the industry due to its simplicity and transparency. For Brokeree Solutions, which specializes directly in software development and integration with MetaTrader 5, such a store allows focusing on the main thing — development of product series. Brokers already use a number of products from Brokeree Solutions: for example, Web API or Extended Agent Commissions — a plug-in for a complex agents reward system. We do our best to thoroughly cover the needs of our clients and develop new applications according to their requirements, therefore our MetaTrader 5-related series will definitely grow — four new products are ready to be released in May.

— We have been working with platforms from MetaQuotes from the very beginning and are now delighted to be a part of the MetaTrader 5 marketplace launch, — states Natallia Hunik, Global Head of Sales at Fortex Inc. commenting on the company's participation in the project. — As brokers are increasingly looking for a competitive edge through robust technology solutions to access interbank liquidity, Fortex welcomes this innovation from MetaQuotes to meet the growing demand. This demonstrates the openness we need to develop as an industry as with the MetaTrader 5 marketplace consumers will enjoy more choice and transparency than ever. MetaQuotes Software scale and expertise make the marketplace an excellent springboard to bring the right solutions to the brokers.

— We are really excited to have Syntellicore CRM & Traders Room approved on the MetaTrader 5 third-party solutions market, — adds Angelos Gregoriou, CEO of Dynamic Works. — Syntellicore Backoffice and Traders Room are both fully integrated with the new platform as an out of the box functionality. The MetaTrader 5 marketplace is a great initiative by MetaQuotes that makes solid products and reliable vendors to stand out, while helping brokers in making the right decision for their organization.

— The new B2B platform from MetaQuotes makes a significant contribution to the development of the MetaTrader 5 trading system market, — says Artur Azizov, CEO of B2Broker. — We have something to offer to every broker, as B2Broker has been implementing MetaTrader platforms since 2014 and is thus able to compete with the industry’s leading players. We already provide our customers with White Label solutions on the MetaTrader 5 platform and can provide migration from MetaTrader 4 to the new platform.
