The current version of the trading platform is most popular all over the world thanks to its user-friendly interface, a variety of technical analysis tools and the integrated MQL4 language for developing indicators and trading robots.

The new platform allows you to trade not only Forex symbols but also exchange instruments Time & Sales with real volumes and order levels, as well as manual trading inside the Depth of Market and developing scalper strategies based on the order book and liquidity are available for you. For fundamental traders, the platform features the Economic Calendar with a detailed description of each indicator, while the event schedule is displayed directly on a chart. The Calendar functions allow you to track and analyze changes of the necessary macroeconomic indicator directly from MQL5 programs.
The MQL5 execution speed is comparable to that of С++ applications, while MQL5 programs work up to 20 times faster than MQL4 ones. This is proved by the execution time of standard tests on MQL4, MQL5 and C++. The lower the bar, the less time spent on execution and the better the result. The tests have been conducted on Windows 10 (build 17763) x64, Xeon E5-2630 v4 @ 2.20GHz, Memory: 65457 Mb.
If we also keep in mind asynchronous operations having an execution time less than a millisecond, we can safely state that MQL5 provides algorithmic trading features that were previously available only to a handful of professional traders. With the fifth generation platform, you do not need third-party connections to exchange protocols. Besides, you do not need to place your terminals as close to a broker as possible. Just get a VPS next to the trading server and send your fast MQL5 robot to trade there directly from the terminal. Low network costs, high Depth of Market refresh rates and asynchronous order sending accelerate trading operations dozens of times, which is a key factor in the algorithmic trading.
