The largest store of ready-made trading robots for the MetaTrader platforms features over 11,000 applications. We have upgraded the MetaTrader Market to help you browse through this wide variety of trading programs. The main page now features new Market products, popular Expert Advisors and indicators, as well as top free applications. The new design allows for better navigation experience in the MetaTrader Market, while providing fast access to the most interesting and useful apps.
The Experts, Indicators and Utilities sections have been enhanced with sub-sections, making it easier to find applications suiting your specific trading strategy. Trend or scalping robots, oscillators or cluster indicators, neural networks or martingale systems — the Market features an easy-to-browse selection of applications for traders of any skill level.
Also, a month ago we launched the Coupons service for brokers — using MQL5 Coupons, you can evaluate the Market of trading applications and other services for the MetaTrader platforms for free. Ask for available coupons from your broker, and use them to get closely acquainted with the Market of trading robots.

Everything starts with the Activation in the Market. When you buy a
product you do not actually get the product itself but the right to use
it an unlimited number of times, but on a limited number of computers.
This parameter is set for each paid product individually and it is
disabled for free products.
After one activation you can use the product on a computer without
any restrictions. You will not be able to download the copy of the
product on another computer. If you installed the file manually, you
will not open it either. Number of activations can be found on the page
with a detailed description of the product in the column with its
specifications (described above).

You can read this article (TESTING TRADING STRATEGIES ON REAL TICKS).
-------------------Just an example - MT4 and very old builds of MT5: I optimized the EAs from this thread just to find good settings for the pair, I was backtesting them, and I traded on demo for some time just to be sure that EAs are profitable.With new builds of MT5: I will optimize the EAs from this thread to find the settings, and I will backtesting them with 'every tick based on real ticks' - and it will be same as trading by those EA on real account for many months or years!
MT4 & MT5 backtest
Sergey Golubev, 2017.02.17 20:53
If you are backtesting EA on MT5 using 'every tick based on real ticks' so it will be almost same with trading on MT5 platform with some particular broker (because it is based on actual historical data).
Example, read this thread: Why is it better MT5 than MT4?? Does it have fewer limitations ??? - this is the quote from the first post of the thread:
For more information about it - read this summary.
As i know - some coders/traders are converting their MT4 EAs to MT5 just to backtest them and/or to find the settings with optimization to get the backtesting results that are closest to reality.

Why Virtual Hosting On The MetaTrader 4 And MetaTrader 5 Is Better Than Usual VPS
Renting a virtual server right from the MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5
terminals is the optimal way to ensure uninterrupted work of your
trading robots and Signal
subscriptions. Essentially, it is an analogue of a VPS though it is
better and more suitable for addressing needs and challenges that a
trader comes across. The server can be rented straight from your
MetaTrader. It takes only a couple mouse clicks for Experts Advisors,
indicators, scripts together with Signal subscriptions and settings to
be transferred to the virtual server. The Virtual Hosting Cloud network
was developed specially for MetaTrader and has all the advantages of a native solution.

1. You have to use a different VPS for every subscription.
2. You will be able to see the trades in real time if you open your local MT platform.
3. You have to change your setting in advance and synchronize signal again.
4. (I am using MT integrated VPS and I am happy with it, I can't tell for others).
5. You can renew your subscription from your MQL5.com: Signals >> My Subscriptions (on the left) or through your MT platform, down on the terminal window.
6. You can see everything in real time as it happens.
