As many people are asking about "How to open account with MT5" and "How to add the broker to MT5" so I want to remind the following links:

How to update MT4 to the latest build -

----------------

1. Connect MT4 to MetaQuotes-Demo server (open demo account with MetaQuotes-Demo:


2. Look at the status bar:

Status Bar
For additional information to be visualized, the status bar is used in the terminal. The status bar contains indicator of the server connection, amount of incoming and outgoing traffic, names of active template and profile, as well as command prompts and price data.

Connection status colors.

This is the server connection marker. Upper part of the marker is for the direct connection to the server. The lower part shows that you are connected through a Data Center.

If it is fully red, it means there is no connection with the selected server.
If it is green/red, this means the direct connection to the server.
If it is green/blue, this means that you use a Data Center.

If this marker is spotty in color, this means that the connection is not very good (this may cause that one quote reaches you, but another one does not).

and we can see how the update is downloaded ( we can see it by incoming traffic on the status bar).

3. If update is not started so - re-start Metatrader 4.
In my case - I restarted MT4 for 2 or 3 times, and MT4 update was started after that.

From MetaTrader 5 platform beta build 2155: MQL5 scope, global Strategy Tester and built-in Virtual Hosting updates


Terminal: Added ability to quickly switch to deposit/withdrawal operations on the broker website.

There is no need to search for appropriate functions in a trader's room on the broker site. Fast navigation commands are available directly in terminals: in the accounts menu in Navigator and in Toolbox > Trade tab:



    • Deposit/withdrawal operations are only available if appropriate functions are enabled for the trading account on the broker side.
    • The trading terminal does not perform any account deposit/withdrawal operations. The integrated functions redirect the user to the appropriate broker website pages.

Building an Expert Advisor using separate modules

Building an Expert Advisor using separate modules

When developing indicators, Expert Advisors and scripts, developers often need to create various pieces of code, which are not directly related to the trading strategy. For example, such code may concern Expert Advisor operation schedule: daily, weekly or monthly. As a result, we will create an independent project, which can interact with the trading logic and other components using a simple interface. With the least effort, such a schedule can be further used in custom developed Expert Advisors and indicators without serious modifications. In this article we will try to apply a system approach to Expert Advisor creation using blocks. We will also consider an interesting possibility, which will emerge as a result of our work. The article is intended for beginners.

Recommend Baby pips and then trading on Demo account until you figure out a system you are comfortable trading. You will know when you got the hang of it once you are comfortable how to play the game, and its not just looking to click the buy or sell button .

All the best,
