Hello,

We are in October 2017.

If I want to develop from zero new EAs, what platform to choose between MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5, so which language to choose MQL4 or MQL5?

Please detail your choice.

My opinion :

In the past I did not ask myself, because the choice of brokers offering MetaTrader 5 platform was very limited.

Today it seems less and less true.

Hence my hesitation.

Apart from the greater choice of brokers offering the MetaTrader 4 Platform as the MetaTrader 5 Platform (which should continue to decline over time), is there another reason to choose MQL4 instead of MQL5?

The idea would be to develop in MQL5, and if I really want to open an account at a broker with only offer MetaTrader 4, make my MQL5 code to MQL4 compatible.
