I think - it may be enough proof related to MT5 for example.

Hello Sergey,

Thank you for all your links and informations.
There is definitively many good reasons to shift from
MT4 to MT5, but it seems majority of users are not yet ready to do so
and many brokers as well are not offering the right support for MT5 for the moment.
On a technical part yes, MT5 is definitively better than MT4.

As a programmer I find it really sad that people still prefer the old Metatrader 4 over Metatrader 5 because MQL5 has so much more to offer in terms of speed and overall functionality.
I agree with you that this is probably due to the fact that most of the brokers don't support the new platform, maybe partly because of the increased complexity it brings with it.

Thus, it is needless to say that I will have to adapt my products to MQL4 as well, otherwise I won't be able to target the larger group of customers.

Hi Christian,

I totally agree. 

On a total technical point of view MT5 is over MT4 and bring much more opportunities in term of product development, data access, tick, depth and so on.
But on a "business" point of view, the vast majority of end users are still using mt4 and broker as well, meaning until this users/traders adopt mt5 we still
need to develop and propose solution on MT4. One good solution would be to be able to convert easily old MT4 indicator and strategies to MT5 and people
would still continue to have their habits. But seems to not be the case.

Ask yourself the good questions :

most brokers don't support MT5 just because end-users do not want it, and do not ask for it.

If 8 years after the release of a product, the product is not wanted by users, this is a good hint that there is something deeply wrong with it.


Ok MT5 has faster execution and extended functions, but the extended complexity of the langage is ejecting 90% of potential coders
