Good article - it was already promoted but I think the article is very very interesting so I can promote it here once again sorry.

How to trade on an external cryptocurrency exchange via MetaTrader 5   


Who might benefit from the article:

  • cryptocurrency exchange traders;
  • investors familiar with MetaTrader 5 and portfolio investments;
  • freelance programmers who can now execute the customers' orders related to cryptocurrency trading in a simpler (and cheaper) way;
  • everyone who follows the new MetaTrader 5 and MQL5 language features. 

First, we need to choose a cryptocurrency exchange providing a web API.

Leading MetaTrader 5 brokers launch cryptocurrency trading

MetaQuotes Software Corp., 2017.10.13 10:37

Bitcoin trading gains popularity, and the impressive volatility of cryptocurrencies attracts more and more traders. To satisfy this trend, MetaTrader 5 brokers started to offer cryptocurrency trading to their clients. Last month, several leading market players have launched Bitcoin, Dashcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple trading through the MetaTrader 5 platform.

The rapidly growing and highly volatile cryptocurrency market is seen as a promising alternative to traditional trading instruments. Over the past 9 months, Bitcoin price has risen more than three times. The dynamics of Ethereum is even more impressive, which started with 8 USD at the beginning of the year and has reached the current price of 298 USD. Naturally, such dramatic price changes attract both Forex professionals and beginners.

"Cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology may be the future of payments, but MetaTrader 5 is already the future of trading platforms," says Jens Chrzanowski, Management Board Member of Admiral Markets. "The platform provides extensive features and is future-proofed for the coming years. Last, but not least, our Supreme Edition add-on package is also available for our new MetaTrader 5, boosting the platform with over 60 dynamic trading tools."

"Now, trading cryptocurrencies means keeping pace with the times. This opportunity has become available in MetaTrader 5, which is one of the most advanced and highly technological multi-asset trading platforms," comments Kirill Kirichenka, the Product Manager. "Cryptocurrency trading is now available to our clients 24 hours a day, 5 days a week. It is the only asset that is traded without breaks and holidays, and passionate traders will definitely enjoy the possibility to trade on Saturdays and Sundays. The hype around cryptocurrencies is extremely high, because now it is the most volatile market, which gives traders a chance to earn high profits. Is it another dot-com inflated bubble or a new reality? The answer will become clear later, as soon as the cryptocurrency market is completely formed. In the meantime, the market is shaping up. However, no matter how the situation develops in the future, it is clear that the priceless technologies brought by cryptocurrencies will stay with us."

Alexander Kapustin, the head of Marketing in the BCS Forex Operations department, also commented the launch of new symbols, "The launch of Bitcoin trading on BCS Forex MetaTrader 5 accounts is more than just a desire to follow the trend. It is first of all the reaction to an overwhelming number of customer requests. Our specialists have chosen the most balanced and profitable conditions for BTCUSD and BTCEUR trading. Cryptocurrencies are new trading instruments, and now their movements can hardly be subject to technical and fundamental analysis. BCS Forex provides clients everything they need to successfully trade Bitcoin, while urging them to carefully follow proper risk management rules when trading cryptocurrencies."

"We're extremely pleased to now be giving traders access to Bitcoin, Ethereum, Lite Coin, Dash Coin and Bitcoin Cash with flexible trading conditions," adds Angus Walker, IC Markets Director. "The Cryptocurrency market is unlike any other offered by IC Markets. Completely unregulated, incredibly volatile and driven primarily by the fear and greed of retail speculators. Over 2017 we have seen the market cap of many cryptos soar to record highs, and at the same time we've seen governments and regulators across the world beginning to embrace this digital currency. With this in mind it was an easy decision to add the largest and most popular cryptocurrencies to our growing multi-asset offering."

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:

Two types of accounts are available in the trading platform: demonstration (demo) and real. Demo accounts provide the opportunity to work in a training mode without real money, allowing to test a trading strategy. They feature all the same functionality as the live ones. The difference is that demo accounts can be opened without any investment...

Also you must be aware that there are two types of Bitcoin futures existing and some brokers offer CFD not of the actual cryptocurrencies, but over the futures or even something completely made up like a weekly contract. And definitely not all brokers offer crypto trading 7 days per week, which is the actual trading time of those markets. About the huge spreads and commissions and rip-off swaps you probably know already.

Hello everyone. I still don't believe that bitcoin keep on raising up. I hope one day I could get it too. Now it's really too expensive.

I am doing the project about bitcoin now. Wanted to find some science templates to make my presentation much cooler, finally got one. You can also check <Deleted>

Have a nice trading! I wish to earn a lot of billions!
