I am trying to develop software for traders to see real-time trades they do using metatrader.

Idea is to login to my app, which is directed to metadata server and get latest information of my trades and histories.

As I am completely new to the trading domain and metatrader, can anyone explain the steps to follow?

I have been going through mtapi documentations.

I am developing a software which would act as middleware and connect to metatrader server and get necessary informations.

The documentation on this website is actually for the metatrader pc platform .

The steps would be the user linking your app (your server) to their metatrader 4 or metatrader 5 ,from an application for metatrader 4 or metatrader 5 you develop and they are constantly running in their platform or a private server.

You can play around with the platform application side as its the smallest bit you will need ,so if you already have an app/website you can complete your project really fast . If not , download IFTT (if this then that) on your mobile phone and play around with the webhooks function (for sending various data from the mt account)

Hi, 

Thanks for the reply.

Is there any Webservice API or REST API exposed by trading platforms like Metatrader 4 or 5?. I see many brokers like oanda, Etrade are providing REST API for appliction development.

Metatrader website says, there are APIs available to integrate with external system (like mine), but documentation is not enough and no place to find and download the APIs. Can you guide on this?

The api is for brokers ,you can build apps in the platform and with user consent link them to your app.

if you have your - app / website / server - then you can open a request here : https://www.mql5.com/en/job ,and the coders will make you offers .
But you have to be specific ,what type of data you want sent in the app ,and most importantly is your app needed by the user ?
