How do I add a stock symbol to MT5?

metatradinator  

I am subscribed to Just2Trade-MT5 on a MT5 Demo account. How do I get marketwatch to show tickers instead of forex? How do I get the strategy tester to use stock ticker symbols instead of forex pairs?


Thank you.

If you did not find the symbol you want to trade (or the broker does not allow to trade some symbol) so you can find the other broker (because the symbols are related to the brokers).
