By the end of the last year, Borsa Istanbul's VIOP section had reached a
record high with 3
billion Turkish liras of daily trading value. There is a
total of 280 BIST members. With MetaTrader 5, any of them can offer a
new level of trading to its customers.
MetaTrader 5 is an
advanced ecosystem featuring numerous useful services - from automated copying
of deals to buying ready-made trading robots in the Market. All these
innovations are now available to Borsa Istanbul traders as well. To start
working at the exchange, they only need to download MetaTrader 5 and select a
broker who has already purchased MetaTrader 5 Gateway to Borsa Istanbul.

The stocks are traded in the different market under BIST.
I think that this announcement is only about the VIOP, not about the stock market.
