We are glad to announce that MQL4 language has been included into TIOBE Programming Community Index for December 2014. This is a monthly indicator of the popularity of programming languages prepared by the Netherlands-based company TIOBE Software BV since 2001.
This is an important event for the automated trading, as entering the reputable and independent TIOBE rating proves that the MQL4
language for developing trading strategies is popular among developers
from around the world. Entering the Index is not an easy task, since the
candidates need to meet the following criteria:
Besides, TIOBE rating also takes into account the number of
language specialists, existing courses, third-party vendors supporting
the language and the amount of code indexed by search engines. The
