The development of MetaTrader 5
started in 2007. MetaTrader 5 was conceived as a revolutionary,
multi-market platform that can run on Forex as well as on any other
financial market. A lot of work has been done since then, and the result
of this work is the platform that provides unlimited opportunities to
traders. In this article, we will talk about all the key features of
MetaTrader 5 and carry out a comparative analysis with the previous
version of the trading platform.

Find a Server by the Broker's Name
Another convenient new feature of MetaTrader 5 is adding brokers' servers by their names.
With the previous version, you had to contact your broker to find out
the IP address of the trade server or download a special client
terminal. Now, you simply enter the name of the broker. The system
automatically finds the server with the specified name and adds it to

170 global brokers from Australia to Brazil offer MetaTrader 5
MetaQuotes Software Corp., 2017.09.05 14:01
The migration of brokers to MetaTrader 5 is ongoing — JFD Brokers,
Alfa-Forex, FreshForex, IGM Forex and USGFX have recently announced the
launch of the platform with support for hedge accounts. The Irish broker
Squared Financial Services, Terra Investimentos from Brazil, Iraq-based
Durian, as well as SDT Brokerage are also among the companies that
started offering the multi-asset HFT platform to their traders in the summer of 2017.
The number of brokers switching to MetaTrader 5 grows weekly — over 170 industry participants currently offer the flagship platform to their clients. This dynamic is also due to active growth of the B2B market
around MetaTrader 5 — more and more integrators become interested in developing institutional solutions for the new platform satisfying brokers' needs.
"I`ve been using MetaQuotes trading platforms since the early start of my FX career", says Wasim Zayed, Deputy General Manager at IGM Forex Ltd. "It has always gained my trust as an ultimate trading platform a reputable broker can offer to the traders. The rapid evolution of the
forex business and the changes in the regulatory environment, all have been adopted and integrated in the MetaTrader 5 platform. This has
become a substantial argument for us in favor of its launch. At the first phase, our clients will experience the basic MetaTrader 5
environment with hedging capability, at the second phase, they will be able to experience the market depth (Level II) trading environment with
deep market liquidity, and at the third phase, our clients will be able to experience trading directly with the exchange".
“We chose to launch the MetaTrader 5 because its infrastructure is optimized to suit the needs of a fast-growing broker like JFD", states
Mihail Kamburov, COO at JFD Brokers. "This advanced terminal adds extra flexibility while at the same time maintaining system security. We wanted to follow the next step of technology evolution in order to stay on top of innovations in our industry. MetaTrader 5 already comes with new, improved features such as an economic calendar, more order types and a wide range of time frames. To give traders that additional edge, we have created an exclusive version of the trading platform with a unique set of Add-Ons that features a lot of handy tools designed to further improve their trading.”
"MetaTrader 5 is a versatile platform equipped with all the necessary tools for successful trading in financial markets with the familiar
MetaTrader 4-style interface", points out Alexander Goryachev, leading analyst at FreshForex. "The extended set of timeframes and technical analysis tools allow
traders to conduct a detailed market analysis and detect price movements in time. Our clients have been looking forward to the MetaTrader 5
launch to evaluate the expanded and improved functionality of the next generation platform, and we are happy to offer them this opportunity!"

Do you sell something on the Market? Are you signal provider? So, just some links about promotion:
Sergey Golubev, 2017.01.09 06:40
Good thread was started in Russian part of the forum about a year ago: How to sell your products, services and signals
(in Russian language). This thread is about to share the experiance
concerning how to sell/promote your signals/market products/freelance
services in internet and everywhere (I mean: this is HowTo thread).
Sergey Golubev, 2017.01.09 06:37
And just want to remind that the promotion of signals and market products is prohibited on the forum sorry.
One way to promote your signal is to create any external blog and place a widget there:
MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 Trading Signals Widgets
This is the my personal example with my google blog:
Sergey Golubev, 2013.06.23 11:51
I installed widget (Top Signals) for my google blog in easy way using this link for example so everybody can do it (widget for some particular signal or signals, or widget for some broker). I did not place it on some other websites because I am not a signal provider and I am not market vendor. But I think that google blogs' promotion as a widget (together with simple promotion using facebook, twitter and google+) are fully enough to get some subscribers/clients.
But if some signal provider (or Market vendor) wants to get many subscribers/clients so it may be necessary to go to more quick way - go to the other Metatrader forums to promote your signal or product in direct way - just my experience.
Some changes in MetaEditor (for MT4 and MT5):
