Using cloud storage services for data exchange between terminals
Cloud technologies are becoming more popular in the modern world. We are able to use paid or free storage services of various sizes. But is it possible to use them in practical trading? This article proposes a technology for exchanging data between terminals using cloud storage services.
You may ask, why we need a cloud storage for this when we already have solutions for a direct connection between terminals. But I think, this approach has a number of advantages. First, a provider remains anonymous: users get access to a cloud server instead of the provider's PC. Thus, the provider's computer is protected from virus attacks, and it does not have to be permanently connected to the internet. It should connect only to send messages to the server. Second, a cloud may contain virtually unlimited number of providers. And third, as their number of users increases, providers do not have to improve their computing capacities.
Let's use the free cloud storage of 15 GB provided by Google as an example. This is more than enough for our objectives.

MQL5.COMMUNITY PAYMENT SYSTEM
Internal payment system was initially created in MQL5.community for payment of fees to authors of Articles. But the community's life does not stay still, and plenty of services, useful for traders and implying commodity-money relations between two parties, has emerged on the web-site since the launch of the payment system:
The most popular payment systems WebMoney and PayPal are integrated for deposit and withdrawal. U.S. dollars are used as the currency unit. Eventually we implemented other ways of depositing to MQL5.community account: these are common plastic cards (CommerceGate), handy and rapid system not requiring additional confirmation (Neteller), and a solution oriented towards users from China (Netbanx).

MetaQuotes sponsors the sMart-lab.ru Exchange Conference for traders and investors
MetaQuotes Software Corp., 2017.10.04 12:23
On September 30, the Smart-lab.ru portal hosted the 24th conference of investors held with the support of Moscow Exchange (MOEX). The developer of the MetaTrader 5 multiasset platform MetaQuotes Software Corp. sponsored the event.
The main mission of the conference was to educate and inform participants about the Russian Financial Community. This year, the event was attended by more than 300 stock market professionals. Exchange investors and traders shared their experience with the event attendees.
The key topics of the conference were the fundamentals of algorithmic Russian stock trading, actual trends in the financial market, investment
timing, robo-advisors and the global oil industry. Particular attention was given to the market of crypto-currencies and the appropriate market
regulation questions. The following speakers presented further on the topic in a crypto-currency related session of the conference:

MQL5 Cookbook: Developing a Multi-Currency Expert Advisor with Unlimited Number of Parameters
The multi-currency Expert Advisor considered in the previous article "MQL5 Cookbook: Multi-Currency Expert Advisor - Simple, Neat and Quick Approach",
can be very useful if the number of symbols and trading strategy
parameters used is small. However, there is a restriction on the number
of input parameters of an Expert Advisor in MQL5: they should be no more
And even though this number will very often be sufficient, it is very
inconvenient to use such a huge list of parameters. Every time a change
or optimization of parameters for a given symbol is required, you have
to search parameters for that specific symbol in the long parameter
In this article, we will create a pattern that uses a single set of
parameters for optimization of a trading system, while allowing for
unlimited number of parameters. The list of symbols will be created in a
standard text file (*.txt). Input parameters for each symbol will also be stored in files.
It needs to be mentioned here that the Expert Advisor will work on
one symbol in the normal operation mode but you will be able to test it
in the Strategy Tester on a variety of selected symbols (on each symbol
It would, in fact, be even more convenient to create the symbol list directly in the Market Watch
window, considering that it even allows for saving ready made symbol
sets. We could even make the Expert Advisor to get the symbol list in
the Market Watch window directly from the Strategy Tester. But
unfortunately, it is currently not possible to access the Market Watch
window from the Strategy Tester, so we will have to create the symbol
list manually in advance or using a script.

New design of Freelance!
Renat Fatkhullin, 2017.10.05 13:17
Freelance has not been completed yet.
We began to roll out the changes in steps, as it is dangerous to wait a long time and make a big upgrade once.
Renat Fatkhullin, 2017.10.05 13:33
Style must be combed through.
Now the main work is going on the reworking of ideology and the form of submission of data.
Renat Fatkhullin, 2017.10.05 13:42
We have already implemented a new global georeferenced system of the messenger to be instead of the current one. Soon we will roll out.
There all this will be: the exchange of files, screenshots, sound, etc.
More to follow: there will be new MetaEditor with new group-work and with projects.
I'm really confused when i create a new order its nowhere near the actual market price its always about 5 pips away, when i click buy surely it should be right at the market price, so I'm guessing I'm doing something wrong?
Are you talking about spread?For forex pairs as 5 pips in 5 digit price? (50 points)?Spread related to the brokers so if you do not like the spread in 50 points - change the broker.
In this examle (MT5, MetaQuotes-Demo server) the spread for EURUSD = 5 (not 50 as in your case):
For example - right mouse click on any symbol in Market Watch - Specification - to see the spread.This is the spread for EURUSD on the other broker -
