It provides traders with invaluable context that may have some effect on the markets. The only limitation is the scope of the news provided. I believe, traders could benefit from having access to a more flexible news feed that allows the ability to not only choose the kind of news but also its source.

On the other hand, features being provided by structures are more than enough to resolve such tasks.
The strategy (described on the article) is based on the following book -

The MetaTrader 5 platform update will be released on January 12, 2018.
MetaTrader 5 build 1745 will be the last platform version supporting Microsoft Windows XP/2003/VistaA few months ago, we announced end of support for older versions of operating systems.
Windows 2003, Windows Vista and especially Microsoft Windows XP are
outdated operating systems. Microsoft ended support for Windows XP three
years ago, because potential hardware capabilities could no longer be
realized on this system due to technical limitations.
5 build 1745 and older versions will continue to work on the above
operating systems, but will no longer receive updates. Platform
installers will not run on these operating systems.The minimum
required operating system version for running MetaTrader 5 is Windows 7.

New MetaTrader 5 Platform Build 1755
MetaQuotes Software Corp., 2018.01.18 11:08
We recommend anyone who has long been using 32-bit Wine for
MetaTrader 5 due to the past incompatibility with the 64-bit terminal to
upgrade Wine to the latest 64-bit version and re-install MetaTrader 5
in 64 bits.
Besides, make sure to set the Wine compatibility mode to at least
Windows 7 instead of the default Windows XP. No more updates for Windows
XP/2003/Vista will be released.
