Creating a custom news feed for MetaTrader 5 


MetaTrader 5 has many useful features that a trader would need, regardless of their trading style, including a possible access to a live news feed. 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.

Momentum Pinball trading strategy  

The purpose of this article is to demonstrate to the programmers who have already mastered MQL5, one of the variants for realizing Momentum Pinball TS, in which simplified methods of object-oriented programming will be applied. From the full-fledged OOP, the code will differ by the absence of classes - they will be replaced by structures. As opposed to classes, design in the code and application of objects of this type differs minimally from the procedural programming familiar to most starting coders. 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 -

New MetaTrader 5 Platform Build 1745

MetaQuotes Software Corp., 2018.01.11 13:58

New MetaTrader 5 Platform Build 1745

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/Vista
A 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.

MetaTrader 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. However, we strongly recommend using the 64-bit version of Windows 10.

The new version features the following changes:

  1. Terminal: The /auto key has been added to the installer, allowing to install the program in automated mode without additional actions required from the user. When the installer is launched with this key, installation settings will not be shown to the user, and the terminal will be installed at the standard path, with the standard Start menu folder name for the program. Example of such launch:
    C:\mt5setup.exe /auto
  2. Terminal: Fixed installer operation in cases when the user does not have appropriate operating system permissions.
  3. Terminal: Fixed excessive consumption of CPU resources when no actions are performed in the terminal (when there are no open charts and no actions are performed by the user).
  4. Terminal: The new version features automatic compression of *.log files at the file system level. The new functionality allows reducing the amount of disk space used by logs.
  5. Tester: The amount of cache during single test runs has been increased. This provides faster testing in 64-bit operating systems.
  6. Tester: Fixed optimization of trading robots using the MQL5 Cloud Network. Issues could arise with products purchased from the MetaTrader Market.
  7. Tester: Fixed calculation of spreads for bars generated in the "Every Tick" testing mode.
  8. Tester: Fixed selection of OpenCL devices in the strategy tester. Now, the visual tester is allowed to access all available OpenCL devices.
  9. Tester: The new version features automatic compression of *.log files at the file system level. The new functionality allows reducing the amount of disk space used by logs.
  10. MQL5: Fixed deletion of bars of a custom symbol using the CustomRatesDelete method.
  11. Fixes based on crash reports.
  12. Updated documentation.
The update is available through the LiveUpdate system.

How to trade on an external cryptocurrency exchange via MetaTrader 5   


Who might benefit from the article:

  • cryptocurrency exchange traders;
  • investors familiar with MetaTrader 5 and portfolio investments;
  • freelance programmers who can now execute the customers' orders related to cryptocurrency trading in a simpler (and cheaper) way;
  • everyone who follows the new MetaTrader 5 and MQL5 language features. 

First, we need to choose a cryptocurrency exchange providing a web API.

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.

We are also halting the development of the 32-bit versions of the MetaTrader 5 terminals. The updates for 32-bit MetaTrader 5 are to be completely stopped soon.
