How to Start with MT5, a summary !

Sergey Golubev, 2017.03.12 08:23

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:

  • Market — A store of applications written in MQL4 and MQL5 languages.
  • Signals — Selling trade signals at a subscription fee with monitoring trade results.
  • Virtual Hosting — A native solution for twenty 24/7 failure-free operation of your MetaTrader trading terminals.
  • Freelance — A meeting point for traders and MQL4/MQL5 developers.
  • MQL5 Cloud Network — Buying and selling free computational power of Strategy Tester agents to organize distributed computing.

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).

Traders can also use MQL5 coupons to pay for products and services as well as to deposit funds to their accounts on the website. The coupons are distributed by some brokers among their clients for free.

What interesting is that i just started researching how to use MT5 again about a week ago. I seems like I try this at the beginning of every year. The platform seems so much better and I want to cross over, but the challenges for me are always the same it seems.

  1.   Paying coders to convert of existing coding from MT4 platform. Years ago Microsoft faced issue where people did not want to upgrade their systems because of existing software compatibility concerns. I think MQL needs to find a way to (without user coding knowledge) allow some the existing EA to function on MT5. Microsoft even had a “compatibility mode” for software. If MT4 to MT5 trade copiers can do it, why cant an internal function do it as well? Even if everything isn’t working 100%, or it the terminal is slowed in compatibility mode… at least MT4 users are becoming familiar with the platform.
  2.   Finding brokers who use the platform (I am even further limited because I am US resident)
  3. 3inding a way to get 99% backttesting data (I do all testing in MT4 and copy to MT5 platform)
  4. Just some simple videos showing user of MT4 how to transition to MT5 and where to find familiar functions seems warranted at this point. Not articles……but actual videos!!! Do you know I STILL have no clue how when after prematurely stopping a backtest, to review the final results data? I always have to let the backtest run the full data range to get the data. Im SURE its a simple step, the problem is I loss interest in searching after 30 seconds.

 

But I like the approach you at taking which is to get new comers to use it, because for existing MT4 users, its almost a lost cause. For us MT4 NON Programming types (because there are plenty of programming article for Mt4 to Mt5) we really need dumbed down transition videos. Anything else is WAAAYY too much effort.

Akamai Technologies provides MetaTrader 5 brokers with extra protection against DDoS attacks

MetaQuotes Software Corp., 2018.02.01 15:00

We have added the functionality of using third-party Anti-DDoS services. The new Anti DDoS Proxy Server component, allows brokers to shift the burden of blocking unwanted connections, to a third-party 4vendor's server network.

When using an Anti DDoS Proxy Server, all clients are connected to the provider's public access points, instead of being connected directly to the access servers. Unwanted connections are sorted out in the provider's own network of servers, while legitimate connections from real clients, are forwarded to the access servers. The broker's infrastructure is practically not affected.

Josh Shaul, Vice President of Web Security, Akamai Technologies

Josh Shaul, Vice President of Web Security, Akamai Technologies

Our partner, Akamai Technologies, is one of the world's largest infrastructure companies, offering a portfolio of cloud security solutions. The provider's massively distributed platform, is unparalleled in scale, with over 200,000 servers across 130 countries, thus providing customers with a superior performance and with a superior threat protection.

“By leveraging Akamai’s massive global network as a defensive shield, MetaTrader 5 will now be able to immediately bolster the protection of its clients from DDoS attacks", says Mr Josh Shaul, Vice President of Web Security, Akamai Technologies. "Our tools allow stopping attackers long before they are able to reach the MetaTrader 5 systems or clients”.

Where can I see my purchases?


The "Purchased" tab displays all the products downloaded and purchased using the current MQL5.community account. If MQL5.community account data are not specified in the platform settings, the tab name changes to "Downloads". It displays all downloads and purchases made in the current trading platform regardless of the account.

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.
