Well ... the key article about MT5 ias this one (my opinion sorry):
MetaTrader 5 - More Than You Can Imagine! Do not look at the title of this article - seems - the title is promotional one.I am talking about content - content is really great and there are a lot of good links inside this article.So, basicly - I started with this one.Later on - I can describe about what I like, what I do not like, and what I do not understand sorry.Just for example - I really like this feature - moving sl/tp by mouse on the chart
I am trading almost in every day so it is what I like: stop loss/take profit may be moved by mouse as the lines on the chart.About programming - I personally was stucked with icustom ... you know that for MT4 - it may be really issue: if indicator was based on 3 other indicators and one of them is based on 2 others so ...

Windows 10 April 2018 Update to make saved MetaTrader passwords invalid
MetaQuotes Software Corp., 2018.05.04 09:35
On April 30, Microsoft officially released a major update of their operating system Windows 10 April 2018 Update. This update affects configurations and encryption keys similar to the installation of a new Windows operating system.
In order to protect traders' information, the MetaTrader platform binds all data to the operating system and hardware of the computer, on which it is installed. This protection method ensures that even if platform files are stolen, hackers will not be able to connect to traders' accounts or use products purchased from the Market.
Unfortunately, after the installation of Windows 10 April 2018 Update, all passwords of trading accounts stored on your computer will become invalid. We highly recommend that you prepare for the new Windows release and save your passwords in a safe place, in order to be able to connect to your accounts after the update.
Due to the change of encryption keys, applications purchased from the Market will lose one activation, because all products are bound to the operating system. We have provided an additional activation for all products purchased from the Market regardless of the operating system, just like we provided activations after the previous release of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Thus, MetaTrader Market users will not lose product activations after the installation of Windows 10 April 2018 Update.
Activations of demo products will also be lost, so you will need to re-download such applications from the Market.
