Exploring Seasonal Patterns of Financial Time Series with Boxplot
This article features a description of the proposed statistical method for detecting seasonal patterns in financial time series. The
market may have monthly season cycles, as well as intraday cycles depending on the month. The hourly analysis has shown that with a
certain smoothing period (for example, a moving average), you can find certain cycles both inside sessions and when moving from one
trading session to another.
One of the advantages of the approach is the possibility to work with specific market patterns and the absence of over optimization
(parameter overfitting), and thus the trading system can be highly stable.
As for the disadvantages, the seasonal pattern mining process is not easy and involves operations with various combinations and
The analysis was performed for the EURUSD currency pair, with the 10-year time interval. Python source codes are attached at the end of
the article in .ipynb format (Jupyter notebook). You can perform the same study for any desired financial instrument, using the
attached library, and apply the obtained results to create your own trading system or to improve an existing one.

We have improved the MetaTrader VPS
infrastructure and expanded the network of data centers
Over the past year, the user base of the MetaTrader platform
virtual hosting has grown significantly. In this regard, we have significantly invested in the development of the entire
service infrastructure and considerably expanded the network of data centers.
The new hosting point in São Paulo has become the latest addition to the points pool, supplementing those in Frankfurt, London, New
York, Hong Kong, Singapore, Moscow and Amsterdam. We have deployed it in the same data center which hosts the B3
stock exchange (formerly BM&F Bovespa) and the largest Brazilian brokers. The close physical proximity to global
financial centers allows traders to rent a virtual copy of the platform with the smallest ping to brokerage servers anywhere in the
The side effect of upgrading the service is the necessity to increase VPS
prices. Currently the minimum price of renting a server for 1 month starts at USD 15. At this price, traders receive up to 3 GB of
RAM, up to 16 GB of disk space, several CPU cores and the minimum network latency to a broker.
The native VPS service from MetaQuotes differs
from common VPS solutions, since it has been specifically tailored to host trading terminals and is therefore available
directly in MetaTrader platforms. Tens of thousands of traders are already using the MetaTrader virtual hosting without
worrying about Internet connection speeds, PC malfunctions or power supply failures.
New users receive 24 hours of free service — test the VPS right now.

Multicurrency monitoring of trading signals (Part 1): Developing the application structure
As the Meta Trader 5 platform develops further, more and more opportunities emerge along with the appearance of new tools for working
with foreign exchange markets, stock exchanges, etc. One of the actively developing aspects is algo trading: newly created automated
trading systems accurately implement various sophisticated trading ideas. Nevertheless, part of market participants still prefer
manual trading. They create trading systems based on signals which follow specific rules and algorithms and in which the final market
entry decision is performed by human. This approach has a disadvantage as compared to an automated trading system: even with strictly
and clearly defined rules, there is a factor of human subjectivity. Although, many manual trading systems show positive results.

How to create 3D graphics using DirectX in MetaTrader 5
Three-dimensional computer graphics provide the impressions of three-dimensional objects on a flat display. Such objects, as well as the position of
the viewer can change over time. Accordingly, the two-dimensional picture should also change to create the illusion of the image
depth, i.e. it should support rotation, zooming, changes in lighting and so on. MQL5 allows creating and managing computer graphics
directly in the MetaTrader 5 terminal using DirectX functions. Please note
that your video card should support DX
11 and Shader Model 5.0 for the functions to work.
I decided to create this thread to help to myself and to the others to start with Metatrader 5.I am
experienced in MT4 and in forex in general (i hope : ) but we traders really need to collect all the information about it in one place.I
will make some posts about 'how I am starting with MT5'. :)
Please make your any question about Metatrader 5 and I will try to answer them, or we will reply all together.
