No, for MQL4 please use the original MetaEditor from MT4.
We are getting rid of dualism. We generally have 3 code generators in MetaEditor so far and this mess needs to be removed.
64 bit MQL5 will remain only.

Windows 10 May 2020 Update (version 2004) released - activations for purchased Market products added
MetaQuotes, 2020.06.05 16:17
On May 27, Microsoft officially released a major update of their operating system — Windows 10 May 2020 Update (version 2004). This update affects configurations and encryption keys similar to the installation of a new Windows operating system.
In order to protect Market products, the MetaTrader platform binds all data to the operating system and hardware of the computer, on which it is installed. Unfortunately, the update will make the launch of installed and activated Market applications impossible. Such applications will require a new activation, because all products are bound to an 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 October 2018 Update (version 1809).
Thus, MetaTrader Market users will not lose product activations after the installation of Windows 10 May 2020 Update (version 2004). Activations of demo products will also be lost, you will need to re-download such applications from the Market.
A Simple and Profitable Trading Strategy: Trading Gap (based on the article)
A “gap” in the market occurs when the opening price is either higher than the previous session’s high price (gapping up), or lower than the previous session’s low price (gapping down).
Gaps can be important in trading because there is a widely held belief among traders that gaps are usually filled quite quickly, which provides an opportunity for Forex traders to make a likely profit, because the most likely short-term direction of the price can be successfully predicted. A gap is defined as being filled when the current market price returns to enter the price range of the previous session. We can draw some exciting conclusions from this data that can help build a profitable gap trading strategy:
I just discovered about how to fix it:
go to the Journal in Metatrader to see the recommendation:
And I use this link to install the latest Internet Explorer:https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/internet-explorer-11-for-windows-7-details.aspxand I got the Market tab -
So, if you do not see the Market tab on the latest build of Metatrader (or if you are having the error with this Market tab for example) - install (or re-install) Internet Explorer to the latest version (to the version 11 for example).
Hey..how you doing?. I just downloaded the metatrader 5..at first look it's a jungle. Why it's only says Forex everywhere I look?..I want to trade the Dow30(US30). Never played anything else but classic stock market..I'm a Jesse Livermore/Nicolas Darvas disciple. Because of pressure from some not so skilled friends they want me to get into this platform and play the Dow30. So, how can I actually set up this thing so that I can start trading the Dow30?
Thank you very much,
