A Few Tips for First-Time Customers
A proverbial wisdom often attributed to
various famous people says: "He who makes no mistakes never makes
anything." Unless you consider idleness itself a mistake, this statement
is hard to argue with. But you can always analyze the past mistakes
(your own and of others) to minimize the number of your future mistakes.

This is stock market how-to information
A variety of integration gateways to liquidity providers and stock
exchanges have recently been developed for MetaTrader 5 trading
platform. Using these solutions, brokers now can greatly improve their
business and enter new markets. We have decided to summarize the first
integration results and make a list of already working MetaTrader 5
ECNs (Electronic Communication Networks) provide liquidity when using
MetaTrader 5. We have developed gateways to the most well-known
providers, and any MetaTrader 5 broker can now make use of their
Our gateways not only give access to liquidity providers but also
provide maximum speed of executing operations. Moreover, these gateways
are fairly simple and secure solutions allowing brokers to quickly
connect to a provider and use its services.
MetaTrader 5 has been developed as a multi-market platform. Nowadays, it can be used not only for arranging Forex trading but also for working on stock exchanges:
MetaTrader 5 platform's versatility makes it easy to expand the
brokerage business and enter new markets. For example, any Forex broker
can start working on a stock exchange, as well as a stock broker can
launch the platform on an exchange and then enter Forex market. In any
of these cases, all MetaTrader 5 technologies and services (social, mobile and algorithmic trading, as well as the market of trading robots) retain their functionality and remain attractive to traders.
The platform's features go beyond the proposed list, and the works on
integration of MetaTrader 5 with other stock exchanges and liquidity
providers are currently underway. Besides, Gateway API allows brokers to
develop a gateway to any system or exchange on their own. Some brokers
have already done that, while the proposed interfaces have greatly
simplified their work. Moreover, API allows development of a hybrid ECN
engine with multiple providers. That engine will act as trading server's
own ECN platform.
Is there any way to scale up or down a Signal that I've subscribed to?
For example, the signal has $200K in his account, but I only have $5K in my account.
Is it possible to change the scaling of the trades, so it scales the trades as if I have $10K in my account?
It is what I know (this question was asked many times for example) :
Can you change the ratio in which a signal is subscribed to?

You have only 2 ways to act on the calculated ratio :

New Article Publishing System at the MQL5.community
A huge contribution to the popularity of the MQL4 and MQL5
languages have made by the numerous articles, most of which were
written by you - by traders and for traders. We appreciate your hard
work. In addition to paying you for your articles, we are constantly thinking about how to make the process of writing simple, clear and comfortable for the authors.
We have analyzed our experience of
communication with the authors of articles and found the key point -
mutual understanding! Sometimes authors cannot understand why moderators
criticize the design and formatting of their articles. While we, the
moderators, obviously do not formulate well what we want from you.
We decided to solve this problem. As a
result, the MQL5.community site has got a new article publishing system
described below. In the new system, we have tried to make the whole
process of article writing clear and comfortable by breaking it into

Securing MQL5 code: Password Protection,
Key Generators, Time-limits, Remote Licenses and Advanced EA License Key
Most developers need to have their code
secured. This article will present a few different ways to protect MQL5
software. All examples in the article will refer to Expert Advisors but
the same rules can be applied to Scripts and Indicators. The article
starts with simple password protection and follows with key generators,
licensing a given brokers account and time-limit protection. Then it
introduces a remote license server concept. My last article on MQL5-RPC framework described Remote Procedure Calls from MetaTrader 5 to any XML-RPC server.
I will make use of this solution to
provide an example of a remote license. I will also describe how to
enhance this solution with base64 encoding and provide advice for PGP
support to make ultra-secure protection for MQL5 Expert Advisors and
Indicators. I am aware that MetaQuotes Software Corp. is providing some options for licensing the code directly from the MQL5.com Market section.
This is really good for all developers and will not invalidate ideas
presented in this article. Both solutions used together can only make
the protection stronger and more secure against software theft.

Note that the compiler moved inside MetaEditor, starting with build 900
Renat , 2014.03.01 10:54
We got rid of the additional components mql . Dll and mql . Exe, which is an external compiler languages MQL4/MQL5 and plugged directly into the editor.
Thus, we decided a few problems:
Console compiler MQL4/MQL5 stayed updated with the platform MetaTrader 4/5 and is always available on the links:
DLL files are no longer needed him.
