New MetaTrader 5 Platform build 1860: MQL5 functions for operations with bars and Strategy Tester improvements

New MetaTrader 5 Platform build 1860: MQL5 functions for operations with bars and Strategy Tester improvements

The MetaTrader 5 platform update will be released on June 15, 2018.
This platform update is only available for terminals running on Windows 7 and later operating systems. Earlier Windows versions are not supported.
The updated features the following changes:


  1. Terminal: The account opening dialog has been completely redesigned. Now, you may select a broker from the list and then choose the desired account type. This update has made the list of brokers more compact, since now it only displays company names instead of showing all available servers.

    Company logos are additionally shown in the list to make the search easier and more efficient. If the desired broker is not shown in the list, type the company name or the server address in the search box and click "Find your broker".




    Descriptions of account types have been added to the dialog to help beginners choose the right account. Also, to align with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the updated dialog may contain links to brokers' agreements and data protection policies:




    The possibilities for opening real accounts have been significantly expanded. The functionality for uploading ID and address confirmation documents, which was earlier presented in mobile terminals, is now available in the desktop version. Now, MiFID regulated brokers can request any required client identification data, including information on employment, income, trading experience, etc. The new functionality will help traders to open real accounts faster and easier, without unnecessary bureaucratic procedures.




    ...



As many people are asking about "How to open account with MT5" and "How to add the broker to MT5" so I want to remind the following links:

Two types of accounts are available in the trading platform: demonstration (demo) and real. Demo accounts provide the opportunity to work in a training mode without real money, allowing to test a trading strategy. They feature all the same functionality as the live ones. The difference is that demo accounts can be opened without any investment...

MetaQuotes Software Corp., 2017.03.28 09:23

One month ago we announced the launch of MQL5 coupons allowing brokers to support their traders willing to use the MetaTrader services. Just2Trade, RoboForex and FreshForex companies have become the first participants to implement the new loyalty program and apply coupons to motivate traders.

"By offering coupons to our existing and potential clients, we are pursuing two main objectives: attracting new traders and increasing the loyalty of our existing clients", — says Evgeny Zhilin, Head of Operations at Just2Trade, commenting on launching the coupons program. "Right from the onset, the new system has proved to be a powerful marketing tool improving the company stats in both quality and quantity. It provides a great way to stimulate clients to connect to strategies of successful traders. Our clients are able to see for themselves that Forex provides opportunities for stable profit if traded wisely. We offer 50 USD coupons for traders having at least 1 000 USD on their deposits. The coupons can be used to pay for the first month of a signal subscription".

Just2Trade, RoboForex and FreshForex already attract traders using MQL5 coupons

"In recent years, RoboForex has been developing a series of investment products, and a copy trading service is one notable example", — notes Vitaly Avtaykin, Managing Director of RoboForex. "This strategic direction shows a stable and dynamic growth of popularity among our clients, therefore we welcome the launch of the "MQL5 coupons" service from the industry leader — the MetaQuotes Software company. Several of our traders are at the Top of the MQL5 Signals service and have thousands of subscribers with the total amount of managed funds exceeding 12 million USD. Due to such a high demand for the product, we decided to launch a promotional campaign and distribute 2017 trading signals coupons for 40 USD each among RoboForex Ltd active clients".

"The new Coupons service from MetaQuotes is a convenient way to receive products and services for the popular MetaTrader platforms", — adds Alexander Goryachev, senior analyst at FreshForex. "General-purpose MONEY coupons for 50 USD have sparked the greatest interest among our clients since they allow refilling MQL5 accounts and paying for any services and purchases. There are also many customers willing to buy scripts and Expert Advisors. In order to popularize the new service, we are raffling off 10 coupons for $50 among our clients from March 14 to April 13. FreshForex has been working on Forex for 12 years already. The benefit of our customers is ultimately our benefit as well! Therefore, we follow the market trends in order not to miss exciting and practical gifts for our clients".

A number of other major brokers are actively testing the service at the moment preparing special offers for traders. Stay in touch! The number of companies offering coupons will soon increase significantly.

First in Indonesia: Java Global Futures switches to MetaTrader 5

MetaQuotes Software Corp., 2017.04.05 09:54

MetaTrader 5 discovers a new market with considerable investment opportunities – Indonesia. Java Global Futures based in Jakarta has become the first broker in the country offering the multi-asset HFT platform to its traders.

Java Global Futures switches to MetaTrader 5

Java Global Futures is a member of the Indonesian Derivatives Clearing House, Indonesia Futures Association (ASPEBTINDO) and Jakarta Futures Exchange (JFX).

"Frankly, Indonesian market is still very new to MetaTrader 5, since its members are mostly familiar with MetaTrader 4", — says Vincent Yohanes Chandra, COO of Jakarta Futures Exchange. "Initially, we faced a lot of rejections as I think it is very natural that people are quite resistant to changes (even if they are for good). However, we have been working very hard in educating our clients and marketing the benefits of MetaTrader 5 compared to MetaTrader 4, and it has been showing results over recent time. We strongly believe that adopting MetaTrader 5 is the right decision and, of course, we hope MetaQuotes will greatly support us as always. Customer Service is not a department, it is a philosophy in our company. We strongly believe in propelling service delivery through robust technology; MetaTrader 5 is surely one of the vital components in delivering quality service".

"According to our information, MetaTrader 5 prospects in Indonesia are quite promising, since it is an updated version of MetaTrader 4 which adds more features than the previous one", — adds Mr. Tan, Analytics Manager at the Indonesian Brokerforex.com portal. "We think, MetaTrader 5 can be a success in Indonesia, since traders in Indonesia are growing as well as brokerage firms".
