Introducing native floating leverage support in MetaTrader 5 — here's how it can benefit your business

MetaTrader 5, starting from build 4150, introduces floating leverage support in the administrator terminal, enabling brokers to adjust leverage settings depending on the situation and company policies. With floating leverage, you can flexibly adjust the required margin size depending on the open position volumes. On the one hand, this offers smaller traders the opportunity to utilize maximum leverage, and on the other hand, it reduces the risks when dealing with larger clients. This solution is integrated into the MetaTrader 5 trading platform, and you can start using it immediately at no additional cost.

Introducing native floating leverage support in MetaTrader 5

Margin leverage is the additional capital that brokers provide to traders, enabling them to execute operations in financial markets. For example, if a trader has USD 10,000 of own funds and trades with a leverage of 1:100, they can open positions of up to USD 1,000,000. Brokerage funds can only be used in trading and cannot be withdrawn. This approach significantly amplifies potential profits for traders while also increasing the broker's revenue.

While some brokerage companies have previously worked with floating leverages in MetaTrader 5, they had to use third-party solutions, which caused certain inconveniences due to incomplete compatibility with the platform. Our solution is free from any compatibility issues and offers a range of advantages opening up even more opportunities for your business development.

Key features

Native integration. Developed in-house by MetaQuotes, our solution is integrated into the platform, ensuring accurate interaction with all components. The new functionality does not affect speed, reliability, or any other MetaTrader 5 operation aspects.

Transparency. The entire process is transparent to the brokerage company, which completely manages leverage settings. More importantly, end-users also benefit from full transparency, as they can view all conditions directly within their terminals.

Compatibility with trading robots. Our solution is fully compatible with trading robots, ensuring accurate margin calculations by algorithmic programs. This unique advantage cannot be achieved through third-party solutions, which may interact incorrectly with the trading platform, leading to the inaccurate execution of trading strategies.

Automation capabilities. Using Automations, an integrated service in the platform, you can enable automatic rule adjustments. Changes will be applied automatically under certain predefined conditions. For example, leverage can be automatically reduced an hour before trading closing time, when market liquidity is low, to mitigate potential trading abuse. Such automation can assist in planning risk reduction strategies and in promptly responding to any significant events that pose potential threats to your business.

Flexibility. Leverage settings can be applied to individual symbols or symbol groups, allowing you to apply common settings for the symbols in which you expect changes. Create multiple rule sets and switch between them automatically or manually as needed.

Cost-free. There's no need for any investments, whether financial or time-related. Configure the required rules in just a few clicks and benefit from new opportunities without any additional costs or complexities.

MetaTrader 5 now features a complete onboarding lifecycle, from a banner click to the first trade

In the latest version, MetaTrader 5 introduces the integrated payments service which enables traders to conveniently replenish their accounts directly within the trading platform. This service not only enhances platform convenience but also represents a culmination of a large strategic direction – customer onboarding. We have been gradually implementing new platform capabilities, and now the entire cycle of interaction with new users can be organized using the internal tools provided in MetaTrader 5. The challenge of effective onboarding is especially relevant for brokerage companies, given the growing competition and the reduced time window for decision-making. Assist users entering your ecosystem and ensure they don't have to waste time searching, figuring out complexities or navigating through the process blindly. The key strategy is to guide clients smoothly, yet confidently, from the initial click on your promotional banner to their first trade.

MetaTrader 5 now features a complete onboarding lifecycle, from a banner click to the first trade

How MetaTrader 5 helps organize efficient onboarding

Start by enabling the confirmation of contact details and by allowing the opening of demo accounts and preliminary real accounts directly from the terminal. Within the trading platform, you can request the confirmation of phone numbers and emails. Utilize this feature to maintain the integrity of your client database with accurate information and to establish a valid communication channel with each client.

1. Deep links

The first thing users see in the application is a wizard guiding them to open an account on your server

Right from the start, incorporate tracking tags into the links that lead your clients to download the platform. This allows accurate tracking of installation sources, even when users come from the App Store or Google Play. By using such deep links, you can determine the most efficient advertising channels and identify the best-performing advertisement types. Furthermore, you can set up automated opening of demo and real accounts. Users will not need to search for available options as the first thing they see in the application is a wizard guiding them to open an account on your server. This streamlines the user journey to a real account, resulting in maximum lead conversion.

2. KYC

User verification for your company security

The next important step is user verification for your company security. Built-in platform tools can automate up to 95% of data processing. This ensures an error-free, attentive, and, most importantly, swift experience for your clients at each stage. Users are only required to provide the requested information and send photos of the necessary documents. With this service, you can process 2,500 types of documents from 150 countries and assess risks according to local and international regulations. The level of personal data protection complies with the requirements in Europe (GDPR), the USA and Asia (PDPA).

3. Automations

In the context of onboarding, Automations is practically irreplaceable

The Automations service is capable of performing almost any task that you assign to it. Entrust your regularly performed activities to the service which will instantly and accurately execute every required action. In the context of onboarding, Automations is practically irreplaceable: welcome emails, reminders of the next step, technical notifications and stimulating messages. These automated processes efficiently guide clients through every stage of the sales funnel. The service will send messages without delays upon certain events, keeping your clients well-informed and on track to complete all required steps.

Provide guidance and assistance to customers who have just registered or are transitioning to real trading. Automated mailings for new clients improve user onboarding, facilitate real account opening, and encourage traders to make more deposits.

By eliminating the need to additionally register on your site, the user can almost instantly proceed to trading using integrated MetaTrader 5 solutions.

Effectively introducing the client to your offering is as important as the initial engagement. While it may seem that the customer is already inside the sales funnel and is about to open an account, consider the fact that about 70% of users abandon a site if they find the product information confusing. According to the recent Forbes research, the average bounce rate in 2023 is around 50%, which means that half of the global audience doesn't interact with websites beyond the first page. Furthermore, 88% of users will never return to a site after a negative experience. That is why it is important to pay extra attention to helping clients get started. MetaTrader 5 offers fast, reliable and secure solutions to help you build an efficient onboarding system.

Traders are not willing to wait longer than 4 ms — MetaQuotes study

MetaQuotes' research focused on traders utilizing virtual servers for automated trading. The analysis covered the users of MetaTrader VPS, the virtual hosting service for automatic round-the-clock trading with minimal network delays. The results have been compiled into infographics to present a comprehensive overview of the user audience.

Traders are not willing to wait longer than 4 ms — MetaQuotes study

One of the key findings of the research concerns the network latency between the virtual machine and the broker's server: 86% of traders prefer working with ultra-low latencies, not exceeding 4 ms. This preference can be easily explained, as high speed ensures predictable and stable operation of algorithms running on virtual machines. This minimizes the likelihood of price changes occurring before the order reaches the server.

Another part of the study concerning VPS purposes reveals that trading robots are more than seven times more popular than trading signal subscriptions. Thus, 86% of users run automated systems on virtual machines, and only 12% use hosting to copy signals. The results also show the geographical distribution of the most popular trading servers: 75% of them are located in just three countries. Additionally, a curious revelation was made regarding the geographical statistics of traders utilizing VPS: the top 3 countries are located on different continents.

Download MetaTrader 5 for macOS and Linux

We have prepared special trading platform installers quite some time ago. The installer for macOS is a full-fledged wizard with which the app is installed seamlessly, just like a native one. For Linux, we provide a script that can be downloaded and launched with a single command.

The installers perform all the required steps: they identify the user's system, download and install the latest Wine version, configure it, and then install MetaTrader inside it. All steps are completed in the automated mode, and you can start using the platform immediately after installation.

The installer links are available on the website and in the trading platform's Help menu:

For macOS: Check your Wine version

We have recently completely updated the macOS installer, incorporating numerous improvements. If you are already using MetaTrader on macOS, please check the current Wine version, which is displayed in the terminal log upon startup:

LP 0 15:56:29.402 Terminal MetaTrader 5 x64 build 4050 started for MetaQuotes Software Corp.
PF 0 15:56:29.403 Terminal Windows 10 build 18362 on Wine 8.0.1 Darwin 23.0.0, 12 x Intel Core i7-8750H  @ 2.20GHz, AVX2, 11 / 15 Gb memory, 65 / 233 Gb disk, admin, GMT+2

If your Wine version is below 8.0.1, we strongly recommend removing the old platform along with the Wine prefix in which it is installed. You can delete the platform as usual by moving it from the "Applications" section to the bin. The Wine prefix can be deleted using Finder. Select the Go > Go to Folder menu and enter the directory name: ~/Library/Application Support/. Go to this directory and delete the following folders based on the installed MetaTrader version:

~/Library/Application Support/Metatrader 5
~/Library/Application Support/
~/Library/Application Support/Metatrader 4
~/Library/Application Support/

After that, reinstall the terminal using our installers.

  • During the process, you will be prompted to install additional Wine packages (Mono, Gecko). Please agree to this as they are necessary for proper functioning.
  • The minimum macOS versions are Big Sur for MetaTrader 4 and Mojave for MetaTrader 5.

You no longer need to search for manual installation instructions or use third-party solutions. You can install the platform in a couple of clicks and instantly start trading:

MetaTrader 5 for iPhone/iPad: Bulk operations, 21 timeframes, and trading notifications

We continuously enhance the MetaTrader 5 mobile app for iOS by adding valuable trading and analytical features. In the past six months, we have introduced bulk trading operations, extra timeframes, trading notifications, and more. Here is a detailed overview of all these innovations.

  1. Bulk position closing and order deletion. The app now supports bulk operations for positions and orders. For example, you can close all open positions with just a couple of taps upon important news releases and thus promptly lock in profits. You can also quickly cancel all pending orders to prevent them from being triggered due to sharp price movements.

    To access bulk operations, tap the three dots in the positions or orders section or open the context menu for a specific operation.

  2. Trading notifications. Turn on notifications to always stay informed about trading operations on your account. The information is delivered in push notifications from the broker's server and thus you can receive it even when the app is not running. Depending on the settings provided by the broker with whom the selected account is opened, notifications may include information about orders, deals, deposits, and withdrawals. Notifications are enabled separately for each account; the setting is saved on the server.

  3. Profit/loss for stop levels. When moving the Take Profit and Stop Loss levels, you will immediately see the potential profit/loss you will incur if the level triggers. The values are displayed in points and monetary terms.

  4. Trading panel improvements. New settings enable the positioning of the trading panel above or below the chart. We have also increased the distance between the volume change options and the Buy and Sell buttons to avoid accidental order sending.

     Trading panel improvements

  5. Support for 21 timeframes. We have added 12 additional minute and hour timeframes to offer more options for price analysis. To add your preferred periods to the quick access panel, go to the timeframe menu above the chart and select them with a long press.

    The number of timeframes has increased to 21

  6. Advanced customization of trading levels. You can now individually enable/disable the display of position levels, pending orders, and Stop Loss/Take Profit levels.

  7. Screen lock. You can set a PIN code or use Face ID/Touch ID to prevent other users from accessing the app. If someone gains access to your iPhone or iPad, your trading account will remain secure. To activate this feature, turn on 'Screen Lock' in the Settings/About window and set a four-digit PIN. If the app remains hidden for over a minute, you will need to enter the PIN or unlock the app using Face ID/Touch ID.

    Screen lock

  8. Chat improvements. Several new features have been introduced in the built-in messenger which enables communication between members:

    • Ability to block a user in a personal chat and view a list of blocked users.
    • Display of user data when tapping on the user avatar.
    • Ability to report a message in chat by long-pressing it.
    • An additional menu for new chats created by users who are not on your friends list. If you receive such a chat, you can immediately add the user to friends or block and report them.
    • Display of the number of unread messages on the section icon in the app settings.

    Chat improvements

  9. Links to brokers' regulatory documents. You can now access all the necessary legal information from your broker directly in the account properties section of your mobile app. The availability of links depends on your broker.
  10. Numerous improvements and fixes. Over the past six months, dozens of improvements have been introduced to guarantee stable and swift app performance.
