Polish integrator Empirica Software starts development of institutional solutions for MetaTrader 5

Following Tools for Brokers, another team of software developers has announced the development of brokerage solutions for MetaTrader 5. The Polish integrator Empirica Software has become the next institutional software provider for companies using the advanced multi-asset platform. The trend becomes more visible as more brokers actively switching to MetaTrader 5 generate a demand for applications expanding and complementing the platform features, while tech service providers strive to satisfy this demand by pushing further the development of the platform and its infrastructure.

Empirica Software starts development of institutional solutions for MetaTrader 5

"For the last 6 years we have strengthened our market position as leading software partner for financial institutions and FinTech companies. We have developed a very strong algorithmic engine, that has already made one of our customers the fastest market maker on Warsaw Stock Exchange. We are pioneers in developing intelligent robo-technology based on machine learning. Now in cooperation with MetaQuotes we will support brokerage firms and investment companies in MetaTrader server extensions that will meet their specific requirements and needs in relation to the forex market. The customers of MetaQuotes can benefit from our ability to combine the high technical expertise and deep industry knowledge of our team", — says Michal Rozanski, CEO at Empirica S.A.

Tools for Brokers launches a portfolio of MetaTrader 5 brokerage solutions

Tools for Brokers has developed a set of solutions for the MetaTrader 5 trading platform to provide brokers with additional services and simplify their transition to the new technology. For the last seven years, the integrator team has been developing MetaTrader 4 plugins for over 250 companies around the world and has been among the first tech providers that recognized the potential of the next-generation multi-asset platform. The offered institutional solutions for MetaTrader 5 brokers includes:

  • Bonus Manager for reducing risks by canceling credit bonuses in case of unfavorable conditions
  • Multi-Level Agent Commission for creating a hierarchical partnership system
  • PAMM for creating an asset management system on the server
  • Bridge Aggregator — the gateway for connecting multiple platforms (MetaTrader 4/5) to multiple liquidity providers

 

"Our company has an exceptionally positive experience of working with MetaTrader 5", — says Aleksey Kutsenko, the founder and CEO of Tools for Brokers. "MetaQuotes Software has developed a brand new product featuring significant advantages in terms of convenience and functionality. I believe, MetaTrader 5 is a must for all brokers really planning for the future".

Among the many benefits of the platform, the Tools for Brokers team highlights the ability to select between aggregate and hedging positions on client accounts. This function allows for efficient arrangement of work on several financial markets simultaneously: ​Forex, CFDs, stocks and futures. Thus, the platform is able to meet the requirements of a wide variety of customers - from novice traders to hedge funds and large institutional clients.

 

Aleksey Kutsenko, Tools for Brokers

Besides, the developers from Tools for Brokers point out that unlike MetaTrader 4, the new platform has a modular architecture and its various components can be installed on different physical servers. First, this capability improves the platform performance and resilience: if one component suddenly fails, others continue working. Second, this means better protection against DDOS attacks since it is much more difficult to attack multiple servers at once. According to the integrator company team, another key advantage of MetaTrader 5 is that the 64-bit version of the server allows using a larger amount of RAM for storing considerable data volumes, as well as rendering services to more simultaneously connected clients.

"This year, the further development of MetaTrader 5 additions and plug-ins will be one of our key areas", — adds Aleksey Kutsenko. "Tools for Brokers is ready to provide any services related to the platform support and development of necessary solutions".

Do you already use coupons issued by your broker to pay for MetaTrader 5 services?

During the iFX EXPO Asia 2017 in Hong Kong, we officially announced the launch of the Coupons service. This new service allows brokers to support their traders willing to purchase applications and services for the MetaTrader platforms — from virtual hosting to trading signals subscriptions. The new service is an important tool for motivating and encouraging active traders, as well as expanding a client base.

MQL5 Coupons Service

A coupon is a text code to be inserted in the payment form on the MQL5.community or the MetaTrader platforms. Brokers can generate 4 types of coupons that you can use in your payments:

  • HOSTING — for paying the virtual server rental fees. For example, HOSTING-30-DSJK-B8AB-CEFC-C399-60BE — coupon for 30 USD to pay for virtual hosting.
  • MARKET — for the purchase of trading robots and technical indicators in the Market. For example, MARKET-50-CFCB-B7HB-CEFC-C519-72UC — coupon for 50 USD to pay for Market products.
  • SIGNAL — for subscribing to trading signals. For example, SIGNAL-40-IOPX-B1AB-GAPC-62BE — coupon for 40 USD to pay for a signal subscription.
  • MONEY — for depositing funds to an MQL5.com account to pay for any service including Freelance and MQL5 CLoud Network. For example, MONEY-50-2222-7777-8888-3333-2222 — general-purpose coupon for 50 USD used to deposit funds to an MQL5 account.

Using the service is simple: a broker generates a coupon and sends it to you along with the necessary instructions. Insert the obtained code to the payment form:


Do you want to try the paid services of the MetaTrader platforms for free? Ask your broker if it has available coupons.

Recently, a number of major brokers, including ActivTrades, Just2Trade, NAS Broker and Halifax Investment Services, announced the launch of MetaTrader 5 with hedging. This trend was supported by other prominent market players: GLOBAL FX, Global Equity Brokers (GEB) and Forexer Limited. The number of such companies is growing on a weekly basis — totally, more than 100 brokers from over the world already offer the flagship platform for trading on financial markets to their clients.

"We, in NAS Broker, are glad to present our clients with MetaTrader 5 — a professional multi-asset next-generation trading platform," says Oleg Sergeev, Senior Analyst at NAS Broker.

In NAS Broker, we support both netting and hedging accounts suiting the needs of various trading strategies".

More than 100 major brokers around the world offer MetaTrader 5

"Just2Trade Online focuses on high-tech brokerage solutions for all major world markets," notes Evgeny Zhilin, Head of Operations at Just2Trade Online, explaining the company's choice of the platform. "While having such a powerful product as MetaTrader 5, we do our best to make maximum use of it. Currently, Just2Trade clients have direct access to over 9 000 tools on NYSE, NASDAQ, LSE, FSE, MOEX, CME, NYMEX, ICE, EUREX, as well as the Forex market from a single account on the MetaTrader 5 platform".

"The addition of hedging meets the aspirations of many traders, current MetaTrader 5 users as well as others," adds Ricardo Evangelista, International Desk Manager at ActivTrades. "We believe it will appeal to many, including those currently using MetaTrader 4. From the early days, following the launch of MetaTrader 5, the request for hedging has been a constant. It was something desired by traders interested in exploring the potential of the platform but put off by the restriction on hedging. Now that is available we expect to see an increase in the demand for MetaTrader 5".

MQL4 and MQL5 are No.41 in TIOBE's language popularity index

The MQL4 language for programming trading strategies leaped 77 positions up in the TIOBE's language popularity index. MQL4 debuted as TIOBE's No.118 in December '14 and has jumped to the 41st position by November '16. It should be noted that the index authors treat both MQL4 and MQL5 as one MQL4 language.


TIOBE is the most popular index of programming languages, showing the language ranking dynamics in addition to its current position. The index is updated once a month showing what languages are becoming more popular, and what languages lose their positions. The rating calculation method is described in details here.

The main criterion is the number of search engine results for queries containing the name of the language. The more often MQL4/MQL5 is requested in Google, Bing, Yahoo, Wikipedia and YouTube, the higher the language position in the index. 77 positions up for 2 years is an impressive leap, which is an evidence of a growing popularity of trading robot development for the MetaTrader platforms.

We want to thank all users who support algorithmic trading and the MQL4/MQL5 languages!

In addition to the visual analysis of Time & Sales, the featured data can be exported to a CSV file for further analysis using third-party applications, such as MS Excel.

If you want to evaluate the new functionality, open a demo account with MetaQuotes-Demo and updated your MetaTrader 5. Your broker's platform should be updated to version 1375, in order to enable proper operation of Time & Sales on live accounts.

Largest brokers acknowledge the explosive growth of MetaTrader 5 popularity

Recently, one of the domestic Russian brokers Solid Financial Services has launched the MetaTrader 5 trading platform with the hedging system of position accounting. Following RoboForex, Alpari, FX Choice and other companies, SFS has become one of the first foreign exchange market participants to offer traders the ability to perform oppositely directed deals on a single symbol on real accounts in the fifth generation platform.

The new accounting system has been added to MetaTrader 5 at the end of April and has already received positive feedback from market participants. For example, one of the largest international Forex brokers — Alpari has noted the significant growth of the number of new accounts. This confirms that currency traders actively use locking and prefer brokers offering such an opportunity.

The interest in MetaTrader 5 has been sparked among exchanges as well. In less than a year, the number of brokers offering MetaTrader 5 on DGCX (Dubai Gold Commodities Exchange) has increased from 1 to 10, while growing from 1 to 5 on PMEX (Pakistan Mercantile Exchange), including the largest market maker of the exchange — ACM Gold. A number of major international and national stock brokers are preparing to launch the platform in the near future, while the rest are planning its implementation.

Such an excitement among Forex and exchange brokers is quite natural since MetaTrader 5 features the complete set of tools for trading in all financial markets. Powerful trading system, versatile technical and fundamental analysis, algorithmic and social trading, as well as other advantages of the popular platform have attracted traders from the very beginning. The recent advent of the hedging system and the web version allowing traders to work via any browser have dramatically accelerated the process of switching to MetaTrader 5.

"Alpari has decided to rely on MetaTrader 5 and turned out to be right" — says Boris Shilov, Chief Executive Officer of Alpari. "In May 2016, MetaQuotes has released the long-awaited MetaTrader 5 platform version with bidirectional trading. This feature is familiar to most traders and maximizes the number of available strategies. Alpari has been the first one to offer the platform version on the market. Our clients are satisfied with the high speed of order execution, while we are satisfied with the increasing number of newly opened accounts. I believe that MetaTrader 5 is a worthy alternative to highly popular MetaTrader 4, and I am sure that MetaTrader 5 will become the key platform for our clients worldwide".

Vitaly Avtaykin, managing director of RoboForex

Vitaly Avtaykin, managing director of RoboForex

"The ability to open hedge accounts has been much anticipated by brokers and traders.

We have no doubts that this step will contribute to the shift of industry standards from MetaTrader 4 to MetaTrader 5 in the near future" — states Vitaly Avtaykin, managing director of RoboForex. "This is already confirmed by our actual experience: we are offering MetaTrader 5 hedge accounts since May 26, and they already comprise 54% of the total number of accounts, while their turnover is much higher compared to netting accounts".

"Successful companies always meet the needs of their clients" — states Gaies Chreis, COO of MetaQuotes Software Corp. "We are glad that many brokers were quick to see traders' needs and start offering the MetaTrader 5 trading platform. In doing so, they demonstrated their understanding of market trends and desire to provide traders with the most advanced technology".

Today, MetaQuotes Software Corp. has released a new version of the MetaTrader 5 trading platform build 1325. The most important feature added is the hedging option, which until recently was only supported in MetaTrader 4. Now the platform permits users to open opposite positions of the same financial instrument.


MetaTrader 5 Now Features Hedging Option

The introduction of the widely demanded hedging option is expected to encourage more traders and brokers to switch to MetaTrader 5. There are no more reasons to continue using MetaTrader 4: finally traders have the ability to use the familiar hedging method combined with all the advantages of the powerful MetaTrader 5 platform.

"Why use two platforms, when you can access all the required functionality in one of them?" commented Renat Fatkhullin, CEO of MetaQuotes Software Corp. "MetaTrader 5 is not just a multi-asset platform, now it offers specific features for different financial markets. The netting trading system is available for exchange traders, while forex traders can use the familiar hedging mode."


The built-in Chat in MetaTrader 5


Also, the new MetaTrader 5 version allows testing trading robots and technical indicators using real tick history. The new feature increases the accuracy of reports on Expert Advisor testing and optimization thus reducing the risk of loss for traders. Another innovation in MetaTrader 5 is the built-in chat, which allows discussing financial news and trading strategies with other traders straight from the platform.


More Convenient User Guide in MetaTrader 5


The new platform version also features a more convenient user guide with more illustrations, explanatory diagrams, interactive images, and videos. The updated user guide contains less text while providing more useful information.

New MetaTrader 5 Android build 1262 features hedging!

The latest version of the MetaTrader 5 Android is already available for download on Google Play. One of the main features added is support for hedging. Now, you can open oppositely directed positions on a single currency pair.

Open a hedge account to access the position accounting system that is well known from MetaTrader 4. The system allows you to have multiple positions (including opposite directed ones) on a single symbol. If you have an open position for a certain symbol and execute a new deal, a new position is opened, while the existing one remains intact.

New MetaTrader 5 Android build 1262 features hedging

Apart from hedging, the updated MetaTrader 5 Android platform features the portrait mode. Now, you can browse conveniently through long lists of trading operations, as well as read your mail and financial news.

Please note that hedging is currently available only for opening demo accounts on the MetaQuotes-Demo server. Brokers will be able to support hedging in MetaTrader 5 in the near future.

Meet the MetaTrader 5 beta version with hedging and the new user guide

MetaTrader 5 beta build 1281 featuring the hedging system has been released. Unlike the usual netting system, the hedging one allows conducting multiple trades even on opposite direction of the same symbol. Now, you can use the netting model to trade exchange instruments and the hedging one for currency trading using the MetaTrader 5 institutional platform.

The new system of positions is similar to the widely known system applied in MetaTrader 4. However, MetaTrader 5 offers enhanced order management capabilities: filling orders using multiple deals, including partial fills. If a trader has an open position at a symbol and performs a new deal, a new position is opened. That is the core idea behind the MetaTrader 5 hedging system. The trader can set Stop Loss and Take Profit levels, as well as see the profit level for each of the positions.

Updated MetaTrader 5 trading platform with the hedging system for position accounting

We invite everyone to join the public testing of the updated MetaTrader 5 multi-asset platform. In order to join the test, create a demo account on the MetaQuotes-Demo server and connect to it. The platform will automatically update to build 1281 and you will be able to create a demo account with the hedging position accounting system after setting the "Use hedge in trading" option in the dialog window. If you identify an error, please inform us via the mql5.com forum or create a Service Desk request.

Create a demo account with hedging on MetaQuotes-Demo

While testing, please consider the following:

  1. Subscription to trading signals from hedging accounts does not work.
  2. Trading on a new hedge account works correctly only in MetaTrader 5 build 1281 and later builds.
  3. Some trading robots may trade incorrectly on a hedge account.
  4. Scripts, Expert Advisors, and indicators compiled using the new MetaEditor build will not run on virtual hosting.

Apart from hedging, the MetaTrader 5 beta version features the updated user guide with tons of illustrations and video tutorials. Simply click F1 to get answers to most of your questions and enhance your knowledge of the platform.

With the updated MetaTrader 5, it is no longer necessary to use different platforms for Forex and stock exchange. Now, this is a one-stop solution for trading on a variety of financial markets.

Download the new beta build, try all the new features, and let us know the test results. With your help, we will make MetaTrader 5 even better!

Rent Market Products and Save Your Money!

Today, you can not only buy MetaTrader Market applications but also rent them. Renting a product is clearly much cheaper than purchasing a full license. Do you have any doubts about buying a trading robot? Do you want to test an indicator without the demo version limitations? Simply rent a program for a certain period of time to make sure that it is really what you need.

The amount of programs that can be rented is increasing daily. The Market already provides over 350 such applications:


Rent Market Products and Save Your Money


The new option is beneficial for developers as well, since they are able to attract more clients by lower prices and more flexible payment conditions. Developers decide whether their products are available for rent and set appropriate rental fees. Thus, application sellers can significantly expand their customer base, since many potential buyers are reluctant to purchase a product due to its high price.


Buyers, in turn, are able to try an application by renting it at a low cost. Unlike a demo version, a rented program has no limitations. After the rental period expires, you can easily extend it or buy a full version.

Happy New 2015 Year!

The year of 2014 has been extremely fruitful for MetaQuotes Software. We have managed to reach the new technological frontiers and implement our plans. One of the main events of the year is the launch of MetaTrader 5 platform on FX Market part of Moscow Exchange (MOEX). Now, traders from Russia are able to trade the ruble pairs using the most powerful platform with loads of built-in services.

The completely new restyled version of MetaTrader 5 for Android with the depth of market, tick chart and news appeared in Google Play one month ago. MetaTrader 4 Android is to be enhanced soon. Development of the iOS versions is also underway.

This year, we have also launched the virtual hosting service allowing traders to rent a virtual server directly in MetaTrader. This is the most efficient solution for arranging uninterrupted work of trading robots and Signal subscriptions.

Following MetaTrader 5 platform, MetaTrader 4 now features the app store of its own, which has already become the main resource for buying trading robots on the Internet. Apart from Expert Advisors and indicators, the Market now contains financial journals and books as well. 

Trading signals have been thoroughly revised as well. We have improved their look in the platforms, optimized and enhanced their description, expanded trading statistics and eased the rules by allowing partial copying and manual trading. This has led to even greater demand for copy trading built right into the platform.

More and more traders discover the benefits of Jobs service for MetaTrader 4/5. This summer, we published the interesting infographics revealing that more than 10 000 orders worth about $600,000 in total had been executed, while 3 000 customers and 300 developers had already used the service by that time!

Six months ago, we also launched the service of financial blogs - a convenient place for exchanging views, fresh information and new ideas on trading. Now, the most important financial news selected by the moderators from the multiple blog entries are sent directly to the platforms and viewed by millions of MetaTrader users.

Thus, it is not surprising that the number of registered MQL5.community members has tripled over the year. In the beginning of January, we had 150 000 users. Now, their number exceeds 440 000!

New representative offices have been opened in the United Arab Emirates and Republic of South Africa. MetaQuotes Software is growing and reinforcing its presence on the world map.

Why Virtual Hosting On The MetaTrader 4 And MetaTrader 5 Is Better Than Usual VPS

Renting a virtual server right from the MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 terminals is the optimal way to ensure uninterrupted work of your trading robots and Signal subscriptions. Essentially, it is an analogue of a VPS though it is better and more suitable for addressing needs and challenges that a trader comes across. The server can be rented straight from your MetaTrader. It takes only a couple mouse clicks for Experts Advisors, indicators, scripts together with Signal subscriptions and settings to be transferred to the virtual server. The Virtual Hosting Cloud network was developed specially for MetaTrader and has all the advantages of a native solution.

Certainly, there are alternatives to virtual hosting but a closer look reveals that they do not compete. The first thing that comes to mind is using a home computer as a budget option. It could work, however a stable internet connection and uninterrupted power supply are not guaranteed. A VPS can be rented from a suitable provider found on the internet. That could be feasible but it implies a manual search for a server having minimum latency with the required Forex-broker's. Such a puzzle does not suit everyone.


Clearly, why not skip this painful process of finding the lesser of two evils and opt for the best solution customized to meet your trading requirements. Get a virtual server right now and try it out. You have free 24 hours of hosting so you can appreciate all of the advantages of our service!






Virtual server + your MetaTrader = powerful engine "all in one" for autonomous trade of your robots

As automated trading and copy trading develop, virtual hosting becomes irreplaceable. There is no other way of achieving consistent around the clock work of trading robots and subscriptions to successful traders' signals. Native virtual hosting ideally suits for launching any trading robots in the MetaTrader terminals regardless of whether you wrote them yourself, bought them on the Market or commissioned third party developers in the Freelance. Rather, the robots bought in the Program Market have an additional advantage. The number of allowed installations does not change unlike when launching licensed products on a usual VPS.

If you do not trade with Experts but actively use signals and copy other traders' deals, you will see that virtual hosting offers all you need. It guarantees uninterrupted work of all your subscriptions. Only with MetaTrader, can you with just one click obtain a correctly configured and ready terminal located on the server of your choice ensuring a minimum latency with your trader.

A virtual server ensures minimum network delays

One of the most important advantages of the virtual hosting over ordinary VPS is the proximity of our servers to the brokers' trading servers. It brings down to the minimum the network delays at trading operations. VPS servers can be located anywhere as they are designed for a wide range of tasks and are not customized for work with brokers' servers. Even specialized Forex VPS services usually have 1 or 2 server locations, which do not cover all brokers.


If you rent a standard VPS, you will need to find suitable types of servers yourself through trial and error. It is a waste of time and money, which does not guarantee that the rented VPS will have low latency to the broker's trading server. Virtual hosting in MetaTrader is good enough to stop this fruitless search. Rent a virtual server straight from your terminal and compare it with an ordinary VPS. You have a free 24 hours that you can either use continuously or break them down.

It is as simple as ABC because the virtual terminal does not require installation nor setting up

Another advantage of the virtual hosting is simplicity of launching a terminal. You do not need to install or set the terminal up.

The virtual terminal was created specially for work in the virtual hosting network and receives all settings right from your terminal after manual synchronization. Just start your MetaTrader 4 or MetaTrader 5, open required charts and symbols, launch indicators and Experts, specify the terminal settings and you are ready for automated trading. Now all you need to do is to rent a virtual server from your MetaTrader and perform migration.


Renting a server is very easy and managing it does not take any effort. Starting, stopping, canceling hosting and control over usage of the virtual server resource are immediately available from MetaTrader. For that, a fully subscribed trading account Navigator features an icon with the location name and the state of the virtual server. Simply call the context menu and when you click on "Details" you will get the control and management dialog window.


There you can start and stop a terminal copy, synchronize the client terminal current environment with the virtual one and view the charts of processor resource utilization as well as disk space and RAM. It must be emphasized that migration of your charts, launched robots and indicators as well as parameters of copying trades are performed only per your request. This way you have full control over transferring your launched robots and signal subscriptions as there is no automatic synchronization of the client terminal and the virtual one.

 

This is why virtual hosting in MetaTrader 4/5 is better than standard VPS

Summing up:

  1. Creating a terminal copy is very simple and you can do it right in your MetaTrader platform.
  2. You can easily rent a server with minimal network delays to your broker's trading server.
  3. You can control the work of the virtual terminal right from your client terminal connected to the relevant trading account.
  4. The rent fee is deducted automatically - in the MQL5.community payment system or from your trading account.
  5. You can test the virtual hosting in a 24-hours' free trial period.

Trading with MetaTrader, it is truly logical to rent a virtual server right from the terminal.

Are you still in doubt? Rent a virtual server right now, launch a virtual terminal and check out the advantages of the native hosting!

Our infographics provides data on the achievements of the most active sellers of Expert Advisors and indicators as well as other informative indices.

Signals providers keep up with the sellers on the Market. There are "stars" of the service enlisting up to 1 000 subscribers and earning $20 000 monthly even at the minimum subscription price of $20 a month.

Two years down the line after the launch of the application Market and copy-trading service, the atmosphere is getting intense as traders are actively buying and selling programs and signals right in the MetaTrader terminals. The link of MetaTrader and the MQL.community is becoming an all-embracing and complete solution where each trader finds what they are looking for.

MetaTrader AppStore Results for Q3 2013

Another quarter of the year has passed and we have decided to sum up its results for MetaTrader AppStore - the largest store of trading robots and technical indicators for MetaTrader platforms.

First of all, AppStore for MetaTrader 4 has been released in beta mode and the final version is to be launched soon. However, trading robot developers can already publish their MQL4 applications there. More than 200 programs have already passed the tests. They will be available for traders immediately after MetaTrader 4 Market is launched.

More than 500 developers have placed over 1 200 products in MetaTrader AppStore by the end of the reported quarter. This exceeds the previous quarter results by one third. The largest share among the published applications is occupied by trading robots (45% of the total number of products) and technical indicators (34%). AppStore visitors can also purchase panels, analyzers and various utilities to expand the possibilities of their trading platform.

MetaTrader Market: Range of Applications for MetaTrader 4/5

Along with the increase in the number of developers and products, the number of traders actively using the Market is also growing. The milestone of 150 000 downloads of trading robots and technical indicators has been reached in the third quarter. This number includes installations of free and commercial product versions since the launch of AppStore. The breakpoint of 100 000 downloads has also been passed just a little while ago - in the second quarter of this year.

MetaTrader Market: Downloads of customer indicators and robots for MetaTrader 4/5

Sales

The sales of MetaTrader AppStore commercial products maintain a high growth rate (increased by 33% comparing with the previous quarter) and steadily increase in proportion with the number of downloads. This can be explained with the influx of new visitors to the AppStore and growing number of resales to the current clients - over 36% of buyers have purchased two or more AppStore products (+2% comparing with Q2 2013).

The third quarter has not brought any significant changes to the structure of sales by product categories. Technical indicators are still the most popular products in quantitative terms (45% of total products bought). Trading robots run a close second (41%). Panels occupy the third place with 6%.

MetaTrader Market: Number of trading robots and indicators sold by category

In monetary terms, trading robots (Expert Advisors) leave all other product types far behind. This product category occupies 85% in MetaTrader AppStore's total turnover. Trading robots are followed by indicators (9%) and panels (5%).

MetaTrader AppStore TOP-10 Sellers

We have again prepared the list of TOP-10 Market sellers summarizing the results of Q3 2013. The list includes the best of 500 developers of trading robots and technical indicators with the highest sales volumes for the reported period.

TOP-10 MetaTrader AppStore sellers (Q3 2013):

  1. arnbober (Arnold Bobrinskiy) - new on the top list
  2. johnnypasado (Jeremy Scott)
  3. iTC (Gennadiy Stanilevych)
  4. PzTrading (Arturo Lopez Perez) - new on the top list
  5. cameuh (Camille Huot) - new on the top list
  6. DC2008 (Sergey Pavlov) - new on the top list
  7. figurelli (Rogerio Figurelli)
  8. mttruc (Mai Thanh Truc) - new on the top list
  9. champions763 (Agus D Riadi) - new on the top list
  10. song_song (Jinsong Zhang) - new on the top list

For Q3 2013, the rating has changed significantly. First, we have a new leader - the newcomer arnbober. He has provided two products for sale - trading robots of Bobra series. Both of them enjoy popularity and have good sales volumes. Second, our top list has as many as seven newcomers. They have entered the list while selling various products: trading robots, technical indicators, analyzers and utilities. For example, a seller DC2008 sells only Analyzers.

The total sales of the TOP-10 sellers have comprised 39% of the overall amount of programs sold in Q3 2013. This is 4% less than in Q2 which can be explained by the growing number of sellers and sold Market applications. Our list of top sellers may change further after AppStore for MetaTrader 4 is officially launched. We will certainly follow up on this.

Prepare your MQL4/MQL5 applications for MetaTrader 4/5 and sell them on the multi-million market.

How to Make Money from MetaTrader AppStore and Trading Signals Services If You Are Not a Seller or a Provider

This summer we have launched a new affiliate program to help MQL5.community members promote their products and signals. However, it is beneficial not only for MetaTrader Market sellers and paid trading signals providers but also for common users. Now, you do not have to write Market applications on your own or sell subscription to your signals to make money on MQL5.com. You can simply help promote these products and receive your profit share.

It is pretty simple:

  1. You place a web link/widget to MetaTrader Market application or a trading signal on any website.

  2. A user clicks you web link and buys that application or subscribes to the trading signals.

  3. The profit share set by the application's seller or the signals provider is transferred to your account.

Share the link, attract buyers and get your profit share

Now, let's examine this in more details accompanied by screenshots:

So, you have entered MQL5.com website and you want to make money here. You can do this by participating in the affiliate program and promoting products/signals of the community members. Select a product/signal, move to its description page and find a text block specifying a profit share in percentage terms (if a profit share is not specified, a payoff is not provided by a seller).


  1.  



  2. Copy the specially generated web link from that text block


    or a widget code by clicking "Get a widget code":


    Get a Widget Code

  3. Share the copied web link via social networks, forums, blogs and your personal website


    Share the copied web link via Twitter


    Share the copied web link via Facebook


    or insert the widget code to your forum and blog messages or your website:


    Insert the Widget Code to Your Blog


  4. The main thing is done. Now, you have to wait until an interested user clicks your web link/widget and purchases the application or subscribes to the trading signals. As soon as it happens, the specified profit share is transferred to your MQL5.com account.


    The specified profit share is transferred to your MQL5.com account

    Suppose that the application's price is $100, and the seller has specified a payoff of 35% for an affiliate link. It means that you receive $35 for each buyer you attract. Let's assume that a monthly subscription to a signal costs $50 and a payoff is 10%. Then, you will receive $5 for each subscriber you attract.

As you can see, it is possible to start making money on MQL5.com right now without having to be a seller of Market applications or a profitable signals provider. Select the products you like and post links to them on various web resources. Attract potential customers and the profit is yours!

Trading Signals Statistics Expanded on MQL5.com Website

We have implemented a number of changes to Signals statistics to simplify evaluation of results. Now, you can quickly assess the trading activity of a selected signal, as the informative value of the charts has been considerably improved.

First, Growth and Balance charts now feature the vertical line dividing them in two parts - the time intervals before and after connecting the signal to the monitoring. Thus, it is possible to trace the point, at which the signal has been connected to the monitoring, and examine the differences in trading activity between these time intervals.


Second, blue and green parts of Growth and Balance charts are now interchanging at each non-trading operation (depositing or withdrawing the funds from the account). The more such interchanges you can see, the more non-trading operations have been detected on the account. View the signal's history to determine the type of each non-trading operation (depositing or withdrawal).


Third, Risks tab has been implemented. It consists of MFE (Maximum Favorable Excursion - maximum profit that could have been fixed before closing the trade) and MAE (Maximum Adverse Excursion - maximum loss detected during the trade) distribution dot diagrams. Each deal has its own potential profit (MFE) and potential loss (MAE) values displayed on the appropriate diagrams. Besides, these diagrams also display best and worst trades, maximum consecutive wins and losses, as well as maximal consecutive profit and loss.


Fourth, best and worst trading series can now also be seen on Growth and Balance charts. Just hover your mouse cursor over the necessary parameters in the table below.


With the extended statistics, traders can quickly see the results of signal's trading activity and assess their risks. This can be useful both for potential Subscribers and those who want to enable private monitoring of their accounts. Open the description of any signal on the website and try the extended statistics right now!

MQL5.community: Private Monitoring Included in Trading Signals

By popular demand of traders, we have launched the new private monitoring service. Now, while creating a new signal, you can restrict access to it, so that the entire trading statistics is visible only to you. No one else will be able to access that data or subscribe to that signal.

If you want to track the status of your accounts in private mode without revealing the details of your trading strategy, then the private monitoring is what you need!

Private Monitoring Included in Trading Signals

Of course, you can allow access to your trading signal at any time. You do not have to provide your personal data when creating a private signal, as it is not intended for sale. Therefore, any user can connect the private monitoring to his or her account right now!

Another piece of good news: Growth tab has been updated in the signal's statistics. Now, it additionally shows the growth of funds for the specified time interval - month or year. This allows a more detailed assessment of the signal's reliability in trading. Thus, you can immediately determine how successful the Signals Provider was during a particular month or year.

Growth Tab

But that is not all. In the near future, users of the MQL5.com social trading service will get new opportunities. Follow the news!

MetaTrader 5 Gateways & Connectivity Depth of Market in MetaTrader 5

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 gateways.

Liquidity Providers (ECNs)

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 services:

  1. Integral
  2. CitiFX Pro
  3. Hotspot FX
  4. FastMatch
  5. Currenex

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.

Stock Exchanges

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:

  1. Moscow Exchange (former RTS)
  2. Singapore Mercantile Exchange (SMX)
  3. Dubai Gold and Commodities Exchange (DGCX)
  4. Global Board of Trade (GBOT)
  5. BM&FBOVESPA (Brazilian stock exchange)
  6. Ukrainian Exchange
  7. Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME)
  8. Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE)
  9. Australian Securities Exchange (ASX)
  10. Turkish Derivatives Exchange (TURKDEX)

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.

MetaTrader 5 can work with 5 ECNs and 10 Exchanges

Social Trading with the MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 Trading Platforms

What is social trading? It is a mutually beneficial cooperation of traders and investors whereby successful traders allow monitoring of their trading and potential investors take the opportunity to monitor their performance and copy trades of those who look more promising.

You monitor real-time trading of a number of traders, connect to the most successful ones and copy their trades in automatic mode - that's what social trading is about. For novice and inexperienced traders who have just turned to financial markets for additional income, it is probably the best opportunity to actually start trading.

Social Trading with the MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 Trading Platforms

You do not need to be a professional trader with a great bundle of knowledge and skills in order to trade professionally. Nor do you need to follow and analyze the news from financial markets, work out and implement trading strategies and be prepared to change the ones that fail to keep monitoring their performance in the new market conditions. Thanks to social trading it all becomes unnecessary since you can simply copy trades of all those who follow the news, analyze markets and create profitable strategies.    

Is it difficult to start mirror trading and how much does it take? While hedge fund investing was not available to many due to high entry threshold (hundreds of thousands and millions of dollars), social trading is a highly affordable system available to absolutely any trader with any income level. It opens up access to a large market with vast opportunities that you, too, can use.

Social trading advantages are obvious:

  • Additional income for both traders and investors
  • Investment diversification
  • Opportunity to connect to the most successful traders and automatically mirror their trades
  • Low entry threshold: you can start with a minimum budget
  • Practice opportunities: you can trade on demo accounts in a training mode
  • Time saving
  • High operability and user-friendly interface

Ready to take the opportunities offered by social trading but don't know where to start? MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 are the most famous and popular platforms for social and mirror trading, with Trading Signals service being a very convenient, advanced social trading feature offered in these platforms. Social trading with the MetaTrader platforms is very straightforward: the user chooses the signal directly in the terminal, subscribes to it and from that moment on all trades are copied in his account.

Trading Signals with Automatic Execution on Your Account

Social trading with MetaTrader will allow you to monitor trading activity and profitability of successful traders, and most importantly, copy their trades. If you see a positive trend in performance of one of the traders whose signal is available for subscription, go ahead with it and start copying his trades. The trading terminal will automatically mirror all trades of the signals provider in your account, without any manual intervention necessary.

So, after subscribing the trader can earn money using the Signals service, without effort, skills or trading experience.

After all, social trading should be simple and straightforward to be easily understood by traders with any background. We cannot but admit it. In this light, MetaTrader trading signals appear to be perfectly adequate. They are available to any user, regardless of their trading experience. Here, you are not required to sign an agreement with a provider of the selected signal or a broker, nor is there any paperwork or manual control necessary. Everything is done automatically.

All you need is to specify your broker and enter the number of your account on the broker's server. Nothing more than that. Subscription process will take very little time. The description of a step-by-step subscription procedure is available in the article entitled "How to Subscribe to Trading Signals". After reading it, you will subscribe to the signal of your choice quickly and easily. 

How to Subscribe to Trading Signals

Despite being seemingly complicated, choosing a provider of the suitable signal has been made as simple as possible - the Trading Signals section features a regularly updated list of providers. By default, signals on the list are sorted by quality ensuring that top positions are taken by signals with higher credibility and better financial performance. However, for your convenience trading signals can also be sorted by monthly growth, number of subscribers, price and other parameters.

Social trading with the MetaTrader trading platforms is easy, straightforward and available to everyone. Out of thousands of available signals providers, you just need to choose the one that suits you more and measures up to your parameters!

New Reward Scheme for Attracting Users

We have recently launched a poll on MQL5.com forum to know your opinion on the affiliate program. As we have expected, the option "Yes, I sell trading applications and signals and I am ready to share my margin with affiliates" has turned out to be the most popular.

Now, we want to reveal the details of the planned affiliate program. The new reward scheme will help MQL5.community members promote their products and signals. It is beneficial both for sellers and promoters. While participating in the program, sellers will increase sales volumes of their applications, signals providers will attract more subscribers and promoters of affiliate web links will receive their well-earned interest from sellers and providers. It is a win-win situation for all the participants!

New Reward Scheme for Attracting Users

Have you posted a web link or a widget of a Market product and it has been used by a purchaser? Then your reward is waiting for you! Have you shared a web link or a widget of a paid signal and a trader has subscribed to it? Then it's time to receive your payoff! 

Sellers and signals providers can specify the size of the reward to be received by promoters. The payoff is calculated relative to the product's full price – application developer/provider specifies the percentage value that is to be transferred to a promoter's account at the time of purchase/subscription. For example, if the application's cost is 100 US Dollars and the payoff is set to 25%, a promoter will receive 25 US Dollars to his or her account.

Signal or Market product editing web pages allow you to specify the payoff amount (in percentage value of the product's full price) to be transferred to a promoter when a web link or a widget is activated.


Potential promoters can find out the payoff amount at an affiliate web link and widget receiving block of the product's page.


Promoters can track their affiliate web links and earned funds via Partner section of their MQL5.com profile. Both the total number of attractions and the number of successful ones are displayed there. Successful attractions are the ones followed by subscription to the signal or purchasing a product in the Market using an affiliate web link. In addition, the amount of US Dollars earned at each web link to a particular product or signal is displayed.

Partner section of MQL5.com profile

Now, it has become much easier to encourage MQL5.community members in advertising your products and signals, as soon as real money is involved. Share your profit with community members who are willing to distribute web links and widgets of your applications and signals and become popular with our affiliate program! We offer more customers for you and more profit for your promoters!

Five months ago, we reported on 500 000 users of MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 mobile platforms. By April 2013, this number has doubled reaching the level of one million mobile MetaTrader users! Such a good momentum clearly shows that our mobile applications are in demand among the widest possible audience.

"We are greatly encouraged by reaching the level of one million users of MetaTrader mobile platforms. This means that we are on the right track, and our solutions meet the needs of traders" - comments Gaies Chreis, COO of MetaQuotes Software Corp.

Rating System of Trading Signals Improved

We have revised the rating system of MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 trading signals. Now, the system considers the signal's quality based on the trust of its subscribers. Thus, the more subscribers connect to the signal, the more credibility it has. As a result, the rating of such signal will be higher. The rating system will be the same both for paid and free signals.


Rating System of Trading Signals Improved


Considering that sorting by quality will be enabled by default, signals having higher credibility will become more noticeable. However, trading signals can still be sorted out by growth, number of subscribers, price and other parameters for more convenience.

We hope that the new rating system will simplify your search for the appropriate trading signals.

MetaTrader 5 Trading Platform Certified by Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME)

We are pleased to announce the official certification of the MetaTrader 5 trading platform by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME). Due to this, CME brokers now have the opportunity to use MetaTrader 5 when dealing with their customers at CME.

The trading platform connects to the exchange via a specially developed gateway that ensures correct handling of market data, as well as trading operations and generates reports as required by CME.

MetaTrader 5 Trading Platform Certified by Chicago Mercantile Exchange

Apart from CME, the trading platform has already been certified by a number of various world exchanges. However, the platform has evolved beyond exchange certifications. During the first two months of this year, two brokers at Moscow Exchange have already launched MetaTrader 5 for Live trading. More brokers are preparing to offer Live trading very soon on the exchange through MetaTrader 5.

Stock exchange traders' response to the MetaTrader 5 trading platform that previously associated the platform only with Forex market, appeared to be very positive. The platform major advantages as per trader feedback so far include high performance, a wide range of analytical functionality and the ability to use advanced solutions in the field of mobile and automated trading.

"MetaTrader 5 has appeared to be a very good choice for us, - comments Alexander Dubrov, Head of Internet Trading in Otkritie Financial Corporation. The back office solution is the best we have seen and the interface is very user-friendly. Judging by the first positive feedback from traders, the trading platform has a promising future."

Having completed the CME certification, MetaQuotes Software Corp. now intends to focus on brokerage companies that are members of CME. "Realizing that the launch of a new platform can be quite challenging for a broker, we proactively offer our assistance and support to stock market participants, - says Gaies Chreis, COO of MetaQuotes Software Corp. It is certainly a complex process that requires time but based on the traders' feedback so far, we stand a good chance."

In addition, the company keeps working on the integration of MetaTrader 5 with other world exchanges. In the next two months, we are planning to complete the certification for TURKDEX and Warsaw Stock Exchange.

Twenty Cents for Each MetaTrader 5 Installation Via Your Link!

In the spring time, we released the new feature on MQL5.com – "Attract Visitors". Users started receiving rating points for each web link that was placed on a third-party web site and used to attract new members of MQL5.com. Articles, orders in Jobs, programs in CodeBase, trading signals, MQL5 Cloud Network, MQL5 Market applications and even user's own profile – you can place web links on almost everything. Thus, active MQL5.community members can increase their ratings and convert their rating points to credits – the system's internal currency.

Ten Cents for Each MetaTrader 5 Installation Via Your Link!

Now we go further and introduce an additional opportunity to increase the rating. All registered MQL5.com web site users can find a referral link for downloading MetaTrader 5 client terminal in their profiles and place it on third-party web sites to increase their ratings in case of real downloads. We should warn those who are going to use any fraudulent schemes: rating points will be added only in case a user who downloaded the terminal actually starts working in it. A user who placed the referral link will receive 10 points (=20 cents) for each download of the terminal.

The entire algorithm looks as follows:

  1. MQL5.com web site user enters his or her profile, clicks "Achievements" and finds "To the MetaTrader 5 Terminal" subsection at the bottom of the web page containing the referral link for downloading MetaTrader 5 load file. This is a special referral link which has a user ID proving that the link was used for downloading MetaTrader 5.





  2. Copy the link and place it on the web site you are interested in. This may be your page in a social networking service, a personal web site, blog or forum.
  3. Any user coming to your web site can see this link, download the terminal in one click and start using it.
  4. As soon as this action is confirmed on MQL5.com, you receive 10 points to your rating as the link owner. Obtained points can be converted to credits at the rate of 50:1. It means that you can receive 1 credit for 50 points of your rating (5 downloads via your link). 

Thus, we pay you 20 cents per each MetaTrader 5 download via your link. So, have you copied the link in your profile, placed it on your web site and some users have already clicked on it and downloaded MetaTrader 5? Then it's time to receive some profit! One download brings twenty cents, while ten downloads bring one dollar!   

As you can see, all is quite simple. Just copy the special web link for downloading MetaTrader 5 and place it on your web site. As soon as users start downloading MetaTrader 5 via your link, your rating on MQL5.com will significantly increase. Just give it a try!

500 000 Traders Use MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 Mobile Terminals

Over half a million of traders from all over the world currently use MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 mobile terminals in their trading activity. This figure is the most objective proof of the high quality and functionality of the mobile applications developed by MetaQuotes Software Corp.

83 000 traders use MetaTrader 5 terminals, while 418 000 traders use MetaTrader 4. This statistical data includes the terminals both for iPhone and Android devices. Though both mobile platforms have almost similar functionality, the wider popularity of MetaTrader 4 is obvious. This can be explained by widespread distribution of the platform on the market.

"We are glad that we managed to release the applications that have become so popular. Positive statistical data suggests that we are on the right track, and we should continue our development in this direction" - said Gaies Chreis, company COO.

500 000 Traders Use MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 Mobile Terminals

The statistical data has been gathered during the last six months from the time when MetaQuotes ID was introduced in the mobile terminals. These unique identifiers have been designed to send service messages to traders' terminals. They also allow defining the number of actually used terminals. MetaQuotes ID is assigned to a mobile terminal only when it is launched. In other words, statistics consider only the terminals that have been actually launched and used.

Download and, most importantly, use MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 mobile terminals. Have a nice trend!

We are pleased to announce that the MetaTrader 5 trading platform has been successfully certified by the Ukrainian Exchange. The certificate received from the Ukrainian Exchange states that the platform is in compliance with all requirements of the Ukrainian part and admitted to trading on the Ukrainian Exchange derivatives market.

Any broker now has the opportunity to serve his clients on the Ukrainian Exchange using MetaTrader 5, while any trader can trade on the Ukrainian Exchange. Connection to the exchange in MetaTrader 5 is provided via the UXGateway developed specifically for this purpose.

The certification of the platform by the Ukrainian Exchange is a well thought out move towards strategic integration of MetaTrader 5 with world exchanges. This year, MetaQuotes Software Corp. has already succeeded with a number of significant exchanges and continues to actively develop gateways for new trading venues. The most critical goal the developers have set is to offer massive opportunities for MetaTrader 5 users to conveniently trade on any world exchange.

"Lately, we have been very active in integrating MetaTrader 5 with international exchanges and have done a big job over the last year," - says Gaies Chreis, COO of MetaQuotes Software Corp. "Thus, integration with the Ukrainian Exchange is the fifth integration accomplished this year.

MetaTrader 5: Providing Traders with Trading Robots!

"Algorithmic trading should become popular" - that is the motto of MetaTrader 5 trading platform development. We have applied our best efforts to make trading robots available to the widest possible range of traders.

MQL5.Community

Modern MQL5 development environment allows users to develop Expert Advisors and technical indicators of any complexity. MQL5.com website contains plenty of useful information for developers, while MQL5 Cloud Network service allows them to perform tests and release new programs much faster.

However, all this is not enough to make algo trading really popular and let all traders use MetaTrader 5 platform's advanced features. Working towards this goal, we have already released MQL5 Wizard allowing any user without special knowledge to create Expert Advisors. All traders are now able to discover the world of the algorithmic trading.

In addition to that, we have launched Jobs service on MQL5.com. Now, any trader can place an order for development of a trading robot or an indicator, and it will be fulfilled by experienced developers. More than two years have already passed since the service launch and it is still developing rapidly. 3 200 orders have been fulfilled via this service by now. New orders appear at a growing rate, and the algo trading is used by traders more and more actively.


MQL5 Wizard, Jobs and Market


The launch of MQL5 Market has become the next logical step aimed to make algo trading even more popular. Now, any trader can buy a trading robot or a technical indicator right via the terminal. By the way, MQL5 Market already contains more than 280 applications available to any MetaTrader 5 user.

Looking back at the past, we can say that the automated trading becomes more popular. Most importantly, we can see a steady and growing demand for trading applications among common traders. They are more interested in new ways of making money on Forex and they order development of trading programs, as well as buy them in Market actively. This process is now gathering pace. However, it cannot be called widespread yet.

This means that we will continue to improve our solutions. Let all traders have their own trading robots!

We are pleased to announce that MetaTrader 5 now features Trading Signals, thus giving a powerful tool to investors and managers. While you are following the trades of a successful trader, the terminal will be automatically reproducing them in your account!

Automated Trading Championship 2012 Has Started!

At last it happened - on October 1, 2012 started the sixth Automated Trading Championship 2012 in which representatives of 59 countries will participate! Personal data is verified, Expert Advisors of all registered participants are finally checked and the list of contestants is approved. This year 451 trading robots will fight for the 80,000 US dollars prize. 

Top three places in terms of EAs allowed to the competition are traditionally shared by Russia - 156 participants (34,6%), Ukraine - 38 (8,4%) and China - 24 (5,3%). By the number of participants Belarus has been on the fourth place last year, while this year it yields to Germany with its 15 participants and now shares fifth place with Indonesia, Spain and the United States (each has 13 participants).

Automated Trading Championship 2012 Has Started!


As always, there was a large drop-out of applications from Indonesia. While at the moment of 09.21.2012 personal data of 261 representatives of this country has been approved, only 13 trading robots came to the starting line of the Championship. This is mere 5% of the original amount of competitors who passed the first step of verification. To be fair we must note that India also was in the top three by the number of submitted applications after registration end. But only two of 193 participants who filled out their details will compete for prizes.

For this Championship start we timed the release of the new version of Signals - now in order to copy deals from an account of trading signals provider all you need is to subscribe to it. The new upcoming build will let you automatically copy deals of a selected Automated Trading Championship 2012 participant directly to the MetaTrader 5 terminal.

We would like to express our gratitude to our sponsors for their commitment in organizing the Automated Trading Championship 2012: Alpari (UK) Limited, United World Capital LTD and RoboForex LP.

SMX and MetaQuotes Software Corp. Have Held the Trading Championship

From March 19, 2012 to April 5, 2012 SMX exchange and our company arranged and carried out SMX Trading Championship. The competition was held at SMX exchange and students from the following Singaporean universities were invited to participate: National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University and Singapore Management University.

SMX and MetaQuotes Software Corp. Have Held the Trading Championship

According to the Championship rules, each participant started its trading activity having $200 000 on the account. The task was to increase it as much as possible by trading SMX GOLD Futures, SMX EUR_USD Futures and SMX Cooper Futures contracts.

As in the Automated Trading Championship, SMX Trading Championship used the same parameter to determine the winners - maximum profit. But unlike АТС, SMX Trading Championship was the competition of traders, not trading robots.

Three winners were determined on April 5 upon the competition end. The first place belongs to Song Jiashun Marc, the student of Singapore Management University (SMU). Mr. Song increased his initial deposit by half within a bit more than two weeks. That is a great result!

The second and third places went to students Leong Jie Larp ($292 000) and Kok Ho ($280 000) from Nanyang Technological University (NTU). Both participants also showed impressive results falling behind the leader just for a small bit. Unfortunately, the representatives of the National University of Singapore have lost the competition and have not found themselves among the winners.

According to the organizers and participants, SMX Trading Championship was successful. About 500 students were among its participants and more than 25 000 trading operations were performed using various SMX exchange financial instruments. MetaTrader 5 trading platform certified for SMX in January this year has been used during the competition.

SMX and MetaQuotes Software Corp. congratulate all the competition participants and winners once more. Let favorable trends be with you!

Now it is also more convenient to work with charts. The earlier versions supported only the landscape orientation — in the new version simply rotate your device to switch to the portrait mode.

The Portrait Mode of ChartsThe Display of Expanded Quote Information

In addition, the iPhone version now supports display of expanded quote information. The window of quotes contains spreads, time, High and Low prices to provide traders access to the full price information in the real time mode.

We will continue to expand the functionality of the mobile terminal. The next version of the MetaTrader 5 for iPhone will support use of indicators. This means that traders will receive a powerful trading tool with almost the same features as the desktop version of the MetaTrader 5. This exciting combination of portability and reach functionality opens up even wider opportunities to traders.

A Market of MQL5 Programs Opens Its Doors

In late March we announced the launch of the beta version of the new Market service on MQL5.com. Now, when most of the work is completed, we are opening a fully-fledged Market of ready MQL5 programs. We are grateful to all who participated in the beta testing – we have tried to implement most of your suggestions and comments.

Starting today, any developer of MQL5 programs can register as a Seller in this service. After moderation, the programs will be available to all the registered users of the MQL5.community.

The Market of MQL5 Programs

With the Market, ordinary traders can easily purchase MQL5 programs required for their daily activities: Expert Advisors, indicators, trade panels and various analytical tools. Now you don’t need to look for MQL programmers, order required programs and patiently wait until they are ready. Simply go to the Market and find a ready solution.

For the developers of MQL5 programs, the Market is an exciting opportunity to capitalize on their skills. Their knowledge of how to develop Expert Advisors can earn them significant income, incase their programs are popular among the user of the MetaTrader 5 Client Terminal. The higher the number of the product downloads is, the more money will appear on the developer’s account.

With our new service you may stop worrying about the safety and efficiency of programs. All the developments published in the Market are subject to strict moderation – our specialists will carefully examine each application, filtering out all malicious and non-working programs.

It should be taken into account that the first few weeks you will not find a wide assortment of programs in the Market – this service is only starting to gain momentum. However, developers have already started to submit their programs and accumulation of a large number of offers in the Market is just a matter of time.

We gradually expand the boundaries of automated trading from a purely professional category letting it spread to the masses. Obviously, automated trading requires much more place than just a community of MQL programmers. The release of the MQL5 Wizard made it available to ordinary traders without programming skills. Furthermore, the launch of the Market will accelerate this process.

We invite all developers of MQL programs to the Market – fill out an application, register and sell your programs. You have done a lot to learn the MQL5 language, and now it’s time to reap the rewards!

New Features in the MQL5 Wizard

In early 2011, we released an exciting tool for EA development, intended for all traders who have no MQL5 programming skills. With the emergence of the MQL5 Wizard in the MetaEditor, traders have received a convenient resource for developing Expert Advisors without programmers' help. Many traders have already appreciated the possibility to create an EA in just four clicks with the Wizard and compiled their first EAs.

However, the functionality of the first MQL5 Wizard could seem incomplete to the most demanding traders. Therefore, we decided to enhance the features of the MQL5 Wizard by adding new functions allowing to create more flexible Expert Advisors. Ultimately this will increase the number and variety of Expert Advisors created using the Wizard. Soon more new features will be introduced in the MQL5 Wizard to make it even more useful for everyone who wants to create custom Expert Advisors.

New Features in the MQL5 Wizard

The main feature of the new version is the ability to utilize data of a combination of algorithms. In the previous version, an Expert Advisor could be created on the basis of only one algorithm of signal generation - for example, using the indicator data or the MA crossing algorithm. The new version offers a new convenient way to use a combination of algorithms for generating more accurate signals. For example, you can easily generate an Expert Advisor that will use data of MA crossing confirmed by a trend indicator like Parabolic SAR.

Another important innovation will be the system for assigning weights to each signal. For example, you can assign 1 to the signal produced by MA crossing, if this is the main signal, and 2 to the Parabolic SAR - in this case the Expert Advisor will first of all use the data of the signal with a higher weight when taking a trade decision.

The emergence of the upgraded MQL5 Wizard significantly enhances trading opportunities. Now, in addition to the conventional manual trading, any trader can create Expert Advisors and use them in automated trading. You do not need to order the development of EAs from professional programmers any more - with the MQL5 Wizard you can easily create your own trading robots.

More details will be published on the eve of the release. Follow the news.

MQL5 Wizard makes development of Expert Advisors even easier!

In late October 2010, as part of the MetaTrader 5 Client Terminal, the MQL5 Wizard was released. This wizard is designed for automatic generation of an Expert Advisor code. With MQL5 Wizard, knowledge of programming languages is no longer a prerequisite for creating trading robots. Earlier it really was an impassable obstacle to creation of trading strategies, but the release of the MQL5 Wizard changed the situation radically. With the new Wizard, the programming experience is not required - the application will do all the necessary work to create an Expert Advisor.

MQL5 Wizard makes development of Expert Advisors even easier!

The main advantage of the Wizard is its convenience. The program allows to significantly simplify the process of trading robots development, creating different Expert Advisor modules for you. All you need is set the required parameters and select the necessary components - and the MQL5 Wizard will do the rest. The creation of trading robots has never been so fast and simple.

MetaTrader 5 Strategy Tester!

Today we have released the beta version of MetaTrader 5 Strategy Tester. This program is the integral part of the MetaTrader 5 Client Terminal being designed for the purposes of testing and optimization of MQL5 Expert Advisors.

With the testing you can assess the qualities of your Expert Advisor on history data before launching it in real trading. Optimization allows choosing the most profitable parameters for your Expert Advisor making it a real efficient one. The Strategy Tester is an indispensable tool for developers of Expert Advisors. It is almost impossible to develop a profitable an error-free Expert Advisor without the tester.

As compared to the tester in MetaTrader 4, the new MetaTrader 5 Strategy Tester is a more powerful and accurate tool. It has obtained the new function of distributed optimization that will be useful in work with compound Expert Advisors. Besides that, the Strategy Tester offers efficient testing of multi-currency Expert Advisors.

"The Strategy Tester is the last component from the set of required tools for efficient development of Expert Advisors. This set also includes the MQL5, MetaEditor, debugger and execution module in the MetaTrader 5 terminal. The absence of a tester was the last obstacle to the wide possibilities provided by the MQL5 environment. We hope that together with the release of MetaTrader 5 Strategy Tester, the number of new MQL5 Expert Advisors will sharply increase", - the senior developer of MetaTrader 4/5 terminals and MQL4/5 said.

September 9, 2009 - Milestone Day for MetaTrader 5!

September 9, 2009 marks a major milestone in our effort to make the MetaTrader 5 trading platform available to our clients. We are in the final stage of its development and announce the beginning of its closed beta-testing.

The new client terminal has been sent to some members of the MQL4.community for testing. They will help us find and fix errors that, unfortunately, oftentimes slip through when new products are developed. Being created from scratch, MetaTrader 5 is no exception.

The MetaTrader 5 terminal has been already comprehensively tested in our testing department. However, we decided to conduct this closed testing, so that ultimately the general public gets the most stable and reliable terminal. The closed testing will be followed by the public beta-testing where everyone can participate. Just stay tuned!

Automated Trading Championship 2009 Will Not Be Conducted

Dear clients,

Organization and conduction of the Automated Trading Championship is a very complicated and cost-consuming project. For the maintenance of this competition our company needs to involve tens of specialists from different departments. Among persons involved in the conduction of Championships there are developers of trading platforms and specialists of the software testing department.

MetaTrader 5 Trading Platform

As you might know, now we are engaged in the development of a new trading platform MetaTrader 5; its release is planned for this year. All our forces are now concentrated on the platform release, and soon it will be presented to you for beta testing. Focusing all our resources on this release, we don't want to be distracted from this target.

Besides, the new platform will contain a new environment for the development of trading strategies - MQL5 IDE. We find it more reasonable to conduct the next Championship using the new language. However, it is unlikely that potential participants will manage to learn MQL5 and write new Expert Advisors in it. Due to this the number of potential Participants may be much lower - this is sure to have a negative effect on the attraction of the Championship.

Taking into account all this we decided not to conduct the ATC this year. Instead of this we will concentrate our efforts on the release of the new MetaTrader 5 platform and next year we will conduct the Championship for Expert Advisors written in MQL5.

TeamWox Corporate Management System Released

In 2006, we have developed our first corporate management system (Groupware) for the needs of the company. Initially, the application was not for sale.

Thus, the development of TeamWox commercial system started. Currently, it incorporates all our achievements and experience in the development and use of groupware systems. TeamWox is a simple, convenient and functional tool for managing a modern company.

TeamWox Corporate Management System
