The widespread transition of brokers to the multi-asset HFT MetaTrader 5 platform is well under way, also in Turkey. In recent months, several large companies in Turkey announced the launch of the new product for their traders, including the Istanbul broker Info Yatirim. This confirms the interest of the market participants in expanding the range of offered platforms and their desire to provide traders with the most modern tools for trading in financial markets.
"As Info Yatirim, we have been using MetaTrader 4 for almost three years and finally got our MetaTrader 5 three months ago", says Can Alp, founder of Info Yatirim. "MetaTrader 5 allowed us to offer more financial products for our clients. Now, we are able to service not only Forex symbols, but also derivatives with the help of Borsa Istanbul VIOP Gateway. We are excited and expect to service stocks through the MetaTrader 5 platform soon. Since then, the MetaTrader 5 platform works fine without any issues and complaints from our clients. With MetaTrader 5, we can offer our main financial products under one application".

"We are expecting to see more brokers preferring MetaTrader 5 platform for their connectivity to Borsa Istanbul, even more so after the equity exchange integration", notes Mehmet Yildiz, CEO of MetaTürk Software. "I believe that the MetaTrader 5 platform will gradually increase its market share in the exchange markets in Turkey and will be ranked first sooner than expected".
