New account opening dialog in MetaTrader 5: useful for traders and regulated brokers
The latest platform version features a revised start dialog: traders can select a broker first, and then choose the desired account type
18 June 2018
The latest platform version features a revised start dialog: traders can select a broker first, and then choose the desired account type. To make the search easier and more efficient, company logos are additionally shown in the list. If you can't view the desired company, please type its name or server address in the search box.
We have added account descriptions in the dialog to help beginners choose the right account type. Now, traders can clearly see the difference between real trading accounts and risk-free demo accounts. To help brokers align with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the updated account opening dialog contains links to the relevant agreements and data protection policies.
The real account acquisition procedure has become easier — MiFID and MiFID II regulated brokers can request the required information straight through the platform. In earlier platform versions, traders could upload documents through mobile terminals. Now, this functionality is also available in the desktop platforms.
