The MetaTrader 5 trading servers utilization by brokers is increased by a factor of 1.5, compared to the previous platform version ones. According to our latest study, the percent utilization of the MetaTrader 4 servers has dropped to 36.7%. This is an expected dynamic change: back in June 2021, we reported that MetaTrader 5 had become more popular than MetaTrader 4 among brokerage companies, and the trend has been increasing since then.

Renat Fatkhullin, CEO of MetaQuotes Ltd, has commented on the new statistics: "This is a logical and predictable result. MetaTrader 5 is a technologically advanced platform which offers the widest possible opportunities to users, and assists companies in solving business tasks of any complexity level. Furthermore, we expect a complete replacement of MetaTrader 4, amid the rapidly growing popularity of MetaTrader 5."

MetaQuotes' specialists believe that the growth in popularity is mainly due to the new Pay as You Go model and to a number of important MetaTrader 5 updates, which have been released over the past year.

The most noticable updates include but are not limited to:

  • The ability to administer cluster machines directly from the administrator terminal
  • Expanded capabilities of the Automations service
  • A new section for managing Integrations
  • New web integration capabilities
