Pepperstone strengthens its MetaTrader 5 multi-asset offering by launching US shares

The leading Forex broker Pepperstone has launched US share contracts with after-market trading, with no data fees, on their MetaTrader 5 platform. Traders are now able to take positions on big names, such as Tesla, Alibaba and Apple.

Pepperstone's unique US shares offering allows clients to trade in and out of positions after the main cash session has closed. This enables portfolio diversification as well as increased risk management options. Given that most major company reports are released in the after-market session, traders can take positions for the most popular US equities before market open.

Pepperstone is an award-winning online broker with 150+ instruments, across a range of asset classes, offered to more than 73,000 clients around the world.

Mr. Tamas Szabo, Pepperstone Group CEO

Our focus as a business is to continue to innovate and respond to what our clients want and provide assets that offer our traders the opportunity to access new markets. US shares are an excellent way for our clients to not only diversify their portfolio but also trade in the after-market sessions, which is when most of the action happens with after-hours reporting being the norm."

Integration with Python and support for Market and Signals services in Wine (Linux/macOS) in MetaTrader 5 build 2085

In the new MetaTrader 5 version, we have added an API which enables request of MetaTrader 5 terminal data through applications, using the Python high-level programming language. The API contains multiple libraries for machine learning, process automation, as well as data analysis and visualization.

MetaTrader package for Python is designed for efficient and fast obtaining of exchange data via interprocessor communication, directly from MetaTrader 5. The data received via this pathway can be used for statistical calculations and machine learning.

MetaTrader 5 integration with Python

We have optimized the store of trading robots and the copy trading service: the Market and Signals sections now operate up to 7 times faster. Furthermore, the built-in platform services have become available for traders using UNIX-like operating systems, including macOS, Linux and Ubuntu. The new build features support for "Market", "Signals" and "Search" in Wine.

Market and Signals support in Wine

The built-in learning program has been translated into more than 30 languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Portuguese and German, among others. Hints only appear for the actions which the user has never performed in the platform. The training progress bar is seamlessly displayed in the toolbar.

Built-in interactive learning system in 30 languages

New options in the updated platform enable verification of phone numbers and emails, as they have been specified by traders when opening demo and preliminary accounts. The need for data verification is determined by the broker. If the option is enabled, confirmation codes are automatically sent to the trader during an account request and special code fields appear in the dialog box. Confirmation codes are valid for several minutes.

Phone and email verification in MetaTrader 5

We have expanded payment options through the PayPal system. After logging into PayPal, traders can allow further payments to MetaQuotes Software and make other purchases with one click.

Payment for services via PayPal

In MetaTrader 5 build 2085, we have performed a large internal optimization of the strategy tester, which enables much faster testing for some of the task types and higher operation stability. Major improvements include:

  • Operations with frames on local, network and cloud agents have been optimized. Such operations are now processed faster and are never skipped.
  • The tester can now redistribute tasks to agents during the optimization process. If a new agent has become available, the tester automatically creates a new package of tasks, using those which were earlier distributed among other agents.
  • Optimization logging has been extended: it includes detailed statistics related to the MQL5 Cloud Network usage.
  • Operation of cloud testing agents has been optimized: now computation tasks are distributed more efficiently.

FXFlat launches trading of CME and Eurex futures in MetaTrader 5

The German-based FXFlat broker continues to broaden its portfolio of financial instruments. MetaTrader 5 traders will now be able to trade popular Eurex and CME futures.

In April, a two-week futures trading beta testing phase for selected clients was initiated. Since May, all customers can use this offer and trade futures and Spot Forex using one identical account. FXFlat now provides direct trading access on the German derivatives exchange, Eurex. In addition, the online broker is expanding the offer with US futures from the world's leading derivatives exchange, CME. Popular futures, such as E-mini S&P 500, E-mini Nasdaq 100 and E-micros, are currently tradable with FXFlat.

For Mini-DaxFuture, the intraday margin is 500 Euro and for the big FDAX it is 2,500 Euro, only 10% of the average exchanges margin requirements. For E-mini Dow YM, the intraday margin is, for example, 500 Euro.

Through the MetaTrader 5 trading platform, FXFlat clients receive tick-by-tick data and not just snapshot data, which is updated only every few seconds. In addition, MetaTrader 5 enables hedging of futures: clients are able to hold long and short positions simultaneously in the same futures contract.

Samed Yilmaz, FXFlat

Samed Yilmaz, FXFlat

— It’s not only that FXFlat started to offer exchange traded futures, but beyond that, FXFlat has equipped this product with a multitude of unique advantages, such as the very low margin requirements, the cost free realtime exchange quotes for active clients and the low commissions, — Mr Samed Yilmaz, CFOO at FXFlat, comments. — For example, FXFlat customers pay an all-inclusive price for futures trading: the exchange fee is not charged to them separately, but they pay only a fixed price per contract, starting at 1.00 EUR per contract halfturn.

FXFlat Wertpapierhandelsbank GmbH was founded in 1997. It is regulated and supervised by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) and holds all the required licenses and approvals.

Invast Global prepares for iFX Expo with MetaTrader 5 Liquidity from 30 Exchanges including NYSE, NASDAQ, LSE, ASX, Xetra and Euronext

Specialist multi-asset prime brokerage Invast Global will present a simple "one-click" MetaTrader 5 liquidity solution for brokers. Hedge funds, asset managers and global brokerage firms will receive single-stock pricing and execution across a breathtaking array of global stock exchanges, including leveraged long/short market access.

With connectivity to multiple exchanges, the service will allow retail brokers across the world to begin offering up to 30,000 single stocks alongside the traditional FX, Metals and Index instruments in MetaTrader 5. Invast Global will provide full operational support, including server configuration.

The Invast Global team have signed pricing distribution agreements with various exchanges. This significantly simplifies the process for brokers, meaning that they only need to have one price distribution agreement with Invast Global rather than a separate agreement with each exchange.

Mr Gavin White, Invast Global

Mr Gavin White, Invast Global

"By solving the operational issues around corporate actions and stock borrowing, we have suddenly made the multi-asset prospect a high-value, achievable proposition for retail brokers," says Invast Global CEO Mr Gavin White. "We have also solved the other major headache of exchange price redistribution and we have additionally provided the possibility to deliver data to retail brokers via API along with FX, Index and Metals liquidity. We think we have enabled a tipping point for the industry to begin the migration to multi-asset capability. There is no reason for brokers to confine themselves to the traditional retail offering."

Invast Global has offices in Sydney, Tokyo and Hong Kong and operates under an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL) issued by the ASIC. The JASDAQ-listed Japanese parent company Invast Securities Co. has a 60-year history as a Forex and Securities brokerage and enjoys stable, long-standing relationships with numerous tier-1 bank prime brokers.

Updated economic calendar, MQL5 services and interactive training in MetaTrader 5 build 2007

The new platform version features a completely revised built-in Economic Calendar. This is MetaQuotes' proprietary solution featuring over 600 indicators related to the 13 largest global economies: from the USA and European Union to Australia and China.

Information is collected from public sources in real time and thus this is one of the most complete, accurate and fastest solutions existing in the market. All indicators can be sorted by date (day, week, month), currency and importance. The MetaTrader 5 built-in calendar data can be accessed from MQL5 applications.

Completely revised built-in Economic Calendar

The latest build features the new application type — MQL5 Services. These apps enable the creation of custom price feeds for the terminal and implementation of price delivery from external systems in real time, just like it is implemented on brokers' trade servers.

A service template can be created using the MQL5 Wizard. Similarly to scripts, services have one entry point OnStart, at which you can implement an endless data receiving and handling cycle using network functions. Unlike trading robots and indicators, services are not linked to a specific chart. Such applications run in the background and are launched automatically when the user opens the platform.

MQL5 Services

An interactive training program for beginners has been added to the platform. It features over 100 smart tips with built-in links, which enable quick navigation to the relevant interface element, such as a specific menu command or a trading dialog. Tips only appear for the actions which the user has never performed in the platform. The training progress bar is seamlessly displayed on the toolbar and is increased whenever an appropriate action is performed.

Interactive training program for beginners

Algo traders and analysts will appreciate the R package integration. The new API enables request of MetaTrader 5 terminal data through applications using the R language. Developers can use the analytical package and retrieve large amounts of historical data from MetaTrader 5, without resorting to other data importing and exporting tools.
