Akamai Technologies provides MetaTrader 5 brokers with extra protection against DDoS attacks

We have added the functionality of using third-party Anti-DDoS services. The new Anti DDoS Proxy Server component, allows brokers to shift the burden of blocking unwanted connections, to a third-party vendor's server network.

When using an Anti DDoS Proxy Server, all clients are connected to the provider's public access points, instead of being connected directly to the access servers. Unwanted connections are sorted out in the provider's own network of servers, while legitimate connections from real clients, are forwarded to the access servers. The broker's infrastructure is practically not affected.

Josh Shaul, Vice President of Web Security, Akamai Technologies

Our partner, Akamai Technologies, is one of the world's largest infrastructure companies, offering a portfolio of cloud security solutions. The provider's massively distributed platform, is unparalleled in scale, with over 200,000 servers across 130 countries, thus providing customers with a superior performance and with a superior threat protection.

“By leveraging Akamai’s massive global network as a defensive shield, MetaTrader 5 will now be able to immediately bolster the protection of its clients from DDoS attacks", says Mr Josh Shaul, Vice President of Web Security, Akamai Technologies. "Our tools allow stopping attackers long before they are able to reach the MetaTrader 5 systems or clients”.

Major update of the MetaTrader 5 Build 1730: Synthetic Instruments, Shared Projects and MQL5 Cloud Protector

MetaTrader 5 is developing rapidly. Upon traders' requests, and in an effort to further improve our product, we have added a number of new tools and services to the platform. No such innovations will ever be implemented into MetaTrader 4. Moreover, this is only the first step in the MetaQuotes Software's new large-scale campaign, aiming in expanding the functionality of MetaTrader 5 for traders.

The new release features an ability to create synthetic financial instruments. Activation of this feature requires setting the formula for calculating quotes to be based on one or more available instruments. The platform will generate its minute ticks. All subsequent quotes will be built automatically in real time.

How it works:

  1. You create a synthetic instrument and set the formula for price calculation.
  2. The platform generates a minute history of the synthetic tool for the last two months. It is calculated based on one-minute bars of instruments used in its formula.
  3. The prices of symbols used in the calculation are verified every 10 seconds. If at least one of them has changed, the price of the synthetic symbol is calculated and a new tick is generated.
  4. All new bars (current and subsequent ones) of the synthetic instrument are created based on generated ticks.

Create in MetaTrader 5 your own synthetic symbols based on existing currencies, stocks or cryptocurrencies

Full-fledged projects simplify the application development for algorithmic trading and constitute another important feature of the build. Instead of the main MQ5 program file, a separate MQPROJ file is used as a project. It stores program settings, compilation parameters and information about all used files.

A separate tab in the Navigator is provided for work convenience within the project. All used files are arranged into various categories:

  • Headers — adding header files.
  • Resources — images, sounds and other MQL5 programs used in the project as resources.
  • Sources — MQ5 files with a source code.
  • Settings and Files — adding other files, such as set files for testing and chart templates.

Develop robots in conjunction with other traders using Shared Projects in MetaTrader 5

The new build makes it more convenient to develop robots with other traders. The Shared Projects section provides the ability for developing trade applications in teams. A project developed under Shared Porjects is automatically added to the online MQL5 Storage. In the project properties, you can grant permissions to other MQL5.community members and set the common parameters for the group:

  • Private project
  • Free to join project
  • Join by request project

The new MQL5 Cloud Protector mechanism provides an additional layer of protection for trading robots. This protection is similar to the option used in MetaTrader Market, where EX5 product files are additionally compiled to native code. Now, this feature is available to all developers. Protector-backed files can be executed on any computer, similar to common executable applications. To enable protection, execute the following command in MetaEditor: Tools — MQL5 Cloud Protector.

Use MQL5 Cloud Protector to protect your trading robots

Explore 10 reasons to integrate the Calendar

Monitoring of macroeconomic events is available for free in 7 languages with no ads. However, this is not the only reason our calendar will attract your audience — you have another 10 extra reasons to add it in your website:

1.Constant development

We have expanded the economic calendar geographically by adding the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Switzerland on top of the United States, Japan and the European Union. China, Sweden, New Zealand, Mexico and Singapore will be available soon.

When a country is added, all economic indices that have a significant impact on the national currency in the calendar are included. Descriptions are professionally translated into 7 languages. This makes our solution different from many others which lack updating since their initial development.

2. Full description of events with forecasts and archived data

One of the key distinguishing features of the MetaQuotes calendar is data completeness. Each indicator has a separate page with a detailed description along with complete data on the event, including its influence on a particular currency. The description also includes a reference to the source, dates of the previous/next releases of the event, as well as its archived values: actual and forecast. For analysis clarity, the entire dynamics distribution is presented in the chart.

Full descriptions of events with forecasts and archived data in the economic data from MetaQuotes

3. It is free

The development of a professional economic calendar is a complex task which requires considerable time and human resources. Due to the intensive development resources, some companies distribute such products on a commercial basis. Fortunately, this is not the case with our solution — we allow our customers to set it up for free.

4. No ads

Some financial resources offer their calendars for free, but with built-in advertising. The professional calendar from MetaQuotes offers no ads and has no plans to introduce them in the future.

5. Full translation into 7 languages

All data in our calendar, including event descriptions, are fully translated into English, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese and German. This allows traders from different countries to use the economic calendar in their native language. The complete translation favorably distinguishes our calendar from many other similar solutions which declare support for 10-15 languages. In reality, only interface elements are translated, while event names and descriptions remain in English.

The calendar from MetaQuotes is fully translated into 7 languages: English, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese and German

On top of the above, our solution accommodates a nice bonus. The widget adjusts to the browser's language and shows your website visitors the calendar in their native language. All this happens automatically without the need for any additional settings.

6. Traders remain in your website

Leading financial data providers feature their own economic calendars which can only be used in their own websites. Our calendar incorporates a convenient widget that can be easily embedded to your website. Traders will no longer have to browse through third-party websites searching for relevant information. Also, the service allows you to attract new website visitors.

7. Events from primary sources

Our calendar receives news first-hand with no delays. No intermediary websites are used. Each event description has a link to the source. This operation mode is difficult to be implemented, but it guarantees complete reliability and accuracy of the collected data.

The MetaQuotes calendar receives news first-hand with no delays

8. Time zone selection

The MetaQuotes calendar publishes events for countries located in different time zones: United States, United Kingdom, Japan and Australia among others. Important events tracking is maintained via local time adaptation. Manual adaptation of time zones is also possible. This feature provides your visitors with protection against missing news releases.

The MetaQuotes calendar allows changing the time zone manually

9. Calendar auto update

Our calendar is updated automatically immediately after a new event appears in the source. This is different from free versions of some other calendars which need to be updated manually. Our service relieves traders from the necessity of constantly re-loading the page, while it avoids the related negative feedback and an excessive load in the website.

10. Easy installation

The calendar can be set up in just a few clicks. Specify the desired calendar width/height and the default period (the current day or week) here, and you are ready to go. The remaining parameters are adjusted automatically. Simply copy the generated code and paste it in your web page.

Provide your website visitors with a ready-to-use tool for monitoring important macroeconomic events. It is free, it has no ads and it is translated into 7 languages!

MetaTrader 5 in South Africa: GT247.com launches the multi-asset platform

South Africa's top online stockbroker GT247.com has replaced its ageing legacy trading platforms with MetaTrader 5. The company's top management believe that MetaTrader 5 will enable them to remain in the sophisticated trading space, whilst offering their existing clients and new traders a world class functionality-rich trading platform.

GT247.com launched the first version of their own platform back in 2001. The company was the lowest cost online retail broker for traders and the pioneer of CFD trading in the region, allowing South African traders the ability to trade international markets in local currency. However, over the years the company realized that the legacy trading platform started falling behind the times:

"We struggled to keep up with the features and benefits offered by other trading platforms and as such clients looked further afield for brokers with a more sophisticated system," says GT247.com chief of trading, Bradley Leather. "Our old platform simply didn't offer enough. Switching to MetaTrader 5 will now allow us to compete on a level playing field."

Bradley Leather, GT247.com Chief of Trading

Bradley Leather, GT247.com Chief of Trading

Leather says GT24.com will benefit greatly from the platform's seamless integration, rich functionality and mobile capabilities.

"Previously, we had different platforms for CFD and spread trading, as well as different portals for client service, admin and technical support. MetaTrader 5 combines all of these platforms and portals into one. Our old platforms were easy to use, but they were very limited in functionality. They were good for traders who simply wanted to buy and sell, or look at charts, but they didn't appeal to traders who wanted to plug in algorithmic strategies. Now, MetaTrader 5 is able to satisfy all categories of traders."

A universal measure of a signal's success is the number of subscribers, as well as its profitability, minimal risk and stability. The MetaTrader 5 Signals showcase now features these important metrics, while detailed statistics are available on the signal description page. Now, traders can easily choose signals from the showcase, and then thoroughly analyze and compare selected signals using detailed statistics.

Detailed statistics of trading signals

A new reliability parameter has been added to the MetaTrader 5 Signals Showcase for a quick evaluation of a signal. This aggregate value measures multiple parameters to simplify the comparison of signals in terms of investment reliability.

New reliability parameter

For example, in case of a large load on the deposit (Max Load %) or a huge increase in the monthly growth, this value is reduced. Conversely, a moderate monthly growth and deposit load normally reduce investment risks, so reliability is higher in this case.

Thus, the new showcase of MetaTrader 5 Signals enables a much faster preliminary search and analysis of signal providers. The new design, as well as the filtering and sorting options allow you to quickly find the desired signal among thousands of available offers. In addition, we have preserved the previous table view, so conservative traders can switch to their preferred format.

The new showcase of MetaTrader Signals

The updated MetaTrader 5 Signals showcase is already available on MQL5.com and it will be added to trading platforms after a behavioral study and the analysis of traders' feedback.

We invite everyone to test the re-designed Signals service on the website, from where you can also subscribe to a selected signal.
