MetaQuotes Certification: "Test your mastery of everyday activities"

This year we have introduced a new service — certification of specialists working with MetaTrader 5. Certification can be passed in three areas: Administrator (for platform administrators), Manager (for those working with clients) and Dealer (for dealers and risk managers).

The certification has two stages. First, candidates take the online test consisting of 80 questions. Here they need to choose the right answer from several options. The passing score is 70%. The candidates have two free attempts. The second stage is a video interview, during which a MetaQuotes employee tests the candidate's knowledge verbally. This usually takes about 30 minutes. The second stage costs USD 300. Upon successful completion of both stages, each participant receives an official personalized certificate from MetaQuotes.

Exinity group of companies has recently ordered certification for its employees. The group includes two global retail brokers FXTM and Alpari serving over three million clients in 180 countries. Newly certified Exinity specialists have shared their experience, including the preparation stage, the challenges and the benefits.


Alexander Anokhin, Head of Global TPA:

Exinity pays much attention to the smooth operation of its clients' trading platforms, so we decided not to miss this unique opportunity to test our knowledge.

I prepared for the certification after work. In total, it took two weeks. The MetaTrader 5 built-in help includes all the necessary information. I spent a lot of time installing and configuring all the components on test computers. Besides, I had to tinker with recovery tests.

The online test turned out to be a more difficult stage for me. But in the end we did it, which means we meet our company goals quite well. I boosted my skills and learned new techniques to use in my work. In particular, I learned much about protection against DDoS attacks and experienced all the advantages of the auto switching mode on test computers.

I recommend the certification to all my colleagues — it allows testing the mastery of everyday activities.


Anton Prikhodko, Trading Platforms Operations — Administration Team Leader:

Now I think that it is possible to pass the certification for MetaTrader 5 even without preparation. We have been using MetaTrader for a long time, so the certification is not the biggest challenge. The interview seemed a little more difficult, however.

I prepared for the certification for about a week using the built-in documentation — it contains the answers to almost all questions. Basically, I refreshed what I already knew, while I gained gaining some new information along the way. If you want to comprehensively refresh your knowledge, the certification definitely helps.


Mr Roman Kovalenko, Head of Trading Platforms Integration:

Our company views certification as an opportunity to test and formalize the skills of working with the platform. Furthermore, the official confirmation of the employees' expertise can be beneficial.

I did not know what awaited me during the test, so I put much effort into preparation, studied unfamiliar topics and delved into all the nuances of calculations. I worked even harder while preparing for the interview since I had only two attempts. Eventually, not everything was useful but studying the documentation has provided me with a few ideas I currently apply in my work.

As a result, the interview part was easier as we talked more about my actual daily activities. The online test had some theoretical questions I had never encountered before.


All certification types are available in MetaQuotes' official App Store for brokers.

New MetaTrader 5 for Hedge Funds — fast and efficient infrastructure out of the box

MetaTrader 5 platform offers a turnkey solution for mutual funds, prop trading and investment companies right out of the box. Create a fund, configure payouts and commissions, add fund managers and open investor accounts directly from MetaTrader 5 Administrator.

All calculations related to share values, profitability and payouts are performed automatically in real time. Fund clients are able to monitor their investments and buy additional shares directly from the MetaTrader 5 client terminal like ordinary traders.

New MetaTrader 5 for Hedge Funds — fast and efficient infrastructure out of the box


MetaTrader 5 makes fund creation simple

Our platform saves start-up companies and brokers from the costs of deploying their own investment business infrastructure. MetaTrader 5 Administrator features all the necessary tools for arranging a fund and a prop company, including trading accounts, client groups, financial symbols and connection to exchanges.

Organizational and legal issues of a business startup remain the client's only concern. All the technical aspects are covered by the platform itself.

One terminal for trading all symbols — a fund manager's dream come true

MetaTrader 5 is able to connect to over 80 exchanges all over the world using gateways. They allow the passing of trade operations to external systems, while they also allow the transmission of quotes and news from them. Our gateways are easy to manage: control and re-structure your business, manage risks, generate reports, receive quotes and withdraw money.

Simply connect the required exchanges and popular liquidity providers, create and customize trading symbols and start trading. A unified system of accounting for trading operations allows a fund manager to control current risks and see all trading positions on one screen right in the client terminal.


Powerful environment for developing and testing algorithmic trading strategies

With MetaTrader 5, an investment company is able to compete with the world's most famous funds in terms of technology.

MQL5 language for developing trading strategies is tailored specifically for working on financial markets and provides algorithmic traders with the widest of opportunities:

  1. Math libraries — neural networks, solving differential equations, Fourier transform, numerical integration, optimization problems, fuzzy logic and much more.
  2. Network functions — data search, exchange and delivery within the network.
  3. Integration with Python — machine learning, analysis and statistics libraries.
  4. OpenCL support for parallel computing.
  5. DirectX functions for data visualization in 3D charts.
  6. Native handling of SQL databases.

Furthermore, your fund managing traders can optimize trading robots using the built-in strategy tester, which enables access to the MQL5 Cloud Network — a large-scale cloud network with tens of thousands of test agents which are able to solve optimization problems within an hour. Solving such problems on a regular computer normally takes months of computing time.

As a result, traders get a synergistic effect: all trading instruments are not only traded in one client terminal, but also all trading strategies are developed in one specialized language and tested in a multi-threaded multi-asset tester using the computing resources of several thousand computers from the MQL5 Cloud Network.

Powerful environment for developing and testing algorithmic trading strategies

There is no need for additional requests and other complications — all indicators are displayed on comprehensive charts.

Convenient trading terminals for working with funds

Automate your work flow: set up separate access for your employees and investors, monitor the work of your team members and generate performance reports. Adjust payouts based on rates, on commissions, on payment methods or on any other conditions.

MetaTrader 5 update build 2650: background chart loading and code profiler improvements

The recent MetaTrader 5 update delivers new functionality and further enhances user experience. The most noticeable changes are described below.

MetaTrader 5 update build 2650



Terminal: New Data Downloading Option

In order to save traffic, the platform downloads symbol price history only when the relevant data is requested, for example, when the price chart is opened or when testing is launched. However, waiting for data to download may not be convenient for actively used symbols.

Enable the new option "Preload chart data for open positions and orders", and the charts of the symbols for which you have open positions or pending orders, will be updated in the background mode. The relevant data will be immediately available for analysis whenever you open the symbol chart.



Code Profiler: New Features and Inlining Control

With the updated Profiler, trading robot developers can accurately determine the execution time of each MQL program section. Performance data can assist in creating efficient and fast-running solutions. In contrast to the previously used Profiler which significantly modified the program, the new version uses an unchanged executable code for profiling.

The Profiler now uses the Sampling method: MQL program execution is interrupted every millisecond to analyze which function part is being executed at that moment. The analysis reflects the share of each function in the total code execution time.

Performance metrics (in units and percentage):

  • Total CPU — how often the function was used.
  • Self CPU — how much processor time was utilized for the specific function execution. This variable is crucial in identifying MQL program bottlenecks.

Code Profiler: New Features

Another update concerns the function inlining during profiling. Inlining (adding a function code directly to its call site) enables program performance acceleration, but it makes function profiling difficult. Now, you can disable the inlining feature if you need a report on "pure" functions.

Code Profiler: Inlining Control


Tester: Improved Custom Settings

The update provides revised options for working with custom settings. For example, when the "Use custom settings" option is disabled, all other settings in the dialog are deactivated to avoid misleading interpretation.

Tester: Improved Custom Settings

Fixed calculation of custom commissions: now, commissions can be enabled by specifying the symbol name instead of the entire path. Also, the update features some minor bug fixes and interface improvements, including rearranged tabs and optimized table column width.

Giles Coghlan, Chief Currency Analyst, HYCM, commented: "With large price swings across the major indices, people want to drill down into the fundamentals for specific stocks. They are looking for the individual winners and losers in our COVID-19 impacted world. With renewed interest across several different sectors, it was only a natural step for us to give HYCM clients wider access to new individual stock opportunities.

One of the MetaTrader 5 platform benefits, is the ability to trade individual stocks alongside commodities and forex. The main advantage of the new platform over MetaTrader 4, is the Depth of Market (DOM) display, which allows all parties trading a security to view the full list of buy and sell orders, along with their sizes. This is why the MetaTrader 5 platform is an excellent way for us to offer FX symbols alongside the recently added stocks".

MetaTrader 5 build 2615: new properties of trading instruments and complex criterion in the Strategy Tester

MetaTrader 5 build 2615

MetaTrader 5 trading platform features improvements allowing traders to achieve better results:

  • additional fundamental data directly in the platform
  • search for the best combination of inputs using Complex Criterion max when optimizing EAs
  • arrange financial instruments by sector, industry and country
  • more efficient development of robots in the updated MetaEditor


Additional fundamental data for symbols

Now you can get extended data on any instrument from well-known financial portals and services. This will allow your trading decisions to be more educated and based on detailed data. Study the quotes history of Microsoft shares in Google Finance, get dozens of statistical parameters from Finviz, find out how traders are currently trading on the selected instrument, and so on. Now you can do all that directly in your terminal.

Additional fundamental data for symbols

We have done our best to provide additional fundamental data on the maximum number of instruments. However, this feature is not available in older platform versions. If you still utilize older platform versions, ask your broker to update the trading server.


New trading robot optimization criterion

Complex Criterion max is a complex parameter of trading robot inputs. When optimizing EAs, the maximum value of a single parameter (for example, profit) is not always the best option. The new option allows selection of the best passes with the best combination of parameters. For example, instead of the most profitable Expert Advisor, you can get an EA with moderate profit, reasonable drawdown and decent expectation. Thus, developers now have a built-in tool for creating balanced and stable robots.

New trading robot optimization criterion

The following parameters are available for complex optimization:

  • Number of trades
  • Drawdown
  • Recovery factor
  • Expected payoff
  • Sharpe ratio

After optimization, users receive the list of the best passes for all these parameters at once. The Result column shows an integral parameter, which makes it easier to find the best option. For ease of use, the values have different colors: weak combinations with values below 20 are highlighted in red, while strong ones (above 80) are shown in dark green.

After optimization, users receive the list of the best passes


Extended properties of trading instruments

It has become easier to work with symbols. Each instrument has additional parameters: economic sector, industry and country. These parameters can help you to quickly navigate through large unfamiliar markets with multiple symbols. For example, when working with a broker offering thousands and tens of thousands of financial instruments. The new function enables quick searching to establish to which industry a particular security belongs.

Extended properties of trading instruments

With the new parameters, you can manage the list of instruments in the Market Watch window. Add the list of German pharmaceutical companies, French automakers or British financial companies in a couple of clicks.

The Market Watch window


Changes in MetaEditor

We have revised the Intelligent code management functions, allowing faster code writing while minimizing errors. Now the tooltip shows the entire function signature rather than its name, making it possible to accurately define what exactly is included in the code. Case-insensitive options and entry options have been added to the tooltips for ease of use. The tooltip font and color highlighting scheme are now specified in the MetaEditor settings. This means users are able to customize the appearance of their workspace.

Renat Fatkhullin, CEO at MetaQuotes: “First, we’ve met Sumsub as potential clients on the hunt for a working product. For several years, we have had brokers request a compliance solution within MetaTrader. By the time we have met Sumsub, we had already tried dozens of other systems, but none of them suited us in terms of functionality and technical execution. Sumsub was far ahead of the competition. We saw it and thought it was an excellent opportunity for us to participate in what Sumsub does, hoping that our expertise will bring additional value to the project.”

DriveWealth offers MetaTrader 5 broker access to US Cash Equities

U.S. share trading is available directly in MetaTrader 5 via a sophisticated, server to server connection.

For connected brokers with a MetaTrader 5 server, direct integration to multiple brokerage APIs is no longer required. Instead, brokers can simply order the MetaTrader 5 Gateway for integration with dealers, such as DriveWealth, to perform trades on U.S. exchanges.

Server to server connection makes it possible to trade DriveWealth’s fractionalized U.S. equities. Now clients can place any order size, even for less than a full share. For example, it is possible to place an order for 1/2 share of AAPL or 1.2345 shares of AMZN.
