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

South Africa's top online stockbroker 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. 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 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."

Leather says 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."

FXTM offers MetaTrader traders Cryptocurrency CFDs: BTC/USD, ETH/USD, LTC/USD

Global award-winning forex broker, FXTM, now offers clients the opportunity to trade CFDs on Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin against the US dollar. The launch of this product coincides with a recent surge in demand for digital currencies.

"The implementation of Bitcoin's SegWit2x solution on the 1st August, designed to optimize data storage on the network and to boost the cryptocurrency's transaction capacity in the long term, was arguably the biggest driver of that month's rally," FXTM's Global Head of Currency Strategy and Market Research, Jameel Ahmad, comments on the broker's latest product offering. "Within four days of release, the number of Bitcoin Cash tokens in circulation totaled US$7.6bn, further igniting investor interest in both currencies. The result has been a significant increase in demand for cryptocurrency trading instruments. FXTM was well placed to meet this demand with the planned launch of our Cryptocurrency CFDs in September. This newest product is a reflection of our commitment to innovate and grow in line with the needs of our traders."

Jameel Ahmad, FXTM

Jameel Ahmad, FXTM’s Global Head of Currency Strategy and Market Research

"There is some debate over the sustainability of current cryptocurrency rallies. However, I think the early enthusiasm for this innovative asset is a reaction to one of the most interesting developments the financial markets have seen in years. Their volatility is often precipitated by knee-jerk reactions from regulators and market sentiment, but cryptocurrencies should become more stable when regulators and governments have figured out how to integrate them into the current financial system. A number of Central Banks, including the Bank of Russia, South African Reserve Bank, Belarus Central Bank and Sweden’s Riksbank have all signaled interest in cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. A consortium of Japanese Banks are reportedly developing a national digital currency that will be launched in time for the 2020 Olympics. Cryptocurrencies will eventually find a permanent niche in financial markets. As a broker dedicated to delivering exceptional customer service and market-leading products, FXTM is proud to be one of the first to embrace cryptocurrency trading instruments in the MetaTrader platforms."

MetaTrader 5 Trading Signals Redefined

A new version of the Signals service for the MetaTrader platforms has been launched on the website. The updated version features a new designed and a more convenient display of information. The old-fashioned table with a large number of figures was replaced by a lightweight tile view displaying a collection of the most popular signal parameters.

MetaTrader 5 Trading Signals Redefined

The trader behavior analysis has revealed that traders only pay attention to from 3 to 5 most important values during their primary selection of signals. 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 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.

Brokeree Solutions releases Bitcoin feed for MetaTrader 5 brokers

Brokeree Solutions has launched a portfolio of institutional solutions for MetaTrader 5, including the cryptocurrency feed (Bitcoin). In addition, the company has the following offers for brokers switching to the new platform:

  • MetaTrader 5 Liquidity Bridge with the ability to aggregate liquidity providers
  • PAMM plugin for arranging the investment management

Brokeree Solutions feeds help ​brokers​ ​​meet​ ​the​ ​requirements​ ​of​ ​the​ ​strictest​ regulators​ ​as​ ​they​ ​support connections​ ​to​ ​raw​ ​market​ data​ ​providers​ ​such​ ​as​ ​Bloomberg.

Andrey Kamyshanov, CEO of Brokeree Solutions

Andrey Kamyshanov, CEO of Brokeree Solutions

According to the top management of Brokeree Solutions, cryptocurrency markets are becoming increasingly popular among traders, while the rapidly growing demand for MetaTrader 5 makes it necessary for integrators to offer brokers a variety of applications for the platform. This is how the idea of developing the Brokeree Cryptocurrency Feed has been born. The feed is to stream Bitcoin data from cryptocurrency providers directly to the MetaTrader 5 platform.

"Since 2013 we’ve been working with cryptocurrency providers and supporting brokers in feed integration", says Andrey Kamyshanov, CEO of Brokeree Solutions. "During this time everyone witnessed a number of attacks, lawsuits, and shutdowns of crypto-exchanges: Mt.Gox, Cryptsy, Bitfinex, Bitstamp, BTC-e. Understandably, such cases combined with the unclear legal status of cryptocurrencies make people skeptical. Nonetheless, it’s evident that today’s blockchain technologies are continually improving, the numerous advantages are no secret to those in the know. Cryptocurrency markets are developing at an incredible pace and becoming increasingly popular among traders. Some of the financial companies are still skeptical about cryptocurrencies, but we believe that digital currency trading is already an essential part of financial markets. Our cryptocurrency feed for MetaTrader 5 will assist institutional customers in cryptocurrency market penetration and growth".

Leading MetaTrader 5 brokers launch cryptocurrency trading

Bitcoin trading gains popularity, and the impressive volatility of cryptocurrencies attracts more and more traders. To satisfy this trend, MetaTrader 5 brokers started to offer cryptocurrency trading to their clients. Last month, several leading market players have launched Bitcoin, Dashcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple trading through the MetaTrader 5 platform.

The rapidly growing and highly volatile cryptocurrency market is seen as a promising alternative to traditional trading instruments. Over the past 9 months, Bitcoin price has risen more than three times. The dynamics of Ethereum is even more impressive, which started with 8 USD at the beginning of the year and has reached the current price of 298 USD. Naturally, such dramatic price changes attract both Forex professionals and beginners.

"Cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology may be the future of payments, but MetaTrader 5 is already the future of trading platforms," says Jens Chrzanowski, Management Board Member of Admiral Markets. "The platform provides extensive features and is future-proofed for the coming years. Last, but not least, our Supreme Edition add-on package is also available for our new MetaTrader 5, boosting the platform with over 60 dynamic trading tools."

"Now, trading cryptocurrencies means keeping pace with the times. This opportunity has become available in MetaTrader 5, which is one of the most advanced and highly technological multi-asset trading platforms," comments Kirill Kirichenka, the RoboForex Product Manager. "Cryptocurrency trading is now available to our clients 24 hours a day, 5 days a week. The hype around cryptocurrencies is extremely high, because now it is the most volatile market, which gives traders a chance to earn high profits. Is it another dot-com inflated bubble or a new reality? The answer will become clear later, as soon as the cryptocurrency market is completely formed. In the meantime, the market is shaping up. However, no matter how the situation develops in the future, it is clear that the priceless technologies brought by cryptocurrencies will stay with us."

Alexander Kapustin, the head of Marketing in the BCS Forex Operations department, also commented the launch of new symbols, "The launch of Bitcoin trading on BCS Forex MetaTrader 5 accounts is more than just a desire to follow the trend. It is first of all the reaction to an overwhelming number of customer requests. Our specialists have chosen the most balanced and profitable conditions for BTCUSD and BTCEUR trading. Cryptocurrencies are new trading instruments, and now their movements can hardly be subject to technical and fundamental analysis. BCS Forex provides clients everything they need to successfully trade Bitcoin, while urging them to carefully follow proper risk management rules when trading cryptocurrencies."

Angus Walker, IC Markets Director

"We're extremely pleased to now be giving traders access to Bitcoin, Ethereum, Lite Coin, Dash Coin and Bitcoin Cash with flexible trading conditions," adds Angus Walker, IC Markets Director. "The Cryptocurrency market is unlike any other offered by IC Markets. Completely unregulated, incredibly volatile and driven primarily by the fear and greed of retail speculators. Over 2017 we have seen the market cap of many cryptos soar to record highs, and at the same time we've seen governments and regulators across the world beginning to embrace this digital currency. With this in mind it was an easy decision to add the largest and most popular cryptocurrencies to our growing multi-asset offering."

The migration of brokers to MetaTrader 5 is ongoing — JFD Brokers, Alfa-Forex, FreshForex, IGM Forex and USGFX have recently announced the launch of the platform with support for hedge accounts.

The number of brokers switching to MetaTrader 5 grows weekly — over 170 industry participants currently offer the flagship platform to their clients. This dynamic is also due to active growth of the B2B market around MetaTrader 5 — more and more integrators become interested in developing institutional solutions for the new platform satisfying brokers' needs.

"I`ve been using MetaQuotes trading platforms since the early start of my FX career", says Wasim Zayed, Deputy General Manager at IGM Forex Ltd. "It has always gained my trust as an ultimate trading platform a reputable broker can offer to the traders.

Other than utilizing EAs to trade forex, clients can apply the same EAs to other asset classes which the Singapore broker plans to introduce in the near future.

Phillip Futures explained that they have chosen this platform due to its popularity globally and ease of use.
