MetaQuotes Will Take Part in FX WORLD ISTANBUL

The representative of FX WORLD ISTANBUL organizers Ceylan Pirinçcioğlu underlined some important points: “In the world of FOREX, the global daily trading volume has reached 5.3 trillion dollars whereas the Turkish volume is 30 billion dollars, representing 0.6% of the global volume. Particularly to attract regional foreign investors to our country, a number of important changes must be considered in our regulation and taxation system. If we can attract foreign investors for FX, I am sure that they would also invest in Turkey.” 

Pirinçcioğlu has also highlighted the importance of detailed explanation of the "Leverage System" for the benefit of investors. The maximum leverage allowed in the country currently is set at 1:100 and this ratio indeed creates enormous opportunities as well as risks for investors.

MetaTrader AppStore Results for Q3 2013

Another quarter of the year has passed and we have decided to sum up its results for MetaTrader AppStore - the largest store of trading robots and technical indicators for MetaTrader platforms.

First of all, AppStore for MetaTrader 4 has been released in beta mode and the final version is to be launched soon. However, trading robot developers can already publish their MQL4 applications there. More than 200 programs have already passed the tests. They will be available for traders immediately after MetaTrader 4 Market is launched.

More than 500 developers have placed over 1 200 products in MetaTrader AppStore by the end of the reported quarter. This exceeds the previous quarter results by one third. The largest share among the published applications is occupied by trading robots (45% of the total number of products) and technical indicators (34%). AppStore visitors can also purchase panels, analyzers and various utilities to expand the possibilities of their trading platform.

MetaTrader Market: Range of Applications for MetaTrader 4/5

Along with the increase in the number of developers and products, the number of traders actively using the Market is also growing. The milestone of 150 000 downloads of trading robots and technical indicators has been reached in the third quarter. This number includes installations of free and commercial product versions since the launch of AppStore. The breakpoint of 100 000 downloads has also been passed just a little while ago - in the second quarter of this year.

MetaTrader Market: Downloads of customer indicators and robots for MetaTrader 4/5


The sales of MetaTrader AppStore commercial products maintain a high growth rate (increased by 33% comparing with the previous quarter) and steadily increase in proportion with the number of downloads. This can be explained with the influx of new visitors to the AppStore and growing number of resales to the current clients - over 36% of buyers have purchased two or more AppStore products (+2% comparing with Q2 2013).

The third quarter has not brought any significant changes to the structure of sales by product categories. Technical indicators are still the most popular products in quantitative terms (45% of total products bought). Trading robots run a close second (41%). Panels occupy the third place with 6%.

MetaTrader Market: Number of trading robots and indicators sold by category

In monetary terms, trading robots (Expert Advisors) leave all other product types far behind. This product category occupies 85% in MetaTrader AppStore's total turnover. Trading robots are followed by indicators (9%) and panels (5%).

MetaTrader AppStore TOP-10 Sellers

We have again prepared the list of TOP-10 Market sellers summarizing the results of Q3 2013. The list includes the best of 500 developers of trading robots and technical indicators with the highest sales volumes for the reported period.

TOP-10 MetaTrader AppStore sellers (Q3 2013):

  1. arnbober (Arnold Bobrinskiy) - new on the top list
  2. johnnypasado (Jeremy Scott)
  3. iTC (Gennadiy Stanilevych)
  4. PzTrading (Arturo Lopez Perez) - new on the top list
  5. cameuh (Camille Huot) - new on the top list
  6. DC2008 (Sergey Pavlov) - new on the top list
  7. figurelli (Rogerio Figurelli)
  8. mttruc (Mai Thanh Truc) - new on the top list
  9. song_song (Jinsong Zhang) - new on the top list

For Q3 2013, the rating has changed significantly. First, we have a new leader - the newcomer arnbober. He has provided two products for sale - trading robots of Bobra series. Both of them enjoy popularity and have good sales volumes. Second, our top list has as many as seven newcomers. They have entered the list while selling various products: trading robots, technical indicators, analyzers and utilities. For example, a seller DC2008 sells only Analyzers.

The total sales of the TOP-10 sellers have comprised 39% of the overall amount of programs sold in Q3 2013. This is 4% less than in Q2 which can be explained by the growing number of sellers and sold Market applications. Our list of top sellers may change further after AppStore for MetaTrader 4 is officially launched. We will certainly follow up on this.

Prepare your MQL4/MQL5 applications for MetaTrader 4/5 and sell them on the multi-million market.

Trading Signals Statistics Expanded on Website

We have implemented a number of changes to Signals statistics to simplify evaluation of results. Now, you can quickly assess the trading activity of a selected signal, as the informative value of the charts has been considerably improved.

First, Growth and Balance charts now feature the vertical line dividing them in two parts - the time intervals before and after connecting the signal to the monitoring. Thus, it is possible to trace the point, at which the signal has been connected to the monitoring, and examine the differences in trading activity between these time intervals.

Second, blue and green parts of Growth and Balance charts are now interchanging at each non-trading operation (depositing or withdrawing the funds from the account). The more such interchanges you can see, the more non-trading operations have been detected on the account. View the signal's history to determine the type of each non-trading operation (depositing or withdrawal).

Third, Risks tab has been implemented. It consists of MFE (Maximum Favorable Excursion - maximum profit that could have been fixed before closing the trade) and MAE (Maximum Adverse Excursion - maximum loss detected during the trade) distribution dot diagrams. Each deal has its own potential profit (MFE) and potential loss (MAE) values displayed on the appropriate diagrams. Besides, these diagrams also display best and worst trades, maximum consecutive wins and losses, as well as maximal consecutive profit and loss.

Fourth, best and worst trading series can now also be seen on Growth and Balance charts. Just hover your mouse cursor over the necessary parameters in the table below.

With the extended statistics, traders can quickly see the results of signal's trading activity and assess their risks. This can be useful both for potential Subscribers and those who want to enable private monitoring of their accounts. Open the description of any signal on the website and try the extended statistics right now!
