Cryptocurrency liquidity for MetaTrader 5 from B2Broker

B2Broker announced the launch of cryptocurrency liquidity, a new service for MetaTrader 5 brokers. This service provides institutional clients a convenient method for trading Bitcoin, Ethereum and four other popular digital assets.

The cryptocurrency liquidity service features two major benefits for MetaTrader 5 brokers:

  1. Brokers will be able to stand out in a crowd of competitors. The demand for cryptocurrencies is many times greater than the supply, and it keeps growing, while there are very few brokers who can offer full featured cryptocurrency trading to their clients.
  2. Brokers will benefit from commission and trading volumes: low volatility on traditional financial markets stimulates traders' interest in cryptocurrency markets, where intraday fluctuations can be over 10%. B2Broker representatives believe that now the cryptocurrency is not only a payment means on the dark side of the Internet, but is also a saving method and an attractive speculative instrument with large trading volumes.

Cryptocurrency liquidity from B2Broker features:

  • 6 popular cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, Peercoin and Namecoin
  • aggregated liquidity from five exchanges with largest capitalization according to Coinmarketcap; this liquidity enables buying and selling digital assets at any time and in any volume
  • margin trading with leverage of 1:3, no swaps and rollover fees
  • commission from 0.2%, payable once at the moment of transaction execution

B2Broker offers MetaTrader 5 brokers two options for connecting to the cryptocurrency liquidity: beginners can start with a WhiteLabel on standard terms, while existing brokers can connect via the FIXAPI 4.4 protocol.

"The cryptocurrency liquidity service for MetaTrader 5 is a promising and easy-to-implement solution for brokers, who want to fill a new niche in the market," says Artur Azizov, the CEO of B2Broker. "Cryptocurrencies represent a new economy, and I am sure that no less than one percent of the world currency volumes will flow into crypto-economy, which means at least 30-times growth as compared to the current $100 billion cap!"

Among them are the international Forex and CFD broker IFCMarkets, Brazilian ModalMais, STP broker Caveo Brokerage from Kuwait and the Hong Kong-based STP Broker Perfekt Capital Limited.

"As a Kuwaiti company, our founders are traders with more than 10 years of experience", notes Hossam El Kashif, CEO of Caveo Brokerage commenting on switching to MetaTrader 5. "This reflected on our mission to make it easier to trade starting from our trading platform and moving to wide range of services.

We realized that now we can offer better technology with more trading instruments including futures and stocks beside the regular Forex trading conditions that the clients used to have in MetaTrader 4. MetaTrader 5 will provide traders with the ability to trade US stocks, Futures, ETFs, FOREX and CFDs.”

"The introduction of the widely demanded MetaTrader 5 hedging option has expanded opportunities for Forex traders bringing more traders to the platform", says Mallikarjun T. Patil, CEO of Perfekt Capital Limited. Along with other powerful platform tools like Depth of Market and standard timeframes, the hedging feature will give more confidence and flexibility in trading. Now, it is possible to have multiple positions per symbol, including opposite directed ones if the price moves against a trader".

Support for Windows XP/Windows 2003/Windows Vista to be discontinued after 01 October 2017

Windows XP was released 16 years ago, on 25th of October, 2001. It is now considered to be an outdated operating system. Microsoft stopped supporting this system three years ago, because potential hardware capabilities could no longer be realized on Windows XP due to technical limitations. The lifecycle support for Windows 2003 and Windows Vista also ended.

End of support means that Microsoft no longer provides security updates that can help protect your PC from harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. That is why:

The MetaTrader 4/5 platforms and all their components will no longer support Windows XP/Windows 2003/Windows Vista after 01 October 2017

Older versions of MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 will continue to work on these systems, but will not be able to receive updates after 01 October 2017. Also, installers will not run on these operating systems.

The minimum required operating system version for running MetaTrader 4/5 will be Windows 7. However, we strongly recommend using the 64-bit versions of Windows 10.

  • Bonus Automation is one of Plugit Apps' high-demand products that is now fully integrated with MetaTrader 5. A very scalable application allowing brokers to run different bonus campaigns and parallel promotions that suit different types of clients.

  • Dynamic Leverage is a very efficient risk tool, designed to mitigate risks by constantly monitoring each trader’s exposure and adjusting the leverage when a certain threshold is exceeded. A very crucial tool for brokers enabling them to control exposure on a per trader level.
