MetaTrader 5 features trading analytics and integrated payments. What's next?

The major update has brought two important changes significantly enhancing the MetaTrader 5 experience. The new section of advanced trading statistics can help improve results, while the built-in payment service can simplify account top-up. In addition, we have laid the foundation for additional changes in the appearance of MetaTrader 5. We will soon present an updated interface - the platform will retain its familiar appearance, while becoming more modern and efficient.

MetaTrader 5 features trading analytics and integrated payments

Powerful free trading analytics

This innovation will help traders of any level to increase efficiency - we have redesigned the statistics section and turned it into a powerful tool for analyzing trading histories. Both beginners and professionals will find everything they need to optimize their portfolio. Do not look for third-party services to control your trading results: now the necessary information is built into the platform and is available in one click.

Powerful free trading analytics

Available reports:

  • Summary - activity summary: account data, overall profit and loss, deposits and withdrawals, balance, growth and dividends graphs and others.
  • Profit/Lost — historical data on profitable and losing trades. The parameter is divided by types of trading (manual, copy and algorithmic). It can be analyzed in terms of deals, percentages or money by days, months and years.
  • Long/Short — report on Buy and Sell orders at specified time intervals.
  • Symbols — detailed analysis of trades by financial instruments. The ratio of the number of trades, comparison of different types of trades and historical data for individual symbols or entire groups.

Now the update is available only for the desktop version of the platform running Windows 10 or higher. In the next updates, we will add the aforementioned capability to the web terminal and mobile versions of MetaTrader 5. Simply update the platform to the latest version and access advanced analytics. This does not require any additional efforts or costs — the solution is built into the trading platform and is supplied free of charge.

Integrated payments — fast and secure

Now you can top up your account balance directly through the trading platform - there is no need to switch to third-party sites and go through additional authorizations.

Integrated payments — fast and secure

Why is this convenient?

  • Increased security — no need to store extra passwords and regularly enter payment details in third-party sites.
  • Usability — no need to switch to other resources and waste time.
  • Enhanced trading opportunities — deposit money to your account whenever you need.

You can top up your MetaTrader 5 trading accounts via bank transfer, credit card or payment systems. All payments and personal data are completely secure. We hope that the new service will make interaction with the trading platform more efficient.

For integrated payments to be available, your broker should support this service. Check the possibility of payments with broker representatives.

How deep links can help you understand audiences and increase conversion rates

Enhanced deep links in MetaTrader 5 can assist in spotting underperforming advertising campaigns and in redirecting your budget towards more effective ones. The impact of deep linking extends beyond advertising, positively influencing various business processes.

How deep links can help you understand audiences and increase conversion rates

Gain insights into your traffic sources and assess the campaign performance. With the new deep links, you can pinpoint exactly where a customer came from, be it an advertisement, an affiliate link, or another source. Determine the areas in which you need to optimize your customer engagement strategies and improve customer retention rates. By differentiating your link parameters, you can determine which images, promos, placements, or CTAs perform better than others. Based on this valuable information, you can improve onboarding processes, attract more clients, and increase demo-to-real conversion rates. By using the new parameters, for example, "account_type", you can forward the client to a real account opening form immediately after installing the application. This facilitates the customer's journey to live trading and increases the likelihood of successful conversion. Eliminate the need for the user to register on your website and you reduce the number of steps required to start trading, minimizing the risk of losing potential clients. Your traders will access all the required services straight within the app.

By providing the ability to utilize enhanced deep links, the MetaTrader 5 trading platform equips brokers with powerful tools to gain a deeper understanding of their clients and to optimize operational workflows. Unlike traditional deep links which offer limited data, the extended functionality supports new parameters, transforming deep links into a tool with boundless potential for insights and optimization.

Add tracking links to your ads and control the flow of traffic, which converts into app installations

How it works?

You can create a tracking link, enrich it with additional UTM parameters, and monitor the effectiveness of your advertising channels. Information about users who click on this link and install the application from the App Store or Google Play will be registered in the following databases:

  • In the client entry in MetaTrader 5 – in the Lead Source and Lead Campaign fields
  • In Finteza which is integrated with MetaTrader 5 – the enriched tracking data enables the relevant market research (end-to-end analytics, Retention, deposits and withdrawals in eCommerce, and others)

Tracking link example: utm_campaign=YourCampaignName&utm_source=TrafficSourceName&master_site_id=YourIDNumber&account_type=2

The link consists of several parts, which can be customized to your specific business needs:

  • is an app download link; in our example, it is a link to download the mobile terminal for iOS. This is a mandatory part and cannot be changed.
  • "server" is the name of the trade server to which the user will connect. Specify your server name instead of YourServerName – only your company will be displayed in the servers list for your traders.
  • "utm_source" is the traffic source where this link is placed. This can be a landing page, an affiliate site, a banner in an advertising network or on a third-party site, a button in an email, and so on. Enter the source instead of TrafficSourceName.
  • "master_site_id" is a unique tracker for your site in Finteza. This will enable the creation of end-to-end analytics.
  • "account_type" is the account type that the user will be offered to create during the first app launch: 1 for demo and 2 for real accounts. With this option, you can onboard clients directly in the application and know exactly the installation source. The real account registration form in MetaTrader 5 is customizable: You can request the required documents in accordance with your internal procedures.

Add tracking links to your ads and control the flow of traffic, which converts into app installations. With the new parameters, you can identify all your mobile users with pinpoint accuracy.

How MetaTrader VPS works

Fundamental trading principles require instant responses to significant market changes and outstanding reliability when performing trades. In other words, a trade must be executed precisely at the moment you need it. We have created MetaTrader VPS enabling every trader to create predictably robust technical conditions. The main purpose of this service is to ensure the flawless and uninterrupted operation of trading strategies.

How MetaTrader VPS works

MetaTrader VPS is different from ordinary virtual machines that can be rented for a website or backup hosting. This solution is only available for traders and thus it avoids all unnecessary resource-consuming features. It is a tailored solution to maximize usability and efficiency for algorithmic and social traders. For over two decades, MetaQuotes has been dedicated to advancing financial technologies. Our profound expertise, coupled with constant interactions with the direct users of our services, has enabled us to create a product that fits perfectly traders' needs. Thousands of active users stand as a testament to our successful efforts.

MetaTrader VPS provides a range of unique features that set it apart from ordinary virtual hosting solutions.

Low latency

The service provides a delay of less than 3 ms for 70% of brokers' trading servers. Furthermore, nearly one-fifth of all servers can be accessed in less than 1 ms. This means that, regardless of your location, you can considerably improve your performance compared to your home computer. This is the key service advantage — its cost will be quickly paid off due to better trade executions. Even if you perform just a few trades per month, you will save pips on each trade, ultimately fully covering the virtual server renting cost.

Reliable access points

To guarantee the best access to broker servers, we have located hosting points in reliable, certified data centers in New York, London, Amsterdam, Johannesburg, Hong Kong, Lagos, Sao Paulo, and Mumbai. Such broad geographic coverage ensures a stable connection to any company. Our partners provide maximum uptime, ensuring seamless and uninterrupted operation of your strategies 24/7. According to our agreement conditions, the mandatory hardware maintenance is only scheduled on weekends.

Computing power

Each user can access up to 16 GB of disk space, up to 3 GB of RAM, and several CPU physical cores. These resources are more than enough for the efficient simultaneous operation of several trading strategies. Unlike many general-purpose hosting providers, we offer the actual amount of resources and prevent overselling. You can rest assured that all these computing resources remain at your immediate disposal.

In MetaTrader 5 VPS, CPU cores are not loaded by infrastructure maintenance operations, which can slow down your robot's analytical functions. There are no delays between making a trading decision and sending a trading order to the server.

Technological approach

We have developed special lightweight platform versions for our VPS. To ensure maximum resources for Expert Advisor calculations, all functions not used for algorithmic and copy trading are disabled. The platform's graphics system, including the charts, has been virtualized, eliminating the need to use a video card or CPU power to display graphical elements. MetaTrader VPS allocates these resources exclusively for your tasks. It is impossible to implement a similar solution on third-party cloud hosting.

Full compatibility with the trading platform

MetaTrader VPS is specifically developed to seamlessly run our trading platform. This means that all components are 100% compatible, eliminating the need for any configuration or adjustments. Your robots and signal subscriptions can be migrated to the cloud with a single click, while product activations remain unaffected. Please note that when using a regular hosting service, you will need an additional copy of your product.

System security

We recognize that any financial information is important and sensitive for every trader, which is why we place special emphasis on ensuring data protection. MetaQuotes' internal policy safeguards your data from any third-party access. We guarantee that your account data and strategies cannot be accessed without your explicit content, regardless of the circumstances.

Flexible terms

Renting MetaTrader VPS for a month will cost USD 15. By utilizing it for trading instead of relying on a home PC or regular hosting, this cost can potentially be paid off in just a few trades. For those who wish to rent the virtual platform for a longer period, we offer special discounts of up to 15%.

Whether you are already a MetaTrader VPS user or are considering connecting to the service, we recommend consulting with your broker. You may qualify for free VPS access through the Sponsored VPS program which we have recently launched among brokers and with which companies can offer free hosting to traders under certain conditions. Inquire with your broker whether they are participating in the program and request additional information about how you can access MetaTrader VPS for free.

Why you need MetaTrader VPS for automated trading?

Many automated traders run their Expert Advisors and trading signal subscription on a regular personal computer. While successful trading can also be possible on home PCs, relying on such solutions comes with several drawbacks which may hinder the achievement of better results. To mitigate risks and to ensure the best performance, professional traders often turn to reliable specialized solutions for their robots. By doing so, they try to avoid certain dangers which can be imposed by trading from one's own hardware. Here are some of them:

Why you need MetaTrader VPS for automated trading

High latency

In the fast-paced world of trading, not just seconds influence the result. A second is an eternity during which things can change dramatically. Every thousandth of a second can make a significant difference. Home internet connection does not always provide stable and fast network access. If you add to this a remote geographic location, then you lose one of the main trading robot advantages – the lightning-fast response. Even the most robust and verified algorithms can perform worse due to network delays.

MetaTrader VPS ensures optimal access to brokers' servers, guaranteeing a delay of no more than 5 milliseconds to 80% of trading servers.

Weak hardware

Home computers may lack the processing power required for resource-intensive trading algorithms. This results in slower operation and subpar performance of your Expert Advisors. In addition, it is not always possible to allocate a separate machine solely for a robot. So, it has to share resources with browsers, instant messengers, and other applications.

On a MetaTrader 5 VPS server, you can use up to 16 GB of disk space, up to 3 GB of RAM, and several CPU physical cores without overselling. These resources are sufficient for the correct operation of any strategy.

Technical failures

Home computers are dependent on external factors like weather, utilities, and other circumstances. While we can prepare for power outages by, for example, purchasing a high-quality UPS which can extend your robot operation for at least a few hours, there are other problems which are hard to prevent. For example, what can we do if the motherboard burns out or if the hardware fails due to an unprecedented heat wave?

MetaTrader VPS hardware is hosted in advanced data centers ensuring exceptional reliability, robust redundancy measures, and high maintenance standards. On such servers, your strategies are shielded from extreme conditions, including heat waves, floods, and even hurricanes. We guarantee 99.99% uptime including scheduled maintenance.

Unreliable hosting

A virtual server does not always guarantee trouble-free operation. Even if you understand the risks and decide to move your strategies to a virtual machine, finding a trustworthy hosting company can be a challenging task. This is especially true for non-specialized technical solutions, such as popular shared hosting servers. The biggest difficulty is in setting up the trading environment and launching the platform on a virtual machine. Furthermore, some hosting providers fail to meet performance and uptime commitments, further complicating the search for reliable services.

MetaTrader VPS is a specialized solution created by MetaQuotes specifically for social and algorithmic trading. It is natively integrated into the trading platform and does not require additional settings or technical expertise: strategies can be migrated to the virtual server with a few mouse clicks. MetaTrader VPS is already used by tens of thousands of traders, so we have gathered sufficient feedback to offer optimal automated trading conditions. Test MetaTrader VPS and evaluate its benefits for yourself.

With the increasing number of brokers joining the Sponsored VPS program, we recommend checking the availability of this option with your broker before buying — you might be eligible for gaining access to MetaTrader VPS for free.

As the next step, we have introduced the Sponsored VPS program for automated trading, which enables brokerage companies to provide free hosting to their clients under predefined conditions.

Even if your broker does not yet know about this program, your inquiry could spark interest, leading the company to consider offering the option to its clients. So, we recommend that you reach out to your broker and inquire about the availability of this service.

Typically, free VPS is provided based on certain conditions set by the brokerage company in accordance with their objectives. Find out if these conditions align with your trading need – they can involve some simple action which you perform regularly. By meeting the broker's conditions, you can gain access to a powerful automated trading tool which can assist in improving your trading results.

MetaTrader VPS is a specialized, natively integrated solution for professional social and algorithmic trading, which does not require additional activations or configurations.

8 reasons to choose MetaTrader VPS over non-specialized hosting solutions

Almost everyone who is engaged in social or algorithmic trading sooner or later recognizes the need to rent hosting for their robots or subscriptions. Maintaining stable and uninterrupted hardware operation at home while ensuring minimal delays to the broker's servers can be quite a challenging task. Numerous factors can affect trading results, including power outages, internet provider issues, and technical problems. Even a one-hour power cut can be crucial due to potentially missed trading opportunities. There are other unforeseen events, such as power supply failure or accidental damage to your laptop, which can occur at any time.

8 reasons to choose MetaTrader VPS over non-specialized hosting solutions

These problems are not uncommon. For example, in 2022, broadband outages experienced by remote workers caused the UK economy to lose around GBP 1.3 billion ( report). Professional traders, who value control over all trading-related processes, prefer not to leave their valuable strategies to chance. Measures like uninterruptible power supplies or connection to multiple internet providers offer only partial solutions. That is where renting a reliable machine for your robots and signals becomes the reasonable choice. Physical servers can be costly, and thus a virtual private server (VPS) is the logical and cost-effective solution.

However, in practice, hosting solutions often fail to work properly due to various reasons, and many traders have already had negative experiences with general-purpose virtual servers.

Here are the most common problems with conventional dedicated servers:

Low performance. Trading strategies require adequate technical resources, including CPU, RAM, and disk space. Smaller hosting providers often offer limited-performance machines which can let you down at the most critical moment. Another common problem is overselling, where companies sell more resources than they actually have. Assuming that subscribers do not use the maximum resources all the time, such providers rely on the consumption-based floating load distribution across the cluster. However, if all users simultaneously start using the maximum resources, the system can fail.

Poor location of access points. It is not always possible to find a reliable and high-performance VPS in close proximity to your broker's trading servers. Trading from home can sometimes be more efficient than using a virtual server located on a different continent.

High price. High-quality solutions meeting all your requirements can be expensive. While companies can offer low-cost basic rates of USD 2-3 per month to attract customers, a powerful machine may cost up to 10 times more.

Difficult setup. If your VPS is not designed specifically for trading, setting up the server, establishing a connection, installing the trading platform, and launching your Expert Advisors can be time-consuming. Even if you follow all steps from multi-page instructions, the desired result is not guaranteed. This issue is closely related to the next problem.

Inadequate technical support. When problems arise, it may take a long time to solve them. In a fast-paced trading environment, where every minute counts, waiting for days to receive a response is totally unacceptable.

Insufficient security. Traders value the confidentiality and safety of their trading algorithms. However, some VPS services fail to provide any guarantees regarding personal data security.

Low uptime. Every hosting provider asserts the reliability of their services. However, even the most reliable global providers always include additional information in their agreements to acknowledge the possibility of downtime, for example, during service maintenance. 100% uptime is unrealistic, but it is important that downtimes do not happen too often.

Provider shutdowns. While this is not the most common case, smaller providers sometimes cease operation for various reasons. Even though hosting users can be notified of such changes in advance, cease of operation means that the trader will have to reconfigure the entire trading environment from scratch.

MetaQuotes offers a solution for those who are considering renting their first cloud hosting server, as well as for those who have been disappointed with previous solutions. If you are looking for a reliable VPS which overcomes the aforementioned disadvantages, consider MetaTrader VPS — a specialized hosting solution for MetaTrader platform users. Thousands of traders already use the MetaTrader VPS every day.

In particular, the new component will affect the Market, Signals and VPS sections.

5. The updated web terminal provides expanded trading history and contract specifications. The application interface has become more user-friendly. With an expanded list of localizations, the web terminal is now available in 24 languages.

When MetaTrader 5 Web Terminal is indispensable — three examples

MetaTrader 5 is a versatile trading platform which offers several convenient ways to access its features. For those who work from home or an office, it provides a desktop version. The mobile app is ideal for those who are always on the go. However, there is another solution which efficiently combines the features of the desktop platform with the convenience of the mobile app. This is the recently redesigned Web Terminal.

When MetaTrader 5 Web Terminal is indispensable — three examples

You can launch the Web Terminal in any browser and log in using your account credentials. With just a few clicks, you can turn your laptop, phone or desktop PC into a modern and technologically advanced trading tool, without having to install additional software. The MetaTrader 5 Web Terminal runs smoothly and reliably on any phone, operating system and web browser.

Here are three scenarios where the Web Terminal is indispensable:

1. Technical issues with your phone or tablet

Mobile devices are prone to technical issues, such as overheating, freezing or running out of battery. If you are used to trading from a mobile app but cannot access it for any reason, the Web Terminal can be an excellent option. It provides a familiar interface, and thus you will not have to learn how to use the desktop terminal. If you need urgent access to your trading account while your phone is out of battery, run the web version on another device and work in a comfortable environment.

2. Working from someone else's device

Access to the trading platform can be required in different situations, whether you expect them or not. For example, you may only have access to your office computer on which you are not allowed to run any third-party software. Sometimes you can use your friend's PC or a public computer, where the desktop platform is not installed. You may have no time to download and install a desktop application on the available device if you need urgent access to your trading account.

The Web Terminal is the best solution in all such cases. Open a web browser and access your MetaTrader 5 account from any available device. The Web Terminal is safe to use in any situation since all transmitted information is securely encrypted. However, you should always keep all your logins and passwords safe.

3. Limited storage space

Not having enough storage on your mobile device can be a problem. Do you often have to delete old photos in order to keep new ones or to remove old apps in order to install those you need? MetaTrader 5 applications are very efficient in terms of device storage usage, but in some cases, every extra megabyte counts. The Web Terminal can be a good choice if you often struggle to free up storage space on your smartphone. You will have access to all the MetaTrader trading platform features, while freeing up storage space for other apps.

MetaTrader 5 Web is the perfect choice for those who need an efficient and fully-fledged financial market trading solution. Access the platform from any device, using any operating system and web browser, without extra software installations. The Web Terminal can be accessed wherever there is an Internet connection.

Whether you have technical issues with your mobile device, cannot install the trading software or need more storage space, the MetaTrader 5 Web version provides a reliable and convenient alternative. Run the Web Terminal and turn your device into a powerful high-tech trading tool.
