African Broker Precise FX switches to MetaTrader 5

Traders of Ghana and other West African countries are now able to trade using the innovative platform developed by MetaQuotes. One of the largest Ghanaian brokers, Precise FX, is the first in the region to switch to MetaTrader 5, offering its customers the full package of services. The African traders have not only received the desktop platform supporting hedging, but also received the mobile platform versions, for iOS and Android, alongside copy trading with signal subscription and access to ready-made robots for algorithmic trading. Currencies, commodities, stocks, metals and energy — hundreds of financial instruments are now available on a single platform.

"Opting for the MetaTrader 5 platform was mainly focused in enhancing the trading experience of all clients who trade on the Precise FX platform", says Ms Matilda Danquah, Head of Marketing and Strategy at Precise FX. "The Clients are able to transfer funds between trading accounts right on the trading platform and can access the built-in economic calendar along with numerous tools for technical and fundamental analysis. We believe that equipping clients with the right trading support is a key requirement in making their trading experience successful. Although MetaTrader 5 is an upgraded version of MetaTrader 4, the user interface is very similar and users will easily familiarize themselves with the new platform. The replacement of MetaTrader 4 with MetaTrader 5 platform is a strategic move that will enable the company to remain as the preferred broker across the West African region".

"Online forex trading has been one of the most fulfilling investment ventures I have been involved in", says Mr Michael Lamptey, the independent columnist of Modern Ghana website commenting on MetaTrader 5 perspectives in the region. "In our part of the world (West Africa), getting online now has become very easy, with the invasion of smartphones and internet. MetaTrader 5 is entering the West African market at the right time. The number of mobile users is growing and the product is bound to find its audience. A trader's level of experience is not important — those having no time to go through the different forms of analysis can also trade automatically with the use of robots and trading signals. So why just download social media platform on your phone, when you can trade and earn money using the MetaTrader 5 mobile platform? This is what we need in Africa — a platform that can provide financial freedom".

MetaTrader 5 Marketplace is expanding — the number of integrators has doubled

The growing brokers' demand for MetaTrader 5 fuels the interest of vendors. The trend is evident — 3 months after launching the Marketplace, the number of its participants has doubled. Among the most notable integrators who joined the project are Dynamic Works, Fortex Inc, Brokeree Solutions and B2Broker.

— The marketplace significantly facilitates the business of a broker who receives not only the trading platform, but also quick access to a plethora of related solutions in a single place, — says Elina Bagautdinova, CCO of Brokeree Solutions. — We believe that this service will soon become the main outlet for companies in the industry due to its simplicity and transparency. For Brokeree Solutions, which specializes directly in software development and integration with MetaTrader 5, such a store allows focusing on the main thing — development of product series. Brokers already use a number of products from Brokeree Solutions: for example, Web API or Extended Agent Commissions — a plug-in for a complex agents reward system. We do our best to thoroughly cover the needs of our clients and develop new applications according to their requirements, therefore our MetaTrader 5-related series will definitely grow — four new products are ready to be released in May.

FINAM offers MetaTrader 5 with single account support: one terminal, 4 exchanges and 10,000 instruments

The well-known Russian broker has connected the new platform to its single trading account. Now, the broker's clients can trade MOEX, SPB Exchange, NYSE and Nasdaq instruments via MetaTrader 5.

This is a persuasive response to the popular comment of technology pessimists who claim that, "The platform is good, but you need to install a separate terminal for each market." Now, traders can buy and sell Nasdaq instruments, speculate on the MOEX futures section and trade S&P500 stocks on the St. Petersburg Stock Exchange from a single MetaTrader 5 account.

The single FINAM account supports multiple exchanges trading, and thus clients do not need to open separate accounts for each market. Available securities can be used as collateral to cover trades on the single account. Also, the broker offers a single rate on margin trading for all supported markets.

Dmitry Antsiferov, Head of Trading Systems Business-Support department

Akamai Technologies provides MetaTrader 5 brokers with extra protection against DDoS attacks

We have added the functionality of using third-party Anti-DDoS services. The new Anti DDoS Proxy Server component, allows brokers to shift the burden of blocking unwanted connections, to a third-party vendor's server network.

When using an Anti DDoS Proxy Server, all clients are connected to the provider's public access points, instead of being connected directly to the access servers. Unwanted connections are sorted out in the provider's own network of servers, while legitimate connections from real clients, are forwarded to the access servers. The broker's infrastructure is practically not affected.

Josh Shaul, Vice President of Web Security, Akamai Technologies

Our partner, Akamai Technologies, is one of the world's largest infrastructure companies, offering a portfolio of cloud security solutions. The provider's massively distributed platform, is unparalleled in scale, with over 200,000 servers across 130 countries, thus providing customers with a superior performance and with a superior threat protection.

Major update of the MetaTrader 5 Build 1730: Synthetic Instruments, Shared Projects and MQL5 Cloud Protector

MetaTrader 5 is developing rapidly. Upon traders' requests, and in an effort to further improve our product, we have added a number of new tools and services to the platform. No such innovations will ever be implemented into MetaTrader 4. Moreover, this is only the first step in the MetaQuotes Software's new large-scale campaign, aiming in expanding the functionality of MetaTrader 5 for traders.

The new release features an ability to create synthetic financial instruments. Activation of this feature requires setting the formula for calculating quotes to be based on one or more available instruments. The platform will generate its minute ticks. All subsequent quotes will be built automatically in real time.

How it works:

  1. You create a synthetic instrument and set the formula for price calculation.
  2. The platform generates a minute history of the synthetic tool for the last two months. It is calculated based on one-minute bars of instruments used in its formula.
  3. The prices of symbols used in the calculation are verified every 10 seconds. If at least one of them has changed, the price of the synthetic symbol is calculated and a new tick is generated.
  4. All new bars (current and subsequent ones) of the synthetic instrument are created based on generated ticks.

Create in MetaTrader 5 your own synthetic symbols based on existing currencies, stocks or cryptocurrencies

Full-fledged projects simplify the application development for algorithmic trading and constitute another important feature of the build. Instead of the main MQ5 program file, a separate MQPROJ file is used as a project. It stores program settings, compilation parameters and information about all used files.

A separate tab in the Navigator is provided for work convenience within the project. All used files are arranged into various categories:

  • Headers — adding header files.
  • Resources — images, sounds and other MQL5 programs used in the project as resources.
  • Sources — MQ5 files with a source code.
  • Settings and Files — adding other files, such as set files for testing and chart templates.

Develop robots in conjunction with other traders using Shared Projects in MetaTrader 5

The new build makes it more convenient to develop robots with other traders. The Shared Projects section provides the ability for developing trade applications in teams. A project developed under Shared Porjects is automatically added to the online MQL5 Storage. In the project properties, you can grant permissions to other MQL5.community members and set the common parameters for the group:

  • Private project
  • Free to join project
  • Join by request project

The new MQL5 Cloud Protector mechanism provides an additional layer of protection for trading robots. This protection is similar to the option used in MetaTrader Market, where EX5 product files are additionally compiled to native code. Now, this feature is available to all developers. Protector-backed files can be executed on any computer, similar to common executable applications. To enable protection, execute the following command in MetaEditor: Tools — MQL5 Cloud Protector.

Use MQL5 Cloud Protector to protect your trading robots

When a country is added, all economic indices that have a significant impact on the national currency in the calendar are included. Descriptions are professionally translated into 7 languages. This makes our solution different from many others which lack updating since their initial development.

2. Full description of events with forecasts and archived data

One of the key distinguishing features of the MetaQuotes calendar is data completeness. Each indicator has a separate page with a detailed description along with complete data on the event, including its influence on a particular currency. The description also includes a reference to the source, dates of the previous/next releases of the event, as well as its archived values: actual and forecast. For analysis clarity, the entire dynamics distribution is presented in the chart.

3. It is free

The development of a professional economic calendar is a complex task which requires considerable time and human resources. Due to the intensive development resources, some companies distribute such products on a commercial basis. Fortunately, this is not the case with our solution — we allow our customers to set it up for free.

4. No ads

Some financial resources offer their calendars for free, but with built-in advertising. The professional calendar from MetaQuotes offers no ads and has no plans to introduce them in the future.

5. Full translation into 7 languages

All data in our calendar, including event descriptions, are fully translated into English, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese and German. This allows traders from different countries to use the economic calendar in their native language. The complete translation favorably distinguishes our calendar from many other similar solutions which declare support for 10-15 languages. In reality, only interface elements are translated, while event names and descriptions remain in English.

On top of the above, our solution accommodates a nice bonus. The widget adjusts to the browser's language and shows your website visitors the calendar in their native language. All this happens automatically without the need for any additional settings.

6. Traders remain in your website

Leading financial data providers feature their own economic calendars which can only be used in their own websites. Our calendar incorporates a convenient widget that can be easily embedded to your website. Traders will no longer have to browse through third-party websites searching for relevant information. Also, the service allows you to attract new website visitors.

7. Events from primary sources

Our calendar receives news first-hand with no delays. No intermediary websites are used. Each event description has a link to the source. This operation mode is difficult to be implemented, but it guarantees complete reliability and accuracy of the collected data.

8. Time zone selection

The MetaQuotes calendar publishes events for countries located in different time zones: United States, United Kingdom, Japan and Australia among others. Important events tracking is maintained via local time adaptation. Manual adaptation of time zones is also possible. This feature provides your visitors with protection against missing news releases.

9. Calendar auto update

Our calendar is updated automatically immediately after a new event appears in the source. This is different from free versions of some other calendars which need to be updated manually. Our service relieves traders from the necessity of constantly re-loading the page, while it avoids the related negative feedback and an excessive load in the website.

10. Easy installation

The calendar can be set up in just a few clicks. Specify the desired calendar width/height and the default period (the current day or week) here, and you are ready to go. The remaining parameters are adjusted automatically. Simply copy the generated code and paste it in your web page.

Provide your website visitors with a ready-to-use tool for monitoring important macroeconomic events. It is free, it has no ads and it is translated into 7 languages!

The fifteenth Money Fair Shanghai 2017 brought together tens of thousands of people from all over the world between the 1st and the 3rd of December in China. MetaQuotes Software participated in this large-scale event while the Company representatives described and presented all the new developments for the MetaTrader 5 trading platform and held a number of important Client meetings.

Shanghai's Money Fair is the most popular and high-profile financial forum in Asia. The fair is considered a key event for any company striving to develop in Asian markets.
