The migration to the new platform version is in line with the aim of the company to offer the very latest technology for trading services.

MetaTrader 5 is at the forefront of trading technology and is the go-to platform for firms looking to stay within the innovation lane. With MetaTrader 5, CFI offers equities, currencies, commodities, indices and ETFs while a constant stream of financial instruments is added on a periodic basis. MetaTrader 5 was a welcoming upgrade over MetaTrader 4 with features including:

MetaTrader 5 update build 2650: background chart loading and code profiler improvements

The recent MetaTrader 5 update delivers new functionality and further enhances user experience. The most noticeable changes are described below.

MetaTrader 5 update build 2650

Terminal: New Data Downloading Option

In order to save traffic, the platform downloads symbol price history only when the relevant data is requested, for example, when the price chart is opened or when testing is launched. However, waiting for data to download may not be convenient for actively used symbols.

Enable the new option "Preload chart data for open positions and orders", and the charts of the symbols for which you have open positions or pending orders, will be updated in the background mode. The relevant data will be immediately available for analysis whenever you open the symbol chart.

Code Profiler: New Features and Inlining Control

With the updated Profiler, trading robot developers can accurately determine the execution time of each MQL program section. Performance data can assist in creating efficient and fast-running solutions. In contrast to the previously used Profiler which significantly modified the program, the new version uses an unchanged executable code for profiling.

The Profiler now uses the Sampling method: MQL program execution is interrupted every millisecond to analyze which function part is being executed at that moment. The analysis reflects the share of each function in the total code execution time.

Performance metrics (in units and percentage):

  • Total CPU — how often the function was used.
  • Self CPU — how much processor time was utilized for the specific function execution. This variable is crucial in identifying MQL program bottlenecks.

Code Profiler: New Features

Another update concerns the function inlining during profiling. Inlining (adding a function code directly to its call site) enables program performance acceleration, but it makes function profiling difficult. Now, you can disable the inlining feature if you need a report on "pure" functions.

Code Profiler: Inlining Control

Tester: Improved Custom Settings

The update provides revised options for working with custom settings. For example, when the "Use custom settings" option is disabled, all other settings in the dialog are deactivated to avoid misleading interpretation.

Tester: Improved Custom Settings

Fixed calculation of custom commissions: now, commissions can be enabled by specifying the symbol name instead of the entire path. Also, the update features some minor bug fixes and interface improvements, including rearranged tabs and optimized table column width.

Giles Coghlan, Chief Currency Analyst, HYCM, commented: "With large price swings across the major indices, people want to drill down into the fundamentals for specific stocks. They are looking for the individual winners and losers in our COVID-19 impacted world. With renewed interest across several different sectors, it was only a natural step for us to give HYCM clients wider access to new individual stock opportunities.

One of the MetaTrader 5 platform benefits, is the ability to trade individual stocks alongside commodities and forex. The main advantage of the new platform over MetaTrader 4, is the Depth of Market (DOM) display, which allows all parties trading a security to view the full list of buy and sell orders, along with their sizes. This is why the MetaTrader 5 platform is an excellent way for us to offer FX symbols alongside the recently added stocks".

MetaTrader 5 build 2615: new properties of trading instruments and complex criterion in the Strategy Tester

MetaTrader 5 build 2615

MetaTrader 5 trading platform features improvements allowing traders to achieve better results:

  • additional fundamental data directly in the platform
  • search for the best combination of inputs using Complex Criterion max when optimizing EAs
  • arrange financial instruments by sector, industry and country
  • more efficient development of robots in the updated MetaEditor

Additional fundamental data for symbols

Now you can get extended data on any instrument from well-known financial portals and services. This will allow your trading decisions to be more educated and based on detailed data. Study the quotes history of Microsoft shares in Google Finance, get dozens of statistical parameters from Finviz, find out how traders are currently trading on the selected instrument, and so on. Now you can do all that directly in your terminal.

Additional fundamental data for symbols

We have done our best to provide additional fundamental data on the maximum number of instruments. However, this feature is not available in older platform versions. If you still utilize older platform versions, ask your broker to update the trading server.

New trading robot optimization criterion

Complex Criterion max is a complex parameter of trading robot inputs. When optimizing EAs, the maximum value of a single parameter (for example, profit) is not always the best option. The new option allows selection of the best passes with the best combination of parameters. For example, instead of the most profitable Expert Advisor, you can get an EA with moderate profit, reasonable drawdown and decent expectation. Thus, developers now have a built-in tool for creating balanced and stable robots.

New trading robot optimization criterion

The following parameters are available for complex optimization:

  • Number of trades
  • Drawdown
  • Recovery factor
  • Expected payoff
  • Sharpe ratio

After optimization, users receive the list of the best passes for all these parameters at once. The Result column shows an integral parameter, which makes it easier to find the best option. For ease of use, the values have different colors: weak combinations with values below 20 are highlighted in red, while strong ones (above 80) are shown in dark green.

After optimization, users receive the list of the best passes

Extended properties of trading instruments

It has become easier to work with symbols. Each instrument has additional parameters: economic sector, industry and country. These parameters can help you to quickly navigate through large unfamiliar markets with multiple symbols. For example, when working with a broker offering thousands and tens of thousands of financial instruments. The new function enables quick searching to establish to which industry a particular security belongs.

Extended properties of trading instruments

With the new parameters, you can manage the list of instruments in the Market Watch window. Add the list of German pharmaceutical companies, French automakers or British financial companies in a couple of clicks.

The Market Watch window

Changes in MetaEditor

We have revised the Intelligent code management functions, allowing faster code writing while minimizing errors. Now the tooltip shows the entire function signature rather than its name, making it possible to accurately define what exactly is included in the code. Case-insensitive options and entry options have been added to the tooltips for ease of use. The tooltip font and color highlighting scheme are now specified in the MetaEditor settings. This means users are able to customize the appearance of their workspace.

Grand Capital reports high popularity of MetaTrader 5 among traders

In late 2018, the international broker Grand Capital offered its customers a new MetaTrader 5-based account. Introduction of the trading platform expanded the trading capabilities of the company's customers. 

As a result, the company set up the most favorable conditions on MT5 accounts and enhanced the functionality for all categories of traders, within a year and a half. Currently, the company offers six different trading accounts, while the MetaTrader 5 one features the greatest number of trading instruments — more than 450. Furthermore, when opening this type of account, traders are able to select one of two account management systems: netting or hedging.

During trading, a highly customizable market execution of deals prevents requotes and minimizes the chances of slippage. The available leverage is up to 1:100. The floating leverage changes the maximum position size during trading, proportionally with the number of existing trades. The re-calculation is usually performed downwards to reduce the deposit overrun risk.

Grand Capital reports high popularity of MetaTrader 5 among traders

One of the main platform advantages is the ability not only to use the built-in analytical resources, but also to create custom technical indicators.

The platform makes it possible to improve the client service on a regular basis. Grand Capital's MT5 account includes both the advantages of good old MetaTrader 4, and the new MetaTrader 5. The fifth version has the same functions as MetaTrader 4, but it is more versatile and flexible in terms of creating custom algorithms.

The abundance of ready-made MetaTrader 5 development tools allows traders to create trading robots and perform market analysis with the highest degree of accuracy. As a result, MetaTrader 5-based accounts have become popular in just eighteen months.

Below is a sample feedback from traders who upgraded from MetaTrader 4 to MetaTrader 5:

“And although I have met different reviews of MetaTrader 5, especially from big fans of the previous version, I believe that there are almost no grounds for criticism. The platform is reliable, stable, and features some of the most comprehensive feature sets on the market. This is a confident leader in its segment”.

“When I contacted Grand Capital in 2019, I requested a custom investment portfolio with Asian securities. In addition to trading, I wanted to generate passive income. The shares I needed were only available in MetaTrader 5. Like most, it’s hard for me to accept new things, but that time I decided to give it a go and I wasn’t wrong. The platform’s new analysis features allowed me to reexamine my trading system in various angles and significantly improve it. While I was adjusting my trading system, the funds in Asian and European shares started generating a stable income. I am completely satisfied with the platform and won’t even think of returning to MetaTrader 4. And why would I want that?"
