BORSA completely shifts its trading, analytics and risk architecture to MetaTrader 5 for hedge funds

BORSA prop trading company invested significant resources in its own MetaTrader 5-based infrastructure to provide reliable and effective control, accompanied by a scaling in its business processes.

"Our fund was looking for a solution allowing us to build a multi-asset infrastructure within a single platform", says Mr Irek Safin, Executive Partner at Borsa Trade LLP. "This is necessary since we work on different exchanges and with different asset classes, while actively applying arbitrage and speculative strategies. It was not always convenient for our traders to maintain positions via different exchange terminals. Besides, they had to use several disparate risk management systems and analytical blocks. Before selecting the 'MetaTrader 5 for hedge funds' solution, we tested and compared similar infrastructure solutions. The test results effectively showed the advantages of the products developed by MetaQuotes Ltd. To date, we have created a single ecosystem combining different aspects of our activities: analytics, trading (including algorithmic trading) and risk management.

Mr Irek Safin, BORSA

BORSA is a brand of Borsa Trade LLP registered in the UK. The company manages its own capital and trades a broad spectrum of assets (stocks, currency and futures) on the following exchanges:

Brokeree Solutions releases Exposure Manager for MetaTrader 5

Exposure Manager by Brokeree Solutions is a new risk management tool for MetaTrader 5 brokers. The solution allows hedging of high-risk account positions to a clearing party or to another MetaTrader server. The broker can connect all MetaTrader 5 servers to the same routing core, configure smart hedging, and synchronize positions at a number of gateways. Any liquidity provider or a clearing party can be connected as a gateway via FIX protocols.

Exposure Manager connects to MetaTrader servers via Manager API and can be used by White Label brokers to expand their business, as well as to gain more transparency and control over their risk management activity. The remarkable feature of the solution is that it combines trading accounts from several MetaTrader servers in internal groups and sends operations as a netted position to a chosen gateway. This way, a forex broker can utilize sophisticated risk management strategies within one solution.

If a broker has already established business on MetaTrader 4, which is connected to a liquidity provider, but they would like to start providing MetaTrader 5 to clients, Exposure Manager can be used to forward positions from MetaTrader 5 to a coverage account on MetaTrader 4. This capability ensures that clients will continue to receive STP experience. 

Andrey Kamyshanov, Brokeree Solutions

Mr. Andrey Kamyshanov, CEO of Brokeree Solutions, commented: "We believe that our product will be able to fill the gap for brokers who wish to increase flexibility in controlling their risks without investing in a full-featured liquidity bridge solution."

Integration with Python and support for Market and Signals services in Wine (Linux/macOS) in MetaTrader 5 build 2085

In the new MetaTrader 5 version, we have added an API which enables request of MetaTrader 5 terminal data through applications, using the Python high-level programming language. The API contains multiple libraries for machine learning, process automation, as well as data analysis and visualization.

MetaTrader package for Python is designed for efficient and fast obtaining of exchange data via interprocessor communication, directly from MetaTrader 5. The data received via this pathway can be used for statistical calculations and machine learning.

MetaTrader 5 integration with Python

We have optimized the store of trading robots and the copy trading service: the Market and Signals sections now operate up to 7 times faster. Furthermore, the built-in platform services have become available for traders using UNIX-like operating systems, including macOS, Linux and Ubuntu. The new build features support for "Market", "Signals" and "Search" in Wine.

Market and Signals support in Wine

The built-in learning program has been translated into more than 30 languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Portuguese and German, among others. Hints only appear for the actions which the user has never performed in the platform. The training progress bar is seamlessly displayed in the toolbar.

Built-in interactive learning system in 30 languages

New options in the updated platform enable verification of phone numbers and emails, as they have been specified by traders when opening demo and preliminary accounts. The need for data verification is determined by the broker. If the option is enabled, confirmation codes are automatically sent to the trader during an account request and special code fields appear in the dialog box. Confirmation codes are valid for several minutes.

Phone and email verification in MetaTrader 5

We have expanded MQL5.community payment options through the PayPal system. After logging into PayPal, traders can allow further payments to MetaQuotes Software and make other purchases with one click.

Payment for MQL5.community services via PayPal

In MetaTrader 5 build 2085, we have performed a large internal optimization of the strategy tester, which enables much faster testing for some of the task types and higher operation stability. Major improvements include:

  • Operations with frames on local, network and cloud agents have been optimized. Such operations are now processed faster and are never skipped.
  • The tester can now redistribute tasks to agents during the optimization process. If a new agent has become available, the tester automatically creates a new package of tasks, using those which were earlier distributed among other agents.
  • Optimization logging has been extended: it includes detailed statistics related to the MQL5 Cloud Network usage.
  • Operation of cloud testing agents has been optimized: now computation tasks are distributed more efficiently.
