MetaTrader 5 Android build 1262
  1. The trading platform now additionally supports the second position accounting system — Hedging. The new system allows opening multiple positions of the same financial instrument, including opposite positions. Now, the platform provides both exchange trading with the netting system and Forex trading with one of the two available systems.

    The new position accounting system is similar to that of MetaTrader 4, combined with all the advantages of the fifth-generation platform — execution of orders using multiple deals (including partial filling), stop-limit orders, and more.

    Update the platform right now to see how the hedging option works. When opening a new demo account, enable the "Use hedge" option. The option will be available if your broker's server has already been updated and configured.

  2. Also, the new version includes minor bug fixes and improvements.
