500 000 Traders Use MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 Mobile Terminals

Over half a million of traders from all over the world currently use MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 mobile terminals in their trading activity. This figure is the most objective proof of the high quality and functionality of the mobile applications developed by MetaQuotes Software Corp.

83 000 traders use MetaTrader 5 terminals, while 418 000 traders use MetaTrader 4. This statistical data includes the terminals both for iPhone and Android devices. Though both mobile platforms have almost similar functionality, the wider popularity of MetaTrader 4 is obvious. This can be explained by widespread distribution of the platform on the market.

"We are glad that we managed to release the applications that have become so popular. Positive statistical data suggests that we are on the right track, and we should continue our development in this direction" - said Gaies Chreis, company COO.

500 000 Traders Use MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 Mobile Terminals

The statistical data has been gathered during the last six months from the time when MetaQuotes ID was introduced in the mobile terminals. These unique identifiers have been designed to send service messages to traders' terminals. They also allow defining the number of actually used terminals. MetaQuotes ID is assigned to a mobile terminal only when it is launched. In other words, statistics consider only the terminals that have been actually launched and used.

Download and, most importantly, use MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 mobile terminals. Have a nice trend!

MetaTrader 5 Goes on the Ukrainian Exchange's List of Certified Brokerage Systems

We are pleased to announce that the MetaTrader 5 trading platform has been successfully certified by the Ukrainian Exchange. The certificate received from the Ukrainian Exchange states that the platform is in compliance with all requirements of the Ukrainian part and admitted to trading on the Ukrainian Exchange derivatives market.

MetaTrader 5 Goes on the Ukrainian Exchange

Any broker now has the opportunity to serve his clients on the Ukrainian Exchange using MetaTrader 5, while any trader can trade on the Ukrainian Exchange. Connection to the exchange in MetaTrader 5 is provided via the UXGateway developed specifically for this purpose.

The certification of the platform by the Ukrainian Exchange is a well thought out move towards strategic integration of MetaTrader 5 with world exchanges. This year, MetaQuotes Software Corp. has already succeeded with a number of significant exchanges and continues to actively develop gateways for new trading venues. The most critical goal the developers have set is to offer massive opportunities for MetaTrader 5 users to conveniently trade on any world exchange.

"Lately, we have been very active in integrating MetaTrader 5 with international exchanges and have done a big job over the last year," - says Gaies Chreis, COO of MetaQuotes Software Corp. "Thus, integration with the Ukrainian Exchange is the fifth integration accomplished this year. However, we are not going to stop at what has been achieved and will continue to expand the platform's horizons."

MetaTrader 5: Providing Traders with Trading Robots!

"Algorithmic trading should become popular" - that is the motto of MetaTrader 5 trading platform development. We have applied our best efforts to make trading robots available to the widest possible range of traders.

MQL5.Community

Modern MQL5 development environment allows users to develop Expert Advisors and technical indicators of any complexity. MQL5.com website contains plenty of useful information for developers, while MQL5 Cloud Network service allows them to perform tests and release new programs much faster.

However, all this is not enough to make algo trading really popular and let all traders use MetaTrader 5 platform's advanced features. Working towards this goal, we have already released MQL5 Wizard allowing any user without special knowledge to create Expert Advisors. All traders are now able to discover the world of the algorithmic trading.

In addition to that, we have launched Jobs service on MQL5.com. Now, any trader can place an order for development of a trading robot or an indicator, and it will be fulfilled by experienced developers. More than two years have already passed since the service launch and it is still developing rapidly. 3 200 orders have been fulfilled via this service by now. New orders appear at a growing rate, and the algo trading is used by traders more and more actively.


MQL5 Wizard, Jobs and Market


The launch of MQL5 Market has become the next logical step aimed to make algo trading even more popular. Now, any trader can buy a trading robot or a technical indicator right via the terminal. By the way, MQL5 Market already contains more than 280 applications available to any MetaTrader 5 user.

Looking back at the past, we can say that the automated trading becomes more popular. Most importantly, we can see a steady and growing demand for trading applications among common traders. They are more interested in new ways of making money on Forex and they order development of trading programs, as well as buy them in Market actively. This process is now gathering pace. However, it cannot be called widespread yet.

This means that we will continue to improve our solutions. Let all traders have their own trading robots!

Automated Trading Championship 2012 Has Started!

At last it happened - on October 1, 2012 started the sixth Automated Trading Championship 2012 in which representatives of 59 countries will participate! Personal data is verified, Expert Advisors of all registered participants are finally checked and the list of contestants is approved. This year 451 trading robots will fight for the 80,000 US dollars prize. 

Top three places in terms of EAs allowed to the competition are traditionally shared by Russia - 156 participants (34,6%), Ukraine - 38 (8,4%) and China - 24 (5,3%). By the number of participants Belarus has been on the fourth place last year, while this year it yields to Germany with its 15 participants and now shares fifth place with Indonesia, Spain and the United States (each has 13 participants).

Automated Trading Championship 2012 Has Started!


As always, there was a large drop-out of applications from Indonesia. While at the moment of 09.21.2012 personal data of 261 representatives of this country has been approved, only 13 trading robots came to the starting line of the Championship. This is mere 5% of the original amount of competitors who passed the first step of verification. To be fair we must note that India also was in the top three by the number of submitted applications after registration end. But only two of 193 participants who filled out their details will compete for prizes.

For this Championship start we timed the release of the new version of Signals - now in order to copy deals from an account of trading signals provider all you need is to subscribe to it. The new upcoming build will let you automatically copy deals of a selected Automated Trading Championship 2012 participant directly to the MetaTrader 5 terminal.

We would like to express our gratitude to our sponsors for their commitment in organizing the Automated Trading Championship 2012: Alpari (UK) Limited, United World Capital LTD and RoboForex LP.

SMX and MetaQuotes Software Corp. Have Held the Trading Championship

From March 19, 2012 to April 5, 2012 SMX exchange and our company arranged and carried out SMX Trading Championship. The competition was held at SMX exchange and students from the following Singaporean universities were invited to participate: National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University and Singapore Management University.

SMX and MetaQuotes Software Corp. Have Held the Trading Championship

According to the Championship rules, each participant started its trading activity having $200 000 on the account. The task was to increase it as much as possible by trading SMX GOLD Futures, SMX EUR_USD Futures and SMX Cooper Futures contracts.

As in the Automated Trading Championship, SMX Trading Championship used the same parameter to determine the winners - maximum profit. But unlike АТС, SMX Trading Championship was the competition of traders, not trading robots.

Three winners were determined on April 5 upon the competition end. The first place belongs to Song Jiashun Marc, the student of Singapore Management University (SMU). Mr. Song increased his initial deposit by half within a bit more than two weeks. That is a great result!

The second and third places went to students Leong Jie Larp ($292 000) and Kok Ho ($280 000) from Nanyang Technological University (NTU). Both participants also showed impressive results falling behind the leader just for a small bit. Unfortunately, the representatives of the National University of Singapore have lost the competition and have not found themselves among the winners.

According to the organizers and participants, SMX Trading Championship was successful. About 500 students were among its participants and more than 25 000 trading operations were performed using various SMX exchange financial instruments. MetaTrader 5 trading platform certified for SMX in January this year has been used during the competition.

SMX and MetaQuotes Software Corp. congratulate all the competition participants and winners once more. Let favorable trends be with you!
