Ajuda para a MetaTrader 5 iPhone/iPad

Messages

The MetaTrader 5 for iPhone supports push notifications. Push notifications are short text messages that can be sent to your device from the PC version of the trading platform, and from various services of the MQL5.community.

Push notifications are very important. They allow traders to keep abreast of the latest updates. An Expert Advisor running in a desktop trading platform can notify a trader about the emergence of a new signal. The trader, wherever he may be, receives the signal to the mobile device and can make a trading operation through the MetaTrader 5 for iPhone.

Push notifications are received by the device, regardless of whether the MetaTrader 5 application is running or not. All that is needed is the mobile Internet connection.

During installation of MetaTrader 5 for iPhone, a unique identifier called MetaQuotes ID is assigned to each user. This identifier is used like a phone number. Knowing it, various applications can send messages to the user.

Specify MetaQuotes ID in your user profile at MQL5.community and in your trading platform in order to receive notifications of important events in the community: new comments, publications, applications in the Market and much more.

In addition, you can communicate with your MQL5.community friends and colleagues straight from the MetaTrader 5 for iPhone. Any communication is displayed as a chat similar to those used in popular messaging apps.

Open section "Messages Messages" in the platform settings.
