MetaTrader 5 平台更新 Build 1150:轻松地市场购买,历史交易记录和交易时间&交易销售的调试

市场

  1. 我们引进了"直接" 购买的新机制。现在从市场购买自动交易或指标更加容易,并且您甚至无需MQL5.community账户。

    一步购买
    用户无需登录MQL5.community 账户,向里面充值。现在可以使用平台提供的支付系统直接从平台购买支付产品。为了保持市场购买历史记录的清楚性和统一性,所需的支付额将首先转到您的MQL5.community账户,在那里完成产品的支付。

    您可以轻松地从您MQL5.community 个人档案访问和查看您的所有支付记录。





    购买无需注册
    没有MQL5.community账户也可以在市场购买产品。点击"购买" 并使用提供的支付系统为产品付款。



    然后您将回到到支付系统网页,完成购买。



    在那之后,我们强烈建议您注册一个MQL5.community账户,您的购买将会自动关联到账户。这能够使您可以在多个计算机更新和安装产品。

编辑器

  1. 新功能允许在历史价格调试EA和技术指标。在旧版中,调试需要实时图表。

    现在,在所需的历史数据可以测试任何程序。调试是在策略测试的可视化测试模式中运行。应用程序在tester的模拟序列报价图表上执行。

    在MetaEditor设置中配置调试参数:交易品种,时间表,间隔,执行模式,报价生成模式,初始入金和杠杆。这些参数将被应用于可视化测试。



    在代码中设置断点,然后使用历史价格开始调试。



    这将启动可视化测试和调试过程。



主机

  1. 虚拟主机服务中已经实现了多个改进和修复。

    主要变化是在运行Linux和Mac OS的计算机上操作 Wine。在Wine中所有功能都可用于所有分配的虚拟服务器,包括移动,监控性能和查看日志。


    日志操作也已经变化。如果用户请求记录太多,那么只有特定时期的部分开始日志可被下载。这会防止因日志数量过大而导致的性能退化。如果您想要进一步下载日志,您不再需要更改请求日期。只需在日志查看器窗口选择最后一排并按下PgDn。.




程序端

  1. 添加支持一种特殊类型的非交易资产,它可以作为客户资产,为其他交易工具所有的持仓提供所需的预付款。例如,在一个交易者的账户中有一定数量的黄金实物 ,它可以用作持仓预付款(担保)。

    诸如此类的资产都显示为持仓。它们的值通过以下公式计算:合约大小 * 手数 * 市场价格 * 流动性比率。

    这里,流动性比率意味着交易商允许用于预付款的资产比率。


    资产被添加至客户净值并提高了可用预付款,从而增加了允许账户操作的交易量。

    因此,现在可以开通多种预付款类型的账户。


    在上面示例中,交易者拥有1盎司黄金,当前市值1 210.56USD。该值被加入净值并且在零结余情况下可用预付款允许交易者继续交易。

  2. 新的点图表市场深度和交易时间&销售数据。

    拥有实际交易价格的交易工具报价图表现在显示在市场深度。交易上进行的所有事务都绘制在这个图表上:
    • 红圈 - 卖出交易
    • 蓝圈 - 买入交易
    • 绿圈 - 交易方向未定义。它用于交易无法传输交易方向的时候。在这种情况下,交易方向基于相较于卖价买价的交易价格来决定。买入交易就是在买价或更高价格下执行,卖出交易在卖价或更低价格执行。如果交易价格在卖价和买价之间,则不定义方向

    圆圈越大,交易量越大。交易量在订单号图表下也显示为直方图。



    在直方图的上部和下部,会显示当前买卖提供的总交易量。

  3. 交易品种选择对话框现在包含显示交易品种到期日期的列。以及,从列表可以隐藏到期工具。到期合约自动替换为活动合约。



    所有到期交易品种都被隐藏以保持更紧凑的显示。这在期货市场的工作中会尤其有用。无关交易品种是通过"最后交易"参数定义的到期交易品种。这个日期在"到期"列中指明。若要查看所有交易品种,请点击"显示到期合约"。
    为了更便于显示,交易品种列表会自动分类:

    • 首先列出来的是没有到期日期的交易品种
    • 紧接着是始于最近日期到期的交易品种
    • 然后显示始于去年到期的过期交易品种
    • 按照字母顺序排列的其他交易品种

    快捷菜单中的选项"自动移除到期交易品种"允许以"市场报价"窗口的活动交易品种替代过期交易品种。



    程序端重启后,过期交易品种被隐藏,活动交易品种替代添加。例如,LKOH3.15的到期期货合约将被接下来的定义相同的资产LKOH6.15合约所替代。

    如果没有EA交易运行,那么相应打开图表中的交易品种也会被替代。

  4. 修正更新市场深度窗口中的交易按钮取决于是否有持仓,以及仅持有买入持仓的权限。如果没有持仓,那么关闭按钮无法使用。如果不允许卖出持仓,那么卖出按钮无法使用。
  5. 程序端界面进一步适应高分辨率屏幕(4K)。
  6. 修正请求执行模式下验证关闭持仓交易量,防止交易量少于最小允许值。
  7. 修正可能导致从一个目录启动多个程序端实例的错误。
  8. 新增以不同语言支持和自动过滤经济日历。依据程序端界面语言执行过滤。
  9. 日志查看器现在具有通过当前显示的日志进行搜索的功能。



    它搜索日志显示列表中的单词/词组。
  10. 添加泰语的客户端翻译。
  11. 更新北印度语的客户端翻译。

MQL5

  1. 新函数GetMicrosecondCount 返回自从MQL5程序启动后通过的微秒数:
    ulong  GetMicrosecondCount();
    该函数可以用于配置程序和确定"bottlenecks"。

  2. ENUM_OPENCL_PROPERTY_INTEGER枚举中的新图表属性CL_BUFFER_SIZE - 它以字节返回OpenCL buffer实际大小。该属性可以通过CLGetInfoInteger函数接收。
  3. WebRequest 函数的错误通知已经更改。如果错误发生,'result' 数组将包含错误描述。
  4. ArraySort,ArrayBsearch,ArrayMinimum 和 ArrayMaximum 分类和搜索功能现在可以使用多维数组。分类和搜索只能通过第一个(0)数组指数来执行。之前,这些功能只能在一维数组下使用。
  5. 修正宏编译的一些漏洞。

Tester

  1. 可视化测试操作中的一些改进和漏洞修复。测试器现在通过工具条提供更顺畅的测试速度控制。

修正崩溃日志中报告的错误

  1. 更新的文档。

MetaTrader 5 平台在 Build 1085 中的更新

MetaTrader 5 客户终端 build 1085
  1. 终端: 现在可以使用新的虚拟主机服务,可以在客户终端中位一个交易账户直接租用一个虚拟服务器,它提供了对交易服务器稳定的连接以及用于在EA进行的不间断的计算操作,交易复制现在也变得更加简单了。

    虚拟服务器是由 MetaQuotes 软件公司的伙伴公司维护的。
    分配一个虚拟服务器
    为了在虚拟服务器上取得虚拟终端,请使用所需的交易账户连接并通过上下文菜单中的"注册一个虚拟服务器"命令来执行。




    虚拟主机向导窗口出现,它展示了虚拟主机网络是如何工作的。获得一个虚拟服务器的过程包括三个步骤:首先, 您将了解到如何准备迁移;在那之后,您将可以选择距离经纪商交易服务器最近的虚拟服务器,以最小化网络延迟;



    您可以选择提供给每个MQL5.community注册用户的免费一天主机服务,或者选择一种提供的服务计划;最后,您将可以根据您的目标来选择数据迁移的模式:

    • 如果您需要同时运行EA交易/指标和复制交易,就需要完整迁移;
    • 如果不需要订阅信号,则只有EA交易和指标;
    • 只有交易的复制 - 只有信号复制设置(没有图表或者程序)被迁移。

    在选择了迁移模式之后,您可以通过点击“现在迁移”来立即运行虚拟服务器,或者晚些在任何时候这样做。

    准备迁移
    在运行虚拟终端之前,您应当为它准备一个活动的环境 - 图表,载入的指标和EA交易,信号复制参数和终端设置。

    • 图表和市场报价 - 从市场报价中隐藏所有不需要的资产以减少流量。关闭不需要的图表。在终端设置中,指定"窗口中的最大柱数"所需的值 - 终端在那之后会重新启动。
    • 指标和EA交易 - 把所需的EA和指标附加到图表上。在市场上购买的以及在图表上载入的产品也会被迁移,它们会保留完整功能,并且可用的激活数不会减少。所有指标和EA交易的外部参数应当正确设置。
    • 电子邮件, FTP 和信号 - 如果 EA 交易要发送电子邮件,通过 FTP 上传数据或者复制信号的交易,要确保指定了所有所需设置。在社区页面正确设置您MQL5.community账户的登录名和密码,这对信号复制是必需的。
    • 交易和复制信号的许可 - 在虚拟终端中永远允许自动化交易,为了操作信号,要在信号部分设置复制的参数。
    • WebRequest - 如果在虚拟终端中运行的程序使用WebReqest()函数来发送 HTTP 请求, 您应当设置许可并且在EA交易页面列出所有信任的URL。


    迁移
    迁移就是把当前活动的环境从客户终端中传输到虚拟终端中,
    迁移是在每次客户终端的同步中进行的。同步永远是单方向的过程 - 客户终端的环境被转移到虚拟终端中,而永远不会反过来。虚拟终端的状态可以通过请求终端来监控,还有EA交易的记录以及虚拟服务器的监控数据。
    为了进行同步,要打开账户的上下文菜单并选择迁移类型。




    这样,您就一直都能改变图表的数量和交易品种列表,运行的程序和它们的输入参数,终端设置和信号的订阅等等。

    当进行迁移时,所有的数据都记录在客户终端的记录中。


    在同步之后,打开虚拟终端的主日志可以检查其中执行的操作。




    操作虚拟终端
    租用的虚拟服务器状态也可以客户终端中很容易地监控,在上下文菜单中执行 "详细" 命令。



    信息在四个页面中作展示:

    • 详细 - 虚拟服务器本身的数据以及终端的活动环境。
    • CPU 使用 - CPU 使用图表, %.
    • 内存使用 - 内存使用图表, Mb.
    • 硬盘使用 - 硬盘使用图表, Mb.
    如需了解有关该服务的更多信息,请阅读文章"如何准备迁移到虚拟主机上的交易账户""虚拟主机服务的使用规则"

  2. 市场: 现在, 可以租用MetaTrader 市场中的产品了,租期为1,3,6或者12个月。这对开发人员和买家来说都是很有利的,作者可以通过允许潜在买家以较低花费检验他们的产品而极大地增强用户的信心,对于买家来说,租用也是在买入产品之前对它进行评估的另一种方法。和试用版不同,租用的产品除了有效的使用期限之外没有任何限制。
    任何市场产品的开发人员都可以选择他们的产品是否可以租用以及设置租用的价格。




    开发人员也可以选择不出租他们的产品,而只是在完整版中提供没有限制的使用。
    如果产品可以租用,它的网页上显示的可能选项是: 租用时间和价格。点击租用并选择租用的时间,



    在租期过期之后,用户可以续租或者购买完整版。

  3. 终端: 删除了在终端中使用“另存为图片”命令或者通过MQL5的Screenshot()函数保存图表截图中的 "MetaTrader 5, @ 2001-2015 MetaQuotes-Software Corp."版权信息,这使得屏幕截图的发布更为简单。




  4. 终端: 修正了内建的 Gator 振荡技术指标的计算和参数的管理。
  5. 终端: 提高了连接到交易服务器时对连接点的扫描。
  6. 终端: 修正了偶然发生的 LiveUpdate 运行错误。
  7. MQL5: 增加了 SIGNAL_BASE_CURRENCY 信号属性 - 信号提供商的存款币别 - 加到 ENUM_SIGNAL_BASE_STRING 枚举中。该属性可以通过 SignalBaseGetString 函数来读取。
  8. MQL5: 修正了在继承时确认访问父类成员权限时的编译错误。
  9. MQL5: 修正了通过参数调整重载类方法的编译错误。
  10. 测试器: 优化了 MQL5 云网络代理的工作,现在,代理不需要时间来做所谓的"热身" - 连接云网络服务器并发布任务,代理一直可以接收和执行任务了,这加速了通过 MQL5 云网络进行的优化。
  11. 测试器: 提高了在策略测试器中本地,远端和云代理的展示状态,
  12. 修正了崩溃记录中报告的错误;
  13. 更新了文档。

12 十二月 2014
MetaTrader 5 Platform Update Build 1035: Option Strategy Builder and Access to Ticks

Trading Terminal

  1. Implementation of functions for trading options is currently underway. The Option Strategy Builder has been added. It helps users combine different options in one investment portfolio, and to assess the possibilities and potential risks.



    The Builder is easy to use: a trader chooses the option based on the expiration date and the underlying asset, and then selects one of the more than 30 available strategies. The Builder displays the appropriate combination of options and calculates evaluation parameters - the so-called Greeks. The profit/loss chart and the Greeks based chart appear at the bottom of the window.

    In addition to a large number of built-in strategies, traders can create and save their own strategies for later use.

  2. Added display of the number of newsletters received in the last 24 hours.




  3. Optimized and accelerated synchronization of large history of trading orders and deals.
  4. Fixed launch of several custom indicators in one chart subwindow.
  5. Fixed recalculation of Bill Williams Market Facilitation Index for a changed chart period.
  6. Fixed minimization of the "Toolbox window".
  7. Fixed generation of the account state report published over FTP.
  8. Updated translation of user interface into German.
  9. Added translation of user interface into Greek and Uzbek.

MQL5 Language

  1. New function for working with the tick history CopyTicks. The function is used for receiving an array of ticks accumulated by the terminal for the current session. The depth is limited to the last 2000 ticks.

    The new function expands the possibilities for developing scalping trading robots. The OnTick function does not handle every tick, it notifies the Expert Advisor of market changes. It can be a batch of changes: the terminal can simultaneously make a few ticks, but OnTick will be called only once to notify the EA of the latest market state. The CopyTicks function allows you to receive and analyze all the ticks.
    int  CopyTicks(
       const string      symbol_name,           // Symbol name
       MqlTick           &ticks_array[],        // the array where ticks will be placed
       uint              flags=COPY_TICKS_ALL,  // the flag that defines the type of received ticks
       ulong             from=0,                // the date starting from which ticks will be received, specified in milliseconds since 01.01.1970
       uint              count=0                // the number of latest ticks that should be received
       );
    Ticks can be requested by the date if the 'from' value is specified, or based on their number using the 'count' value. If none of the parameters are specified, all available ticks are received, but not more than 2000. Ticks can also be requested based on their type using the 'flags' parameter. Available values:

    • COPY_TICKS_ALL - all ticks.
    • COPY_TICKS_INFO - only information ticks (Bid and Ask).
    • COPY_TICKS_TRADE - only trade ticks (Last and Volume).

  2. Added an option for overloading template functions using array parameters.
  3. Added an option for overloading a method based on its constancy.
  4. Added generation of the CHARTEVENT_MOUSE_MOVE event (in the OnChartEvent entry point) at the right mouse button click on the chart.
  5. Fixed the functioning of the Switch operator if the case condition contains a negative value.
  6. Improved calculation accuracy in functions ObjectGetValueByTime() and ObjectGetTimeByValue(), used for receiving the price value for the specified object time and vice versa - time value for a price.

Strategy Tester

  1. MQL5 programs purchased in MetaTrader AppStore can now be tested and optimized on the MQL5 Cloud Network agents and on remote agents.
  2. Fixed calculation of swaps in points for positions with less than 1 lot.
  3. Fixed check and normalization of Stop Loss and Take Profit levels when opening a position for the trading instrument with "Market Execution" type.
  4. Fixed behavior of the ObjectGetValueByTime function. In some cases, the behavior of the function in the tester could be different from its behavior in the terminal.

MetaEditor

  1. Fixed MetaEditor crash when debugging and profiling looped programs.
  2. Added translation of user interface into Greek and Uzbek.

Fixed errors reported in crash logs.

    • Bid CALL - the bid price of a call option.
    • Ask CALL - the ask price of a call option.
    • Theo CALL - the theoretical (fair) price of a call option calculated for the specified strike based on historical data.
    • Strike - an option execution price.
    • Volatility - an implied volatility. It is specified as a percentage, and characterizes the expectations of market participants about the value of the underlying asset of the option.
    • Theo PUT - the theoretical price of a put option calculated for the specified strike based on historical data.
    • Bid PUT - the bid price of a put option.
    • Ask PUT - the ask price of a put option.

    Volatility Chart
    Option strikes are shown along the horizontal axis of the chart, and the implied volatility is shown along its vertical axis.




  2. Added display of ping values ​​in the list of access points.




  3. The terminal interface has been adapted for high resolution screens - Full HD and higher. Menus, toolbars, window titles and the status bar are now large enough for easy viewing and working on touch screen of Windows-tablets.

         }
    //--- No need to delete foo, it will be deleted automatically
      }
    //+------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
  2. Added the OBJPROP_ANCHOR property for the "Bitmap" and "Bitmap Label" objects. The property defines the anchor point of the graphical object on the chart: the upper left corner, center left, lower left corner, bottom center, etc.
  3. Added reading of the CHART_BRING_TO_TOP chart property (the chart is on top of all the others) in the ChartGetInteger function.
  4. Fixed the compilation and generation of the ternary operator "?".
  5. Fixed passing of a class member static array.
  6. Fixed applying of a template to the list of initialization of the template constructor class members.

Trading signals

  1. Restrictions on signal subscriptions became milder:

    If the trading history of the signal contains symbols that are not available in the subscriber's terminal, the subscription is now allowed (was prohibited in previous versions). The actions with the positions for which the subscriber does not have symbols are ignored. The following log appears in the Journal:
    2014.08.26 16:44:29.036    '2620818': Signal - symbol GBPNZD not found
    If the subscriber has positions and/or pending orders, a warning dialog suggesting to close/delete them appears (as before). Now, however, it is not an obligatory condition to continue working with signals.



    Synchronization with the signal provider will be performed. Positions and orders that were opened not based on the subscription signal are left unchanged. The user can perform any operations with them.

    Users can now perform trade operations manually (or using an Expert Advisor), being signed to a signal. The Signals service will ignore the positions and orders opened by the trader.
    Keep in mind that placing orders manually affects the amount of available margin on the trading account. Opening positions manually increases the overall load on the account as compared with the signal provider's account.
  2. Added support for a copied percent for the volumes with a floating point. The minimum percentage of copied volumes for signals has been reduced from 1% to 0.001%.

Strategy tester

  1. Fixed freezing of testing agents when working with the MQL5 Cloud Network.
  2. Fixed calculation of swaps in points for the minimal volumes of trading positions.

MetaTrader 5 trading terminal build 965: Smart Search, OTP and Money Transfer between Accounts

Trading terminal

  1. Completely revised built-in search. The new search is a smart and powerful system. Search results are now conveniently arranged by categories.

    As you type in search query, the system instantly offers possible options:



    In order to search by one of the previous queries, place the cursor to the box and click Down Arrow key to open the query history. Selection of a search area is not available in the search bar any more, as the system automatically selects the most relevant results arranging them by categories conveniently:



    For better representation, search results now contain not only texts but also avatars of articles, books and applications. Use the top panel to view the search results by MetaTrader Appstore Products, Code Base, Signals, MQL5.community Forum and Documentation. If a category has no results, it is highlighted in gray.

  2. Added the OTP authentication feature. Use of OTP (one-time password) provides an additional level of security when working with trading accounts. The user is required to enter a unique one-time password every time to connect to an account.

    One-time passwords are generated in the MetaTrader 5 mobile terminal for iPhone . The same one-time password generation option will be added in the mobile terminal for Android soon.

    How to enable OTP
    To start using one-time passwords, a trading account should be bound to a password generator, which is the MetaTrader mobile terminal 5 for iPhone.
    The use of the OTP option should be enabled on a trade server.
    Go to the Settings of the mobile terminal and select OTP. For security reasons, when the section is opened for the first time, a four-digit password should be set. The password must be entered every time to access the password generator.



    In the window that opens, select "Bind to account".



    Next, specify the name of the server on which the trading account was opened, the account number and the master password to it. The "Bind" should be kept enabled. It must be disabled, if the specified account should be unbound from the generator and one-time passwords should no longer be used.

    After the "Bind" button located in the upper part of the window is tapped, a trading will be bound to the generator, and an appropriate message will appear.



    Likewise, an unlimited number of accounts can be bound to the generator.

    The one-time password is displayed at the top of the OTP section. Underneath, a blue bar visualizes the password lifetime. Once the password expires, it is no longer valid, and a new password will be generated.

    Additional Commands:

    • Change Password - change the generator password.
    • Synchronize Time - synchronize the time of the mobile device with the reference server. Accuracy requirement is connected with the fact that the one-time password is bound with the current time interval, and this time should be the same on the client terminal and the server side.

    How to use OTP in the desktop terminal
    After binding a trading account to the generator, a one-time password will be additionally requested when connecting to it from the desktop terminal:




  3. Added an option for transferring money between accounts within the same trade server. Money can be transferred only from the currently connected account. Select it in the "Navigator" window and click "Transfer funds" in the context menu.



    In the dialog box, select the account to which funds need to be transferred. The transfer amount is specified in the deposit currency of the current account. It cannot exceed the current balance and the current amount of free margin of the account.

    To transfer funds, a master password must be specified for both accounts. If OTP authentication is used for the account, from which funds are transferred, the one-time password should be additionally specified.

    Transfer of funds is provided in the form of balance operations: a withdrawal operation on the current account and depositing operation on the recipient account.
    • The money transfer option should be enabled on the trade server. Depending on the settings, there are some restrictions on the accounts, between which transfer is allowed. In particular, money transfer can be allowed only for accounts with identical names and emails.

    • Funds can be transferred only within the same trading server and only between the accounts of the same type. From a real account funds can be transferred only to another real account, from a demo one - only to demo.
    • The accounts, between which funds are transferred, should use the same deposit currency.
  4. Added an option for changing the password of any trading account in the "Navigator" window. Previously, it was possible to change the password only for the currently connected account.

    Now any account can be selected in the "Navigator" window and its passwords can be changed by clicking the appropriate command in the context menu:




  5. Added the possibility to set SL and TP levels on the chart by dragging the trade level of the corresponding position (using drag'n'drop). Hover the mouse over the level of the position on the chart. Click the left mouse button and hold it to move the level up or down.



    For long positions dragging down allows to set stop loss, up - take profit. And vice versa for short positions. When a level is dragged, the possible profit/loss in pips and currency, which may occur when this level triggers, is shown.

  6. Changed the location of commands in the "Window" menu. Now the "Tile window" option is displayed first, hotkeys Alt+R have been assigned for this command. This command has also been added to the standard toolbar.




  7. In the "Navigator" categories "Indicators" and "Custom Indicators" have been combined into one category "Indicators".



    All custom indicators, examples, and indicators purchased from the MetaTrader AppStore are now shown together with the built-in technical indicators. Four categories of built-in indicators are always displayed first.

  8. Revised the Navigator's context menu.

    Login has been renamed to "Login to Trade Account". Authentication in MQL5.community is available not only via the terminal settings but also via the context menus of the "Accounts" section and its subsections.



    The following changes have been implemented to the account's context menu:
    • Moved "Open an Account" command to the first position.
    • Added "Change Password" feature.
    • Added "Register a Virtual Server" command.

  9. Fixed display of the Label and Bitmap Label graphical objects with the anchor point located in one of the bottom corners of a chart.

MQL5 Language

  1. Added WebRequest() function for working with HTTP requests allowing MQL5 programs to interact with different websites and web services.

    The new function allows any EA to exchange data with third-party websites, perform trades based on the latest news and economic calendar entries, implement analytics, generate and publish automatic reports, read the latest quotes and do many other things that could previously be achieved only by using third-party DLLs of questionable reliability. The new feature is absolutely safe for traders, as they are able to manage the list of trusted websites the programs have access to.

    WebRequest function sends and receives data from websites using GET and POST requests. The new feature is absolutely safe for traders, as they are able to manage the list of trusted websites the programs have access to.




    This option is disabled by default for security reasons.

  2. Added access to signals database and managing signals subscription from MQL5 applications.

    Now, a user can receive the list of signals, evaluate them according to user-defined criteria, select the best one and subscribe to it automatically from a MQL5 program. In fact, it means the advent of the new class of trading robots that periodically look through available signals and subscribe to the one that is most suitable at the moment.

    For this purpose new signal management functions have been added to the MQL5 language:

    • SignalBase*() — functions for accessing the signals database.
    • SignalInfo*() — functions for receiving signal settings.
    • SignalSubscribe() and SignalUnsubscribe() — subscription management functions.

    Thus, a user can not only copy trades, but also to select signals for copying. Both processes are automated.

    By default, a trading robot is not allowed to change signal settings for security reasons. To enable this function, tick the "Allow modification of Signals settings" option in Expert Advisor settings.




  3. Added new properties of the client terminal that are available through the TerminalInfo* functions:
    • TERMINAL_MQID - the property shows that MetaQuotes ID is specified in terminal settings.
    • TERMINAL_COMMUNITY_ACCOUNT - this property shows that MQL5.community account is specified in the settings.
    • TERMINAL_COMMUNITY_ACCOUNT - this property shows that MQL5.community account is specified in the settings.
    • TERMINAL_COMMUNITY_BALANCE - value of balance on the MQL5.community account.
    • TERMINAL_NOTIFICATIONS_ENABLED - shows whether sending notifications through MetaQuotes ID is allowed.

  4. Added functions for working with cryptographic algorithms: CryptEncode() and CryptDecode(). These functions allow you to encrypt and decrypt the data, for example, when sending data over the network using the WebRequest() function. They also allow you to calculate checksums and make data archiving.

    Function signatures:
    int CryptEncode(ENUM_CRYPT_METHOD method,const uchar &data[],const uchar &key[],uchar &result[]);
    int CryptDecode(ENUM_CRYPT_METHOD method,const uchar &data[],const uchar &key[],uchar &result[]);
    A new enumeration ENUM_CRYPT_METHOD has been added for working with the functions:
    CRYPT_BASE64,      // BASE64 encryption (re-encoding)
    CRYPT_AES128,      // AES encryption with 128-bit key
    CRYPT_AES256,      // AES encryption with 256-bit key
    CRYPT_DES,         // DES encryption (key length is 56 bits - 7 bytes)
    CRYPT_HASH_SHA1,   // calculation of HASH SHA1
    CRYPT_HASH_SHA256, // calculation of HASH SHA256
    CRYPT_HASH_MD5,    // calculation of HASH MD5
    CRYPT_ARCH_ZIP,    // ZIP archive

  5. Added an option for changing the size of the properties dialog of MQL5 programs.




  6. Added ability to debug the template functions.
  7. Added definition of the custom indicators that are executed too slowly. If the indicator is slow, "indicator is too slow" entry appears in the Journal.
  8. Fixed the value returned by the IsStopped() function. This function is used for determining the forced stopping of MQL5 programs in custom indicators. Previously, this function always returns FALSE.
  9. Fixed verification of input parameters of MQL5 programs by data type. In particular, for the parameter type uchar, one could specify a value greater than 255.
  10. Fixed an error in StringConcatenate() function.
  11. Fixed FileSize() function for files that are available for writing. Previously, the function returned the file size without considering the latest write operations.
  12. File operations have been revised. Now work with files has become faster.

Trading Signals

  1. Fixed copying of SL and TP values of trade positions in case the number of decimal places in the symbol price of the signal source differs from that of the subscriber.
  2. Fixed copying of trade positions from signal providers with incorrect settings of trade instruments on the side of the trade server.
  3. Fixed closing of positions opened by a trading signal when account Equity value falls below the value specified in the signal copying parameters. In some cases, closing of positions could lead to terminal crash.

MetaEditor

  1. Optimized work with large source text files (tens of megabytes). Increased operation speed and reduced memory consumption.
  2. Fixed navigating through a source code using "Ctrl + -" and "Ctrl + Shift + -" shortcuts.

Fixed errors reported in crash logs.

Market

  1. Another new product category has been added to MetaTrader AppStore following trading and financial magazines - Books. Now, you can purchase the works of well-known traders and analysts along with trading robots and indicators. The range of books is increasing daily.


    Books in MetaTrader Market

    Just like MetaTrader 5 applications, books can be purchased at MQL5.community Market as well as directly via MetaTrader 5 terminal. All books are accompanied by descriptions and screenshots:




    Before making a purchase, you can download a preview - the first few pages of a book. The exact number of available pages is defined by a seller.

    To buy a book, you should have an MQL5.com account and the necessary amount of funds on it. The account data should be specified at the Community tab of the terminal settings:



    Click Buy on the book's page to purchase it. Purchase confirmation dialog appears:



    To continue, agree to the rules of using the Market service and enter your MQL5.community password. After that, the specified amount of funds will be withdrawn from your account and the book will be downloaded. Buy button will be replaced by Open one.

    Book files are downloaded to My Documents\MQL5 Market\Books\. The download may be performed in two formats:

    • MQB - this protected format is used for paid books. When purchasing and downloading a book file, it is encoded so that it can be opened only on the PC it has been downloaded to. Generation of an encoded copy is called activation. Each book can be activated at least 5 times on different hardware. Book sellers can increase the number of activations at their sole discretion.
    • PDF - this format is used for free books and previews. After downloading, such file can be moved and viewed on other devices.

    The special component called MetaViewer has been added to MetaTrader 5 terminal allowing users to view book files. MetaViewer is a convenient application for viewing books and magazines in MQB and PDF formats. Keyboard arrows are used to turn over the pages: left and right arrows - for page-by-page navigation, while up and down arrows - for scrolling.

  2. Fixed checking and tracking parameter and operand constancy.

Trading Signals

  1. Added additional checks for the allowed trading modes at a symbol when copying signals. If a signal arrives at a subscriber's account but only closing of positions is allowed at that symbol, this will no longer cause complete termination of signals copying and forced closing of all positions. Now, if a signal for position opening arrives at a subscriber's account, the platform perceives that as the command to synchronize subscriber's and provider's accounts. A signal for position closing is handled as usual.

Strategy Tester

  1. Added interface translations into French, Japanese and Arabic. Updated translations into German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish and Chinese.

28 二月 2014
MetaTrader 5 Build 900
  1. Market: Added new product category in MetaTrader AppStore — Magazines. Now, users can buy not only trading applications but also trading and financial magazines quickly and easily.

    Just like MetaTrader 5 applications, magazines can be purchased at MQL5.community Market as well as directly via MetaTrader 5 terminal. All magazines are accompanied by detailed descriptions and screenshot galleries:

    The latest magazine issues are always displayed in the showcase, while the previous ones can be found on the Archive tab.

    To buy a magazine, you should have an MQL5.com account and the necessary amount of funds on it. The account data should be specified at the Community tab of the terminal settings:

    Click Buy on the magazine's page to purchase it. Purchase confirmation dialog appears:

    To continue, agree to the rules of using the Market service and enter your MQL5.community password. After that, the specified amount of funds will be withdrawn from your account and the magazine will be downloaded. Buy button will be replaced by Open one.

    Magazine files are downloaded to My Documents\MQL5 Market\Magazines\[Magazine name]\[Issue name]. The download may be performed in two formats:

    • MQB - this protected format is used for paid magazines. When purchasing and downloading a magazine file, it is encoded so that it can be opened only on the PC it has been downloaded to. Generation of an encoded copy is called activation. Each magazine can be activated at least 5 times on different hardware. Magazine sellers can increase the number of activations at their sole discretion.

    • PDF - this format is used for free magazines. After downloading, such file can be moved and viewed on other devices.

    The special component called MetaViewer has been added to MetaTrader 5 terminal allowing users to view MQB files. This application is launched when you click Open at the downloaded magazine page. If User Account Control system is enabled on the user's PC, the user will be prompted to allow the terminal to associate MQB files with MetaViewer during the first launch. After the association, MQB files are automatically opened in MetaViewer when launched from Windows file explorer.

    If you click ÎÊ, the files are associated and the selected magazine issue is opened in MetaViewer immediately. If you click Cancel, only the magazine issue is opened.

    MetaViewer is a convenient application for viewing books and magazines in MQB and PDF formats. Keyboard arrows are used to turn over the pages: left and right arrows - for page-by-page navigation, while up and down arrows - for scrolling. MetaViewer menu and control panel contain additional commands for setting the journal's view and navigation:

    • File - commands for opening the files and exiting the program.
    • View - display settings: interface language, page look, enabling control panel and status bar, as well as page rotation.
    • Navigation - navigation commands: switching between the pages, moving to the first, last or selected page.
    • Zoom - page scale management commands: zooming in and out, fitting height, width and actual page size.
    • Help - information about the program and useful links.
  2. Terminal: Added MQL tab to EX5 file properties. The tab contains the program's icon as well as its name and description specified in the application's source code via the appropriate #property parameters.

    The tab appears only after MetaViewer is registered in the system. If a current user has sufficient rights and User Account Control system is disabled, MetaViewer is registered automatically during the terminal's first launch after the update. Otherwise, the user will see the dialog window requesting a one-time elevation of rights for MetaViewer during the first attempt to open a magazine.

  3. Terminal: Added MQL5.community fast registration dialog in case a user has no account. Now, an MQL5.community account can be created without the need to leave the terminal.

    Specify login and email address in the registration window. After clicking Register, an email for MQL5.community account activation is sent to the specified address.

    MQL5.community account allows traders to use additional powerful services:

    • MetaTrader 5 AppStore - users can buy MetaTrader 5 apps or download them for free directly from the terminal. MetaTrader 5 AppStore offers hundreds of various applications and their number is constantly increasing.
    • Signals - users can subscribe to trading signals provided by professional traders and make profit. Trading operations are automatically copied from provider's account to subscriber's one. The service also allows selling your own trading signals. A trading account can be connected to the monitoring system in a few clicks.
    • Jobs - a freelance service allowing customers to securely order the development of MetaTrader 4 and 5 applications. The orders are executed by experienced programmers. The service also allows you to make profit by developing programs ordered by customers.

  4. Terminal: Added information about margin charging rates for various order types, as well as the list of spreads that may include orders and positions for the symbol, to the trading symbol data dialog.

    Margin Rates:

    A multiplier for calculating margin requirements relative to the margin's main amount is specified for each order type. The main amount of margin is calculated depending on the specified calculation method (Forex, Futures, etc.).

    • Long positions rate
    • Short positions rate
    • Limit orders rate
    • Stop orders rate
    • Stop-Limit orders rate

    Calculation of margin requirements is described in details in the client terminal user guide.

    Spreads:

    The margin can be charged on preferential basis in case trading positions are in spread relative to each other. The spread is defined as the presence of the oppositely directed positions at related symbols. Reduced margin requirements provide traders with more trading opportunities.

    The spread has two legs - A and B. The legs are the oppositely directed positions in a spread - buy or sell. The leg type is not connected with some definite position direction (buy or sell). It is important that trader's positions at all leg's symbols are either long or short.

    Several symbols with their own volume rates can be set for each spread leg. These rates are shown in parentheses, for example, LKOH-3.13 (1).

    Take a look at the following example:

    • leg À consists of GAZR-9.12 and GAZR-3.13 symbols having the ratios of 1 and 2 respectively;
    • leg  consists of GAZR-6.13 symbol having the ratio of 1.

    To keep positions in the spread, a trader should open positions of 1 and 2 lots for GAZR-9.12 and GAZR-3.13 respectively in one direction and a position of 1 lot for GAZR-6.13 in another.

    Margin column displays margin charging type at this spread:

    • Specific values mean charging a fixed margin for a spread in a specified volume. The first value specifies the volume of the initial margin, while the second one specifies the volume of the maintenance one.

    • Maximal - initial and maintenance margin values are calculated for each spread leg. The calculation is performed by summing up the margin requirements for all leg symbols. The margin requirements of the leg having a greater value will be used for the spread.

    • CME Inter Spread - the rates (in percentage value) for margin are specified: the first one is for the initial margin, while the second is for the maintenance one. The total margin value will be defined by summing up the margin requirements for all symbols of the spread and multiplying the total value by the specified rate.

    • CME Intra Spread - two values for margin increase are specified: the first value is for the initial margin, while the second is for the maintenance one. During the calculation, the difference between the total margin of A leg symbols and the total margin of B leg symbols is calculated (the difference in absolute magnitude is used, so that it does not matter what leg is a deductible one). According to the type of the calculated margin, the first (for the initial margin) or the second (for the maintenance one) value is added to the obtained difference.

    The specified margin is charged per spread unit - for the specified combination of positions. If any part of the position does not fit the spread, it will be charged by an additional margin according to the symbol settings. If the client's current positions have the volume the specified combination fits in several times, the charged margin is increased appropriately. For example, suppose that A and B symbols with the ratios of 1 and 2 are in spread. If a client has positions for these symbols with the volumes of 3 and 4 respectively, the total margin size is equal to the doubled value from the spread settings (two spreads: 1 lot of A and 2 lots of B, 1 lot of A and 2 lots of B) plus the margin for the single remaining A symbol lot.

    Spreads are described in details in the client terminal user guide.

  5. Terminal: Fixed the depth of market freezing when the best bid price is higher than the best ask one.
  6. Terminal: Fixed setting the fill policy type for market trade requests depending on the trade symbol's execution type and allowed filling modes.
  7. Terminal: Fixed display of incorrect SL and TP values in the position open dialog in case there is a position with placed SL and TP levels and the levels are placed "In Points". Incorrect SL and TP level values in points have previously been inserted to these fields. Beginning with the new build, the values in the above mentioned case are displayed in prices regardless of the level placing mode.
  8. Terminal: Fixed occasional incomplete display of the trading history for the current day.
  9. Terminal: Reduced memory consumption during MQL5 Code Base and MQL5 Market operation.
  10. Terminal: Fixed working with context menus when using touch screen devices powered by Microsoft Windows 8 or higher.
  11. Market: Added product activation confirmation dialog displaying the number of remaining activations.

    Each application purchased in MetaTrader AppStore is additionally protected, so that it can be launched only on the PC it has been downloaded to during the purchase. Generation of an encoded copy is called activation. Each product can be activated at least 5 times on different hardware. Sellers can increase the number of activations at their sole discretion.

    The new dialog protects users from wasting activations by informing that their number is limited.

  12. MQL5: Fixed crash when initializing primitive type arrays by a sequence.
  13. MQL5: Fixed errors when working with #ifdef/#else/#endif conditional compilation macros.
  14. MQL5: MQL5 language compiler moved to MetaEditor. The compiler will be available for download as a separate .exe file.
  15. Signals: Added information about a signal, to which an account is subscribed, to the Navigator window:

    If the account is subscribed to the signal, the appropriate icon with the signal's name is shown for it. When hovering the mouse cursor over the name, the subscription's expiration date is displayed. The context menu contains commands for viewing the signal and unsubscribing from it. The latter one is displayed only if the appropriate trading account is currently active in the terminal.

    The subscription icon makes working with signals more convenient.

  16. Signals: Added legend for equity, growth, balance and distribution graphs. Also, marks displaying funds depositing and withdrawal have been added to the equity graph. When hovering the mouse cursor over the balance operation triangle, a tooltip with the operation sum is displayed:

  17. MetaEditor: Fixed the loss of focus in the code editing window that occurred after the first compilation.
  18. MetaEditor: Fixed automatic scrolling of the compilation window to the first warning if there are no errors.
