MetaQuotes, the Russian software company known for its online trading platforms MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5, has announced a number of upgrades to its MT5 terminal.
Investors and traders using MT5 are now able to detach financial symbol charts from the trading terminal window in a way that is convenient when using multiple monitors. Users may set the main platform window on one monitor to control the account state and move your charts to the second screen to observe the market situation. By disabling the Docked option in its context menu, the user is able to detach a chart from the terminal and then move the chart to the desired monitor.
“A separate toolbar on detached charts allows applying analytical objects and indicators without having to switch between monitors. Use the toolbar context menu to manage the set of available commands or to hide it”, the announcement said.
Regarding the built-in chats, the tool now supports group dialogs and channels so that users can communicate with colleagues and friends at MQL5.community without visiting the website.
Users can now use MetaTrader 5 to conduct private discussions with a group of people in a unified environment without switching between different dialogs and create channels according to interests and languages.
“Group chats and channels can be public or private. Their creators decide whether it is possible to join them freely or only by invitation. You can also assign moderators to channels and chats for additional communication control.”
Additionally, the platform has added support for extended volume accuracy for cryptocurrency trading with the minimum possible volume of trading operations being 0.00000001 lots. The market depth, the time and sales, as well as other interface elements now feature the ability to display volumes accurate to 8 decimal places. The minimal volume and its change step depend on financial instrument settings on the broker’s side.
MetaQuotes also added the tab of articles published on MQL5.community to the Toolbox window, enabling users to access more than 600 detailed materials on the development of trading strategies in MQL5 directly in the terminal.
Other upgrades include support for extended authentication using certificates when working under Wine, a fixed display of the market depth when it is limited to one level, a fixed terminal freezing in case of a large amount of economic calendar news, and a “Save As Picture” command on the Standard toolbar.
The expansion of MetaTrader 5 continues as FX and CFD brokers gradually announce the launch of an MT5 offering. FCA-regulated broker FXOpen announced MT5 for ECN accounts last week. ASIC-regulated brokers EightCap, FPMarkets, and Go Markets have also recently announced their MT5 offering. CySEC-regulated Broctagon Prime launched its MT5 offering in August. Tools For Brokers, a technology solutions provider for the FX & CFD industry launched the MetaTrader 5 Trade Processor to provide a risk-free liquidity bridge and market making order pool.
