Dear friends! We wish you a happy New Year and Merry Christmas! Let it bring you professional success, good health and infinite strength for new achievements. May the coming year grant happiness, good luck and prosperity to you and your loved ones!
The year 2015 was very special for MetaQuotes as the company celebrated its 15-year anniversary. We implemented all objectives and projects scheduled for this year.
The company is rapidly developing and expanding its presence on the world stage. In 2015, MetaQuotes Software has opened three new offices — in Pakistan, Thailand and Japan. Now, we have twelve representative offices around the world! This year, MetaTrader 5 has been launched on Borsa Istanbul (BIST), Moscow Exchange Equity and Bond Market, Brazilian Securities, Commodities and Futures Exchange (BM&F Bovespa), Dubai Gold and Commodities Exchange (DGCX), Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET), South African Futures Exchange (SAFEX), and Pakistan Mercantile Exchange (PMEX). MetaTrader 4 trading platform has been localized in 39 languages, while MetaTrader 5 — in 30.
We have also made a breakthrough in web trading. In September, the company released the MetaTrader 4 Web platform allowing everyone to trade Forex via any browser. This launch has sparked great interest. Currently, more than 160 brokers around the world already offer web trading to their clients.
The range of trading robots and technical indicators available in the Market is continuously expanding — more than 7 000 free and commercial applications are already available for download. Now it is possible not only to buy but also to rent trading robots. The MetaTrader platforms for iOS and Android are optimized with each passing build. MQL5.com is now available in Japanese and German languages. Over 30 video tutorials for traders have been released and the coverage of the virtual hosting server network has been expanded.
Every year we become closer to our clients and users, no matter where they are. We constantly develop and improve our products and services for you and we are not planning to stop anytime soon! We are counting on your support! A lot of exciting events are yet to come. Happy New Year and Merry Christmas, dear friends!
German speaking traders and Expert Advisor developers make up an active core of MQL5.community, while Germany is one of the top six countries whose residents provide the most visits to the website. We have launched the German site at https://www.mql5.com/de to speak the same language with these visitors and reach new audience. The MQL5.community website is now available in seven languages.
Tens of thousands of German users visit MQL5.com to find necessary information, read articles about algorithmic trading, purchase trading robots from the Market, and subscribe to trading signals. We expect even more German speaking users to visit the new localized website. This is an achievable objective, because the unique website content and the broadest source of services for the MetaTrader platforms attract traders from all over the world. MQL5.community provides:
- Over 7,000 trading applications on the Market
- Over 4,000 signals for automated copy trading
- Over 6,200 free source codes in the Code Base
- Over 500 professional programmers to develop custom trading robots
- 580 useful articles to help users create custom indicators and Expert Advisors
- Over 23,000 discussion topics on the Forum
The website interface is available in German, and a professional team of translators is further preparing materials from the Articles and Code Base sections. More localized versions will be launched in 2016. So keep an eye on MQL5.community!
The latest version of the MetaTrader 4 Web platform features new tools for technical analysis. Recently, we announced the upcoming implementation of the MACD oscillator
in order to demonstrate the indicator operation on a separate window.
Eventually, we have decided to speed up and add a few different
indicators in test mode:
- Envelopes oscillator using two Moving Averages to form an envelope on a chart
- Popular Bollinger Bands trend following indicator consisting of three Moving Averages and assessing the market volatility
- Momentum indicator showing price change rate
- Moving Average Convergence/Divergence (MACD)
You can configure the indicators by setting the necessary
analytical parameters, including calculation period and shift relative
to a price chart. Visual settings such as line color, width, and type,
are to be added soon. The remaining indicators will appear in the Web
platform after thorough testing. The future Web platform versions will
also feature the ability to apply indicators to each other.
Stay tuned for more news!

The Moving Average trend indicator is already available in test mode — and this is just the beginning. MACD (Moving Average Convergence/Divergence) oscillator is to become the second tool to be implemented, so that it is possible to assess the operation of indicators working in a separate window.

Thus, web traders will be able to use a similar set of technical tools for quotes analysis as the ones in the MetaTrader 4/5 desktop versions.
Additional new features include:

Finance Magnates Awards (formerly Forex Magnates Awards) event is held for the fourth time already. A winner in each category is determined by an independent two-stages vote. First, participants form a short list of five contenders in each category, and a contender having most votes within the short list is then declared a winner. Thus, the MetaTrader platforms have bested their competitors in the Best Trading Platform and Best Mobile Product categories.
We are pleased that our products are gaining more and more recognition and receive international awards. We will continue to improve our applications providing traders with the most advanced trading technology.
