The latest build of MetaTrader 5 iOS allows you to quickly transfer the SSL certificate from the desktop to the mobile platform. You even do not need iTunes. Simply open your desktop MetaTrader 5 and select the transfer by right-clicking the account in the Navigator window.


Specify the master password of the account in the new window and set the new password consisting of 8 digits to protect the certificate. Next, launch the mobile application and connect to your account. You will be immediately offered to import the certificate — agree to do that and enter the numeric password you have set in the desktop MetaTrader 5. The transfer is complete.

 

The certificate transfer via the trade server is secure: encryption is performed at the client's side, and the password you have set is not transferred or stored on the trade server.

Another important innovation is support for the migration of accounts with open orders, positions, and trading history from MetaTrader 4. If the broker moves your account from MetaTrader 4 to MetaTrader 5, you will see the migration dialog window. The system will greet you, provide you with information on the new platform features, and offer to change your password.

Today, MetaQuotes Software Corp. has released a new version of the MetaTrader 5 trading platform build 1325. The most important feature added is the hedging option, which until recently was only supported in MetaTrader 4. Now the platform permits users to open opposite positions of the same financial instrument.


MetaTrader 5 Now Features Hedging Option

The introduction of the widely demanded hedging option is expected to encourage more traders and brokers to switch to MetaTrader 5. There are no more reasons to continue using MetaTrader 4: finally traders have the ability to use the familiar hedging method combined with all the advantages of the powerful MetaTrader 5 platform.

"Why use two platforms, when you can access all the required functionality in one of them?" commented Renat Fatkhullin, CEO of MetaQuotes Software Corp. "MetaTrader 5 is not just a multi-asset platform, now it offers specific features for different financial markets. The netting trading system is available for exchange traders, while forex traders can use the familiar hedging mode."




Also, the new MetaTrader 5 version allows testing trading robots and technical indicators using real tick history. The new feature increases the accuracy of reports on Expert Advisor testing and optimization thus reducing the risk of loss for traders. Another innovation in MetaTrader 5 is the built-in chat, which allows discussing financial news and trading strategies with other traders straight from the platform.


More Convenient User Guide in MetaTrader 5


The new platform version also features a more convenient user guide with more illustrations, explanatory diagrams, interactive images, and videos. The updated user guide contains less text while providing more useful information.

The latest version of the MetaTrader 5 Android is already available for download on Google Play. One of the main features added is support for hedging. Now, you can open oppositely directed positions on a single currency pair.

Open a hedge account to access the position accounting system that is well known from MetaTrader 4. The system allows you to have multiple positions (including opposite directed ones) on a single symbol. If you have an open position for a certain symbol and execute a new deal, a new position is opened, while the existing one remains intact.

New MetaTrader 5 Android build 1262 features hedging

Apart from hedging, the updated MetaTrader 5 Android platform features the portrait mode. Now, you can browse conveniently through long lists of trading operations, as well as read your mail and financial news.

Please note that hedging is currently available only for opening demo accounts on the MetaQuotes-Demo server. Brokers will be able to support hedging in MetaTrader 5 in the near future.

MetaTrader 5 beta build 1281 featuring the hedging system has been released. Unlike the usual netting system, the hedging one allows conducting multiple trades even on opposite direction of the same symbol. Now, you can use the netting model to trade exchange instruments and the hedging one for currency trading using the MetaTrader 5 institutional platform.

The new system of positions is similar to the widely known system applied in MetaTrader 4. However, MetaTrader 5 offers enhanced order management capabilities: filling orders using multiple deals, including partial fills. If a trader has an open position at a symbol and performs a new deal, a new position is opened. That is the core idea behind the MetaTrader 5 hedging system. The trader can set Stop Loss and Take Profit levels, as well as see the profit level for each of the positions.

Updated MetaTrader 5 trading platform with the hedging system for position accounting

We invite everyone to join the public testing of the updated MetaTrader 5 multi-asset platform. In order to join the test, create a demo account on the MetaQuotes-Demo server and connect to it. The platform will automatically update to build 1281 and you will be able to create a demo account with the hedging position accounting system after setting the "Use hedge in trading" option in the dialog window. If you identify an error, please inform us via the mql5.com forum or create a Service Desk request.

Create a demo account with hedging on MetaQuotes-Demo

While testing, please consider the following:

  1. Subscription to trading signals from hedging accounts does not work.
  2. Trading on a new hedge account works correctly only in MetaTrader 5 build 1281 and later builds.
  3. Some trading robots may trade incorrectly on a hedge account.
  4. Scripts, Expert Advisors, and indicators compiled using the new MetaEditor build will not run on virtual hosting.

Apart from hedging, the MetaTrader 5 beta version features the updated user guide with tons of illustrations and video tutorials. Simply click F1 to get answers to most of your questions and enhance your knowledge of the platform.

With the updated MetaTrader 5, it is no longer necessary to use different platforms for Forex and stock exchange. Now, this is a one-stop solution for trading on a variety of financial markets.

Download the new beta build, try all the new features, and let us know the test results. With your help, we will make MetaTrader 5 even better!
