Following numerous client requests, we have improved protection of accounts against unauthorized access in the MetaTrader 5 web platform. The enhanced protection includes the two-factor authentication using one-time passwords and the ability to change master and investor passwords.
In order to enable the two-factor authentication, launch the MetaTrader 5 mobile application. Log in and choose the OTP generator option in the Settings window. The One-time password (OTP) generator can bind all your trading accounts and automatically generate a unique one-time six-digit password for each account. Enter the generated password when logging in to the web platform. Congratulations! Your trade account is now secured.
Moreover, the updated MetaTrader 5 web platform allows you to change master and investor passwords. Take this opportunity to create an easy-to-remember personal ID.
Another important featured innovation is the auto generation of demo accounts. Now, you can launch the MetaTrader 5 Web platform from any browser and start trading Forex, Stocks, Futures or CFDs financial instruments immediately. Launch MetaTrader 5 Web and test all the new features of the popular platform's web version!
Gold-i announced the launch of the Gold-i MetaTrader 5 Gateway. The new solution provides brokers with all the benefits and functionality of Gold-i's award-winning MT4 Bridge. Gold-i hope to satisfy the increasing demand from institutional brokers by migrating their key products to the fifth-generation platform.
The ultra-low latency Gold-i MT5 Gateway launches with access to over 70 Liquidity Providers and provides the fastest and most reliable integration between retail and institutional financial trading systems. The application has been designed to work with Gold-i Matrix — Gold-i's highly sophisticated, modular multi-asset Liquidity Management Platform. This means that brokers using the gateway can aggregate incoming liquidity feeds and offer their own liquidity out to clients.
Gold-i MetaTrader 5 Gateway is the first product in Gold-i's brokerage solution for MetaTrader 5. The Gold-i MAM Pro for MetaTrader 5 – the most advanced multi-MAM on the market - will launch in Q1 2017. Gold-i's Link, RiskDB, Visual Edge and Coverage for MetaTrader 5 will be available next year.
Tom Higgins, Gold-i
"We are very excited about our new integrations with the MetaTrader 5 platform," Tom Higgins, CEO and Founder of Gold-i comments. "MetaTrader 5 is a Nirvana of a system. I believe it will be the platform of choice for retail brokers within the next two years, which is why we are investing so heavily in complex and time consuming product development to migrate our market-leading software to MT5. We will continue to develop our MetaTrader 5 portfolio, with a focus on ongoing innovation in order to help brokers to manage their risk more effectively."
"More and more brokers choose MetaTrader 5, and developers try to keep up with this new trend," Aytugan Khafizov, MetaQuotes Software's COO says. "This is the best proof of the important shift in the balance of power towards the new platform. We thank Gold-i for cooperation and look forward to receiving more exciting solutions from them, which will further enhance the capabilities of the MetaTrader 5 platform."

The MetaTrader trading platforms have been awarded in two categories at the Finance Magnates Awards 2016. MetaTrader 5 has been awarded with the Best Multi-Asset Trading Platform, while MetaTrader 4 has been named the Best FX Trading Platform.
The award ceremony was a final accord of the Finance Magnates Summit on November 15, 2016. This year's event brought together over 2000 financial industry specialists and 90 participant companies, which was a record-high number of visitors. MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 have bested their competitors and gained the most votes in an independent voting procedure. These awards have been chosen by actual market participants and they objectively reflect the worldwide market situation.
This is not the first success of our products at the Finance Magnates Awards: last year MetaTrader platforms were awarded with the Best Trading Platform and the Best Mobile Product. We are proud that MetaTrader is the choice of major players of the financial industry.
The MQL4 language for programming trading strategies leaped 77 positions up in the TIOBE's language popularity index. MQL4 debuted as TIOBE's No.118 in December '14 and has jumped to the 41st position by November '16. It should be noted that the index authors treat both MQL4 and MQL5 as one MQL4 language.
TIOBE is the most popular index of programming languages, showing the language ranking dynamics in addition to its current position. The index is updated once a month showing what languages are becoming more popular, and what languages lose their positions. The rating calculation method is described in details here.
The main criterion is the number of search engine results for queries containing the name of the language. The more often MQL4/MQL5 is requested in Google, Bing, Yahoo, Wikipedia and YouTube, the higher the language position in the index. 77 positions up for 2 years is an impressive leap, which is an evidence of a growing popularity of trading robot development for the MetaTrader platforms.
We want to thank all users who support algorithmic trading and the MQL4/MQL5 languages!
