Last Friday, the new MetaTrader 5 trading platform build 1375 with the Time & Sales option was officially released. The Time & Sales feature in the Market Depth window enables users to view the real-time list of all exchange transactions.

The Time & Sales list provides in-depth trading data, including records on time, direction, price and volume of each transaction. Trade volumes are displayed as a histogram, with a color coding of different trade directions:

Time & Sales provide a detailed view of trading activity on various price levels. An increasing activity of buyers and sellers can indicate the upcoming rise or fall in security prices. Trade volumes and frequency can provide an indication of the current market sentiment and emphasize the importance of individual price levels. Although the Time & Sales option is primarily used by intraday traders, it also provides useful data for long-term traders who prefer to hold their positions open for a few days. In addition to the visual analysis of Time & Sales, the featured data can be exported to a CSV file for further analysis using third-party applications, such as MS Excel.

If you want to evaluate the new functionality, open a demo account with MetaQuotes-Demo and updated your MetaTrader 5. Your broker's platform should be updated to version 1375, in order to enable proper operation of Time & Sales on live accounts.

Recently, one of the domestic Russian brokers Solid Financial Services has launched the MetaTrader 5 trading platform with the hedging system of position accounting. Following RoboForex, Alpari, FX Choice and other companies, SFS has become one of the first foreign exchange market participants to offer traders the ability to perform oppositely directed deals on a single symbol on real accounts in the fifth generation platform.

The new accounting system has been added to MetaTrader 5 at the end of April and has already received positive feedback from market participants. For example, one of the largest international Forex brokers — Alpari has noted the significant growth of the number of new accounts. This confirms that currency traders actively use locking and prefer brokers offering such an opportunity.

The interest in MetaTrader 5 has been sparked among exchanges as well. In less than a year, the number of brokers offering MetaTrader 5 on DGCX (Dubai Gold Commodities Exchange) has increased from 1 to 10, while growing from 1 to 5 on PMEX (Pakistan Mercantile Exchange), including the largest market maker of the exchange — ACM Gold. A number of major international and national stock brokers are preparing to launch the platform in the near future, while the rest are planning its implementation.

Such an excitement among Forex and exchange brokers is quite natural since MetaTrader 5 features the complete set of tools for trading in all financial markets. Powerful trading system, versatile technical and fundamental analysis, algorithmic and social trading, as well as other advantages of the popular platform have attracted traders from the very beginning. The recent advent of the hedging system and the web version allowing traders to work via any browser have dramatically accelerated the process of switching to MetaTrader 5.

Boris Shilov, Chief Executive Officer of Alpari

"Alpari has decided to rely on MetaTrader 5 and turned out to be right" — says Boris Shilov, Chief Executive Officer of Alpari. "In May 2016, MetaQuotes has released the long-awaited MetaTrader 5 platform version with bidirectional trading. This feature is familiar to most traders and maximizes the number of available strategies. Alpari has been the first one to offer the platform version on the market. Our clients are satisfied with the high speed of order execution, while we are satisfied with the increasing number of newly opened accounts. I believe that MetaTrader 5 is a worthy alternative to highly popular MetaTrader 4, and I am sure that MetaTrader 5 will become the key platform for our clients worldwide".

Vitaly Avtaykin, managing director of RoboForex

"The ability to open hedge accounts has been much anticipated by brokers and traders. RoboForex team believes that MetaQuotes has made the right decision by adding this functionality to their MetaTrader 5 platform. We have no doubts that this step will contribute to the shift of industry standards from MetaTrader 4 to MetaTrader 5 in the near future" — states Vitaly Avtaykin, managing director of RoboForex. "This is already confirmed by our actual experience: we are offering MetaTrader 5 hedge accounts since May 26, and they already comprise 54% of the total number of accounts, while their turnover is much higher compared to netting accounts".

"Successful companies always meet the needs of their clients" — states Gaies Chreis, COO of MetaQuotes Software Corp. "We are glad that many brokers were quick to see traders' needs and start offering the MetaTrader 5 trading platform. In doing so, they demonstrated their understanding of market trends and desire to provide traders with the most advanced technology".

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.
