It's the 1st of June - the date of official release of the new MetaTrader 5 trading platform. Now you can purchase the new online trading platform for your company, expand into new markets and offer even more services to your clients.

MetaTrader 5: Official Release

Development of the new platform started 3 years ago (development of MetaTrader 4 took 20 months). From the outset, MetaTrader 5 was conceived as a multi-market platform that would be able to operate on forex and on any equity market. This was a new problem for us, but we tried to solve it the best way.

Work on the new platform started from scratch, and for these three years we have written 1.1 million code lines (MetaTrader 4 consists of 0.6 million lines). That's why the result is so impressive: the new MetaTrader 5 has new trading system, distributed architecture, high performance and flexibility. This is a new terminal for traders with an extremely powerful environment for developing Expert Advisors - MetaQuotes Language 5 (MQL5). Generally, the new platform excels MetaTrader 4 in all terms.

Even at the platform design stage, we understood that serious testing would be needed. First, the platform was subject to severe testing within our company. Then we launched the program of multi-stage testing. It started in September 2009 and was scheduled for 5 months. However, this was not enough, and we decided to extend the testing period till June 1. As a result, today we are pleased to present you and your customers the convincingly stable and highly functional platform.

While working on MetaTrader 5, we kept consulting with different brokerage companies and stock exchanges. In April 2009, we held a three-day workshop inviting representatives of brokerage companies from all over the world. This workshop was held to discuss problems of the trading platform development and different aspects of using MetaTrader 5. This meeting brought many benefits to our development team enabling them to best implement brokers' wishes.

"We've done a great job over the last three years, and we're planning to do even more. I hope brokers and traders will appreciate our efforts, and MetaTrader 5 will be a new standard on financial markets," - Gaies Chreis, company director.

We in MetaQuotes Software Corp. do our best to develop stable and powerful software and to actively promote it. Lately we've launched the - a specialized website for Expert Advisor developers. The website already features articles on MQL5, hundreds of Expert Advisors and indicators. This year we're going to hold the 4th annual Automated Trading Championship 2010 for promoting the new programming language MQL5.
