Another three brokers, IC Markets and Hedge Total switched to MetaTrader 5


11 April 2017

Migration of major brokers to MetaTrader 5 is well underway. On April 2017,, IC Markets and Hedge Total have announced the launch of the multi-asset HFT platform.

"It is something we have been patiently expecting for a long time, and I truly believe it will be a game changer for XM", — says Chris Zacharia, Marketing Director of XM Group. "As noted by myself in a previous interview, I feel the predecessor of MT5, the globally acknowledged MT4, is a great platform and has proved itself, but it could only satisfy the needs of a certain audience and that would be FX traders, while MT5 is open to a whole new audience in addition to FX traders. Only judging from the audience it will serve as a multi asset class platform, I would say it's the platform of choice as we speak".
