MetaTrader 5 build 3440: New trading account report

What's new in MetaTrader 5

17 September 2022

Terminal

  1. Added new account trading performance report. It is similar to the already familiar Signals reports in terms of statistics availability and data presentation. The following performance data will be available in the platform:
    • Graphs and tables visualizing monthly growth metrics
    • Equity chart
    • Radar chart which enables quick account state evaluation
    • Trading statistics by instrument
    • A variety of additional metrics for trading analysis

    The report can be viewed directly in the platform, without the need to export it to a file. To open it, select Reports in the View menu.



  2. Fixed options board filling for Call and Put contracts with unmatching quantity or symbol type.
  3. Fixed position selection in the Trade dialog during Close by operations. The error occurred for opposite order lists sorted by any column other than the ticket.
  4. Accelerated platform logging.
  5. Fixed display of comments on custom symbol charts.

MQL5

  1. Fixed CArrayList::LastIndexOf function operation. Previously, it always returned -1 instead of the index of the last found element.
  2. Added new matrix and vector method - Assign. It replaces matrix/vector elements with the passed matrix/vector or array data.
    bool vector<TDst>::Assign(const vector<TSrc> &assign);
    bool matrix<TDst>::Assign(const matrix<TSrc> &assign);
    
    Example:
      //--- copying matrices
      matrix b={};
      matrix a=b;
      a.Assign(b);
      
      //--- copying an array to a matrix
      double arr[5][5]={{1,2},
    {3,4},
    {5,6}};
      Print("array arr");
      ArrayPrint(arr);
      b.Assign(arr);
      Print("matrix b \n",b);
    /*
    array arr
            [,0]    [,1]    [,2]    [,3]    [,4]
    [0,] 1.00000 2.00000 0.00000 0.00000 0.00000
    [1,] 3.00000 4.00000 0.00000 0.00000 0.00000
    [2,] 5.00000 6.00000 0.00000 0.00000 0.00000
    [3,] 0.00000 0.00000 0.00000 0.00000 0.00000
    [4,] 0.00000 0.00000 0.00000 0.00000 0.00000
    matrix b 
    [[1,2,0,0,0]
     [3,4,0,0,0]
     [5,6,0,0,0]
     [0,0,0,0,0]
     [0,0,0,0,0]]
    
    */
  3. Added new matrix and vector method - CopyRates. It copies price data arrays into vectors and matrices.
    bool matrix::CopyRates(string symbol,ENUM_TIMEFRAMES period,ulong rates_mask,ulong from,ulong count);
    bool vector::CopyRates(string symbol,ENUM_TIMEFRAMES period,ulong rates_mask,ulong from,ulong count);
    The copied data type is specified in the rates_mask parameter using the ENUM_COPY_RATES enumeration. The following values are available:
    COPY_RATES_OPEN
    COPY_RATES_HIGH
    COPY_RATES_LOW
    COPY_RATES_CLOSE
    COPY_RATES_TIME
    COPY_RATES_VOLUME_TICK
    COPY_RATES_VOLUME_REAL
    COPY_RATES_SPREAD
    COPY_RATES_OHLC
    COPY_RATES_OHLCT
    The last two values enable the simultaneous selection of multiple bar parameters: Open, High, Low, Close and time.

    If multiple data types are selected (only available for matrices), the order of the rows in the matrix will correspond to the order of values in the enumeration.

  4. Fixed display of Text Label objects. When using OBJPROP_XOFFSET and OBJPROP_YOFFSET properties, a wrong image fragment could be displayed on the chart.

  5. Fixed error when changing a constant parameter which has been passed to a function as an object pointer reference.

    The const specifier declares a variable as a constant to prevent it from being changed during program execution. It only allows one-time variable initialization during declaration. An example of constant variables in the OnCalculate function:

    int OnCalculate (const int rates_total,      // price[] array size
                     const int prev_calculated,  // bars processed on previous call
                     const int begin,            // meaningful data starts at
                     const double& price[]       // array for calculation
       );
    

    The below example contains a compiler error which allowed an implicit pointer casting for reference parameters:

    class A {};
    const A *a = new A;
    
    void foo( const A*& b )
      {
       b = a;
      }
    
    void OnStart()
      {
            A *b; 
            foo(b);  // not allowed
            Print( a,":",b );
      }
    The compiler will detect such illegal operations and will return the relevant error.

MetaEditor

  1. Fixed display of complex number references in the debugger.
  2. Improved MQL5 Cloud Protector. Previously, file protection could fail under certain conditions.
  3. Fixed errors reported in crash logs.


New MetaTrader 5 Web Terminal

We have released a revised MetaTrader 5 Web Terminal which features an updated interface and a redesigned core. The new interface is similar to the terminal version for iPad:
