We thank you in advance for your contribution on the MetaTrader 5 terminal testing.

Scope Work for MetaTrader 5 Testing

  1. The platform testing will take approximately 5-6 months.
  2. This will be a stage-by-stage testing. New features will be added during each stage. During the first testing stage that starts today, the client terminal will work with Forex only. Later on we will add Futures, equities and options.
  3. The current terminal version comes in without a strategy tester. It will be included later.
  4. Commencing November 2009, the testing of back-office components of the platform will be open to brokerage companies.

We are committed to delivering a truly stable, high-quality product, that's why the testing is evolving into a multi-stage process. We just wish to ensure the highest quality in every stage of the process before we release the platform to our clients.


Best regards,

September 9, 2009 — Milestone Day for MetaTrader 5!

September 9, 2009 marks a major milestone in our effort to make the MetaTrader 5 trading platform available to our clients. We are in the final stage of its development and announce the beginning of its closed beta-testing.


The new client terminal has been sent to some members of the MQL4.community for testing. They will help us find and fix errors that, unfortunately, oftentimes slip through when new products are developed. Being created from scratch, MetaTrader 5 is no exception.

The MetaTrader 5 terminal has been already comprehensively tested in our testing department. However, we decided to conduct this closed testing, so that ultimately the general public gets the most stable and reliable terminal. The closed testing will be followed by the public beta-testing where everyone can participate. Just stay tuned!
