The MetaTrader 5 (MT5) platform is the next generation of trading platforms to roll off the production line at MetaQuotes. MT5 is the direct successor of the most well-known and popular trading platform, MetaTrader 4 (MT4) – that was designed for forex and futures trading.
To take your trading to the next level, you should consider upgrading to the MT5.
MetaQuotes has integrated all of the features that made MT4 the excellent trading platform that it is, and improved them. If you choose to trade on the MT5 platform with Vantage, you can take advantage of the latest version of MT5 which has activated all Expert Advisors (EA), signals trading and most importantly, includes the capability to hedge positions.
This latest version of MT5 makes all the difference to professional traders, as many brokers running older versions of the platform do not allow you to hedge your positions. Vantage’s tight and long-standing relationship with MetaQuotes means that we’re always at the forefront of developments, and offering the ability to hedge in MT5 is no different.
Vantage has located our NY4, MT5 Equinix Server in New York for a reason. This is due to the location of our primary liquidity providers, and that means all our clients can experience fast trade executions when they trade on MT5 through Vantage.
While retaining the familiar look and feel of MT4, MT5 is truly a next-generation multi-asset trading platform.
MT5 offers a full set of trading orders for flexible CFDs on forex, commodities and indices trading, with access to Vantage is liquidity provider’s market depth at your fingertips. MT5 allows you to see where the big orders are sitting on the price ladder, and let you plan your trading strategy accordingly.
MT5’s addition of a two position accounting system (netting and hedging), allows traders to maintain full risk management control of their account, in their own way. At Vantage, we understand how important the management of risk is, and we don’t want our clients’ trading platform to be an unwanted restriction to their trading journey.
Trading on MT5 with your Vantage account can help you to gain an edge when trading. Lightning-fast execution speeds, low spreads, and even more powerful charting capabilities than MT4 are just some more of the features that make MT5 so powerful.
MT5 allows traders to use more timeframes on an unlimited number of charts in their watchlist. Have you ever wanted to see how your trading strategy would run off the 12-minute charts, but been restricted by MT4’s limited timeframe capabilities? With 21 timeframes and one-minute history of quotes available on MT4, moving to MT5 is the smart choice for flexibility.
MT5’s inbuilt system of alerts are also designed to help traders keep track of all the important market events, without having to consult an external economic calendar. You never have to miss a tick when you’re trading on MT5.
If you choose to run MT5 Forex trading signals, what you’re doing is requesting the software to monitor the trades of other expert/professional traders, and then having your own MT4 terminal copy what the target trader is doing.
Usually, you would pick a professional trader to receive trading signals from, and by using the MetaTrader Market, the professionals have already been screened for you. All MT5 trading signals available have been thoroughly tested before being pre-approved by the platform’s developers, meaning all the trading signals available to trade through your MT5 platform are valid.
Don’t forget that an advanced MQL5 programming language has been implemented, for an even better EA and automated trading adoption experience.
Most importantly, making the switch from MT4 to MT5 is seamless. If you’re a new Vantage client then simply fill in the information required to open an account and you will be able to use MT5 within minutes.
If you’re already a client of Vantage who trades on the MT4 platform, simply log into your client portal, click open an additional account, and select MetaTrader 5 (MT5). You can take your trading to the next level on MT5!
The MT5 mobile app allows you to connect to the Vantage servers on the go, 24/7, and for free. But if you’re looking for an on the go solution that is a little more powerful, remember, you can use the MT5 WebTrader platform without downloading or installing additional applications. What this means is that you are able to trade from any browser and operating system anytime, anywhere. All you need is reliable Internet connection.
