MetaTrader 5 (MT5), Welcome to Darwinex!

8 March 2018
The Market Owl

It’s official – MetaTrader 5 has arrived at Darwinex! 🙂

In this post, we explain this release, and the main differences between MT4 and MT5.

Importantly, we describe what ‘can & cannot be done’ at Darwinex with each of these platforms, at the present time.

Since Darwinex started trading as a broker, (almost 4 years ago now!), we’ve offered our Darwinian family of Traders the MT4 (Metatrader 4) platform, featuring:

  • Advanced Technical Analysis capabilities
  • Flexible Trading features
  • Algorithmic Trading support in the form of Expert Advisors.
  • Ability to engineer custom price-based trading indicators.
  • Trading via the MetaTrader mobile app.
  • .. to name a few.

However, for some time now, MetaQuotes have been placing a strong emphasis on MT5, an updated version of MT4, and have stopped supporting MetaTrader 4 for WindowsXP, Windows 2003, and Windows Vista.

This, alongside us having been actively petitioned for the inclusion of MT5, has ushered all hands on deck!

Therefore, after several weeks of intense work, we have the immense pleasure of announcing that you now have the MetaTrader 5 terminal at your disposal.

It will be available alongside MetaTrader 4 for as long as MetaQuotes permits.

What can I do with each platform in Darwinex?

So you’re aware of each platform’s available features at Darwinex, we’ve prepared a table of comparisons which can be found under “Trading Platforms” tab, accessible via ‘Execution Conditions‘ inside the Darwinex Platform.

We look forward to your thoughts, questions, comments and anything in between!

All the best,
