The MetaTrader 5 platform (MT5 platform), is the next generation of forex trading platform to roll off the production line at MetaQuotes. MT5 is the direct successor the most well known and most popular forex trading platform, MetaTrader 4 (MT4) and to take your forex trading to the next level, you need to make the upgrade too.
MetaQuotes has integrated all of the features that have made MT4 the excellent forex trading platform that it is, and then improved on them. If you choose to trade forex on MT5 with Vantage FX, you will benefit from the latest version of MT5 which has activated all EA and signals trading and most importantly, includes the capability to hedge positions.
This latest version of MT5 makes all the difference to professional forex traders, as many forex brokers running older versions of the platform does not allow you to hedge your positions. Vantage FX’s tight and historic relationship with MetaQuotes means we’re always at the forefront of developments and offering the ability to hedge in MT5 is no different.
Vantage FX 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 means that all of our clients can experience the fastest trade executions possible when they trade on MT5 through Vantage FX.
While retaining the familiar look and feel of MT4, MetaTrader 5 truly is a next generation forex trading platform.
MT5 offers a full set of trading orders for flexible forex, commodities and indices trading, with access to Vantage FX’s liquidity provider’s market depth at your fingertips. MT5 allows you to see where the big orders are sitting on the price ladder and lets you plan your trading 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 FX, we understand how important the management of risk is and we don’t want our clients’ trading platform to be an unwanted restriction to achieving their goals.
Trading on MetaTrader 5 with your Vantage FX account can help you to gain your trading edge. Lightning fast execution speeds, the tightest of 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 watch list. 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 21timeframes and one-minute history of quotes available on MT4, moving to MT5 is the smart choice for flexibility.
Not to mention MT5’s inbuilt system of alert, designed to help traders keep track of all 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 successful 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 credible, safe and secure.
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 FX client then simply fill in the form at the top of this page and you will be able to use MT5 within minutes.
If you’re already a client of Vantage FX who trades on the MT4 platform, then simply log into your client portal, click open an additional account and select MetaTrader 5. It really is that simple to take your trading to the next level on MT5!
The MT5 mobile app allows you to connect to the Vantage FX 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 anything. What this means, is that you are able to trade from any browser and operating system anytime, anywhere. All you need is an Internet connection.
