The new MT5 isn’t anything revolutionary but brings a nice new set of features:

  • Higher performance and outstanding speed
  • Two new pending order types: Buy Stop Limit and Sell Stop Limit
  • Aggregation of open positions
  • Advanced built-in reporting on all trading activities
  • Improved Metaquotes programming language, MQL5, for greater flexibility in creating Expert Advisors (EAs).

Co-founder of the Alpari Group and CEO of Alpari (UK), Andrey Vedikhin said, “Metatrader 5 is the highly anticipated next generation of trading platforms and we are proud to enable our clients to be among the first to try out its unique capabilities.”

There’s of course the very annoying issue of MT4 EAs not being compatible with MQL5 and hence will need to be rewritten.
