Brokers increasingly adopt MetaTrader 5
MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 were developed by MetaQuotes and have become an industry standard for forex trading. Although MetaTrader 4 still remains as the dominant trading platform between the two versions, brokers are increasingly adopting the MT5 platform, which expands demand for the offering and enhances the platform’s features.
As Finance Magnates reported, FIBO Group, a retail forex broker, recently launched online and mobile applications for MetaTrader 5. The trading instruments available on the web and mobile applications include FX pairs and precious metal contracts.
