An official ceremony marking the MetaTrader 5 integration with the Middle East’s largest exchange, Borsa Istanbul, took place on Monday in the Turkish capital. The ceremony was attended by key industry players from Turkey and other Middle Eastern countries according to the announcement, including CEOs, IT directors and top managers of sixty brokerage companies.
Borsa Istanbul was created by the merging of the Istanbul Stock Exchange, Istanbul Gold Exchange and Derivatives Exchange of Turkey into one venue in April 2013. MetaQuotes has begun working on integrating its platform with the exchange since 2013 and a year ago announced that MT5 became compliant with it.
During Monday’s ceremony, Noor Capital Markets, one of Turkey’s leading brokers, sent a request for the first futures contract via the trading platform. Jihad Shannak, General Manager of Noor Capital Markets, commented at the event: “We target to provide our investors the opportunity to do the Forex and the VIOP transactions 7 times faster by providing them MetaTrader 5 also in the Gulf Area where we are established.
