Dedicated Financial Trading Platform for Personal Computers

MetaTrader 5 is one of the most respected trading portals for personal computers. Following the reputation of its predecessor (Meta Trader 4), this package provides real-time access to numerous financial markets. Trades can be executed at the click of a button and all information is regularly updated via streaming software located in the cloud.

Functionalities and Features

MetaTrader 5 enables investors to immediately access all of the major market sectors. Examples here include commodities, indices, CFD positions and currency trades (the Forex marketplace). Real-time charting capabilities offer clear views of the movements of an underlying asset while prices are found on the left-hand side of the screen. Other tools include a live news feed, access to community forums and the ability to view past trading history. Trading volumes, high/low ratios and the current balance of the investor enable the correct actions to take place at the most appropriate times.

Other Tools

Many users have stated that the streamlined nature of MetaTrader 5 is superior to similar systems. Orders can be placed with the click of a button and an Auto Trade feature is great for anyone who hopes to take advantage of the latest market movements.
