MetaTrader 5 (MT5) is the new iteration of the industry-leading platform MT4. The company behind both projects, MetaQuotes, has kept all of the positive features of the previous version, while adding a few new twists.

Most notably the charting package is very similar to the old one, which most traders enjoyed. More candlestick timeframes are now available for the short-term traders. Additionally the economic calendar is directly integrated with the charts, with small bookmarks on the time axis in the bottom. Of course, these can be filtered out or fully removed from the Calendar menu.

The MQL Marketplace is also available for MT5, but the old indicators and Expert Advisors, which were developed of MT4 will not work on the new platform. Updated versions are being developed, but some time will have to pass before their number reaches the thousands of ones available for the old version.

Initially MT5 was aimed at futures and stock trading. Thus a client wasnt able to have a long and a short position available at the same time (what is commonly referred to as hedging). This is no longer the case. Now the trading conditions in this regard are dependent on your broker and the trading instrument in question.
