MT5 Integrates Beaxy Exchange to Provide Spot Crypto Trading

Launched in 2009, several years went by before Metatrader 5 (MT5) was able to surpass its predecessor MT4 in popularity amongst the institutional trading community. The developer, MetaQuotes Ltd, has been building trading software since early 2000 so it comes as no surprise that their flagship platform is consistently at the top of the list of those trusted by professionals worldwide. In fact, Finance Magnates in London just awarded MT5 Best Multi-Asset Platform and Best FX Trading Platform at its virtual conference this year. Up to this point, MT5 users have been able to trade stocks, commodities, futures, CFDs, and Forex – already an impressive list for a single program. With the integration of Beaxy Exchange, the MT5 community will gain the ability to trade 31 spot cryptocurrencies and leverage MT5’s impressive automated trading libraries against powerhouse digital assets like Ethereum, Dragonchain, and Bitcoin.

At the heart of MT5’s success is the online community at MQL5.com. This online portal was built in 2010 and has become a creative hub where bot developers and social traders make the markets move. It also gives users access to a massive free codebase for development, hiring of freelance programmers, and a voluminous knowledgebase on trading. More recent developments with the MT5 community include the ability to utilize cloud services, both to rent a virtual server to host trading bots and to leverage computing resources for testing.

Automated Trading with “Expert Advisors”

Automated trading programs, a.k.a “bots”, are known as “Expert Advisors” on MT5. The platform has its own programming language (MQL5) which allows for the development, backtesting, and optimisation of Expert Advisors. That may sound intimidating if you are not a developer. The good news is there are myriad ways to acquire Expert Advisors on MT5. A user can download certain programs free of charge, hire a freelancer to write a custom program, rent a trading program, buy a trading program, or build and tёest their own with the help of other users, all using their MT5 client or the online portal. The MQL5 Wizard can help beginners get started with trading robots while advanced traders can take advantage of additional tools like MetaEditor and Strategy Tester.
