MetaQuotes Software, the developer of the MetaTrader 4 and 5 trading platforms, announced it has updated the web version of the MT5 platform.
The latest version allows users to quickly open a demo account at a brokerage company. This feature is available only on the MQL5.com website.
The option is accessible through the web terminal on MQL5.community. Then the user must write the broker’s name in the account opening window. After selecting the broker server, the user must access the demo account and this is pretty much it.
After years of standing in the shadow of its more popular predecessor MT4, in the past few months MT5 is rapidly gaining popularity among forex brokers, mostly thanks to the adding of the hedging option this spring. Since then MetaQuotes Software has made series of improvements and additions in a bid to promote MT5.
