Financial software developer FX Blue has made available a separate installer for its QuickChannel developer library for the MetaTrader 5 (MT5) trading platform. Parallel, the developer has added alerts on drawdown to the Account Monitor application, according to data published on the company’s website.
MT5 support has already been available via the MetaTrader 4 (MT4) installer (both platform use the same DLL), but FX Blue has now released a separate installer for the MT5. QuickChannel is a developer library for sending messages between EAs/scripts running in different instances of MT5 within a single copy of the platform. It can be used for trade duplication between MT5 acconts or to communicate between MT5 and other applications.
FX Blue’s latest update of the Account Monitor lets users set alerts via email or SMS on drawdown. The application already offers alerts on equity and margin. Traders cam now send SMS alerts through www.nexmo.com in addition to the existing option to use www.clickatell.com.
The Account Monitor watches account activity publish by users of FX Blue Live, the developer’s web-based service for analysis of trading results. It has support for multiple accounts on any platform supported by FX Blue. The app can be installed on a computer different than the one a trader uses.
FX Blue previously operated as MT4i, but changed its name in June 2014 after it added support for platforms other than the MT4. Its key products, FX Blue Live, supports the trading platforms MT4, MT5, cTrader, Oanda fxTrade, xOpenHub, Vertex FX, and FXCM TS2.
