We're delighted to announce the launch of new trading instruments on the MetaTrader 5 platform. 200 new CFDs on the stocks of the biggest companies in Germany, the US and the UK are now available for trading to those with an Trade.MT5 account.
You can find all details regarding the new instruments on the Trade.MT5 account within the Contract Specifications section of our website.
Expanding Our Trading & Investment Offering
This launch represents a small, but meaningful step in a couple of key directions: firstly, we're further amplifying our already strong trading offering, providing you with access to new markets; secondly, it's a specific shift towards promotion of trading on the MetaTrader 5 platform.
This autumn, we synchronised all trading terms between the Trade.MT5 account and our flagship Trade.MT4 account – essentially meaning that you can now trade the same instruments on the same terms, but on a more advanced trading platform. To switch to MT5 – if you wish to do so – you'll need to open an Trade.MT5 account and transfer funds internally from your MT4 account via the Trader's Room.
With MetaTrader 5, you'll get access to all forthcoming instrument offers: CFDs on shares, ETFs, commodities and, of course, cryptocurrencies.
Custom Instruments in MetaTrader 5
As we're adding more instruments, it's worth mentioning an interesting feature that's coming in the next update of MT5 (build 1700), which will be released in the upcoming weeks.
Build 1700 will provide support for calculation formulas for the rates of custom instruments, which will let you construct your own indicative symbol using any available tickers you can find in Market Watch. This feature may be of use for building historical charts of instrument portfolios with percent shares of exposure on different contracts specified in the calculation formula.
