MT5 was released in 2011 as a successor to MetaTrader 4, still the world's most popular retail Forex trading platform.
MetaTrader 5 is bundled with MetaQuotes Language 5 (MQL5), the built-in programming language for developing automated trading strategies. It supports Expert Advisors (trading robots), Custom Indicators, Scripts and Libraries. MQL5 is an object-orientated programming language which means you'll feel right at home with it if you're already familiar with C++, C#, VB.NET or Java.
MetaTrader 5 is also available on iPhone and Android. Manage your account, trade online and perform technical analysis drawing on 14 of the most popular indicator in one place.
MetaQuotes Software Corp., a B2B software development with offices across Asia, Australia, Turkey and Cyprus, is the company behind MT5. Read their story here.
