No Offline chart option in MT5 Chart properties common tab which is not very good but there is a new option to scale the chart with a slider - quite convenient. Also scaling can be done by points per bar as I can see.

The popularity of Metatrader 5 has grown even more in the past months, according to fintech company Metaquotes, as a number of large international brokers adopted the platform and started offering it to their clients.

That's true. I am checking on demo the MT5 just to be prepared for the future as I believe more and more brokers will start offering it. It seems to have cool features, like for instance to save a chart as a png file in an easy way without screenshots etc. Will continue digging deeper into it.


Mt4 chart - properties - save as picture :)

I have written many MT4 EAs. Is there any free utility that can help port the code to new MT5 (MQL5??) syntax? At least if it can point out non-compatible code, it will be very helpful. Any ideas?

Yes, stops send new update and send only update that fix some problems... so 1-2 years and all change MT4 to MT5


I also think it will be step by step transition over the next couple of years. MT4 fans will discover MT5 and maybe move to it if they don't choose another platform.

Well one of the biggest advantages (apart from being free) of MT4 is that there is a huge database of existing programs fro almost everything. By using mt5 you would loose this advantage.

Hi all! No doubt they will work in offering it from more corridors, that is, they released it to the market like improved version of MT4, probably later they can make some adaptations. There are still some defending MT4 because they are already accustomed to it.
I like the style of @NEEnah. To using it to prepare for the future. That's great!

MT4 is fantastic for decentralized, open and highly unregulated foreign exchange market on a global scale. However, it does not check all the boxes as a platform for other markets. MT5 is more advanced, so the big investment is in mt5 to make it more accepted in the market.

If I am not mistaken, MT4 was created initially for forex trading and then brokers started adding more types of instruments there. As far as I know, it also has limitation of maximum number of instruments which does not exist in MT5.
