I believe petays was spot on. Metatrader has made some incredible blunders in their product planning. MT5 is a complete debacle because it panders to regulators (no hedging) and ignores it's client base (no compatibility with many years of legacy code). Their actions continue to belie a fundamental arrogance which is often seen in companies which dominate their space for too long.

No matter - help is on the way. I use Pepperstone and they are rolling out cTrader soon. Myfxbook also plans to link with cTrader. cTrader robots are coded in external development environments, like Visual Studio in c#, and they have a very open-source mentality towards developers, unlike Metatrader who is officially opposed even to the linking of external dlls. I have gotten a great deal of utility out of MT4 and am unable to switch to MT5 due to the lack of hedging (I have written 100s of EA's and all need the ability to go long and short at the same time). I am also stuck with the lack of available services due to MT4's closed event loop. I will be switching my activities to cTrader and am looking forward to seeing it adopted by other brokers and hoping that the competition will spur Metatrader to drop the arrogance and hire some real architects and management that will take its products in directions that the market requires.

Are there others developing platforms like cTrader I wonder?

Metaquotes or Metatrader could easily have prevented this PR debacle by temporarily reverting to the old version but methinks they have no customer skills.

..and as if by magic, myFXbook/MT4 connection is back today!

It has returned as mysteriously as it disappeared... Funny that!

OK slight correction... 1 of my 3 accounts is now back talking with myFXbook

I'll be optimistic - 1 is better than none

Matt & All

And I now have Go Markets and VantageFx showing up to date trades but still not AxiTrader.

New problem though The main chart doesn't show due to a Flash Plugin problem?

Fingers crossed

Mike.

'... it seems that they are fixing those errors...' am exactly with opposite opinion, they continue to make even bigger (at the final will be biggest one)


MQ are working on no fix. This is a so-called 'security' measure, with real purpose to kill Tradency - slowly. There was a big announcement by MQ about there Signals service at same time with the new version of 500.

Collateral damage on VPS providers and myfxbook. (Unless may be MQ plan to offer a VPS service also)


'...with real purpose to kill Tradency ...' it is not exact true, they want to kill everything :) In the 500 build such monitoring is named 'against DDoS attacks' - but they ofocourse do not tell what they do when (false)detect it...

Hello Ethan,

I'm using Pepperstone. I don't think they are blocking anything but I noticed that the Auto Update option disappeared from the menu. Does that have to do with the broker or is there another reason? I was trying to add more accounts and I am not able at the moment.

MyFXBook is the best FX service on the web hands down. Please keep up the great work.


of course there is another reason... And its 100% related to 'myfxbook'! not to the brokers... Why not just tell the truth?!!!?

WTF.
