stian posted: As execution is worse, and broker support is lacking. Ctrader is much prefered to MT5. And unless they make a compatibility layer for MT5 to run MT4 EAs, MT5 will have a hard time getting any dominant market share.
There haven't been any meaningful upgrades to MT4 lately anyway.
mql4 has been updated frequency and the merge to mql5 shouldn't be that difficult when coding in #strict mode. When that day comes, I'll say bye bye to metaquotes for good and start using ctrader/calgo only. cTrader offers fix api for all account holders now. It's best to learn c# and migrate away from mql all together.
I read a lot about the pros and cons of MT5 but I believe it is only a matter of time for MetaQuotes to fix all issues and pick up the missing pieces to make MT5 truly superior. I plan to give it a try at some point in the near future.
