Programming Language

MetaTrader 5 (MT5) uses a programming language called MQL5, which is different from the MQL4 language used in MetaTrader 4. One exciting aspect of MQL5 is that it allows for "black box" programming. This means that it is easier to program and will likely provide a better framework for users and developers of trading robots and other expert advisors.


MetaTrader 5 (MT5) has two key programming-related advantages over MetaTrader 4. Firstly, its backtesting functions, which allow you to test programmed trading strategies, execute at a much faster speed. This is a valuable feature for traders who need to run a large number of backtests, as it can save them a significant amount of time. Additionally, MT5 allows for simultaneous multi-currency pair backtesting. When combined, these features can expedite backtesting procedures immensely.
