OANDA Launches MetaTrader 5 Platform Support

OANDA Global Markets has once again upgraded its trading services, this time bringing in the most popular CFD trading platform in the world, MetaTrader 5 (MT5). This is an updated version of the second-most popular platform, MetaTrader 4 (MT4), and can be used as a desktop client, mobile app web-based platform.


OANDA’s clients will now be able to take advantage of greater market depth, an integrated economic calendar, one-click trading, advanced analysis tools and greater charting functionality. The MT5 platform is also faster, more efficient and more expansive, optimised for forex, CFD and securities trading, be it manual or automated.

These improvements support greater order sizes in single transactions with more clearly visible spreads and liquidity. Moreover, MT5 has more than twice the timeframe options, two more types of pending orders (buy and sell stop limits) and a more efficient and easier to use programming language (MQL5) for the building of expert advisors (EAs), as well as multi-threaded strategy testing, embedded community chat, netting support and much more.

If you want to take all the benefits of MT4 forex trading to CFDs, bonds and more, the MetaTrader 5 platform on OANDA is perfect.
