On May 22, a new update for MetaTrader 5 trading platform has been released my MetaQuotes - Build 2450. It offers major changes and complete lack of support of 32-bit operating systems. The list of changes includes the following:
  • This update and all next MT5 builds will only work in 64-bit environment.
  • Added Subscriptions services to subscribe to data feeds, hire personal managers, build strategies.
  • Added chart option to hide the chart ticker (the name of the currency instrument and the timeframe).
  • Added chart option to display trade history on this particular chart (without altering the global options).
  • Added new chart color template (Color on White).
  • Added new commands to context menus in Market Watch to quickly open a Depth of Market window.
  • Added highlighting to the currently active chart's frame.
  • Improved display of trade levels on a chart (ticket numbers are now hidden, uppercase letters are used, integer volumes are displayed without a trailing zero, levels are hidden if charts are too small).
  • Added display of symbol description (if set) to the chart ticker line.
  • Added new columns to Trade tab of the Terminal: Change (percentage yield of a trade), Value (market value of the position), Magic (magic number set by an EA).
  • Added support for up to 5,000 symbols in Market Watch.
  • Fixed sorting of chats by update time.
  • Improved speed when working with 50,000 symbols and more.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented position from closing if its volume didn't correspond to the current volume step parameter.
  • Improved speed when working with tick history via MQL code.
  • Added new functions to work with SQLite databases: DatabaseReset(), DatabaseBind(), DatabaseBindArray().

  • Improved the quality of compiled code, which should increase its execution speed.
  • Fixed bugs with compilation and execution of template functions and classes.

  • Implemented multiple changes to the Python MT5 library.
