Article SMN Weekly
Considering this major news, I have started to look and test MT5 to be ready when brokers will abandon MT4 for MT5.
Today, I have contacted the support of 2 brokers:
JFD: they plan to implement MT5 in first half 2017 and they will communicate to their clients with mass email and on their website in due time.
Trader’s Way: they have no plan for MT5 implementation yet.
I am going to start testing MT5 with FxPro. They offer a free MT5 demo platform… Please note that I don’t have any live account nor feedback about FxPro.
Further discussions about my MT5 tests will be available in this thread.
PS: GiG MT5 experimental tools will be posted in this 1st post. They will be moved in tools thread in due time.
