New Socialization Features In MetaTrader 4 And MetaTrader 5 Mobile Platforms

LIMASSOL, Cyprus, January 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

In January 2013, MetaQuotes Software Corp. has released updated versions of MetaTrader 4 iPhone and MetaTrader 5 iPhone mobile trading platforms. Their main feature is the ability to securely communicate with any trader via the internal chat. For MetaQuotes Software, it is another milestone in the campaign aimed at socializing their software products.  

The new chat in MetaTrader mobile terminals has become a reliable means of communication between traders and a great alternative to paid SMS messages. Such messaging is completely secure due to the use of MetaQuotes ID - a unique and randomly generated identifier. Each user automatically receives MetaQuotes ID when installing the mobile version of the terminal. This allows you to identify a trader without examining his or her personal data.

Thus, the system is secure for users, as only MetaQuotes IDs are used everywhere, while traders' personal data is never disclosed.

Besides, the advantages of the chat in MetaTrader for iOS include instant delivery and free messages. The most important thing is that users are not tied to their phone numbers, as they can always use their MetaQuotes IDs on any device.

Brokers will soon receive new features allowing them to establish a secure communication with traders. They will be able to send service messages to mobile devices of their clients using push notifications. However, this will be possible only if traders specify their MetaQuotes IDs in their profiles on brokers' web sites or when registering trading accounts. Otherwise, no messages from a broker will be received.

"We have provided traders with the convenient and secure chat, and brokers will soon receive a reliable tool for sending service messages to their clients," says Gaies Chreis, COO of MetaQuotes Software Corp. "Moreover, socialization of our programs continues. We intend to introduce more elements of social networking services in them. The very essence of modern trading is changing right in front of our eyes. It is not only buy-sell relationships and analytics already, but an entire ecosystem of services. A striking example is our representing a powerful hub for traders and developers offering their solutions. The forum, subscription to trading signals, MQL5 Market applications store, Jobs service for submitting and fulfilling development orders, Automated Trading Championship, Code Base library - traders of various skill levels will find there everything they need."
