MT5 web, desktop and mobile
Experience the next generation trading experience with MetaTrader 5. Advanced trading tools, improved charting capabilities, depth of market and more.
Depth of market on MT5
Unlike MT4, where depth of market is available as a plug-in, depth of market is built into the MT5 platform for OANDA. This means you can trade large sizes in a single transaction as well as view pricing and spreads for larger sizes. Our spreads for typical trade sizes start from just 1 pip on EUR/USD. You can easily see the available liquidity for the market you wish to trade, meaning that the smaller your trade size, the tighter the spread we can offer you.
Scan and analyze the intraday markets using the automatic chart pattern recognition tool. Identify support and resistance levels and spot potential trading opportunities. You can install AutoChartist as an expert advisor and see trends on your MT5 charts. We also offer free daily reports to your inbox with market overview and automated alerts.
Create expert advisors in MQL5 to automate your trading strategies. Explore the third party market from within the MT5 client terminal. Develop your own technical indicators to analyze the markets. Back-test your trading strategies and more.
