Web trading is already available in the new Trading section of the MQL5.community site. Later on, traders will be able to trade straight from their broker’s website, because the web terminal can be easily integrated into a HTML page as a convenient widget using iframe.
The following basic functions are already available:
- All types of trading operations: placing market and pending orders;
- Real-time quotes in the Market Watch;
- Customizable price charts;
- 9 chart timeframes;
- Basic analytical objects: horizontal, vertical and trend line, equidistant channel and Fibonacci lines.
The features of the web platform are set to be further expanded.
