Most Forex traders use MT4 in trading the Forex despite the improved features in METATRADER 5.
  1. Expert advisors designed with MQL programming language cannot work on METATRADER 5. They cannot also be transferred to METATRADER 5. The only way out is to rewrite the codes in C++.
  2. Hedging, and closing of orders irrespective of their positions is not allowed in METATRADER 5 platform. The platform automatically implements NFA rules
These two reasons are the main discouraging facts of METATRADER 5. This is the reason most Forex traders still prefer to trade the Forex with
MT4 rather than trading with METATRADER 5.
