LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Alpari (UK) Limited (“Alpari (UK)”), one of the leading global providers
of online foreign exchange (“Forex”, “FX”), precious metals and CFD
trading services, has launched the live MetaTrader 5 (MT5) platform.

Alpari (UK) offers MT5 on the new ECN (Electronic Communication Network)
account that requires a minimum deposit of just USD200. Traders can use
the ECN account to trade Forex and precious metals. They can choose from
34 currency pairs plus spot gold and silver. ECN trading on MT5 is

With MT5 traders can apply their Expert Advisor (“EA”) strategies in a
highly efficient way. EAs are mechanical systems that allow traders to
fully automate their trading processes and analytical activities to
execute trades more efficiently.
The new MetaTrader 5 Strategy Tester enables traders to test and
optimise EA strategies in minutes rather than hours. In order to
optimise EAs, traders use historical data to find out how well a
particular EA strategy would have performed in the past. This is the
so-called backtesting. Many tests and strategy modifications are
necessary before an EA is ready to be applied to a Live account. The
Strategy Tester gives traders access to a remote computer cluster and
the calculation capacity of thousands of computers all over the world to
accelerate the optimisation process.
Andrey Vedikhin, CEO of Alpari (UK) and co-founder of the Alpari
companies worldwide, said, “MT5 is a highly advanced trading platform,
giving traders a great deal of choice and flexibility. Technological
innovation is pivotal in providing outstanding trading services and we
aim to be at the forefront of the Forex market by offering cutting-edge
platforms and products.
“The launch of the sophisticated MT5 platform and our new ECN account
with spreads from 0 pips truly enhance our offering. It is revolutionary
that with a MetaTrader ECN account, retail clients can now enjoy NDD,
DMA, market depth, one-click trading and no re-quotes – advantages
usually reserved for large-volume traders only.”
