MetaTrader 5 supports the advanced MQL5 (MetaQuotes Language 5), which is the primary programming language for the development of ﬁnancial applications. MQL5 is more advanced and has a faster development cycle (allowing for easier optimisation) than its predecessor, MQL4 for the MetaTrader 4 (MT4) platform.

- Expert Advisors (EAs)- EAs are programmes that make it possible to apply automated trading strategies in the forex market.
