The strategy tester of the MT5 enables the traders to test their strategies in a simulation, giving a more realistic feel of the market.

An economic calendar is available on the MT5, which provides information about the macroeconomic events, which help investors with decisions and responses, minimizing risk from economic affairs.

Traders can also leverage the “Depth of Market” tool of the MT5, which allows them to see the depth of liquidity available in a particular financial market. This tool shows the orders available in a market along with their price.

MT5 offers 3 types of “Fill Policy” including “Fill or Kill”, “Immediate or Cancel” and “Return”. The “Immediate or Cancel (IOC)” is utilized when the order of the trader can not be executed completely. The possible available volume of the order is then completed and the rest is cancelled. There is also a possibility of setting the return, according to which the remaining order volume is not cancelled but executed on a set limit and stop-limit.


The features on MT5 are just the tip of the iceberg of what the platform can offer to the traders, enhancing their experience and making effective, well-informed, and profitable trades. The addition of MT5 in the DIFX ecosystem is an integral part of the platform’s growth and will allow for a more sophisticated trading environment.
