In my opinion the best broker so far that offers MT5.
I am planning on to switching to MT5 soon, now i am still trading with Ritmic Pro.

Volume Clusters on Metatrader 5


If you are watching for volume traded at each tick, this is the tool I use.
I only run it on my home computer to verify if the program I wrote on volume cluster analysis is working.

For improved latency and reliable connection, I run my trading program on a dedicated server in Chicago.
I can always connect to it through a remote desktop app on my desktop or ipad.

I've been using MT5 with CQG data. I like it but there are a couple of issues.
Tried a non trading EA which creates a "custom symbol" renko chart - it dose not auto update.
DOM would be better if it had volume traded at each tick.

With limit orders, sometimes when price reaches them, I'm watching the time and sales go through. Down in the tool box I'm watching my pending order go from green to yellow, but rather than filling, it goes back to green.
Not sure where this execution latency is happening in the chain (possibly my computer/internet).

They are the only one right now offering futures trading on metatrader5 in the US.
I hope to see more brokers offering the platform. Competition is always healthy and good for the day traders.

No, the broker sets the chart timezone on the MT5 server.

As already answered you cannot change the built-in timezone. But you can write an indicator to display any timezone/ETH/RTH you want.

MT4 example for SP500 cash with daily bars and ETH sessions:

The same indicator switched to hourly bars:

Can you post the ETH/RTH indicator for MT4?

Can you post the ETH/RTH indicator for MT4?

Yes, I can. The indicator is part of my framework (@see https://github.com/rosasurfer/) and consists of multiple files (indicator, libraries and scripts). With the scripts one can switch per keyboard hotkey back and forth between the following SuberBar candle periods:

PERIOD_H1
PERIOD_D1_ETH: that's daily with ETH markers as shown in the screenshot
PERIOD_D1
PERIOD_W1
PERIOD_MN1
PERIOD_Q1: quarterly

While all sources are freely available (@see SuperBars.mq4) one cannot simply take the single file to compile the full indicator. I will extract just the indicator and provide a compiled version with dependencies for download here. As I'm quite busy at the moment it will take me 1-2 days.

Once that's done I will explain how to configure instruments and timezones (the indicator needs to know the server timezone to correctly calculate times). Probably in a new thread.
