What is a trading platform?

In other words, the trading platform installs software on the trader’s computer for online trading. Some platforms can be operated through a browser without the need to install on a computer. However, most trading platforms need to be installed on the equipment (personal computer) used for trading. The trading platform also provides a mobile version that can be used on PDAs, smart phones and other mobile devices.

Currently, there are many different trading platforms, but the most popular one is MetaTrader 5 developed by MetaQuotes Software Company.

When opening a real account or a simulated account, the broker will provide a trading platform for free. Brokers will provide customers with their own software or purchased licensed products.

The trading platform has several important functions:

  • The trading platform can display market trends, that is, it can provide quotation information in real-time mode. This systematic classification information will be displayed in the form of graphs. You can select the time interval on which the classification is based. This time interval is called the timeline. For example, if you select a 30-minute timeline, (according to the selected chart) the bars or candles in the chart will correspond to the 30-minute timeline.
  • The trading platform can conveniently allow traders to trade through market orders and pending orders at any time (except weekends or statutory holidays), manage positions, and monitor the situation of the trading account.
  • The platform has tools that can perform technical analysis-thanks to built-in indicators-that can automate trading (using an intelligent trading system based on pre-written algorithms and capable of performing trading operations without the participation of traders).
  • The trading platform provides a variety of tools that can make the trading process easier. These tools include: real-time news from major information agencies, alerts indicating important system and trading activities, account history, creation of trading reports, etc.
