Having ported our example moving average crossover MT4 robot to MetaTrader 5 following the recent launch of the MT5 strategy tester we've now taken the next step. We've rewritten the expert advisor using the object oriented framework supplied by MetaQuotes as part of MetaTrader 5. You can take a look at our source code and see if this new way of producing robots appeals to you or not.
MetaTrader 5 has been open for public beta testing for a few days now. After a few trials and tribulations we have now got our first example robot working on MetaTrader 5. If you'd like to know what changes we had to make you can take a look at our MQL5 source code. This is just a quick port retaining the old MQL4 procedural style. We're not using any of the fancy new object oriented features of MQL5 yet.
With the benefit of an apparently hasty translation from the Russian original the MQL4 community website has just published an English language review by one of the MT5 closed beta testers that includes some pictures of the beta version of the MetaTrader 5 client terminal in action.
