Unlike the MT4, the MT5 platform allows execution of orders in several financial markets and stock exchanges through a single trading account. The platform uses MQL5 programming language and allows automated trading, using Expert Advisors (EAs). Recently the platform has undergone several major upgrades and finally features the hedging option, which increased the platform’s popularity among both forex traders and brokers.

Apart from MT5, Alpari also supports MT4, and BinaryTrader platforms, all of them available in web, desktop, and mobile versions. Headquartered in Russia and mainly targeting clients from former Soviet Union countries, the broker still does not have a license from the Russian regulator (Bank of Russia). Nonetheless, it has units regulated in Belize, Belarus and UAE
