Introduction to MetaQuotes MT5 Proxy Server

What is MT5?

MetaTrader 5 is a platform developed by MetaQuotes for trading of Forex, Stocks and Futures. It is among the most popular trading platforms, translated in 31 languages. It has native applications for Windows environments, Android and iOS. Emulations are also available for using it in MacOS and Linux Operating systems.

What is a Proxy Server and Why Is Needed

A Proxy server is an intermediate computer (virtual or dedicated server) that resides between the trader’s PC and the broker’s trading server.

Increased Security for MT5 Platform

By completing the standard installation of your MT5 platform on a Dedicated server, you may now start accepting clients who can get real accounts created on your MT5 platform. Each of your traders will be given a hostname or IP address (that of the MT5 trading server) and along with their credentials, they can connect using their MT5 trading terminal.

Load Balancing and Improved Performance

Whilst a Broker may choose not to have a proxy server during the early days of operation, it will become a necessity when then number of real accounts and trading volume increases. Additionally, if you are targeting traders from different areas in the world, then you may decide to deploy Proxy servers near regions where most of your customers are located.

Minimum Hardware Requirements for MT5 Proxy Server

An MT5 Proxy Server can run as a Virtual machine (VPS) or a Dedicated Server. The minimum specifications your server should have are:

  • 4GB RAM
  • 60GB Disk Space
  • Windows Server 2016
