LIMASSOL, Cyprus, Feb. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Today, MetaQuotes Software Corp. has reached an agreement with BM&FBOVESPA, Brazil's leading financial exchange, and gained the right to transmit
delayed market data via the MetaTrader 5 trading platform free of charge.
Market data or, in other words, market quotes are often provided by
exchanges for a certain fee. The agreement with BM&FBOVESPA allows
MetaQuotes to transmit 15 minute delayed market data for all
instruments traded on BM&FBOVESPA via the MetaTrader 5 trading platform. Stock indices (e.g. the IBOV stock index) are the only exception, with
their data being available in real-time.
Access to quotes for financial instruments traded on the exchange is
possible by simply downloading the MetaTrader 5 trading terminal from
the website of the official agent of the Company in Brazil (http://www.emc2trading.com.br). That version of the trading platform has already been set up to
receiving market data provided by BM&FBOVESPA and allows you to work
with such data using demo accounts. This opportunity is available to
all interested users trading on BM&FBOVESPA.
MetaQuotes' representatives believe that the arrangement with
BM&FBOVESPA will help the Company to strengthen its position in the
region. "We are committed to providing traders in Brazil with the most
comprehensive range of services, - says Erico Contenta, Head of
MetaQuotes' Brazil Office. This will allow us to achieve higher
exposure and faster development of our Company in this region".
Strategically, the agreement with BM&FBOVESPA is yet another milestone
towards a collaboration of MetaQuotes, a leader in the Forex software
market, with financial exchanges globally. With this objective in view,
the Company developed the MetaTrader 5 trading platform specifically to
ensure proper operation in stock markets. Relations with well-known
exchanges, such as London Stock Exchange (LSE) and Chicago Mercantile
Exchange (CME) have also been established and their integrations to
MetaTrader 5 are actively in development.
