The increasing adoption of MetaTrader 5, the most recent version of MetaQuotes flagship trading platform, continues, with two new trading providers adding the platform to their offering – DriveWealth and Accuindex Limited.
According to a statement from MetaQuotes this Wednesday, US share trading is now available directly in MetaTrader 5, due to server to server connection, allowing investors to trade DriveWealth’s fractionalized U.S. equities.
Connected brokers with a MetaTrader 5 server are now able to order the MetaTrader 5 Gateway for integration with dealers, such as DriveWealth, to perform trades on U.S. exchanges.
Commenting on the partnership, Robert Cortright, CEO of DriveWealth said in the statement: “I started DriveWealth with the goal of increasing access to U.S. markets and modernizing the way the world invests.
“We have been perfecting our patent-pending Fracker® technology since 2015. We have partnered with fintechs and financial institutions in 153 countries to enable access of U.S. equities for retail investors. Now we are excited to provide investing ability in real-time fractional shares of exchange-traded U.S. equities, via the MetaTrader 5 platform”.
