    hi i just downloaded your meta 5 platform .when i tried to install it.it asked for a pass word and username and server name,which unfortunately i dont have .
    please is there a special proccedure to follow to be able to use the platform?please let me know.
    i also noticed there are some special indicators for the platform to be downloaded and installed on it.how do i take advantage of it?

  2. It’s not mine platform :D

    You can download only MT5 beta ver. If you wish to create demo account find MetaQuotes-Demo in Navigator (left side) in MT5 beta platform, then right click, click on “open an account”….
    That’s all
