Depth of Market (DOM)

The Depth of Market (DOM) feature on MT5 provides valuable insights into market liquidity and order flow. Traders can view the bid and ask prices for a financial instrument at different price levels, helping them to gauge market sentiment and make better trading decisions. This feature is particularly useful for short-term traders and scalpers who rely on real-time market data.

Comprehensive Trading History and Reports

MT5 offers detailed trading history and reporting features, allowing traders to analyze their past trades and performance. The platform provides comprehensive reports on trading activity, including balance, equity, margin, and profit/loss information.
