Metatrader 5 support

This project looks great! Is it possible to develop a platform for trading with Metatreder 5? It seems that there are some projects for MT4 (, but nothing for MT5. Do some problems exist with it?

The problem with MT5 is that TradePlatform wasn't tested with it. But nothing really against MT5. I assume, you can compile .mq4 files with MT5 (perhaps you will need to change extension). I'm also not sure about MQL5 function names, for sure there more and some could be changed. Due to low popularity of MT5 we never focused on that. You welcome to inspire us :)

If you have time and skills you can test TradePlatform.NET with MT5 and post results here. In case we realize potential and people need of such compatibility, we will try to become fully compatible.
