Finteza: Analytics and conversion tracking system for brokers
 

The Finteza service features ultimate website/application analytics, event tracking and conversion control functionality, as well as powerful tools for targeted advertising management in websites. 

Analytics

Add a special code in your website page to analyze your site visits. Within a minute you will start receiving real-time information regarding your website visitors.
You can analyze statistical data according to traditional metrics, such as:

  1. Unique visitors, number of sessions, page depth, refusal rate, geographic location, among others
  2. Statistics on devices, operating systems, languages and screen resolution characteristics
  3. List of visited pages and on-site events (for example, submission of a registration form)
  4. Incoming traffic by channels (referral, search-based, social) and UTM labels

 

Finteza provides various filters for efficient data processing. For example, you want to analyze traffic from Facebook, marked with a unique utm_campaign, with the registration completion action. Select the above variables to view and analyze related data in all report sections.
The specific feature of Finteza filtering system is that it does not apply additional interfaces for audience segmentation. Click on the desired parameter directly in the report, and analytical data
will be automatically rearranged. For example, you may select users who "clicked on the deposit button" in the events table and analyze related statistics.
Finteza features a traditional set of analytical functions. However, our system has three additional important advantages:

  1. Absence of data sampling.
    Data provided by popular analytical services are not always truly reliable. Often, such services analyze only part of your traffic, while extrapolating the results to remaining data. This is not the case with Finteza, in which sampling mechanisms are eliminated, so you receive reliable in-flight reports based on actual data.
  2. Real-time traffic reports.
    You receive reliable real-time traffic reports without delays. You can be certain that you monitor exactly what is happening in the site.
  3. Traffic quality measurement.
    Automated measurement of entire incoming traffic is implemented in Finteza. The system tracks a set of characteristics to separate real users from bot nets and deliberate actions from random behavior, as well as it detects blacklisted referrers. Based on these metrics, you can evaluate the efficiency of your advertising channels. In addition, the report equips you with arguments in advertising cost related discussions with unfair traffic providers.

Advertising in your websites
Finteza's advertising capabilities allow management of banner ads in your own sites and in third-party resources. With the powerful and user-friendly advertising management tools, you can create and launch marketing campaigns without employing IT specialists.

  1. Create an ad zone
    This is your website area, in which the banner will be displayed
  2. Add a code to this zone
    You may insert the code in your own site or in a rented advertising zone
  3. Your marketing specialists create a campaign and adjust it
    A campaign with a reduced banner CTR may need an adjustment. This can be conveniently performed directly in Finteza.

 

In addition to banners, Finteza supports other advertising formats including JPG, GIF, PNG and HTML5. This means that you can use sliders and landing pages for your banners.
The system supports the format of adaptive banners, which allows the simultaneous creation and management of thousands of banners. Furthermore, we can add your preferred formats to Finteza, if they are not currently supported.
In addition to the banner display functionality, Finteza collects related statistical data, including the following variables:

  1. The number of people who viewed the specific banner and clicked on it, as well as the banner CTR
  2. Information on devices, operating systems and browsers
  3. Geographic location and languages
  4. Statistics of separate sites, pages and advertising zones

The real-time in-flight statistics are generated without delays, which are often encountered in other services.

The two functions combined in one system will definitely be useful for brokerage companies. We have already added most of the sites to Finteza to help you get started with the system.

iFX Expo 2018: MetaTrader 5 back office captures the attention of brokers
 

On May 23-24, MetaQuotes Software Corp. participated in iFX EXPO International. Talks with brokers revealed that the back office sparks extra interest among all MetaTrader 5 innovations.

The updated system allows evaluation of effectiveness in working with traders and timely adjustments in advertising policies, as well as provisions of new opportunities, in an effort to increase customer loyalty. This is really an advanced analytics tool with a dash board and business metrics which are familiar to your marketing personnel. At the exhibition, we were often asked: "Is it free?" The question is reasonable since these solutions are usually sold separately, away from trading platforms. In case you missed the expo, the back office is to appear in the next major platform build and the new features are to become available for all existing MetaTrader 5 brokers for free. If you still use MetaTrader 4, then this is another reason to think about switching to the fifth platform version.


Let's recall the features provided by the new system to brokers:

• automation in working with leads, clients and counterparties
• conversions from a demo account to a real one, depositing and trading initiation
• improving trades' loyalty
• evaluating and adjusting the efficiency of marketing channels
• additional verification mechanisms and extended forms for registering trading accounts
• managing client data workflow
• detailed reports on financial and conversion results

Stay in touch with MetaTrader 5 releases - the updated back office is to appear in the next major build!

If you have any questions about the back office, please send an email at bulgaria@metaquotes.net.

 
MetaTrader 4 End-of-Sale
 
The MetaTrader 4 trading platform was released more than 12 years ago. Its architecture was designed under the limitations of that time, due to which it is no longer possible to implement new features that should to meet nowadays increased requirements of the industry or the brokers and traders demands.
 
Therefore, in early 2015 we ended the development of MetaTrader 4. Now, three years later, we discontinue the sales of this software. We have stopped selling MetaTrader 4 platform licenses to new customers, including additional servers to existing clients. However, MetaTrader 4 brokers will be able to order additional White Label terminals and receive comprehensive technical support. MetaQuotes will also keep releasing security updates and bug fixes for the said platform.
 
Additional functions and improvements will only be implemented in MetaTrader 5. The new-generation platform is based on modern architecture and fully supports various functions from the older version (such as hedging and reports on positions). MetaTrader 5 is a high-performance scalable platform which supports operation on multiple markets, including Forex, CFD, stocks, futures, metals and cryptocurrencies. A large-scale infrastructure comprising of third-party solutions has already formed around MetaTrader 5. Technology companies,such as Gold-i,oneZero, PrimeXM and Tools For Brokers among others, have adapted their products to MetaTrader 5 and offer various solutions to help brokers with migrating to the new platform.
 
Synthetic symbols and support for Anti-DDoS providers have been recently added to MetaTrader 5. More important updates featuring fundamentally new opportunities for brokers will be available soon. Having all of the above in mind, we have decided to stop offering the outdated platform, which cannot be any further developed."
 
Interview with Mr. Emre Peser in the TV SHOW "In Development"
 
"The hottest assets this year are definitely the cryptocurrencies. Two years ago, binary options were some of the new products on the market, and this year we see that there are many exchanges based and market cryptocurrencies. "It said the founder of MetaPenta Software Emre Peser in the show on Bloomberg TV Bulgaria" in development " with leading Veronica Denizova.
 
He pointed out that the US economy as well as that of the EU are performing very well and, as a result, financial instruments are rising. "Over the last six months, we have seen assets rising fast. But if the financial instruments continue to grow, perhaps even 3 months later in the New Year, we will see a peak in prices reaching. "
 
In his words, then market dips can be expected. "Nowadays, investors need to be more careful than they should have been a year ago." Mr. Peser has always had hidden risks, especially for strategies. "If we compare the situation over the last two years with this now, the markets are now more stable," he explained. "Perhaps the news about block technology and cryptocurrencies will increasingly reflect on capital markets. But overall I do not expect big surprises in the short run. "

    MetaQuotes Software Corp. opens its new office in Bulgaria
     

    We have opened a representative office in Bulgaria. MetaPenta Software Ltd. will offer its services to regional brokers. The main tasks of our office in Sofia are raising the offered services to a qualitatively new level as well as attracting brokers and financial organizations from the neighboring Balkan countries.

    "The decision for this investment was based on personal observations of the parent company that Bulgaria's economy is actively developing", - says Emre Peser, Head of MetaPenta Software. "There are several brokers using MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 in Bulgaria at the moment. But I also see a lot of potential opportunities to expand the market share of MetaQuotes Software Corp... products. This will be our main objective. The company will work as an agent of MetaQuotes and as such should serve to implement the business strategy and tasks set by its parent company".

    Emre Peser, MetaPenta Software Ltd.

    "We are pleased to offer such a high-tech product as MetaTrader 5 as we are constantly trying to provide the best trading conditions for our customers", - notes Petar Krustev, Executive Director of Benchmark Finance. "We launched the platform as early as 2012, and so far we have implemented all the additional applications, such as mobile versions for iOS and Android. This year, we have switched to the updated MetaTrader 5 featuring hedging. Besides, we are the first ones who offered the Web-based MetaTrader 5 application in Bulgaria".
    "Our customers also prefer the MetaTrader 5 platform", - adds Pavel Nikolov, Manager of the International financial markets department at EuroFinance. "The ability to trade in different financial instruments across a platform is always an advantage, therefore the transition from the MetaTrader 4 to the MetaTrader 5 multi-asset platform is a great idea. After the new platform with the hedging option was offered on the Bulgarian market, the last advantage of MetaTrader 4 has disappeared.
