MetaApi is a powerful, fast, cost-efficient, easy to use and standards-driven cloud forex trading API for MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 platform designed for traders, investors and forex application developers to boost forex application development process. MetaApi can be used with any broker and does not require you to be a brokerage.

CopyFactory is a simple yet powerful copy-trading API which is a part of MetaApi. See below for CopyFactory readme section.

MetaApi is a paid service, however we offer a free tier for testing and personal use.

The MetaApi pricing was developed with the intent to make your charges less or equal to what you would have to pay for hosting your own infrastructure. This is possible because over time we managed to heavily optimize our MetaTrader infrastructure. And with MetaApi you can save significantly on application development and maintenance costs and time thanks to high-quality API, open-source SDKs and convenience of a cloud service.

Official REST and websocket API documentation:

Please note that this SDK provides an abstraction over REST and websocket API to simplify your application logic.

For more information about SDK APIs please check esdoc documentation in source codes located inside lib folder of this npm package.

Working code examples

Please check this short video to see how you can download samples via our web application.

Connecting to MetaApi

Please use one of these ways:

  1. web UI to obtain your API token.
  2. An account access token which grants access to a single account. See section below on instructions on how to retrieve account access token.

Supply token to the MetaApi class constructor.

import MetaApi from '';

const token = '...';
const api = new MetaApi(token);
