    Dear All,

    Any free mechanical trading platform to use with FXCM? prefer using java or c#.

    Iam a FXCM client. I have heard that their Strategy Trader ( mechanical trading platform supporting C#) is going to phase out.

    I guess this because FXCM have partnered with NinjaTrader and NinjaTrader view StrategyTrader as a competition.

    Ninja Trader is not a free product though, and I am a newbie starting out.
    Are there any free alternatives first before moving on to the more professional solution.

    You can open an FXCM account and connect it to NinjaTrader (free non live trading version) and use it until you are ready to execute live trades.
