Best software?

Discussion in 'Forex' started by phenforum, Jul 10, 2005.

  1. Hi everyone, this forum seems to be a great
    place to learn from people who are really
    putting effort in to do this full time.

    I love reading the discussions over tesing
    trading systems etc. and I'm very interested
    to learn more.

    I have one pertinent issue though; and
    that is that I use the Java software.

    It seems pretty limited, and I see people
    mentioning MA (moving average) 50, etc,
    while I only have a choice of SMA or EMA
    in this software.

    What would you recommend as affordable
    software to trade with? I'm 19 years old
    and intend to begin real trading for
    a steady income before 2006.

    Thanks in advance!
  2. SMA (simple moving average) and MA are one and the same. See the "Books" tab above for some recommended TA titles.

    Before talking about "real trading for a steady income" within the next 6 months, why not open a demo account with any forex broker and challenge yourself to become consitently profitable there, for starters? If you want a recommendation, can't go wrong with Oanda FXGame, and then FXTrade, when you are ready.

    You posted under another nick right? I saw another post formated this way. XD

    There is a free version. Unless you trade live, there is no need for the paid version. If you go live, its only $192 for the paid version.
  4. Hi, thanks guys. I've been using a demo
    account at

    Who are FXTrader and why do you recommend them?

    What broker software shows volume? does not. :\

    By the way, I have not posted under
    another nickname.

    there are no volume for Spot Forex dealers. (Oanda, Refco, etc etc)

    Metatrader has a free platform which simulates volume though :
    It has a built-in custom indicator builder and backtester BUT the codes are quite INSANE to master. :D

    only Forex Futures traded at CME ( has official volume.
  6. Thanks!
