  1. Hi guys,

    I am looking to found the best trading platform of the market, special designated for forex... I am not talking about the broker platforms...

    I am now testing UPDATA, soon I am going to try CGQ, ESIGNAL and FACTSET...

    Any recommendations for a other trading software? Or a combination of several? I am planning as well to use REUTERS 3000 Xtra, or Bloomberg, just not sure about Bloomberg...

    Any comments will be appreciate.

    For FX any currency pair in mind?

    Reuters RET & EBS?
    Currenex, FXALL, Hotspot?
    Trader Tools and a few other allow a blended book
  3. Thanks for you answer, but I am looking for a excelent chart package with access to maket depth (if possible) and news (probably I will need to add), not a platform for trading, my goal is research not trading.
  4. Thanks T482 for your answer.

    As I said in the last reply, I am looking with a excelent chart package, like Updata, Esignal, etc... If you know something better than this please let me know.
  5. I've been testing a demo copy of InvestorRT, havent tried it with live data yet, but it seems very useable so far.
    Also they have lots of tutorial vids on the site.

    It is a trading platform but all the charting/news/research tools are there too

    Maybe worth a look?
  6. Download Ninjatrader for free.
    Connect it free to Interactive Brokers data.
    Backtesting and automated trading available.
