How long it took until you find the right trading software?

  1. A lot of traders talk about the sum some of money they lost until they got stability in their trades, I think that finding the right trading software for a trader is also important and takes time. For me Bookmap is the trading software I have been looking for. What is your experience with finding the right trading software?

    When I started out 5 years ago, I tried a few over the course of a few weeks, liked Ninja7 the most, and stuck with it. That's really all the experience was. No fanfare. So a boring experience, really. :)

    My trading took a huge nose dive when I began to use Bookmap. As soon as I stopped using it I became profitable again
     
  6. You probably needed to learn how to use it better. It helps me to see the direction of the market and where to put my stops and take profit.

    For Options, I prefer CBOE Silexx:

    Best Option software, in my opinion, I have ever used.

    For me it only took 6 months.

    I started trading using Esignal but then realized that it wasn't the trading software making a trader profitable
    so I stopped paying for it and started using the free Metatrader 4 software.

    9 years on and I'm still using MT4 because much of my trading is now automated
    and MT4 helps me in my FX trading but at some stage I will switch to MT5
