Is MetaTrader That Bad?

  1. I keep hearing people say that it's programed to work against you!

    I have been demo trading for a year now, and have found MT to be very easy to use. So I am actually looking for a broker with MT.


    A lot of the problems that I have read online are about spikes and stophunting.

    Can you get around a lot of the MT problems buy placing market orders, and just remembering the SL & TP (not entering them in an order).
  2. I think this is what freaked a lot of people out about MT4.....


  3. Wow.....I thought it was just the occasional spike. That sucks!

    I see from one of your other posts in "Make a living trading FOREX" that you use Oanda...I'll have to check them out

    Oanda also has a dealer plug-in, difference is that it is not for rent 0)
  5. Up to this point, I haven't joined the "cabletrader is an Oanda shill" camp. But this thread, and especially that last line, sounds awfully like it was written by the same person...

  7. Thanks Chuck, I'll look into that too! I have quite a few friends who use eSig, but for stocks.
  8. I think they're certainly worth a look, but like puretruth said it's quite likely most marketmakers (including Oanda) operate similar software applications.
  9. lol, is that all you've got to contribute? Hey how about this for a novel idea, try shooting the message instead of the messenger!

    Oh but I forgot, you're unable to have a reasoned and logical debate....try FF they're easily impressed over there, they probably won't even notice your deficiencies :D

  10. Hey now, I've been willing to give you the benefit of the doubt much more than others on here. There was just something about AFJ's response that seemed a bit off..

    But anyway, it's amazing outside, and I know better than to bother feeding trolls. :p
