Good day everyone! I am a novice trader looking to get myself into the market. I have been doing a lot of research and I know that software cannot make trading decisions for me although it can help me make better trades through analysis. I've read so many of the software reviews on this webpage and there is no clear answer to what is the best software package for the dollar. There are a couple software packages that have stood out from the rest of the pack.... 1. Omnitrader - My father purchased this software back in the 90s never really used it, I can upgrade to omnitrader 2006 for $149 2. Tradestation 3. Amibroker I know using these pieces of software require knowledge of TA, which i have been studying about through books and the internet. The style of trading I am going to use is swing trading... Can anyone please make some recommendations on what software I should purchase...I am leaning towards omnitrader because it has been in business for such a long time and it only costs $149 to upgrade to the newest version, although I have heard so many bad things about nirvana...so confused, please help!
