    I am new to trading and want to get started with FX, been reading a few books. Initially I was going to program it all in VBA (As I am quite profficient in it) but quickly realised i need to invest in some charting software & end of day data. I want something with easy backtesting capabilities, ability to add custom indicators and historical EOD data. Looking for one is extremely confusing, so can anyone please help me out in recommending one?

  2. It is spelled software!
    Metatrader is a good place to start for FREE.

    english has never been my strong point. Thanks for the advice, downloaded it and is perfect for what I am looking for for the time being. Very interested in that language they use to program new indicators. Are there any books available that teach you the basics of the language? I am quite good with VBA so not a complete novice but it looks like it's gonna take some getting used to.

    Also is it possible to get index/commodity futures data in there?

  4. Dude:

    Glad I was able to point you in some kind of direction, nobody is going to spoon feed you in this business, I did a simple MT4 GOOGLE, and there is a boatload of stuff, forums....etc.

    Check out the Fx forums like Fx factory too.

    This site is mostly trolls and wannabees.

    Try Ninja Trader for futures data.
