Ok, so I'm new to the forex and am looking for a good charting package. I'd love to hear your opinions and see what charting packages everyone is using. Thanks for the input! I was using metacharts with interbankfx and fxcm's charting software. Then I switched to xtick Suggest you go to this site since it has a list of companies with fx charting software and description of their services:.
Have you tried the fib calculator at www. I use it because fxtrek's web based charts only give 3 lines. It's a bit of a pain, admittedly, but it does the job.
Right from the source, Commitments of Traders. This one use the same programing environment as TradeStation. But, your are never left alone. Forum member and staff do really help a lot to answer all kind of interrogation. You choose your broker. Personally, I don't want a "no fee" broker as they charge you with the spread.
If your trading daily bar, no problem with a higher spread, but dealing with low scale like 5 minutes, 2 pip spread is the difference between being profitable or not. We are in this game to win money. No friend here, specially from the broker. My opinion, if broker gave me a free tool, he will want something in return. Either with higher fee or by knowing what I'm doing.
This is my personal opinion. Lots of people wants charting software. All in all, MT4 is my favorite because I can change broker without changing software. Either with higher fee or they know what you're doing? They ALL know what you're doing and they find the best traders to copy trades. Meta trader is the best platform and until they've completely worked out the mt5 bugs metatrader4 is the only way to go.
It's widely believed that most traders use charts with candle close in gmt time and it's helpful to see what everyone else does when it comes to candlesticks and patterns. That of course is only my opinion and it's important to find a broker that meets YOUR requirements! Where can I get the best charting software? Hey Tradervlad, Are those freebies? Do I have to open an account to get access to the software?
