How to Pick the Best FOREX Trading Platform for You?Important FOREX Trading Platform Features, charts and annotation tools will be at the top of many lists.
Much of the selection process is a subjective matter. Does it have enough brokers supporting it? Be sure one or more of the brokers in Selecting a FOREX Broker, actively support the platform of your choice. As in the case of brokers, I recommend you e-mail the trading platform vendor once or twice with any questions to get a line on the quality of support. Finally, do the brokers who use the platform support it wholeheartedly or is it just sort of there? Where vendor support is poor is a critical issue. Some vendors -- such as NinjaTrader -- support their platform directly; others -- like MetaTrader -- rely on the broker and forums to support the platform to the user.
Tip: Begin your due diligence with MetaTrader 4. If it is not to your liking or requirements, work next with NinjaTrader 7 or eSignal.
