Recommended FOREX Management Tools

These are a few tools I have found useful to help manage my day-to-day currency trading business:

SnagIt www.techsmith.com

This cool tool allows you to grab a screen or portion thereof and annotate it using a palette of excellent drawing resources. It is useful to grab charts, annotate them, and save them for later study.

Bookmark Buddy www.bookmarkbuddy.net

For an organizing website and specific content, I have found this program very useful.

I have tried quite a few bookmark programs and keep coming back to Bookmark Buddy.

Stickies www.zhornsoftware.co.uk

Electronic sticky notes for using with your trading platform charts. I have several students who would not be without them.

WebResearch www.macropool.com

If you dig deeper into websites and web pages for serious research, this is a powerful program. I used it to replace the old Onfolio, which Microsoft purchased and promptly destroyed.

AZZ Card File www.azzcardfile.com

An organizational resource: electronic filing cards. Great if Stickies is not enough for your needs.
