Investopedia explains 'Forex Forecasting Software'


There is a wide range of forex charting software used for currency forecasting, which varies in appearance and functionality. Users should look for several things in forex charting software, including:




  • Is it free, or if there is a nominal charge? What additional features are made available?
  • What technical indicators are available?
  • Is the software Windows, Macintosh (Mac) or internet (Java or HTML) based?
  • Can you trade from the charts?
  • Is historical data made available through the software?
  • Is the graphical user interface (GUI) pleasing to look at?
  • Is the GUI conducive to monitoring a lot of information at once?


Most forex brokers allow you to open a demo account prior to funding a full account or mini account. This allows users to try out each broker's software during a trial period and determine which software best suits their needs.
