This also saves you lot of time that you might need to spend in learning and getting experience of forex trading with the real trading. You get to learn to handle situations in a very short period of time without risking your savings.

If you take it in a let go way and it may prove to be hassle when you suddenly move to the real business. This may happen because you are not used to have patience and while you were using Forex Tester 1.10 you never had to be cautious of big losses and this habit may bring big problems at the time of real business.

"I have to say that this is a great tool. Even though I`ve only been demoing the trial version I`m glad I found it. So far I haven`t found anything similar that didn`t require high monthly fees just to get in the door and try or so overly complex that you feel you need to be a programmer just to take your first step!

This allows someone, in a painless manner, to train and test out their theories and strategies without being chained all night to the London session or so tired and beat up afterwards that the New York session feels like nine rounds with a boxer breathing in your face!"
I have been using your software for about a week now, and I must say I don`t know how I could`ve lived without it! I`ve been trading Forex for over four years, and I did try to keep track of trades on PAPER; but there`s always that issue of did price `really` hit my sell limit, and did price `really` hit my target? At what exact time? You can fudge it too easily. Plus, when looking at past data on your trading platform, you can already `see` what price has done and it DOES sway you, even if you tell yourself to just take it bar by bar -- there`s always the time when you forget and scroll too far ...

With your software, there`s NO view into the future in Testing Mode, and to be honest, I`ve learned a lot more about price action JUST WATCHING it run! It`s been the best money I`ve ever spent on software for (forex) trading!

I am able to see yearly, monthly, weekly, daily pivots AS THEY FORM (just remember to add enough data prior to your starting test date for the pivots to calculate) and it`s great!!!!

I love the order placement with its ease of use ... I was a bit scared of trying it but if I can figure it out, anyone can!

So, in closing - thanks for a great product!
I stumbled across Forex Tester and decided to give it a try. I`m very pleased that I did.

With it I have been able to do hours and hours of demo trading. Because I can control the speed of the simulation, I can do more demo trading with it than I can with a real demo account (an account that is constrained to real market speed). And I can practice on weekends when the market is closed.

I`ve already been able to test more than 5 systems and I`ve learned all kinds of techniques using it - finding support and resistance, drawing trend lines, practicing Fibo retracements and extensions.

It has all the studies I could ask for - moving averages, stochastics, MACD, bands, RSI, etc.
The interface is very similar to MetaTrader 4 which is the software I first began using to demo trade, so it was very easy for me to learn.
With a few good books, a solid connection to a good training community via a good Forex forum and Forex Tester software, I have everything I need to move toward success in my trading.

I`m already seeing improvements in my ability to pick good trades, avoid simple newbie mistakes and I`m seeing my simulated account growing already.
Best money I`ve spent on my Forex education. I can`t recommend this software highly enough.
My only complaint is that I can`t find a good, cheap (preferably free) source of up-to-the minute data to feed into Forex Tester so I can practice on recent data.
Forex Tester does provide years of tick data for most of the currency pairs going back to the early 2000s. But it only comes up to around Jan 10, 2008. The data is updated quarterly, so I`ll eventually have data from Feb and Mar 2008, but I`d like to have it now.
None the less, that`s a tiny problem given the years and years of data on which I can practice.

Excellent program!!
