Post by oem7110 » Mon Dec 08, 2014 4:05 am

such as lower spread, rollover rate, ...

Other platform promotes this advantage on lower slippage, does anyone know what lower slippage is about?

Furthermore, is there any ranking reports on market platform?

Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions

I'm a fan of mt4 trading platform that is an excellent trading platform very user friendly, easy and full of useful trading tools. if another trading platform has the feature I would be near a try.

Whlle choosing a trading platform you shold be aware of some of its specifications like:

· Is it free or costs you some charges and what are the features available?
· how charting component are displayed and what technical details they display?
· Can you trade via charts or not?
· What is the order interface? What types of orders are available?
· how convenient is the history option?
· Does the platform allow for backtesting of strategies?
· Is the GUI conducive to monitoring a lot of information at once?
· Does the platform have an API that allows additional software or programming?

They are the basics and choose the one that suits you best
