The software platforms we will be looking at are;

For each software platform, I will start with a brief description, followed by a pros and cons list, and then my personal opinion on the software in the form of a rating out of 5.

By the end of this section, you will understand what each piece of software offers, what makes them unique and a little bit about how they work, hopefully helping you make an informed decision on what software would best suit you.

First off, let’s go through what Forex charting software actually is...

Trading software facilitates the trading and analysis of financial products, such as stocks, options, futures, or currencies.

Brokers will normally provide their clients with trading software to place trades and manage their accounts, however, with a broker’s own software, you normally have to open an account for access; with the software platforms we will be reviewing, you do not!

The software may be downloadable and launchable from a desktop or mobile device, or it may be web-based, where the trader accesses the software via a website they log into.

Traders can also purchase third-party trading software that supplements or enhances the software provided by brokerages. These are basically upsells with more indicators and extra help and maybe even news insights, we will get into why you may not even need all these extras later on in the blog.

NinjaTrader review

NinjaTrader was founded in 2003 and the company offers analysis software and brokerage services to its clients. Its primary function is as charting and technical analysis tool however its brokerage service has increased in popularity over the past few years.

If you’re looking for smoothness NinjaTrader is not the platform for you, even though it provides a great variety of technical analysis tools its interface is famous for being fairly clunky and busy, making it hard to navigate.

I also had problems with the setup when testing this software out, as to receive the download for the chart software you have to enter your email. However, I had to wait for over an hour for my download to be sent, which meant I was missing out on some good trades!

Overall, I would rate NinjaTrader a ⭐️⭐️⭐️ as its platform gives you the basics for free, but the design could be improved and so can the service.

Finviz review

Finviz is a fully web-based stock screener that provides various charts and graphs on a variety of different data points, this software is mainly used for CFD and equity analysis as it provides technical and also some fundamental indicators and information on company performance.

As someone involved in the investment industry, I would score Finviz as a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, due to a plethora of information and also additional features like a portfolio tracker, however, from the eyes of a beginner it can be very complicated without a lot of information or learning materials.

What stops it from becoming a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ is even though it gives you insights into economies it doesn’t give you huge ideas about the forex market plus there is a lack of actual analysis tools and is probably best used alongside the next software I will review which is…

TradingView review

TradingView is a powerful stock analysis tool, providing a huge range of tools investors can use to learn more about the markets. Some of TradingView’s most used features include its fully operational mobile app, wide range of screening criteria, custom script incorporation and much more.

In addition, TradingView offers news feeds associated with each asset, articles to read, real-time market data, and even livestreams with professional traders to improve your skills. Paper trading accounts are also available to help you master TradingView’s wide selection of tools.

Although TradingView’s content can be overwhelming for newer traders and investors, the platform remains among the most impressive research hubs on the internet.

Its main draw is the vast number of on-chart indicators, analysis tools, and editing software. TradingView’s charts are completely editable and allow you to set them up as busy or as plain as you want.

TradingView gets a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from me, not only is it what I use for my stock and currency technical analysis but the sheer editability of the charts and the insight through company earnings data and other fundamental tools make it one of the most comprehensive analysis tools on the web!

Navigating the complex world of Forex trading requires not only skill and intuition but also the right tools at your disposal. With the insights from our review of NinjaTrader, Finviz, and TradingView, you are better positioned to choose a platform that aligns with your trading style and needs. Each software brings something unique to the table, from detailed technical analysis and customisable charts to comprehensive market data and educational resources. As you continue to explore these powerful tools, remember that continuous learning and adaptation are key to trading success.
