    How do you guys use MT4 !!!

    So been using freestockcharts for a while then switched to TC2000 (more profesional vearson of freestockcharts) they are great.

    Yesterday currency pairs were not working phoned them and they said it will take 2 days to be on line because there forex feed provider stooped service.

    I then started using MT4, for me it was like switching from windows 8 to windows 93 inaccurate slow and ugly s**t graphics.

    How do you guys manage with MT4 ? I don't have a problem with setting charts up and indicators but it's frustrating using MT4 and im sure i will never use again.

    Overall i find TC200/freestockcharts to be more accurate more readable and makes trading easy-er.

    This is a good question but it is very broad and difficult to answer in a succinct response. I do agree that MT4 looks like it was made in 1995 but it is still one of the most efficient programs for advanced technical analysis. The platform is highly customizable and allows for a lot of personal changes, backtesting, etc.

    I think TC200 the downloadable version of freestockcharts is equally customizable but offers much more detailed view and understanding for backtesting. it's for sure more user friendly then MT4.

    Hm, can you show us a link to this platform?

    I never know about them before.

    I know for example ninja trader is one good platform for backtesting and strategy development, but it is also not the latest wave in the software development. So probably the best platform is still missing. There is good way to back test strategies for US stocks with web based tool Quantopian. It is quite fast and advanced. It is possible to test on tick data forex strategies with ducascopy trading platform, so there are other options, but they are still not very common and widely available.

    Hi here is a link to youtube to see the platform http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nolteda9cjA
    If you type TC2000 in google you will find it immediately. Basicly it's a downloadable version of frestockcharts.com but it's more customizable like MT4 But a much better interface, graphics, accurate and more user friendly.
    Also to use freestockcharts you have to download microsoft silverlight plugin for your browser

    Can I use custom indicators like TMA, JMA, MTF Stoch, XPMA, RSX, Currency Power, DSS Bressert, RSI TripleStoch Divergence, Gann HiLo Activator... and others?
    Guess not. So there's your answer... I am not really in this business for cool graphics.

    Well my first impression after looking at the youtube link for TC200, wow it hurts my eyes lol (But I'm sure that's only for me)
    I prefer something clean and simple like this chart below



    and what I need really just big chunk of prices data and chart, that's all,
    which make Mt4 and platform which can provide data 5-10 years to the past perfect for me.
