FOREXTrader pro key features
Abilities of a trading platform can be compared with the potential of such products as MetaTrader4, Dealbook 360 and several others. A trader can work with over 45 currency pairs (including exotic currencies), wheat, oil, corn, sugar, cotton, metals, major global indices, and has ability to trade CFD contracts.
FOREXTrader pro has high flexibility, at the level of top-tier products. The user can change the execution type (market or instant) and price tolerance. This allows to set the maximum distance from the requested price in the mode of instant order execution. As for analytics, in addition to news, Autochartist tips about emerging signals, and Trading central expert advice, the forecasts are also available from financial professionals.
Another advantage is open access to API, which allows to fully automate trading. This should appeal to traders who are familiar with programming. Trading script, after testing on history, will be able to conduct a profitable trade without human intervention.
FIFO rule is true for the platform, according to which all positions on the currency pair close in the same order as they were opened. Hedging is therefore impossible. This deficiency cannot be regarded as critical, and the relatively low popularity of the trading platform can be explained by the lack of DC promotion.
