Interactive Brokers have recently released build 944 of their venerable Trader Workstation platform (or TWS for short). They have also made the interesting announcement that:
MultiCharts advanced charting is now accessible from within TWS as a complement/upgrade to our existing interactive charts.
MultiCharts have just announced on their blog that they have introduced what they describe as:
The BEST currently available free trading software.
The MultiCharts hype machine goes on to say that:
We've been beta testing FXCM's new Strategy Trader automated trading platform for a couple of months now, and after quite a few trials and tribulations we've finally got our trusty first example robot to work successfully on it. FXCM refer to trading systems written for Strategy Trader as "Strategy Advisors", and they are implemented based around bars rather than ticks like MetaTrader 4. That means you really need to run this advisor on a tick chart to stay in the market 100% of the time, like the MT4 version does. We still haven't managed to get that working reliably, but it does seem to run fine on a one minute chart and up. If you'd like to take a look you can download the C# source code from our community forum.
