You are right about the semi-automated robots that help the traders manage their positions, move the stop loss and target, hide the stop loss and target from the broker and… . They are good. In the above article I am talking about the fully automated robots that are sold over the internet. They make the novice traders lose money and get disappointed on trading.
When you sign up with a broker, your money is gone the instant you send it in. What I mean is, if you try to take it out you have to supply them with your entire identity with card numbers, photos, addresses, etc. And, to make things worse, if you accept their “bonus” money that gets added to your account, you have to reach a certain trading volume before you can withdraw anything. So, if you deposited $500 and you get a $120 bonus, this comes to (500+120) x 20 = $12,400 before you can withdraw even one penny. With the results below, that will never happen.

There are of course other countless platforms in the foreign exchange industry that are not included in our Best FX Platforms Guide. XTB OpenHub, Tradeable, Trading212 platform, Oanda fxTrade, Sirix WebTrader, eToro Openbook and many many more. These platforms are not reviewed in this article because they neither make an important on the fx trading industry now, nor they are expected to make any in 2018.
Edit: I am aware Tradingview is great for back testing and analysis - I have just found there are restrictions when it comes to more advanced trade management aspects and trade entry speed, etc. As mentioned - I have used Ninjatrader, I like the platform and it does everything I want it to do. My main issue is the limited amount of brokers supporting it and lack of mobile support. Would MT4 be a better option? Is it worth my time learning the platform?
