Can TradeInterceptor Replace MetaTrader For Desktop Forex Charting?

by Hugh Kimura on October 4, 2012 · 4 comments · Trade Well

Hello everyone, I hope your trading is going well this week.  In my quest to completely stop using Windows on my computer, I am going to review the desktop charting software called TradeInterceptor.  A few months back, I reviewed the TradeInterceptor mobile app and it has become my favorite app for forex charting.

The desktop version of TradeInterceptor is the only free contender to Metatrader that I know about right now.  Sure, there are other great trading, charting and backtesting platforms out there…but you have to put up some money to get them.  When it comes to $FREE.99, Metatrader has been the gold standard for a long time.

But TradeInterceptor promises a couple of distinct advantages.  First, it can be run on Windows, OS X and Linux.  Second, it promises manual backtesting capability.  Metatrader does automated backtesting, but you have to get Forex Tester to do manual backtesting.

Anyway, I recently installed it and here are my initial impressions…

Do you know of any free Metatrader alternatives?  Let us know by commenting below…
