As we know well at ForexSQ, online trading platforms are essential to a trader’s routine. These platforms give you direct access to the marketplaces wherever you are and help you to trade stocks, currencies, commodities or any financial asset. They are a quantitative and qualitative leap for trading, leaving behind those days of continuous crazy phone calls.


These software packages have been such a prosperous tool that at this moment there are so many platforms, the procedure of selecting which one will better meet your essentials is more difficult than you might expect. The best methods to select which platforms will suit you is to test them with a free demo account or read the reviews of expert traders about the technical advantages of each software.

Though here you have some other things you could consider when you’re choosing a platform and we generally forget to take into account the kind of trader that you are.

It’s essential to confirm that the online trading platform does not freeze or crash, particularly during times of global economic events or news, when traders need stability. The consistency of a platform should be more of a concern than its look and feel.

A violent trader, or one who likes to make frequent, large trades, will always have to look for a stable platform that never, or very rarely, crashes. In contrast, a conservative and passive trader who does not watch the market 24 hours a day could be more flexible.

In the terms of trading, user-friendly means that placing an order or closing a trade can be done instantaneously. Management of stop-loss and one-click trading, limit and other order types are advantages that a trader could want to take into account.

It is help for the complete navigation of a platform to be accessible. If a platform provides additional tools and charts, they should be fairly simple to access and apply.

For an aggressive trader this is a critical point (scalp/intraday) whose dependence on the trading platform is far greater than a conservative or moderate trader.
