    Hello traders,

    One of the most common questions we are asked is what trading software do we use or recommend?

    Traders will know there are so many trading software packages available on the markets which makes it virtually impossible to decide which ones are good and which ones are not so good.

    When I started out with my trading journey, the obvious choice was a couple of free packages. When I attended my first trading seminar I decided to purchase the trading software the speaker was using during the course. In total I have purchased a lot of different packages and often my decisions were based on the software developers marketing and promotions of their products. You can often get taken in by good marketing skills.

    From all the trading software packages we use here, two stand out the most, Advanced Get by eSignal and Tradestation. Both packages are different and to sum it up, I would say Advanced Get is very much a technicians charting package and is best for those traders who like to apply indicators and studies to the price pane. Tradestation on the other hand can also be used from a charting perspective but is more geared to systematic trading. Both packages are excellent.

    If I had to choose between Advanced Get and Tradestation then I think Advanced Get would just edge it. However, me and my partner and all the Dynamic Traders all use Advanced Get as our main trading software. Almost all of the people I have mentored in trading have opted for Advanced Get after seeing it in action.

    You can read more about Advanced Get on our trading blog at www.thedynamictraders.com/software

    Good dynamic trading...
