I have been using IBFX's pattern recognition software for some time now. I have to say it works great. Of course you need to be prudent. It took several months to figure out which combination of the quality/breakout/trend indicator that shows for each pattern worked best for me. I'm using it on a live account, but I would recommend trying it on a demo until you find what works best for you.

Good Luck!

[QUOTE][Reason I mention the relationship between Live and Demo is that very often you find that there is not the same alacrity in accepting your trades when you go live and you may also start to get re-quotes on prices. It's also fairly well-known that the Metatrader lessors offer various software tricks to their lessees, some of which give the brokers a lot of control of your trading. Never forget that they can see your whole trade on their screens, limits and stops, a bit like showing your cards to the dealer in a casino./QUOTE]

Exactly my experience with a Demo Forex platform. Much success .....then rude awakening on a real platform, with wider spread , slower fill and current price several pps short of the real market price. For a scalper I found this to be the kiss of death and closed the account pronto. I rekon anything other than true ECN/Direct access to the real interbank rates for forex where the broker makes his money on you paying a commission, to be nothing short of banditry.
If the broker is quoting a spread then he is not only makiing money on that spread but on the market he is creating on his platform

I note with interest that ********** cited above have a Eurica Account with no spread and a commision. Only thing that puts me off that is they are Russian. Dont fancy my account in some unregulated trading Gulag!
