Prorealtime is really good for EOD. They also have a promo going on for free live data for 5 months. Here's what I got in my email on the 13th of APR.

"1. Login to ProRealTime

2. Launch your workstation with a simple click

3. Type the code "freedata" in the search field to activate free real-time on the following markets:
- Forex
- US Stocks (BATS)
- European Stocks (Chi-X)
- and more...

Free real-time and intraday data access, no commitment, no purchase required."

The good thing is you don't have to pay anything. Good to try the software.

FXCM UK also gives free demo accounts accessed through their platform which has some charts built in. No stocks however, just indices, forex and few commodities as far as I know. Not sure about FXCM US.

I used to use prophet.net and loved it. I can't find anything better than the ones already mentioned so I gave up looking and programmed my own to view EOD which I get from yahoo. Good luck, if you find any great free ones please post!

ADVFN still has some good free charts.

Algo Futures have a free swing/intra-day Order Flow Divergence WOW Index indicator for S&P, Gold and Crude. It is on their website but can also be used as a widget on your own website. Good for spotting CD divergences.

Many of the spreadbetting firms use it-finance.com to provide free charts on their platform and their charts are becoming more and more sophisticated.

But for me its NinjaTrader, hands down. With Chart Trader and programmability. It's got it all and it's free even for live trading if you use a Direct Account.

I think QuantShare may be the best program out there.Extensive data management,GREAT flexible charting and basic to advanced coding options.

It also has some great tools which doesnt require a Phd to implement
Definetly worth a look

MT4 in my IMHO is one of the best free charting softwares out there. It has everything you need. A bunch of indicators and the ability to create expert advisors if you require that.

NinjaTrader is free and it comes with daily data via Kinetick for free as well.
I use MT4 but am looking to expand to using other charting platforms soon.
I've seen quite a number of people like NT, and more brokers seem to be incorporating it because of its popularity.

Thank you for sharing this.

Thanks for the heads up.

What's the procedure for signing up to this?

After submitting my email address on the Kinetick website I am taken to Ninja Traders' webby. As I do not have a broker or data provider I am offered a trial with the following message "We will introduce you to a NinjaTrader brokerage partner that will provide you with a two week real time data trial"

I only want to try the free EOD data, is it necessary to give a telephone number and a referrer? Although I may use NJ real time in the future I don't particularly want sales calls at this stage.

Advice please
