Hi,

I was wondering whether anyone could recommend a platform for starting to trade, that'll provide me basic charting and possibly paper trading. I'm based in the UK.

Many Thanks

Hi,


Pay attention to the TWS, provided by Interactive Brokers. It has lot of useful features and charting tools. One of the best things it has is an advanced news screener allowing to scan the broad feed. It has a mobile version too.

If you need something to backtest, you can try free backtesting software, you can look at built-in Tradingview tester or Forex Tester.
By the way, TradingView is a good charting tool also.

If you are just starting out with only a small wedge then I recommend MT4 and its sister MT5.
Both free and has adequate charts, demo etc.

You can also try NinjaTrader. Seems to be what everyone I know uses. But MetaTrader is also pretty good. Don't think you can go wrong with either.
