Trading Software

Recommended Posts



Please help me find the right software/tool for trading.


My requirements: Buy & Sell signals( with very good accuracy), major/important indicators,pivots, VSA or at least close to VSA.


Please add any if I am missing.



My Research: Read lots of articles; found 100s of indicators, very confused. Finally thinking that these 3 pivots, volume, price drives everything.

Looked at lots of tools available, found 3 interesting. But need your opinion before invest lots of time and later find that it's not for me.

I would prefer real time streaming as 2 days a week I trade during day rest I research in the night and place my order in the morning.



My status: Not a full time trader but do research every night. Identify stock from 2 sources.. IBD (fundamental) cross check with Barchart(technical) and then buy.

I do look at the marker very often during day but can't read the chart for lack of time. I burned my hand several time by MMs and smart money professionals.


Please help!

That looks like a decent list. You just need accurate buy and sell signals, major indicators that work each day, pivots and something that resembles VSA.


:roll eyes:


If you really believe that certain indicators, pivots and VSA is the way to go, then you could end up creating your OWN version of buy/sell signals. As for some prepackaged product just sitting on the web for you, I doubt it exists. Maybe it does, but I'd suggest that it does not. If that's the case, then it's time to roll up the sleeves and do some dirty work.

Blowfish: Please correct me if I am wrong but if signals not considering all imporatant factors may give wrong signal and may result in wrong trade. That's the reason I want that to be verified by VSA and other things.


Thanks you both for taking time and responding to my post. I appreciate. I forgot to mention those 3 tools that I shortlisted. I have not tried any of them yet.


1. eSignal: gives all I want but VSA.

2. Ninja : Free software with lots of custom add-ons. Not sure if this does what I want but gonna try this weekend and see. VSA scrip is still in BETA phase and does not do an excellent job. I am just worried that based on BETA thing, should one be putting their money on risk?

3. Tradeguider: gives all what I want, but is expensive. Some folks told me that it is not worth buying.

I read through so much and if I follow all of them I am sure I will end up confuse myself and will definitely get frustrated. I was impressed with VSA analysis reading (and believe that if implemented properly, will save me from getting caught into professionals hand) but I am sure VSA alone will not get me where I want.


Gurus! What do you follow and how much successful that is? Which tool you are satisfied with? I don't mind paying for any tool if I know will improve my success rate. I will still do my research (as much as I can) but will at least have some confidence in the tool.

Please correct me if you think I am not thinking in right direction. I am sure I can learn from your experience.

Here is what I am thinking of researching (attached ) but I think will confuse me more.


Appreciate it.

    • Date : 5th March 2021. Market Update – March 5 – Jobs, Jobs, Jobs. What Fed Chair Powell did not say that shook up the markets. Wall Street turned sharply lower following Fed Chair Powell’s remarks, even though it was not what he said but what he did not mention that undermined equity sentiment. Specifically, he did not push back against the recent surge in Treasury rates. Indeed, he took attention of the spike and would be concerned by a “disorderly” move, providing tacit approval for the run-up in longer dated yields. Consequently, the stock market was dragged lower once again thanks to rising rates and expectations for more of the same as the economy and inflation pick-up further. Headlines:   The Chair’s comments that he took attention of the spike and would be concerned by a “disorderly” move were not in the market’s narrative. Fed Chair Powell’s perceived benign neglect of the surge in bond yields weighed on Treasuries and extended the recent selloff back toward the highs from February 25. The US 10-year rate corrected slightly overnight but remains at 1.56%. The 10-year rate is currently down -5.3 bp at 0.079%, while yields jumped 6.0 bp and 7.5 bp in Australia and New Zealand respectively. The tech-heavy USA100 over -3% lower intraday, with spill over to the broader indexes. However, the losses were pared in late trading with closing declines of -2.11% on the USA100, -1.34% on the USA500, and-1.11% on the USA30. JPN225 and ASX were still down -0.2% and -0.7% respectively at the close. BoJ’s Kuroda sees no need to widen yield band. He said there is no need to widen the implicit band set for its long term yield target, while stressing the need to keep borrowing costs low to support the economy. Oil prices jumped higher after the OPEC+ meeting decided to maintain current output levels. The USOIL is currently trading at USD 64.60 per barrel. In Europe, key central bankers have also played down the rise in rates and signalled that the central bank won’t add additional measures next week that would reverse the rise in rates. Verbal intervention and a flexible use of PEPP purchases will likely be used to smooth an uptrend that most central bankers seem to feel is essentially justified, given the improved outlook for growth later in the year.

    • Similarities between trading and poker, in both, you try to make optimal decisions on the basis of incomplete information. Money management (trading) and bankroll management (poker) are very similar - both are crucial to manage risks. Because in both, you have a luck/variance factor, without the right money management even the best strategy can lead to being broke without the right money management.
    • Forex stands for foreign exchange and refers to the buying or selling of one currency in exchange for another. It's the most heavily traded market in the world because people, businesses, and countries all participate in it, and it's an easy market to get into without much capital.
    • crazyCza and crazyZdo always love a fresh new thread ... from 2013     78% losers, 19% survivors, 3% thrivers - the cusps ... Generally speaking, most people who begin to “learn” to trade quickly experience that losses and mistakes seem to have a nasty tendency to be disproportionately way more costly than wins and being right are beneficial. There are so many other endeavors where that does not seem to be the case... so they move on.  Few persist in their “learning”  to pass the cusp where they can turn that (accurate for some systems, inaccurate for others) enigmatic impression and their performance to neutral / surviving ... and then even fewer persist ‘again’ even more assiduously to  turn wins and being right to being disproportionately more profitable than the losses and mistakes are costly...  Furthermore, most people don’t believe or see the necessity to ”learn” just as much about themselves as they do about objective trading methods, etc.  Most never realize that doing a ‘dual major’ in Self and Methods is required to get a good trading education and "learn" to trade. ... and, many who do realize the need still flunk out of one of the majors and never “learn” to trade.  Only a few persist in and complete both ‘majors’ ...
    • https://pjmedia.com/columns/john-stossel/2021/03/03/mike-rowe-everyone-is-essential-n1429583 “If everything we do saves just one life, I’ll be happy.” is a little example of the narrative being on completely out of phase with reality.  Cuomo, instead of saving lives, cost lives, caused needless suffering and loss.  The whole plandemic is a prime  example of the narrative being on completely out of phase with reality.   ... just sayin'
