Software for traders by traders
What is Forex Tester?
Forex Tester is a software that simulates trading in the Forex market, so you can learn how to trade profitably, create, test and refine your strategy for manual and automatic trading.
  • Test and improve your strategies for consistent and continuously growing profits!
  • Become confident in your strategy, so you can keep a clear head and avoid mistakes when you trade live later!
  • Learn trading and become a successful trader!
Forex Tester simulates the Forex market with unequalled realism. As mentioned before you can test strategies and train your trading skills on (simulated) years of data in just a few hours (real time).
How is this possible? Forex Tester works with the recorded price movement of the real Forex market (historic price data). Like a recording of music you can jump forward, pause or jump right to the interesting moments.
You can go back to any point of time within the recorded price data and if you have saved a testing session (project) before, you can also restore all your open trades, trade history and account balance (of your simulated broker account) at this moment of the simulation.
Solution for beginners and advanced traders

Forex Tester is easy to use for beginners but also includes an API for people who know how to program.

Analyze results and find weak and strong points of your trading

Statistics reveal your performance; you can take notes on every trade (to keep a trade journal) and export your trade log for analysis in Excel or other programs.

Why simulating the market makes sense

It`s often said that 95% of Forex traders lose all their money in the first year.

What makes a trader successful then? In interviews, the best traders in history unanimously emphasize the importance of backtesting.

Backtesting means to use historical data of a capital market (a recording of price movement) to find out how well a trading strategy would have worked in the past. While there is no guarantee, very often a strategy that performed in recent months will continue to generate profits in the future.

In Backtesting, trading many months of recorded market days within the simulation takes just a few hours of your time because you control the speed of the simulated market. This enables you to test not one but many strategies plus variations
Use it or lose it
You can practice analyzing the charts and finding opportunities to trade without risking any real money. The importance of learning can`t be overestimated:
Unfortunately your brain does not work like a piece of paper that holds written information no matter how often you read it. You will forget everything that you don`t use regularly.
“Use it or lose it!” With Forex Tester you will be making more trading decisions than with any other method or tool and therefore our program is the way to learn trading most quickly.
Demo vs Backtesting

Demo trading is an excellent tool if you’ve already found the strategy which works. If you haven’t then it is useless. Demo trading in the 4-hour timeframe for example means that each candlestick takes 4 hours to finish. If your trading strategy suggests that there are no trades with the current chart then you will have to wait for the next candle. Testing your strategy for 6 months in a demo account will take you 6 months. If you need to make small changes to your strategy, you will have to start all over again. With Forex Tester seeing the next candle takes just one click of the mouse.

Backtesting with Forex Tester comparing to MT4
Software for live trading was not made for backtesting.

MT4 is one of the best and most popular platforms for live and demo trading which includes a feature for backtesting. We also know that it is given to you by brokers. Would you expect that brokers who are not interested in your success will give you great backtesting instruments included into the live trading platform? Live trading platforms like MT4 are good for trading live with real money but not for backtesting. That is why we developed Forex Tester: because we wanted a better alternative.
