    Dear Members,

    Fibotrader for those who have not been able to purchase MS or AB.

    Fibotrader is available as a completely free version. This has one limitation: The only data source available is the manual ASCII import.

    As soon as the trial period of Fibotrader has expired, the program switches to the free mode automatically. Besides the data sources all other functions remain available without restrictions.

    Tip: Software-Updates can be downloaded as usual through the AutoUpdate or from the website. This way you can always use the most up-to-date version of Fibotrader.

    Some characteristic of Fibotrader is given below:
    1. Powerful charting
    2. Automatic strategy backtesting and optimization
    3. Custom scripting
    4. Portfolio management
    5. Spreads
    6. Watchlists/Alarms
    7. Powerful filters
    8. Multi-user support
    9. statistical analysis

    DOWNLOAD IT FROM THE FOLLOWING LINK :-

    Dear Members,
    Just for the sake of FCharts's users i have just finished scrutinizing the features that are available in FCharts from its site. And my conclusion is that those are curently using Fcharts and those are hunting for a free TA S/W, just install Fibotrader and take deep drive into it. In FCharts when the trial period(7 days) is over, lot of features stops working.
    But in Fibotrader there is NO SUCH RESTRICTION.

    LONG LIVE TECHNICAL ANALYSIS.

    best regards,
    Soumya

    hi soumya,

    thanks for the info about fibotrader. it appears to be good and worth a try. i was looking out for a free FULL pledged TA software (as an alternative to FCharts, Live not essential) which will work on EOD data.

    i have a query about fibotrader. can you please clarify, if necessary by referring to the user manual, as you might have already installed the fibotrader on your system.

    what operating systems are supported by fibotrader? specifically, whether WIN 98Second edition is supported? what are the spped & RAM requirements?
    i couldn't get this info from the web site.

    thanks for your time.
