Before digging into the awesome resources I know and trust an important disclosure:

Some of the links below are affiliate links, which means that if you choose to make a purchase, I will earn a commission. This commission comes at no additional cost to you. Please understand that I have experience with all of these companies, and I recommend them because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something. Please do not spend any money on these products unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals.

Meta Trader 4

The platform I use to trade as it is supported by my broker. It's very functional although I prefer to use TradingView for my charts. You can open a demo account and start trading Forex today.

Logo tradingview

By far my favorite charting platform because I can use it on all my devices and it only requires a web browser. The drawing features are impressive and the free version is perfect for most Forex/stock/futures traders.
