These are the tools I use in my trading and investing to be effective and streamlined.
Charts: SierraChart for futures charting
Metatrader 4 for spot forex
Tradingview for stocks and crypto
Execution: SierraChart & Broker Platform. Sierra Chart has a remarkably simple Depth of Market and has attached bracket orders to make it easy to input and cancel orders quickly.
Squawk: Free squawk from FinancialJuice as I don’t trade figures. The head’s up before key news is useful, as well as for unscheduled news on the fly.
News Feed: Twitter news list. FinancialJuice has a built in feed if you don’t want the distraction of twitter.
Browser: Google Chrome with AdBlock and Hoverzoom+ (Essential Tool for quick zooming on images)
