Trading Platform

Trading platforms:           MT4, WebTrader

OANDA’s trading platform suite, fxTrade, is suitable for charting and news but lacks in other areas. OANDA’s flagship fxTrade platform is available for web, desktop, and mobile. Powered by TradingView, charting offers over 80 indicators and additional features, such as the ability to overlay multiple currency pairs within a single chart for comparison. I also appreciated the fact that both the web-based and desktop versions of fxTrade were identical to each other, making swapping between both painless.

Additional platforms are available from third-party developers within OANDA’s Marketplace, including the Seer Trading Platform, which supports algorithmic trading system development, including back-testing and forward-testing automated trading systems. OANDA also supports trading connectivity to multiple charting platforms such as NinjaTrader, MultiCharts, and MotiveWave.

For traders who prefer MT4, OANDA also offers the MetaTrader4 (MT4) platform.
