Using Forex Tester 2 to Accelerate Your Learning Curve

One of the best things you can do to accelerate your learning curve is to do simulation trading. There will be times the market is slow, or you don’t have setups. If your only training is watching videos, and making trades in the market, then your learning curve comes to a halt when there are no setups. This is where simulation trading comes in.

In this video, we discuss how you can use Forex Tester 2 to accelerate your learning curve and build your skill set.

  • Forex Tester 2 is the best tool I have seen and used for testing a strategy in as close conditions to real life as you can get without forward testing

    Forward testing is the acid-test, but takes too long to build a significant track record, I have tested strategies over 13years of data in literally days, and had my statistics in a fraction of the time for live forward testing

    It truly is a great tool as I only wish I had found it years earlier to save me time and stress

    Cheers!

      Hello Dion,

      Yes, FT2 is a fantastic tool, so hopefully others will start using it as well.

      Forward testing takes forever moving at the traditional pace of time, but simulation trading can help achieve the same in days, if not hours.

      That plus its fantastic for building one’s skill set, so glad you are noticing the differences as well.

      Hmm, didn’t have anyone else report this. Can you try another browser, or watch directly in youtube?

    Good work Chris. Your great little demonstration of FT2 no longer makes it a daunting prospect for me.

    • Chris Capre

      Hola Mark,

      Great to hear from you. Yes, FT2 is quite workable, very much like MT4 once you get to know it.

    Chris my- friend this FT2 is just the thing for me to hone my skills. I always wondered how guys i’ve read can snatch those 15-20 pip moves several times a day on 3 min or 5 min charts. I currently use 1 hour for entry after getting a feel by looking at the 4hr and 1 day for my trades. I also look for patterns and Fibs and Pivot points Daily weekly and monthly. I am very familiar with MT4 and have my templets set up on them and also like a trendline drawing program to help make the case for my trading. I really want to get the short time frame charting skills developed. I bet you have some proprietary stuff that would benefit a fellow traveler. Peace to you. .

    • Chris Capre

      Hello Hank,

      Yes, FT2 is great for honing your skills, like a batter taking swings in the batting cage. If you want to hone your lower TF skills, this is a great place to start, so glad you are catching onto this.

      Best Regards,

    Indeed FT2 is a very helpful tool both for new and experienced traders. It is a much better way to test new students too. I like what you said Chris ” Skills are far more necessary for developing your trading expertise than information alone”
    101% agreed

    • Chris Capre

    Hey Chris
    Just wondering as I trade off 5day new York close charts, is the data that you get with forex tester 2 NYclose or if not is it east to get NYclose data loaded on. I am really keen on purchasing it through your deal but I just want to make sure I can get the data so that I am not wasting my money.
    cheers mate.

    Hi Chris,

    I am saving up to purchase forex tester 2 and your courses in the near future.

    Lets say that I have already learnt the strategies from your courses, would I be able to use forex tester 2 to practice what I have learnt.

    I am concerned that your courses might require customized indicators that may not be available in forex tester 2.

    Lastly, I remember a while back, you were speaking in a webinar on FXStreet about the Ichimoku Kinko Hyo.
    If I did not recall wrongly, you mentioned that there were issues with the Ichimoku Kinko Hyo that mt4 provided.
    May I know if this problem still exists in mt4? I am worried as I am using mt4 because it is free. I don’t know what other charting platform to use.
    Will forex tester 2 also have issues with the Ichimoku indicator?

    Please help. Thank you so much.

    • Chris Capre

      Hello Maidanki,

      Good questions. I will email you with my answers.

    I use expert advisers and my strategy requires to change its parameters while trading. Forex Tester gives me this possibility and I’m really satisfied that I bought it.

  • Rico

    Hi Chris

    Forex Tester offers 3 different types of historical data: Basic, Standard and VIP.

    Which do you recommend and why?

    • Chris Capre

      Hello Rico,

      If the testing you need to do is dependent upon the feed, then get one of the higher packages.

      Otherwise basic should be fine.

      Hope this helps.

      Kind Regards,
