Hello fellow Forex traders. I am a student taking a Global Econ class, and one of our extra credit assignments is to do some Forex trading with a demo account. I'm checking out this software as a possible aid in my trading. Our professor is encouraging us to come up with our own strategy, so I thought it might be fun to learn this software rather than just follow some analyst. I understand the basic concept of the software, back-testing strategies etc, but other than that I have a lot of reading up to do on this system.
I wanted to know, if anyone is willing to share, have you had much success with this software? Do you think it is realistic for a student to learn and use it during the length of a school semester? Also, since I won't be able to link the automatic trading with my demo account at school, would I be able to generate a strategy that I could then execute manually on a different account?
