Forex Tester 2 users usually required some extra time in order to understand the purpose of the "History" and "Testing" modes. If you also had hard time comprehending what those modes were all about, you can forget about them once and for all, because in Forex Tester 3, they will be merged into one simple mode for simplifying and accelerating of your testing activities.

In Forex Tester 2, a trader had to face several inconveniences in order to open a new project:
  • Switch to the “History mode”
  • Regenerate the ticks
  • Make sure that the data periods are the same in both data and tick windows
  • Switch to the “Testing mode”
  • Start the Test
  • Save the Project

All these issues are solved in Forex Tester 3. You just need to open a new project using a special button. The above-mentioned inconveniences will be covered by the software automatically so you do not have to worry about them.

In Forex Tester 3, all test settings including the list of currencies, time shift, initial deposit, currency settings and data range will be covered within a project.

- All the testing settings, including list of currencies, time shift, initial deposit, currency settings and the range of data can be altered and saved in projects.

- Easy switching between the projects.

- No need to re-generate the ticks and remember that you have to generate them for some currency pairs.

- All settings will be restored and ticks will be generated automatically when you open the project.

  • Multicore support.

    In Forex Tester 2, only one core of your processor was in use. In Forex Tester 3, all the cores of your CPU will be engaged into the backtesting process. This will definitely increase the speed of testing.

  • Optimized program code

    This improvement helps your computer to do each of the step more effectively and quicker.

Imagine the following situation: you need to download the free data for the last 16 years on 18 symbols (16 currency pairs, gold and silver quotes). In Forex Tester 2 you had to start downloading 1 currency pair at a time, and then return to some of your regular things (probably you won’t sit during the next 20 minutes in front of your monitor staring how the progress bar advances).

Suppose, after 30 minutes you recall that you were downloading the data. You open your Forex Tester 2 once again and keep downloading the data on the next symbol. An hour later, you will remember that you need to download the 3rd currency pair, etc. Thus, data download can easily take up the entire day or even several days.

The downloading process in Forex Tester 3 is totally different: it has become much easier and less time consuming. Put to downloading all of your currency pairs and in a few hours, the process is over.

  • Smart Profit Chart for analyzing of the strategy’s performance
  • Automated time shift for all of the project's currency pairs
  • Drag & drop stop loss, take profit and pending orders
  • Multiple monitors support – place each chart on its individual screen
  • Undo most of long-term operations (especially useful when downloading data from the server)
  • Renko bars
  • New doc-interface where you can detach, merge and move any window or tab
  • New more convenient registration scheme
  • Customizable hot keys
  • New graphical elements (signs, thumbs, arrows, price labels)
  • Fast timeframe switching buttons
  • Comments for further faster order finding and analyzing
  • List of objects – simplified access to the searching, editing and deleting of the graphical objects
  • Shows real number of ticks
  • Big fonts support

Every trader should have the choice which trading instrument to choose.

No one should be limited by most common currencies only. There are a lot of traders who want to trade majors and most popular crosses. But there are also plenty of people who want to trade the currencies of their countries. Others desire to learn how to trade very rare currency pairs, popular stocks, indexes and commodities.

Forex Tester’s paid services allow you to get all of 118 symbols (instead of 18 symbols of the basic subscription type).Why to go for less when you can get more with some decent payment? Trade gold, Dow Jones Industrial Index and Russian Ruble; make use of silver, IBM stocks, Honk Kong dollar and S&P 500.

Solution: Every dollar you spend on your education will be multiplied afterwards. Never refuse to invest into your knowledge and skills!

Every trader needs to backtest his strategy on the historical Forex data of his broker.

Example:imagine that you are a boxer and you train hard 7 days a week preparing for the fight. You watch videos of the fights of your opponent, learn his specific moves, invent the methods how to eliminate his strong sides and strengthen your weak points. Then you go on ring and all of a sudden you discover that you are going to fight with the opponent you’ve never seen before. Somehow the people who are in charge of the fight changed the guy you had to fight with on another boxer. All your preparations were completely useless: you are frustrated and shocked at the same time. The same thing happens on Forex if you trained yourself on the data of one broker and afterwards traded on the historical market data of another one.

Solution: to avoid this unnecessary issue you would better use the historical Forex rates of your broker from the very beginning. Our paid market data feed is taken from 10 different brokers at any taste for your most accurate results.

Traders are interested to use the historical financial data of the latest events. It is certainly useful to test your trading system on the historical Forex data of the previous years but most of the people want to backtest them on the yesterday’s historical tick data.

Example1: If today is the 14th of February then you have to wait for 2 more weeks in order to backtest your strategy on the February’s historical Forex rates. With paid services there is an opportunity to download today’s market data feed the next day.

Example 2: You were at work and you’ve missed good trades that happened in the afternoon. You have 2 options: to feel bad about it or to download this Forex data feed tomorrow and test how would your strategy perform in those circumstances.

Solution: Do not wait for months – buy it now.

5-digit data allows getting the most accurate backtesting results especially when it comes to the short-term and scalping strategies.

If you put to use small stop loss and take profit values, if you open dozens of trades every single day, then the 5-digit data is an obligatory element of your backtesting.

The regular price for an upgrade to Forex Tester 3 is $99 whereas the regular price for 1-month Standard subscription equals $40. The total amount of this bundle without discounts is $99 + $40 = $139.

During a limited period of time, our users have an opportunity to purchase the bundle for just $80.

Therefore, you save $139 - $80 = $59.

Forex tick data shows the real non-simplified market conditions. If the price has been changing for 45 times during the current candlestick then you need to see all those changes. 1-min data will only show 4 prices to you: open, high, low and close.

Example: imagine that you are using a short-term strategy or a scalping strategy. You use free Forex data feed that provides you with just 4 prices on each 1-min candlestick. For long-term strategies this option is sufficient, but what if your trade lasts for less than one minute? Most of the scalpers close their orders in 20-30 seconds and each tick is incredibly important for the final result. With Forex tick data you will also get that specific feeling as if you are trading online. This is a crucial factor in your psychological growth as a trader.

Solution: buy historical tick data and trade as on a real market.

Not only the price and volumes change on the Forex market. The spread tends to be different depending on the different circumstances on the market. Before and especially during big news spread can become altered significantly. You might learn the simplified version of Forex, then go to a real market and find out that your version has nothing to deal with reality.

Solution: purchase the high-qualitative historical financial data and get used to the real conditions from the start.

The regular price for an upgrade to Forex Tester 3 is $99 whereas the regular price for 1-month VIP subscription equals $49. The total amount of this bundle without discounts is $99 + $49.99 = $148.99.

During a limited period of time, our users have an opportunity to purchase the bundle for just $88.

Therefore, you save $148.99 - $88 = $60.99

The regular price for an upgrade to Forex Tester 3 is $99 whereas the regular price for 12-months Standard subscription equals $228. The total amount of this bundle without discounts is $99 + $228= $327.

During a limited period of time, our users have an opportunity to purchase the bundle for just $179.

Therefore, you save $327 - $179 = $148

You will be able to renew your data feed every single day during the next year. Most professional traders claim that the latest data are the most important. That is why testing on the latest historical rates create the biggest proof whether your trading system is capable of bringing profits or not.

Analogy. In an exponential moving average, the latest price has twice-bigger impact compared to the previous ones. The same principle can be applied to the data: test your strategy on many years of historical rates and consider caring more about the results of the last year.

The regular price for an upgrade to Forex Tester 3 is $99 whereas the regular price for 12-months VIP subscription equals $299. The total amount of this bundle without discounts is $99 + $299 = $398.

During a limited period of time, our users have an opportunity to purchase the bundle for just $199.

Therefore, you save $398 - $199 = $199

...read more.
Davin
"Hi FT!
Great to see the new FT3 beta! The interface looks and feels really good. Well done!
Otherwise, the look and feel is great, having the data centre as just another button you can press at any time is really good!"
Boon
"i like the timeframe switcher very much, especially when you want to switch from different timeframe from time to time just using the arrow up and down."
Adrian
Program is really smooth and responsive to use which is great!! :-) 
Christoff
Just to let you know the new Desktop function is really great.
By the way I just LOOOOOOOVE the Renko charts.
I have been asking and waiting for it for a very very long time.
Thanks a lot!!!!!!
John
I like the new version and the ability to select all pairs and download data updates in one go is excellent.
Margott
my very first opinions are: successful, neat, felicitous :)!
This means firstly, that the outher side of the program was only minimally changed (so an existing user is able to start immediatly, without extra preparation), but the improvements in the interior are admirable!
Sandy
Thank you for sending out the FT3 beta for me to test. You have done a greeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeat job with this version, especially the interface is not buggy anymore, toolbars are easier to move around and it's much faster in test. Thanks a lot for this upgrade! :)
Michael
I really love the ability to set any hotkey to any action. I had many hotkeys set up in FT2 with the use of autohotkey but writing those was time consuming, and despite the fact that I will still need to use autohotkey for FT3 (e.g. to bind draw fibonacci tool under mouse wheel left) it is going to be so so much easier now.
Sean
Changes I liked:
- Ability to save desktop ... Really nice! Rather spend my time in FT then setting up my charts since I tend to set them up the same time everytime.
- Adding hotkeys - again another Great change - I'd just like to be able to add mouse wheel up and down to that list and the hotkeys would be perfect.
- One of the best changes I like it the ability to move stops on the charts directly. This is my favorite change. Streamlines my trading.

19 features of Forex Tester 3 that will speed up your strategy testing

1. One mode instead of two

Forex Tester 2 users usually required some extra time in order to understand the purpose of the "History" and "Testing" modes. If you also had a hard time comprehending what those modes were all about, you can forget about them once and for all, because in Forex Tester 3 they will be merged into one simple mode for simplifying and accelerating your testing activities.

2. Automated ticks generation

In Forex Tester 2, a trader had to face several inconveniences in order to open a new project:

  • Switch to “History mode
  • Regenerate the ticks
  • Make sure that the data periods are the same in both data and tick windows
  • Switch to “Testing mode
  • Start the Test
  • Save the Project

All these issues are solved in Forex Tester 3 - you just need to open a new project using a special button. The above-mentioned inconveniences will be covered by the software automatically so you do not have to worry about them.

In Forex Tester 3, all test settings including the list of currencies, time shift, initial deposit, currency settings and data range will be covered within a project.

3. Keep all testing settings in the projects

- All the testing settings, including list of currencies, time shift, initial deposit, currency settings and the range of data can be altered and saved in projects.

- Easy switching between the projects.

- No need to re-generate the ticks and remember that you have to generate them for some currency pairs.

- All settings will be restored and ticks will be generated automatically when you open the project.

4. Downloading data for multiple pairs at once

Imagine the following situation: you need to download the free data for the last 15 years on 18 symbols (16 currency pairs, gold and silver quotes). In Forex Tester 2 you had to start downloading 1 currency pair at a time, and then return to some of your regular things (you probably won’t sit during the next 20 minutes in front of your monitor, staring at how the progress bar advances).

Suppose that, after 30 minutes you recall that you were downloading the data. You open your Forex Tester 2 once again and keep downloading the data on the next symbol. An hour later, you remember that you need to download the third currency pair, etc. Thus, data download can easily take up the entire day or even several days.

The downloading process in Forex Tester 3 is totally different: it has become much easier and less time consuming. Put it to downloading all of your currency pairs and in a few hours, the process is over.

5. Save time while downloading and processing data

The download process in Forex Tester 3 has become much faster. In this version, the data may be downloaded into multiple streams instead of one, as it was in the previous version.

6. Saving the profile

Before you start the test, it is often necessary to keep all of your current charts just as they are at that moment. Forex Tester 2 had Projects and Templates features only for organizing your workspace. In Forex Tester 3 one more valuable feature was added to them: the Save / Load Desktop function, which preserves the desktop and allows for structuring your charts in the desired position.

7. Smart Profit Chart for analyzing the strategy’s performance

  • In Forex Tester 3, the profit chart functions like any other chart. Equity line is now represented in the convenient form of bars, so you can see every tiny change of your deposit.

  • All drawing tools and templates have become applicable to the Profit chart as well.
  • You can open any number of profit charts, rather than just one, as it was in Forex Tester 2.
  • For greater convenience use the crosshair.

8. Automated time shift for all of the project's currency pairs

In Forex Tester 2, traders could change the time shift only for each individual currency. In Forex Tester 3, time shift is set in the projects themselves, significantly accelerating the process of preparation for the test.

9. Built-in EAs

Automated strategies provide traders with outstanding possibilities to save tremendous time and efforts. Instead of testing a trading system manually, one can simply click several buttons and switch to another task. A few hours later, you can return to the test and analyze the results – all the routine and boring jobs will be done by the software. In Forex Tester 2, we gave away just 1 EA, whereas Forex Tester 3 will contain 3 of the most common and useful trading systems for automated testing. In the future, we will add more EAs that will satisfy various testing needs.

10. Drag & drop stop loss, take profit and pending orders

Now you can drag and drop the pending order, stop loss and take profit lines directly on the chart in order to change their values instantly. This feature speeds up and simplifies the use of the software even more.

11. Multiple monitors support

Traders who work with multiple monitors often complained about the impossibility of placing each individual chart on its own individual screen. This important issue has been successfully resolved in Forex Tester 3. Now you can freely move any number of windows to an unlimited number of monitors.

Navigate to the “Window -> Cascade” menu and simply drag and drop the necessary windows to the required locations.

12. New, more convenient registration scheme

In Forex Tester 2, a registration key was attached to your computer’s Hardware ID. In case your Hardware ID became changed (for instance, when you reinstall the operating system), you had to ask a new key and wait for our system to generate it. In Forex Tester 3, you will be provided with a master key, so the key requesting process will occur automatically.

13. Renko bars

One of the most frequently asked questions related to Forex Tester’s indicators was the question of the Renko bars implementation. We are glad to announce that this tool will be available in Forex Tester 3, and you will be able to expand the range of tools for the analysis and backtesting to even greater limits.

14. Organize your workspace according to your preferences

In Forex Tester 3, you can:

  • Detach any panel or chart window.
  • Drag it anywhere you want.
  • Merge it with other panels.

15. It shows real tick volumes

Our users struggled with the data that contained a large number of price changes within a particular bar. This happened when you tried to test historical data on indexes or if you have downloaded the 1-hour Forex data form other resources. In these two cases, Forex Tester 2 wasn’t able to provide you with adequate volumes. In Forex Tester 3, this problem has been successfully resolved.

16. Customizable hot keys

Have you ever wanted to assign one of the most common actions that you used regularly to some hot key combination? In Forex Tester 3, you do have such an opportunity. It is impossible for the developers to forecast every single action you are about to take because this action will vary depending on the user’s trading style and strategy. That is why you can do it on your own. Hot keys can be adjusted via “Tools → Options → Hot keys” menu.

17. New graphical elements

In addition, we added some new graphical tools that our users asked for on a regular basis:

  • Signs
  • Thumb Up
  • Thumb Down
  • Arrow Up
  • Arrow Down
  • Check Sign
  • Stop Sign
  • Left Price Label
  • Right Price Label
  • Price Label
  • Linear Regression Channel

18. 7 important user interface changes

  • Fast timeframe switching buttons were added to the toolbar
  • Current indicator value will be highlighted on mouse hover with a big point on the indicator line
  • Added the leverage input in the “Symbol settings” menu
  • You can fix the bar number to see its values in the “Data window”, so it will not be affected by the mouse movement
  • Fixed chart scale of 1 pixel x 1 point in the “Chart settings” dialog
  • The “Maximum drawdown” value will be saved and restored with the project settings
  • Big system fonts support

19. Important bugs that were fixed in Forex Tester 3

  • Unnecessary jumping to the start / end of the chart after switching to another time frame.

Let’s assume that you uploaded the data and generated the ticks from Oct 1, 2005 till Oct 1, 2009. For example, you were examining the chart on Nov 11, 2007 and a H4 time frame. Afterwards you switched the chart to any other time frame (say on H1). You will see the last candlesticks of your data period that are from Oct 1, 2009 and not the necessary Nov 11, 2007.

  • Necessity to generate ticks for the same currency pairs in order to create a new project.

You downloaded the data on EURUSD and generated the ticks for this currency pair. If you decide to create a new project for the same pair then you have to generate the ticks anew.

  • Absence of the vertical chart scroll
  • Absence of the comments within order tab and after the history export

Comments are perfect tools that help you to recall why you opened or modified the order. It might be obvious now but a few trades later, you will not be able to refresh the reasons for your trading behavior. In Forex Tester 3, you will have access to your comments in all of your order tabs.

  • Duplication of graphical elements

In Forex Tester 2, when you created several graphical elements with different properties (such as color, border size and so on) and then tried to duplicate any element, the properties of the last created object were applied to this new element.

Example.

  1. You create an orange rectangle
  2. You create a blue rectangle
  3. You duplicate the first orange rectangle but the color and border of the duplicated shape have the properties of the last one (in our case, the blue rectangle)

In Forex Tester 3, if you need to draw exactly the same graphical element, you can just right click on it and duplicate it in a few clicks. This should save your time significantly.
