As you know, Forex Tester was only available for Windows for a long time. Macbook users could not download the program and freely use Forex Tester to backtest their strategies. It was unfortunate, we know. That's why we have prepared a solution for you. Here's how you can use Forex Tester on MacOS.


Parallels Desktop — Your Key to Forex Simulator for Mac

Parallels Desktop is the most convenient way to run Forex Tester simulator for Mac.

Parallels Desktop is a virtualization software that enables users to run multiple operating systems, including Windows, Linux, and macOS, simultaneously on a Mac computer. It works by creating a virtual machine, a software-based emulation of a computer, within the macOS operating system. This allows users to install and run other operating systems and their applications as if they were running on separate hardware.

Simply put, you install a virtual operating system inside your operating system. This way, you can run Forex Tester for Windows while continuing to use your MacBook with MacOS.


How to Download Forex Tester for Macbook
