You will need to install Metatrader4 platform on your computer. This is one of the most popular trading software available out there.

Check out this tutorial on how to download, install and configure Metatrader4 on your computer. Although anyone can trade manually using Metatrade4 platform, its real power is in supporting automated trading. Traders who a comfortable with programming can code trading algorithms, known in Metatrader4’s realm as Expert Advisers (EA), and run them 24/7 within the platform. Such EAs communicate with the broker’s server, get continuous price updates and execute trades according to the underlying trading strategy. In addition to actual trading, EA can be used to evaluate strategy performance and optimize its parameters by running it over historical data within Metatrade4’s Strategy Tester tool. This is an invaluable feature, but it is available only to those who can code their own EA.
