Vantage FX is an Australian registered company providing specialist Forex trading services to Australian and International clients. Vantage FX is different from many other Forex brokers in that they focus on providing a client-friendly, totally interactive Forex experience. They offer their forex trading clients exclusive use of Forex Strategy Builder which is a platform for creating, testing and analysing each client’s own trading strategies. They also have an EA Test lab which allows clients to track Expert Advisors and the EA's performance on a daily basis in their demo platform.
The most popular features at Vantage FX are their Expert Advisor Test Lab and their Forex Strategy Builder. The main objective of the EA Test Lab is providing clients with an opportunity to test drive a strategy before out laying large amounts of capital which is normally associated with trialling different EA’s. Vantage FX’s Forex Strategy Builder is a platform for creating, testing and analyzing each client’s own trading strategies. It provides an easy way of building forex strategies by combining various technical indicators without having to know anything about programming. Traders are able to test the strategies that books or analysts suggest to determine profitability potential.
A Forex VDO tutorial series is featured in Vantage FX’s education section, with training videos teaching traders, step-by-step, how to navigate the MetaTrader 4 platform. In addition they also provide articles about forex trading which includes a glossary and extensive articles about fundamental and technical analysis.
