Product Review: VisualTrader 8 by Sean M. Moore
I last reviewed VisualTrader in 2008. The latest version, VisualTrader 8.0, remains unique in its ability to display technical information and market movement. Nirvana Systems has continued to add new features and make improvements to the software. With VisualTrader and just a few clicks of the mouse, you can determine which way the market is moving, find strong trade candidates, and execute trades.
VisualTrader is available as standalone software in three different versions: end-of-day, real-time, and professional. You will need access to a datafeed to pair with VisualTrader. There are several compatible options for both real-time and end-of-day. For this review, I used Nirvana’s OmniData feed and it worked seamlessly. With the professional version you have access to the OmniLanguage system, so you can build your own indicators and strategies, giving you even more customizing options. Earlier this year, Nirvana Systems partnered with another Austin-based company, Transcend Capital, to create a new retail brokerage, gxtrader. gxtrader features VisualTrader as the primary platform offered to clients who establish accounts at www.gxtrader.com.
