10 Chart types (incl. range bars, renko...), 15 drawing tools, 125 technical indicators...
Select any time frame for the charts, you are not limited to a set menu.
All indicators and drawing tools can be used for automated trading.
Trading directly from the charts.
New chart types are added regularly. Charts can be set to any time frame. You are not limited to a fixed list of time frames. The following charts are available:
Bar charts | Line charts | Range bars | Tick charts | Renko charts | Heikin Ashi charts | Three line break charts | Logarithmic charts | Candlestick charts...
The price you see in the charts is the price on which you can trade. Correct technical analysis is only possible if charts are 100% consistent.
Contrary to many other brokers we do not show prices which are different from the prices on which you trade. Unlike, for example, IG Markets our charts are not based on the mid price. You cannot trade on the mid price and technical analysis is not correct.
In addition to traditional drawing tools, drawing tools made by famous traders are available. All drawing tools can give alarms (e-mail, pop-up and sound) and signals.
These drawing tools are available:
TwinCharts allow traders to link charts which are in different time frames. Orders and drawing tools visible in the main chart are also visible in the TwinChart.
The yellow area in the bottom chart corresponds to the full area of the top chart.

The NanoTrader platform includes more than 60 free trading strategies and 20 free trading signals. A trading signal is an entry signal. A trading strategy is a complete solution.
The strategies and signals can be used for manual and (semi-)automated trading. The architecture is open. Traders can implement the strategies and signals as they are or they can modify them.Many of the strategies and signals have been made by well-known traders such as Martin Pring, Charlie Wright, Linda Raschke, Perry Kaufman, Dr. John F. Ehlers and John F. Carter.
It is easy to make your own trading strategies. Hundreds of components are available. Simply combine them according to your needs. Programming is not required. You can trade your strategies manually or (semi-)automatically.
SignalRadar shows live trades being executed by various trading strategies.
Interesting trades can be identified quickly. A trade can be replicated in one click. The trades are shown in the platform and in an app.
These are the advantages of the SignalRadar:
In semi-automated trading the trader opens the position manually and the platform closes the position automatically, based on criteria dictated by the trader. The platform can handle many criteria to close the position. For example, close a position at a particular time, close a position based on an indicator, close a position when the markets drops below a trend-line etc. These criteria can be combined. Programming is not required.
In this example the trader bought a position when his two technical analysis indicators gave a buy signal. The platform automatically closed the position when the two indicators turned bearish.Note: the bottom indicator is in a different time frame than the top indicator and the main chart. Few other platforms can combine opinions of indicators set in different time frames.
In automated trading the
platform opens and closes positions based on the trader's
strategy. Traders can use the strategies included in the
platform, they can find strategies in the trading store or
they can compose their own strategy. Without programming the
trader can easily compose his strategy by using building
In this simple example the trader uses the technical indicator MACD to trigger his orders. In this case a short sell.
The trader also uses a signal filter. Only when the the crossing moving average is bearish -indicated by the red chart background- a short sell order is accepted.
The Tactic Orders tool is another easy method to trade (semi-)automatically. Tactic Orders is particularly suitable for traders who use a lot of technical indicators. The trader simply clicks to define his criteria. For example: "buy or short sell if all my indicators are bullish or bearish" or "execute only buy orders and only when the majority of my indicators are bullish". Trend-lines can also be used as part of the criteria for automated orders. Orders can be placed automatically or after final approval by the trader.
In this example the trader uses three indicators. He wants the indicators to be unanimous and he opts for automated orders, both buy and sell.
For over a decade the NanoTrader platform is the leader in automated trading. Many other platforms have tried to emulate the automated trading capabilities of NanoTrader, none succeeded. If you intend to do (semi-)automated trading, choose the platform with the best and the longest track-record in this domain!
Screeners find trading opportunities based on historic data. Scanners find trading opportunities in real-time. The NanoTrader includes more than 30 FREE screeners and scanners.
Screeners not only find trading opportunities, they can also, for example, identify which markets are in a trend. All the strategies and signals in the platform can be used as screeners and scanners.
Some of the screeners in the platform:
It is easy to make screeners and scanners. Hundreds of components are available. Simply select and combine the components you need. Programming is not required. The screeners work on forex, market indices, stocks as well as gold, oil and other commodities.
Uniquely, when you launch a screener or scanner the last signal and its current profit (loss) is visible. So the trader can either wait for the next new signal or jump on the current signal if it is profitable.
Every night TechScan analyses every market using technical analysis, statistics and trading strategies. TechScan is FREE and integrated in the trading platform. It is extremely user-friendly.
In detailed tables and beautiful charts TechScan provides users with forex, indices, stocks... on which something interesting is happening. Every signal is always clear and well illustrated.
Orders can be placed in many different ways. Whatever your trading style, NanoTrader has the best and the fastest way to place your order. One-click orders can be placed via charts, order books, trend-lines, charttraders etc.
No broker offers more stop order types. Clients can place their stop level at the price they want. They are not obliged to use guaranteed stop orders.
Stop orders can be combined. NanoTrader can manage every combination of stop orders on a position. The safest stop is always activated.
In this example the trader combines a time stop and a trailing stop. The time stop closes the position after the 10 candles. The trailing stop is cancelled. Note: the time stop is often a good idea in break-out strategies, which make most of their profit early. The time stop tends to take more profit than a trailing stop, but not always. Therefore it is good to combine stops.
Stop orders and indicators can be combined.
In this example the trader combines a trailing stop with a crossing moving average indicator. The position was closed by the trailing stop.
These are some of the stop orders available in the platform:
Many experienced traders open and close positions in steps. NanoTrader is the only trading platform which can handle trading strategies which open and close positions in more than two steps. The order quantities are automatically adapted.
In this example a trader bought four contracts (+4). One has been sold (-1). The three remaining contracts each have a different profit target. The stop order (red label) has automatically adapted its order quantity to three.
NanoTrader allows traders to integrate the factor time in a trading strategy. Only execute orders during a particular period? Close a position at particular point in time? Everything is easy. Everything is possible.
More than 30 client proposals are integrated in the platform. The client proposals are very popular. They allow traders to see which tools and indicators other traders use and why. All client proposals are FREE.
All tools and indicators proposed by clients are located in one folder. Several proposals come from well-known traders.
These are some of the proposals in the platform:
Many of the famous traders who use NanoTrader provide their trading strategies and tools via the trading store. Some are FREE some are paying.
