I am a beginner too (less than 3months in trading) and I do all my chart analysis and paper money trades on tradingview.com

I am thinking of thinkorswim from TD ameritrade, watching videos of it to understand more. I might switch to that from etrade.

You can start from Нotforex Social account or Etoro, they offer something similar to trading social net where you find professional traders providing signals, a lot of other traders discuss them so you don't you will be informed before taking decision.

It depends upon what you intend to trade to some extent. You will find that many brokers will have their own trading platforms, available as desktop, web and mobile apps.

If you want trading software which is more generic and which includes some programming capability some popular choices are:



If you choose a generic product then ensure that it has an API (application programming interface) that works with your chosen broker. This allows the software to take data feeds from the broker to incorporate into charts etc, and to send orders to the broker.

For example amibroker has an API with broker Interactive Brokers:



Also ensure that you are comfortable using the software. Does it facilitate or detract from your ability to obtain and analyse data and send orders. If it requires some programming how comfortable are you with that ? Also do you need the ability to program the software to extend the capability to manipulate data beyond more basic platforms'
