Use Your Own Trading Platform

We support exporting tick & bar data to numerous trading platforms out-of-the-box.  Tickstory also supports the ability to define custom file formats, so no capable platform will miss out!  No need to recode all your strategies.  No need to learn a new trading platform.  Our platform support includes:

Back-test in Metatrader* 4 and 5 with 99% Modelling Quality

That’s right – test your Metatrader 4 or Metatrader 5 Expert Advisors with real tick data instead of 1-minute broker data.  This difference will truly help you understand whether your EA is profitable or whether you’ve been wasting your time on a dud strategy (or worse yet, go live with it!)  Tickstory directly exports to Metatrader so you can begin testing your EAs in a few Simple Steps!

Rock Solid Support

We back our software with a wealth of helpful information to assist users.  From Help Manuals to FAQs, instructional videos and to a lively support forum – we’ve got you covered if you need some help.  We pride ourselves on making sure that our users are not left on their own.

Developed By Trading Professionals

Tickstory is designed and developed by finance professionals.  We’ve worked in some of the top-tier global investment banks and now we’re lending our expertise so traders like you can benefit too.  Our second generation of Tickstory is currently under development and we believe that will set a new standard in trading applications.

But that’s not all..

We don’t stop there – we’re making Tickstory the premier hangout for traders.  Join our community to make Tickstory the place to be.  Now is the time to join and help us make the trading world a better place!

Building a Trader Community

It’s not always a friendly world out there for traders but we’d like to change that.  We’re hosting a forum where you can express honest opinions about products and services you use as well as discuss trading tips, share resources and anything else that makes you a better trader.  Since 2012 we’ve walked the talk and provided the community with free software and support and now you’re invited to join in so we all benefit from each other’s experience!

Online Marketplace

We’re setting up our one-stop trader’s shop where you can find historical data, trading systems, system reviews and other trading resources.  Got something useful like that historical data you’ve been collecting?  Share it with the community for credits that can be spent in our shop or (coming soon) make some real income from it!
