Trader Planet Awards

IN 2014 the competition was much more crowded and filled with well-known respected names from all the financial markets. ProAct Traders came in 4th overall but once again #1 in Forex. Thanks to Trader Planet and all who voted for us. In 2016, they changed the rules and it was only open to companies who paid advertising dollars with them. We left.

We were the 2nd place winner in the Traders Planet Forex Charting Software for 2010 and finished second again for 2012!

Our Fast Track Mentorship program received high marks also!

Why is our charting software so good?

Because it is Forex trading software created FOR traders BY traders! With built-in trade setups for all types of markets (Ranging, Reversing and Trending), built-in Forex target tools to "Let your winners run" and great entry setups it is no wonder we scored so high. Additionally, we are a rules based award winning methodology that incorporates the time tested strategies of technical analysis.
