Award Winning Traders Use Our Software

  • Fast Tracker Andrew H. won the Free Roll Forex Tournament June 12, 2014. Andrew had only been trading with us for ten months when he won against 2,000 other traders! He attributes his win to the superior concepts he gained from ProAct Traders.
  • Fast Tracker Mike N. won the FXCM "King of the Mini" three times
  • Fast Tracker Carl G. won the FXDD Trading contest in 2012


Trader Planet Awards

IN 2014, the competition was 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 the competition 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.

Jerry was the president and owner of ROC Software, a multi-million-dollar company. Jerry serves as the chief architect behind the ProAct charting technology. After losing $80,000 to the market using conventional retail indicators, Jerry got creative and crafted the award-winning software that has helped hundreds of traders pull down thousands of pips.   To his credit, we have never had to optimize the system since 2006. We are momentum traders, trading only when we have harmony across multiple time frames to achieve realistic targets. Jerry’s coding genius has given us analytical tools not available in any other charting system anywhere.
