A number of social trading forex brokers offer lesser known trading platforms, or have developed their own proprietary trading platforms. The last mentioned typically combine the best from both worlds; offering the full social trading experience for traders who are looking for that, while also offering everything a traditional independent forex trader would need, such as advanced charting and order management tools.
Examples of popular, but lesser known trading platforms include the Iress Trader, Integral, HotspotFX, and J-Trader. Many of these are good trading platforms, although they all have their own unique pros and cons. Which one a trader chooses should thus depend on his personal trading style, whether he is scalping, swing trading, day trading, and so on.
