FX Trading Station II. Windows client for forex online trading with FXCM, the biggest forex market maker in the world.
Virtually everything. I am currently using a demo account. Charts, indicators opening and closing positions all seem to work fine, and fast.
What does not
Nothing important that I can find. Selecting different skins causes the program to crash. Looking for a work around. Some help menu items won't open and say winebrowser.exe problems, but the program doesn't crash. Sometimes FXCM logo doesn't show up when starting application. Boo hoo.
What was not tested
I can't say I've tested everything but I did a lot of trading and playing around with charts, settings etc. and everything important seems to run perfectly.
Installed with winetricks. In winetricks selected "Select the default wine prefix" and then "Install a Windows DLL or component". Then added thr following : Microsoft XML Parser(msxml3), Microsoft.NET Framework 2.0 (dotnet20), ie6 package (ie6), then Microsoft Visual c++ 2010 package x86 (vcrun2005sp1). Used terminal to install with commands - "cd Downloads" then "wine FXTS2Install.EXE". Unchecked "start application" box upon install finished. Closed terminal clicked on desktop icon to start application. After program starts you have to login. Click cancel then go to system-options-skins then select "no skins" then apply. If you don't do this it won't run. Then to login go back to system - login and trade! I want to say a big thank you to everyone at Wine for the great work you're doing. Actual Trade Station 2 version is 01.11.011212. Sorry.
