If you’ve had a spread betting account or done any CFD trading over the last few years you will no doubt have had access at some point to either Autochartist or Trading Central.

Both technical analysis platforms look at the market and atomically produce trading signals from their algorithms.  These trading signals are then displayed and in some cases and analyst will expand on the opportunity.

But, as brokers move away from providing advice or even anything that can be construed and implied advice it’s independent third-party research providers that could provide an alternative.

So, if you find it impossible to keep up with the thousands of signals generated each day and need some professionals to sift through the mist for you. Here are three potential alternatives to Autochartist and Trading Central.
