How will trading platforms work with touch interfaces?
Will it be more user friendly?

Very impressive. Palantir Technologies may be new, but few, if any, can match Thomson Reuter’s ancestry.

However, the question remains, what is most important:

state of the art trading technology;
superb analytics;
or money management?

Without a doubt, money management is the Holy Grail.

Therefore, I am happy with MultiCharts; I will be happier if MultiCharts trading system analysis is given greater thought and attention.

I am not happy yet, but I will be on the day the official ver 7.0 is released (bugless). When it is done I will consider MC a useful and complete trading platform. MC team will find it hard to add anything comparable to the magnitude of already implemented components (e.g. manual trading or walk forward testing).

What do you mean by ''trading system analysis''?

I think how back-tests and optimizations are reported (particularly) needs greater sophistication.

But this should be the subject of a separate thread.

FXALL has just been floated on NYSE. There may be some interesting data for MC team (e.g. software related CAPEX) revealed in the prospectus.

http://investors.fxall.com/phoenix.zhtm ... ectgroup=0 look for ''Form of prospectus disclosing information facts events covered in both forms 424B1 424B3'' of 02/10/12

To my dissappointment very little mechanics of the FX market was uncovered.
