A forex trade platform is a live program that is installed onto your computer. It allows for quick analysis and price information. It allows you to choose to buy/sell and place bid/ask prices. It almost works like a live chat program does by sending and receiving live information.
You do need a fairly quick computer, most forex trade platforms will work on a 2.0 GHZ or higher processor. You want to have at least 512 MB of ram simply because this is a live program. Additional storage space is a good idea, but you probably don't need more than a 5 GB of open hard drive space. Operating systems can be Linux, Windows, Mac, or UNIX in most instances. You also want to have high speed Internet — dial up will simply not work as the connection is too slow.
