Should an investor with limited means swap from EzyChart Pro to OmniTrader or Market Analyst in order to get automated and tested entries and exits?

I am sorry, but I have not looked at either of these software packages myself. I use Insight Trader, which is generally a copmetitor for you EzyChart Pro program.

As far as whether you should buy either of them, let me make two points:

1. Personally, I don't believe that computerised trading systems work. Please read the article on Computerised Trading Systems on the Articles page of my web site. Also the ASIC warnings. I think that you need to learn how to do your own analyis. There is plenty on my Ask Colin/Education pages on this subject.

2. If you have limited means, you should not be buying expensive charting or trading packages. Every time you buy one it depletes you investing or trading capital. You already have one that will do the job if you learn the trade.
