Do your charts operate in real-time?

Yes. Our SmartCharts™ operate in real-time. The data is updated every 6 seconds.

Why should I choose SmartCharts™ over other charting services?

Data feed is updated every 6 seconds with a data supply from an average of over 350 banks. Why is this good? Because the data supply from approximately two to 20 banks, offered by the average charting service, will not provide a true picture of what is really going on in the market. Also, the CFG methodology will not work accurately with other charting services. Learning to trade profitably, as well as developing a string of trades without losses, requires having the right tools from the beginning.

What is RCU/RCD data?

RCU/D data is a proprietary data function on SmartCharts™ that allows you to have an edge in the Forex market. No other company has RCU/D and it is a crucial part of executing CFG trading methods. RCU/D will only apply to methods you will learn in the CFG Forex Seminar. It will not work with other Forex courses and methodologies.

What are "candlesticks"?

"Candlesticks" refer to the graphical unit used to witness real-time movement in the market on SmartCharts™. They are a measurement of up and down movements during certain time periods.

Do you offer a trial period for your software?

Yes! We currently offer a FREE two week trial period for our SmartCharts™ with SmartSignals™. If someone takes the Forex Seminar, they recieve an additional 30 day free. Once the free trials are complete the monthly reduced rate will apply.

Do I have to take the SmartCourses to be able to subscribe to CFG software?

No. You can subscribe to SmartCharts™ and SmartSignals™ even if you have not taken our trading course.

How many currency combinations does CFG software support?

Currently, our charts will display the six major currency pairs: EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/CHF, USD/JPY, AUD/USD, USD/CAD, 15 other country combinations and more will be added in the future. The currency combinations that you can trade are dependent upon the currencies available from your broker.

Does CFG create its own software?

No, the Smartcharts are outsourced by an outside company. We have taken the trading experience and knowledge of our elite trading staff and created one of the best charting services available. SmartCharts™ and SmartSignals™ are specifically designed to go hand-in-hand with our trading methods and techniques to provide you with the most powerful and efficient way to utilize the skills you will learn in the trading seminar.

How many banks provide the data feed?

Data feed is updated every 6 seconds with a data supply from an average of over 450 banks. Why is this good? Because the data supply from approximately 2 to 20 banks, offered by the average charting service, will not provide a true picture of what is really going on in the market. Also, the CFG methodology will not work accurately with other charting services. Learning to trade, as well as developing confidence in your trading style, requires having the right tools from the beginning.
What are SmartSignals?

SmartSignals™ is a market alerting software that monitors the market in ways that you can't. It can alert you to potential trades and when a currency has met a desired level.

Will SmartSignals enter a trade for me?

No! SmartSignals is strictly an alert system.

Should I enter a trade based on SmartSignals alone?

No! Never enter a trade without first confirming the signals you have learned in the trading course. SmartSignals™ is an alert system and you should always backup your decision for entering a trade by confirming your signals.

Is CFG software compatible with Mac?

No. As of now, there are no plans to make CFG software compatible with Mac. if you purchase a Windows OS parallel window program, one can switch from mac to window and run the SmartCharts.

The currency values between CFG's charts and the broker's dealing station is different. Why?

Brokers use the specialized banks that are members of a small community that respond to fundamental announcements on an immediate basis. The remainder of the world's banks are left behind in these situations. A careful analysis of our chart data quite often allows us to already be in trades in the correct direction prior to these major moves.

Brokers occasionally harvest the weak investor's money when a 'Stop' value too close to the current value. You can observe that 'spikes' always hurt, and almost never help you in a trade. Brokers manipulate the current rate to their clients when they are in a high-risk position on their own trades, thus resulting in an unexpected spike that closes the clients’ position. These moves are not always reported to the Interbank Currency Exchange and, therefore, don't always appear on our charts.

On 'Trending' days the chart is perfectly positioned to consistently perform ahead of the Trading Station.

On 'Trading' days the chart is properly positioned when a trade is entered subject to the conditions of the proper signals.

When the Trading Station and the SmartCharts™ with SmartSignals™ don't agree, it is still safe for the trader if the trades are entered in accordance with the 'River Trading' signals, which include an appropriate 'Stop Loss' position. When 'River Trading' rules are followed there is almost always sufficient room for the trader to move the 'Stop Loss' level into the world's money.
