Forex tester 1
The first edition of Forex Tester is from 2006 already. It is by far not that sohisticated and useful as the latest version from 2019, but it it still does a very good job.
Moreover, Forex Tester 1 does have a benefit that Forex Tester 4 doesn’t have. In FT1 you can import data that you can download for free elsewhere. This option is absent in Forex Tester 4. You have to purchase these data, for a monthly fee.
You cannot buy Forex Tester 1 anymore, as it is out of sale. So the only way to get it is by downloading it from the internet, and to unlock the software by means of a Key Generator.
Below I will show you how you to do that.
How to get Forex Tester 1
Forex Tester 1 can be found in Google, YouTube or a Torrent Site. Search for “Forex Tester 1 + Key Generator”. When found, check if the source is trustworthy and download the file and unzip it.
Attention: When downloading, some Antivirus software such as Windows Defender may flag the Key Generator as a malware, as it is a kind of hacking tool. To fix that, temporarily disable the anti-virus software or flag the Key Generator as ‘safe’ to allow it on your computer.
