One unique feature of MotiveWave Powered By PFGBEST is that it answers demand from PFGBEST customers who trade on Apple Mac for a desktop trading platform solution. MotiveWave is Mac compatible, and it works with Windows OS, too.

"In addition to using a variety of hardware and mobile applications, many PFGBEST clients participate in multiple asset classes," said PFGBEST President and Chief Operating Officer Russ Wasendorf, Jr. "MotiveWave Powered By PFGBEST specifically satisfies the needs of customers seeking quality, efficient execution of futures and foreign exchange contracts traded from a Mac desktop," he said.

PFGBEST Customer Relations Department head Paige Miller used the software’s Elliott Wave analysis functionality to add these comments about what it can do. "MotiveWave offers pattern recognition and tools to discern all Elliott Wave degrees, patterns, Elliott Wave Theory rules, and guidelines; the platform will support and enforce them for a trader. If a rule is broken, you get a warning to adjust the point, with a bit of information on what happened; this shortens the learning curve on Elliott Wave counts. MotiveWave works similarly on the other analysis tools as well. The tagline of MotiveWave – analyze, trade, and evolve – aligns with the PFGBEST commitment to educated, informed customers, empowering them to have a more satisfying and sustainable experience in the markets."

Some of the other unique features of MotiveWave are the ability to use it with your existing broker to manage all orders in one location, to place and adjust orders directly from the chart or other locations, and to display and compare multiple instruments on a single chart – you can click on an instrument to switch the price axis.
