Although certainly not an absolute requirement, a quality cryptocurrency trading terminal can make all the difference in the world when it comes to both trading efficiency and potential profitability. On April 11th, BitcoinTalk.org member Kilzeus has released a newly updated version of his most excellent and truly free Cryptocurrency Trader trading terminal. No registration is required to download the trading terminal.
The Cryptocurrency-Trader trading terminal aims to seamlessly integrate cryptocurrency trading across multiple exchanges. Among it’s many desirable features are a clean, simple interface that includes an address book and highly intuitive information-rich cryptocurrency charts. Eventually, there will be two versions of the trading terminal: the current (free) version and a Pro version.
Even though the fully functional free version is currently in beta, the Developer has stated that it will always remain free. The Pro version will have other handy features such as stop-loss orders and additional exchanges added. The Developer stated that he released the free version so as to receive feedback via his BitcoinTalk announcement thread and appears to be quite open to suggestions for future improvements. He also updated the user manual on April 13th to reflect the new features.
Current Cryptocurrency-Trader Support:
Because the terminal is in a constant state of development, the Developer has issued a fair warning stating that the program may contain bugs. To his credit, however, he has thus far been extremely quick on deployment with new updates addressing any known issues.

For the program to work it obviously does need to connect to the exchanges. However, he stated that API secret keys are not sent anywhere. Functions such as simple get requests to get information on trading pairs and price history are explained more in the manual.
Cryptocurrency-Trader Pro is scheduled for release sometime around late May, and will include full support for:
