Hi

I have a java program which conducts various calculations involving the forex market

I now wish to attempt to reproduce an output screen similar to the attached picture.

I would like suggestions as to what tools/software to use to achieve this

I am currently reading about javaFx

Thank you

You could use JavaFX, SWT or Swing to build your UI - any of those would work.

I recommend that you use:
JavaFX http://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/javase-clienttechnologies.htm in conjunction with
SceneBuilder http://gluonhq.com/open-source/scene-builder

You could also use:
ScenicView http://fxexperience.com/scenic-view/ for debugging layout issues.
ControlsFX http://fxexperience.com/controlsfx/ and Medusa http://harmoniccode.blogspot.co.nz/2016/01/medusa.html for additional controls support outside the core library (if you need to).

Here is a simple JavaFX based log viewer (as your image seems to require something similar to that):

For customized table rows, you can look at:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20350099/programmatically-change-the-tableview-row-appearance

And for the bordered panes (which aren't part of the core JavaFX toolkit), you could refer to:
