I want to daytrade/scalp ES or NQ at the market open (first half hour).

Should I go with Open E Cry (OEC) or TransactAT (TA)? Both are free but I noticed the demo for OEC is really laggy at open. Looking for feedback from "live" account holders and how OEC and TA react at the market open (6:30am-7:00am PST)? TA wasn't that bad and TOS was also laggy (I have a live account with TOS - will not use for futures).

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, my original post was too wordy. Thanks!

I have tried TA and it was a joke, I would choose OEC.

Personally I use Ninja and OEC. If you want good data and a good platform, it will cost some money. But for me OEC is as good as it gets for a free platform.
