Best alternative to NinjaTrader ?

After many years using NinjaTrader 7 for my automated day trading (with a Kinetick data feed, trading on Interactive Brokers), I'm seriously thinking about switching all my algos from NT to another platform:
- Their customer service has deteriorated over the years, is now very weak, providing generic and often wrong information
- Their affiliation with Kinetick makes them lousy at implementing basic improvements such as access to the latest IB TWS version (which now has improved Tick data)
- They took forever to launch NT8 yet not sure how stable it is for live trading and the migration path from NT7 remains fairly painful
- Etc

I'd be interested in other traders view on the best alternatives. My two key requirements are the ability to perform Automated Trading and Interface with InteractiveBrokers. Many thanks.

Try TT web from trading technologies. Execution is super-fast and there are more than enough features to be a good trader: amazing order book and great execution times.

I also love the Traders Analytics feature within it which allows you to see the stats of all your trades per instrument. An amazing source of insights!
