I think this subject is very, very subjective, like asking what's the best car. Much like finding the best car for you, the best advice is to try the platforms for yourself and see which "speaks" to you. I know most platforms have a free trial so you can test it out. If there's no free trial, you may find videos on youtube (or here in the webinars) that highlight how the platform works. Hope it's helpful.
Our life is our own today. Tomorrow you will be dust, a shade, a tale that is told. Live mindful of death, the hour flies.

Each year at the end of Q1 there's a bonus issue of S&C which rates data feeds, brokerages,
platforms, analytical software, etc. Considering platforms they use different criteria (institutional,
professional; desktop, online; price categories).

I've gone through NinjaTrader, Sierra, R|Trader Pro and CTS T4.
I have found CTS T4 to be best for me. It isn't as full featured as other offerings but it is easy to use and customized. It is my favorite DOM to use, although there are some really nice third part DOMs that look great and have nice features. it does a slightly old look when it comes to charts but you get use to it. Sierra was too complicated to me, R Trader Pro looked great but it was hard to do basic things and NinjaTrader is easiest to get started with and has a huge thirdy party developer market but it just wasn't for me.
I say demo a lot of them any make up your mind for yourself.
