Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

What is generally considered the best platform?

My criteria:
1) best at displaying of level 2 time & sales
2) best Dom & ideally it'd have prints on Dom like jigsaw
3) cost effective

Right now I'm using ninja, but I'm considering Xtrader. Let me know what you all think

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.

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).
