Hi all,

I've been trading a few years now in different markets and have been focused on futures for the last half a year. I was trading through AMP using tradingview as the platform but hated how they integrated with eachother and eventually stopped using it. I switched back to thinkorswim as I started getting into tick charts more and have been paper trading on there with A LOT more success for a couple of months but they won't approve me for live trading so I'm looking for another broker.

So I'm on the hunt for a decent broker/platorm that won't break the bank. I figured I'd put out a feeler with people who are way more experienced in all of this and see if I could possibly get some recommendations instead of wondering around from demo to demo. I like to keep things simple so my requirements are pretty simple:

-tick charts(this is more the data feed side, correct?)

-indicator programming(I made a couple of indicators in thinkscript that I'd like to duplicate)

-OCO orders

-decently cheap(right now I'd rather have the cost hidden in the fees instead of upfront for the time being)

-decent platform interface(tradingview's is extremely good at this)

-sim trading if possible

I tried ninjatrader 7 the other day and it was just horrible so I'm just trying to avoid having to waste a ton of time searching. Honestly, my ideal setup would be if tradingview had tick chart abilities and a better way to track trades but that is not possible. Any recommendations or help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Tradestation does all this and way more. 3.00 total commission per futures contract round trip. Great mobile app, web trading, phone support. All the historical data you could want, forex data, access to European markets, thereís not much they donít do.

grab the x or y axis and move it up or down also there are key strokes that do this and move the candle widths


Damn am I an idiot haha. How did I completely miss this? I'm just so used to a zoom option(buttons/mouse wheel) that this didn't even dawn on me. That sure helps with charting in MC.net! I'll give NT another go, now. So embarrassing lol.
