Thank you for reaching out and actually asking and not just "following the herd" like many do when it comes to choosing a platform amongst other things that relate to trading.
There are a number of options available to you, and regardless of your previous experience with platfoms you should choose one that offer the most basic features you are looking at a reasonable price. That is for starters.
Second, you then look for navigation that you find intuitive and looks appealing to you.
Third, you want to examine the "deeper" features that could potentially help you as a trader as you evolve as a trader.
To answer your question specifically I think you will find the migration to MultiCharts and/or Sierra rather intuitive, however you can also examine other such as MarketDelta, CTS, R|Trader and TT, etc. There are also others that are not as well known yet offer really good DOMs such as InsideEdge and QTrader (I know...sounds like a lot, but we will help you narrow it down and try and keep costs in the mix).
We are very neutral when it comes to platforms because we find that most traders don't like to make many changes (even if necessary) once they become familiar with a platform. Give us a call and we would be more than happy to assist you.
PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.
Multicharts supports trade station indicators that would be great choice . As they have a life time licence and lease version .
The free version of Mc is great way to start it will give you every feature of Mc with a restriction o. Number of futures instrument you can trade. I think you can add 2 instruments and check free version out. MC is a solid platform and works with vision.
My experience with Sierra has been just a 2 week trial .

It is a good platform and an easy transition from Ninja.
I use it for some autotrading capabilities that it has and it comes with many autotrading strategies already prebuilt.
I use it on Rithmic. I did use it on CQG previously but found it to run much smoother with rithmic.
I use Sierra Chart on another account with TTnet. The quality and customization capability far exceeds Multicharts and Ninja. It is extremely stable and has never froze up or locked up on me. I do all discretionary trading with it and find it very intuitive.
I also like the ability to use spreadsheets with Sierra and also do automated trading with spreadsheets.
This allows alot of experimenting with autotrading strategies you may have. If you cant get into programming heavily, then this may be a good option to try some basic autotrading.
I use Rtrader Pro also and it is good also. It is very stable and great spread trading capabilities.
I also have Xtrader, but do not use it much , although it is a nice platform.
Overall, I feel I can do everything I need with Sierra Charts. The have great support with constant updates and quick fixing of issues that arise.
