BB starts @ $1800 if I recall propely, and you keep on adding (tradebook is separate)... great market data, great analytics, but not something I have access to anymore... there is also Reuters Xtra which is similar to BB.. but overall, now you are heading into HF/AM land more than anything else since the infra/support costs would pile up faster and so does the account balance requirements to play in the sandbox.. for our purposes, it might as well be out of reach..
Always appreciate your input. I trade options and also looking for decent plateform. Used Optionvue 6, TWS option trader, visual trader (did not work for me since I trade futures not stocks)... Have not tried option gear or optionnet.
I was hoping to spend little money. However, optionvue and option gear range from $900 to $1695.
Found Onyx Optionvue 5 on internet between $100 to $150 but not clear what is Onyx optionvue? if it is the same optionvue I demo before?
If it is? then it could be a good buy. It analyzes the risk and can try what-if scenarios. IV charts, PL graphs in 3 to 5 lines.
Thanks for starting this thread.

Whats up with this service? Looks like their website still isnt set up? It has been a while since the OP.
I found Peter Hoadleys excel add in recently. I tried the trial, but it force closes constantly! It is a POS. I am looking for other options in this space. For what I do, I don't need anything too crazy. I could make my own sheets in excel but I really would prefer not to.
I was sold on Hedley's cheap and (it looked like to me) easy to use and feature-intensive for the money add-in until I downloaded the trial. He also only allows 3 email correspondences with him before he cuts you off from questions. That would be fine with me if his trial wasn't the buggiest thing I have ever had the displeasure of downloading.
Any advice is appreciated. This thread threw out a lot of ideas but no feedback.
