Trading Software


Have a look here:

Charting Software: What is the Best Charting Software?

It is a reasonable overview of what is available.

He makes some strange conclusions though. He eliminates both Investor R/T and Sierra Charts in the first video, apparently because they don't have a large user base. Both of them updates their program quite frequently, while e.g. NT uses a couple of years. Sure NT has a wide variety of useless 3rd party add-ons, but I don't see how that helps? They also have a large user base, but most of them are free users.

He mentions CQG in the data section, but not the IC when it comes to trading platform. I find that strange, since it's arguably the best charting platform within a retail traders reach.

Yes, but he mentions all the important alternative software packages. Once you know them you can evaluate yourself. What I like is his approach, which is systematic and follows some sort of reasoning.

You do not need to agree on the outcome, but you should follow your own ideas. I also rate Investor RT, SierraChart and CQG as interesting options.

However, I think that the user base is quite important as well.

Yes, user base is important. But with regard to further development, the cash flow is more important. If a company has a smaller user base, but higher cash flow, that would normally equate to better service and more frequent updates.

As far as CQG goes, it has both an extensive user base and with an average of $1000+ per user, the cash flow should be sufficient too.

I thought the videos were quite good. I just had an issue with the elimination of IRT and SC. I can forgive him for not mentioning CQG, it is probably priced too high for the average trader. But you have to pay for quality...
