Just use Boot Camp?

IMO, the best charting platform for macs is Investor R/T with IQFeed...

I second IRT as a great charting package that works on OSX. Note, however, that not all datafeeds supported by IRT are available natively on the mac. The platforms supported by each datafeed is provided on the linnsoft site here.

BTW, I have had no issues running IRT and Sierra Charts via Parallels.

IRT is the only Mac native app I know.

You can run Sierra Charts using Wine which you can download using macports. Alternatively you can use crossover instead of Wine.

I use Fusion, it is a lot more stable than parallels.

You also have ProRealTime ( ProRealTime : Technical Analysis Software & Real-Time Market Data ).

There might be other software too, but I am not aware of any...

thinkorswim runs on Mac

The Think or Swim platform runs well natively on Max OS. It's free if you have an account with them.

MotiveWave and NinjaTrader on Parallels

MotiveWave is the very best trading platform native to Mac that I have found. It is awesome.

I also use NinjaTrader on Parallels and have no problems
