Platform that can create ratio charts eg (CL/DX)/(AUD/JPY)???

Hi guys. I'm based in the UK and currently use ThinkorSwim. Within the platform is functionality that allows you to create ratio charts. Following their takeover by TD Ameritrade they will no longer be providing brokerage services within the UK (from the 22nd August). This means very shortly I will no longer have access to all of the indicators I created (and need for my trading).

I need to switch brokers by 22nd August but it must be to one where I can create ratio charts. There may be platforms that can plot simple ratios but I need one that can plot more complex ones.

for example;

(CL/DX) / (AUD/JPY)

or

(CL/ES) / ((AUD/JPY)/(ES/YM))

Please help me out here guys!

It's a simple indicator for NT.

Really? I don't have any experience with other platforms/brokers. Is that Ninjatrader? I was thinking of switching to Mirus futures but.....I may need to buy a PC. I only have a mac right now...

So if I were to do that can you chart an indicator on it's own, or does it have to be an overlay on an existing chart?

Thanks

I believe Sam is referring to a correlation indicator. There is also one built-in to MultiCharts.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Right, this one will do the job for @PositiveDeviant.
Having a Mac is not a big problem, use Bootcamp or a Windows virtual machine on your Mac.

Thanks guys. I'm in the process of opening an account with Mirus Futures, and I'll be looking to use NT with Zen-Fire. These scored highest in the 2010 futures.io (formerly BMT) awards (futures category) so I'm sure this package will be very good.

It does look like I'll need to become acquainted with programming my own indicators. Although it doesn't seem like it right now this is probably a blessing in disguise. The data-feed on ThinkorSwim over the last few days has been very bad and I've had historic issues with the data I use to calculate my indicators.

I'm quick on the trigger!


As for ratio charts, a lot of platforms do that. IRT can, and I assume Multicharts, Esignal, AmiBroker and what not, can do it too.
