This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Other platforms more or less buggy than TWS?

I've been using TWS, and I find it quite buggy. Often the Volume Histogram malfunctions forcing me to reload the chart, sometimes charts stop updating and I need to reload the chart in order to make them update. Sometimes, seemingly at random, it will hog a ton of system resources for no apparent reason.

In your experience, are the other platforms more or less buggy than TWS? If less, then which are the most solid/least buggy?

You know how it is, the major features listed in the brochure matter, but it's the little things that matter most.. If the software is buggy/implemented poorly, then it's probably better to stick w/ a less full featured but better implemented alternative.

Thanks, Any info is much appreciated

Hi, I use the TWS to enter orders.

I use it mainly for options. I had never had any bugs using the ordering platform.

You shouldn't use charting in TWS. Use ninjatrader with Esignal or something if you really want good charting.
