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.
