Hi BM

I think that I solved my NT issues. I went back to open e-cry because their trading platform is powerful and it's FREE. I made a few screenshots here and the zip file contains detailed shots of OEC's DOM.

I've been using MC for a couple of years and love the charting and development tools but they'll have to make some pretty major improvements to surpass what we can get at OEC. I'm confident that MC engineers can close the gap but near term; NT users may find OEC platform a good alternative.

The OEC platform is rock solid; it has allot of features including importation of .net languages ie EL; their DOM is the best; chart trading; block trading; and it's FREE. They offer a consice version of footprint for 25/month add-on. OEC has promised me that they have fixed their datafeed problems so we'll see. I have Zen via MC as a backup and their trade desk telephone number handy. ;o)

I signed-up with optionsxpress through OEC and it's my plan to use MC in AutoExecution mode for stock swing trading and use OEC Trader for futures until such time that MC completely develops the trading interface.

I hope that MC accomplishes this so we can have broker independence one day ;o)

OEC User here!

Have you found that 3.5 is working stable for you? I'm still running 3.4.0.8 because 3.5.0.6 has a bug in the "additional fractional decimal" that doesn't work in the chart settings so it in effect rounds down all of my moving averages/etc plots on my charts which just isn't going to cut it. But OEC is aware and have said its in the bug queue to be fixed. Hopefully it will be.

But overall its an awesome platform for an amazing price (free). I was a TradeStation user for 4 years and ditched it for OEC. Got fed up with the issues and the pretty big cost for data. Just not worth it.

I just started using the new version, but it seems stable.

I have to undergo some training to refresh my memory and increase my skill level with OEC.

The biggest issue facing OEC is their data connection; without that they're dead in the water but I returned to OEC based on their promise to furnish a good connection. They have everything that I need as a trader .... access to stocks; futures and good free platform, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I also think OEC is great platform, especially for the price. I am really impressed with the way it's set up to handle trading multiple accounts from a block.

Apparently OEC is running different data feeds live vs. demo, which wouldn't be a problem except they have different range bars between the two versions.

The live feed looks similar to a standard Ninja chart... the other demo feed looks like this, where multiple bars of the same range can print sequentially. It wouldn't bug me if they did this and told you about it, but when I'm trying to keep things in my trade plan consistent and I wake up a couple weeks back to find that the bars i'm trading off of have been erased and changed completely it kind of f's things up a bit ya know?

I trade off the demo and want my old range bars back!!!

Just downloaded the 14 day trial to test it out. Also, looks like the commission rates are pretty decent. What are you guys paying rt?
