Best platform for stocks using IB?

Can anyone recommend a good platform for trading stocks using IB?

I was looking at Ninja but people seem to talk a lot of frustrations and I recall when I used it there are small niggles (point and figure charts looked terrible, data errors even through kinetick etc).

I looked at Multicharts but seemingly they do not offer real level 2 showing market makers.

I don't think realtick connects with IB, does it?

I use NT with IB, are those data errors based on forum talk or based on your own user experience? How do you know the data was an error?

No problems here. The more people that use it the more vocal the minority that have issues with it purely because of the larger user base.

You only have to go into the download section (https://futures.io/download/) and look at how many NT indicators are available versus the other platforms to know that NT is the most flexible and most widely used.

I don't think it matters that a chart looks terrible, it's how you use it that matters right?

One concern for me specifically is that many of the popular frontends discussed here, ninja, multicharts etc are very focused on futures as oppose to stocks. Or they're very focused on the trading of a limited number of securities whether that be futures or stocks.

I believe platforms like esignal or realtick are perhaps better suited to someone who swing trades a basket of say 100+ stocks. For example as part of their core functionality they have market scanners, show news, show world indexes, offer real level 2 showing market makers etc.

Can any swing traders offer isight here.
