Looking for a platform that could replicate these OF features.

I'm planning to start trading some CME/CBOT futures, but I would like to know which platform could replicate the layout in the attached pictures.

Basically, what I'm looking for is:
- a type of range bars (bars that are renewed once the market moves a set number of ticks) with bid/ask volume information for each price level
- accurate daily volume profile plots
- a good DOM with volume profile (for the day) and bid/ask accumulated volume for each price level
- time & trades (or time & sales) with "reconstruct tape" functionality, that is, able to combine multiple executions for a single order into each displayed line. Also a very desirable feature is color code each line by aggressor (i.e. bid hits colored in red and ask lifts colored in blue)
- Level 2 book (list of individual buy and sell orders resting per price level)

From what I've seem, looks like SierraCharts with the Number Bars functionality would get pretty close to what I need, I'm just not sure though about the time & trades and level 2 book. Could someone confirm this?

Also, would it be possible to meet all the above criteria with NT? Probably JigSaw would meet the DOM requirements, but what about the range bars with bid/ask volume and the Time & Sales? Are there any addons that would get close to what I'm looking for?

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

(The range bars zoomed out, with daily volume profile data, providing a better "big picture" view. Bar renewal setting here is set to 8ticks, that is, when the price moves 8 ticks away from the opening price of the bar, the bar closes and a new one is started)

(The same chart, with the range bars zoomed in so as to display the bid-ask volume data. Same 8 tick renewal setting. The sparse orders on the DOM is due to the screenshot being taken after market close, very few orders remain resting overnight)
