Platform/Broker Recommendations? - I have some specific needs

I'm searching for a platform/broker combo to day-trade E-mini futures. Will appreciate all of your thoughts.

Platform Needs:
* Ability to run on Mac without installation of Parallels or VMWare Fusion. A browser-based platform is acceptable. (I like NinjaTrader but it's not for Mac. Think or Swim works fair on my MacBook but margin requirements are crazy-high.)

* DSMA indicator.

* Ability to quickly toggle between preset charts. Three specifically: 2000, 3000 and 4000 tick charts and all with DSMA set to 40.

* Ability to save bracket presets. One feature I need but not always available --> "When first contract closes, change stop loss from two contracts down to one and move the level to break-even." Think Or Swim does not offer this feature; NinjaTrader does.

I'd recommend Motivewave as one of the better platforms out there, it is worth checking out since it runs on a Mac (and Windows or Linux) and connects with many brokers and data feeds. You can quickly toggle chart resolutions as well as save brackets. I don't know if you can get the exact rules you specifed in your post, but this document explains the exit strategy capabilities in the latest version. https://www.motivewave.com/guides/Whats_New_In_Version_6.pdf

I also don't know if it ships with a DSMA but it has an outstanding feature set and SDK for custom indicators, and comes with a very large list, so I'm sure that the DSMA could be obtained or created fairly easily for the platform.

Have you contacted support about the delay?
