As far as I know TT AutoSpreader is the gold standard albeit pricey.

I think CQG Spreader is probably in 2nd place but I have not used it.

Can anyone reccomend a good trading platform for live execution of futures spreads orders...where the spread (perhaps synthetic) can be quoted and traded with one click.

Right now I have to use two DOMs which works but is obviously not the best.

Want to move to TT or CQG but they are both $$$$ so want to see what else is out there.

Any feedback or help much appreciated. Thanks.

Iím not a spread trader but Cunningham Trading Systems (CTS) is another option and itís a bit less expensive than TT and CQG. Iíve heard itís relatively popular amongst Chicago-based traders. Sierra Chart can be used for spread trading but Iím not sure if you can trade synthetic spreads, it might only be exchange listed.

BTS Spark is a 4th. Seen the demo but never used the product.
