How to get a free streaming chart?

Hi, please excuse me if you think my question is mean and I am too cheap.
I am wondering what is the best way to get a free streaming chart for futures? Platform wise, maybe Ninja trader is the best choice because it is free for demo accounts. But I cannot find a data provider that provides real time charts for free. I am thinking, maybe I should open an account in some broker and put in the minimum deposit so I can get a free data feed there?
If this is the only way, I am willing to do it.
I know AMP has a nice CQG data feed and opening an account there only requires $500 deposit, and there is no monthly fee.
Any other ideas?

Thanks guys. I would certainly prefer Ninjatrader which I can save my work space instead of loading my indicators each time I open a chart.

If you're after Ninjatrader, then (you probably know) the data providers are driven by those that NT chooses to support, and there are limited sources.

On Amp/CQG, I do not believe $500 will give you access to the full spectrum of futures instruments - I recall reading that requires $2500 on deposit. You might be able to deposit and go with Zenfire, and then withdraw the bulk of the capital, which would incur you a $25 monthly non-usage fee, which is fairly reasonable 'rent' for a top notch datafeed.

There are some MT4 brokers that have many of the CME/Nymex instruments available. You could get a demo account - most allow you to use it indefinitely (plus have a Android/iPod access solution.) Depends what you are after, ie., FxPro (Australia) has CL, ES and a few equity indexes live in their MT4; see here. Broco used to have 6E and the CME currency pairs in their MT4 as well, don't know about now. (mind you, I would never ever never recommend trading with them)
