From the look of it, probably CTS T4. John Hoagland has used it in the past for market profile. I recall that T4 is pretty expensive. You can go to the CTS website for details, assuming I have gotten...

It isn't TST, or NT either. The data fee is charged by the CME. The CME exchange regards funded TST traders as professionals, because, by definition, they are trading other people's money (TST's).

Hi Danny.

I'm not sure that you've got all of it right about the funded account.

Obviously, this is a personal choice.

To add just one thing, I also have no doubt about whether the TST program is on the up and up, or whether they provide exactly what they offer.
