I am an US equity day and swing-trader they tried to improve TWS charts within the last years, made many enhancements, but the charting still remains poor. F.e. daily candlesticks have often some unreadable candlesticks.
Their quotes are slow and they don't give true ticks and gives erroneous readings all the time.
The slippage on my fills are not reproducable, if you start
simultaneously trading with another platform, you see the bad fills in TWS.
If you hold positions over the weekend, you will be astonished how few you have on your account after liquidatino - there are always some $$ fewer which cannot been explained correctly....
After changed to professional platforms I know, I should switch much earlier !
IBW could be a starting point for your trading, but after you get more knowledge, you should upgrade to the professional camp.
