What is your price point ? Trading Technologies and CQG Integrated Client is not an option for you if you can't spend a couple thou per month. And there are some other options that get much pricier... The fact of the matter is that the strategy is used by bigger and well capitalized prop firms and funds and commercials by and large. ( which is good for you, actually. )
If you want to economize, you will have to do some development work yourself given your listed requirements.
I have had some clients in the past who were very good with Ninja Trader, but had difficulties using it with spread combinations. Things hopefully have improved, but I cannot be definite about Ninja. Maybe someone with specific demonstrated skills using spread combinations and Ninja can contribute.
IMO, if you can live with seperate platforms for charting/modeling and for execution, then you have many more choices and pricing flexibility.
