It looks like there is no real good solution out there. I'm scratching my head wondering how such a huge market could be unfulfilled. Trillions of dollars are traded every day and a lot of the decision making is based on charts yet there is no good solution I have found. Below is a quick review of the software I tried. Ensign: I've been using this for about a year and sadly with all the problems seems to be my favorite. Fast, easy to manipulate charts, add indicators etc. Very unreliable. MultiCharts: A bit slow, no watchlist, hard to add symbols which makes trading news impossible. Second favorite... I really wanted this one to work since it looks so slick. Neoticker: Tough to adjust bar sizing (zoom in/out). Hard to add my indicators. Great watchlists, easy to add symbols, don't love the layout with the floating windows scheme. Esignal: Bad quote pages that ignore gaps, ranges, %off hi/low. Very easy to manipulate charts but hard to get all the alerts/indicators I need. MetaStock: Hard to manipulate charts easily, no watchlist, no ability to easily add symbols. Hard to add my indicators. I'm bummed out. I really want to upgrade but can't find anything that fits my needs/preferences.
