Best Intraday Charting platform?

  1. Wondering what everyone's opinion is on who they deem to have the best intraday charting platform from a direct access broker? I currently use Power Etrade Pro and find its charting capabilities to be completely futile in many respects. I have considered purchasing another stand alone charting program to run alongside Etrade, but I thought I would venture another route first. That route would be switching to a brokerage that has offers a top of the line platform. I looked through the broker ratings here on ET and found that IB was rated highly, as well as Open E Cry. Since the broker ratings take everything into consideration I thought that I would make a post that only inquires about the intraday charting platform and see what people have to say about what they are using, or have used. I am mainly looking for something that allows for a user defined layout across multiple monitors that can monitor a security in many timeframes. This is the norm I know, but Power Etrade Pro, while they currently offer this, doesnt make the grade. Their charting is absolutely ridiculous for many reasons. For now, I was just wondering if there are other traders that maybe could help aid me in my decision making. Any insight/comments/suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks for your time,
