    I would like to ask what is the best software (with realtime data) for displaying about 20 realtime charts (2/5 min.). I am looking for a software that could show at least 12 charts in a 15"monitor, and of course they should be as clear as possible.

    At present I use QT that has excellent charts, but they are not multiday.

    You might want to consider using Aspen Graphics. With Aspen you can display an unlimited number of charts on a given screen. All the charts are in realtime and can be intraday from anywhere between 0-1439 minutes.:cool:

    1 chart for every 1.25 inch? Wow, you must have good eyes!

  4. For crystal clear charts and very user friendly I rec QCharts. They get a bad wrap here, but I think most of that is old before the server farm rebuilds.

  5. birgulino,

    Isn't he talking about a 15" diagonal monitor - so around 10"x12" or so??

    12 charts arranged 4 across and 3 high would be about 3" square each - still kind of small for my taste (I prefer the larger format available on dual 19" monitors), but to each his/her own.

    IMHO, one of the best kept secrets for inexpensive charting are SierraCharts.
    Their data feed can either be IB or MyTrack. The charts are simple yet crisp with a lot of flexibility in both layout and time frame.
    There is also a very active message board for support or new ideas.
    However, I agree........12 charts on a 15 inch monitor would require a separate magnifying screen to read the symbols let alone chart detail.
  7. I use 12 charts on my 13" monitor.....I can't see them either

    I have no problem in displaying 4*3 Quotetracker charts on one monitor : it seems to me that their charts are larger than those of other softwares (i.e Nextrend allows 3*2 charts at best).

    Thanks for the advices: they are of great help.

    I have four 21" monitors for charts. I've displayed up to 64 charts in qcharts with no problem. I now use FirstAlert as well and am using one of the screens for charts, which has 16 of them up, again no problem. I think qcharts has better looking charts.
