Best software/platform for scalping equities?

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by JMowery1987, Apr 27, 2006.

  1. I've tried all of the following platforms:
    Ameritrade Streamer
    ETrade Retail

    Curious to learn if there are any other platforms out there. My favorite is currently Laser.

    I have heard of Blackwood, Hammertrade, Lightspeed as well.

    Just wondering if any other scalpers of equities have a favorite software??? Just want to see if there are any undiscovered gems.

    What advantages does laser have over Anvil? With Anvil you have the ability to smart swipe ECN MM and get instant fills. Also automatic resubmit short orders until uptick occurs. Extremely fast. Ping time to ISLD round trip is running 140ms.

    Would like to know how Laser and Anvil compare.

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Just personal preference, i'm not putting down any of the above mentioned platforms, I'm trying to discover other platforms other than the above listed.

    Thanks for pointing that out about Anvil though, good stuff.


    BTW, I have only demo'd on Anvil, Cybertrader, and TWS
