Charting Index Futures Spreads/Pairs

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by Eldredge, Dec 27, 2012.

  1. I am looking for a charting program that will allow the intraday charting of the difference between one contract and another. For example ES minus NQ, or TF minus YM, or 2ES minus NQ, etc. It would be nice to have moving averages of the pair/spread, other than that, I don't need much.

    I would also like to be able to chart four or five contracts on one chart.

    Is any of the above possible with IB's charting? I can't seem to be able to do it and can't find any information about it.

    Any suggestions? I will probably be using IB's data feed...

    I use Investor RT to do it, anything can be plotted, I think esignal does it too. Here is a chart of the SPUN

  4. Thanks for the tips. I'll check them out.

    I tried to do a trial at e-signal, but never got the password from them. I'll give it another try.

    I haven't looked at Investor RT yet.

    Thanks again for the input.

    I think SierraChart can chart spreads as well.
