    I'm looking for a good charting package. Currently, I use IB's charts on TWS. Not very good at times - well pretty often.

    I'm thinking of using Sierra, but I'm wondering if there are any low cost programs out there that may be superior.

    Or an expensive program that may be worth the bucks.

  2. Sierra + IQfeed - works for me.
    Reliable, flexible + configurable.

    look at

    They provide a 14 day full feature trial.

    I've been using them for 2 months with ib and charts are in the same range as prices shown on tws. Charts are streaming. Price starts at $31. Technical help ,either by 800 number or on line within the egate product.

  6. Hi Donnap,
    QuoteTrader is free, and has integrated to the IB TWS API, which provides historical data (as well as streaming quotes and trading functionality).

  7. Open ECry's own charts are great, if they have what you need/want. If not, you can plug their FREE data into a number of other charting programs.
