Charting software linked to IB TWS

    Does anyone know of a charting software that can output TWS data? What I mean is instead of linking to the build-in (Java) charts, I would like to be click on a symbol on TWS and have it display on the external charts.

    My TWS keeps jamming up, and not loading new charts until maybe 1-2 minutes wait. Either that, or I get a lost HDMS connection error message.

    Alternatively, does anyone know of a charting software that'll allow me to replace TWS entirely (i.e. with its own scanner, watchlist page, etc). Ninja Trader doesnt do that unfortunately, otherwise I'd use it.

    Thanks in advance.

    thanks for the tip! I have an Ameritrade account, so that works even better!

    Any other suggestions? The software page on ET is woefully outdated ...
