    Can anyone recommend charting software that will interact with outside front-end trading platforms?

    I would need something that has % Change charts.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

  2. Hi Jon,

    QuoteTrader has <b>free charts</b>, using the streaming and historical data from <b>TD AMERITRADE, Interactive Brokers and OANDA</b>.
    Additionally, we're currently beta testing a similar, fully functional version that interfaces with <b>GAIN Capital, and Hotspot</b>.
    If you're interested, please visit to register for QuoteTrader, or email
    If you'd like a functional overview, several videos have been produced that demonstrate QuoteTrader's >30 Chart Trading and technical studies, indicators and drawing tools.

    Does anyone know of any good charting packages out there? I need the ability to see charts with % change (vs. yesterday's close) on the Y-axis as opposed to the price.

    I would appreciate anyone's feedback.

  4. Don't bother about quote trader.
    I downloaded and installed it after viewing this thread. The POS does not want to work with either TD Ameritrade or OX.

    Also, it would not let me login with my registered login id and password for the first few mins.

    Create a custom instrument with any indicator or combination of indicators, and put it into a chart.

    Also interfaces with NinjaTrader and AutoTrader for auto entry or semi-auto entry with chart buttons.

    (Your custom instrument in this case would simply be MPD/LAST, where MPD(Multiple Periodicity) is set to yesterday's daily bar close, and last is the last price in real time. Very simple. Take it a step farther if you want, and create a quote page of many symbols, all being tracked and sorted in real time, based on your custom indicator.)
