Charting with IB

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by MarketBull, Aug 3, 2006.

  1. I recently opened an account with IB and would like some advice on charting for index futures. Based on your experience is the charting within TWS sufficient or is a third party charting package better. Thanks for any input.
  2. Yes it could be sufficient.

    And, yes, using something like Sierra Chart or Ensign would be better.
  3. Lucrum


    I'll second that advice.
  4. The popular choice is a third party app. Medved Quotetracker is a popular choice there.
  5. i trade with only ib charts and altough blindin' am use to 'em and prolly wouldnt understand setups as well with third party applets...they are not that bad if u find the right combination of colours imo.
