Does anyone have any recommendations for data/trading platforms for trading futures? I've used CQG for charting but that's a bit too pricey. As a substitute, I've looked into futuresource but it seems there's a lot of people unhappy with esignal. Any thoughts on Futuresource data and what the monthly fee is? For trading, I've been looking at velocity futures for order entry with X-Trader. And just recently, I took a look at Tradestation. Tradestation looks as though they have something similar to X-Trader. In addition, looks like they have in house data, quotes, and charting. Tradestation seems like it could provide everything I need. I couldn't find any info on platform pricing though. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
