    Hi, Does anyone know of any front-ends for Interactive Brokers that I can use to trade stocks? IB platform is a mess and every front end i look at talks of futures and bonds..what about stocks? . I'd appreciate any help.

    You can use it for stocks. Pretty simple to setup and works well. It is very inexpensive. First month is free so you can test it out. The simulator is free as well.

    Thanks a lot people. You are very helpful. I will try these, but are there anymore that I can try?

    Thank you
  4. I found Ninja Trader to be my favorite. Very intuitive and very realistic simulator that you can use for free before buying the program.
  5. I second that...definately head and shoulders above bracket trader. Never tried button trader, too complex for my taste.

    This is a great product. Fast. Simple to use. Big clear interface. Makes Trading Easier. And as complex in its function (if you want to go there) as you could want.

    I'm a cheapskate (IB and Sierrachart) but gladly pay for Ninja. Ray is helpful and will develop extra capabilities when you come up with something useful --- and is building some new stuff that I'm looking forward to right now.

  7. Yeah, check carefully how the simualtor is made up and works.

    -> How close it really works compared to the realtime and real account setup.

    zeroline is awesome. You can open many Dom's and open simtrader at the same time. Price is also sensible. After using others I am definitely staying with Zeroline.
