Futures options software

    I have an account with IB, and I mainly trade index and commodity futures.
    Now I would like to start trading options too, and I need a specialized software (to set-up and follow my options strategies), like OptionVue, but cheaper if possible.
    I have tried VOptions, but it deals only with stock options.
    I'd like to find a software that can download the real option data (end-of-day) either directly or through my IB account.
    It seems Gecko software's Track n' Trade could do it, but I am not sure its Options add-on is really good.

    I will really really appreciate any advice from you!

    Thank you

    Option Gear is probably one of the best for options alone.

    You can also try Onitrader, they have a decent options module, or as you mentioned Gecko's software.
