J-Trader, X_Trader, TurboTrader, are any similar to IB TWS?

    Although I'm very happy with IB and TWS, I'm looking for a platform offered by one of the $500 day futures margin brokers, since my trading style requires hedging with many contracts.

    Is there a platform that's similar to TWS, or one that's easy to learn without needless complexity?
  2. Ninja Trader w/ Zen-Fire. I believe Mirus Futures offers this platform, all in one commission rate with $500 d/t margin.

    Thanks for the response. My first impression is that Ninja Trader has a lot of features that I may not need, but I'll definitely consider it.

    Ideally, I would like to find a very basic platform, that will allow me to simply buy/sell futures without charting or interfacing with other applications.

    Velocity Futures has a deal with X-Trader where you don't pay a subscription fee - you just pay a markup on commissions (which are still very reasonable.) Similar deals for Ninja and CQG as well.
