Looking for platform similar to IB TWS

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by svtrader, Aug 3, 2010.

  1. I've been trading with IB and TWS for several years, but because my trading strategy involves hedging with multiple futures contracts, I am considering a broker with $500 day margins for futures.

    I really like TWS, and don't need any complex capabilities in a platform. Just the ability to "park" more than one order for multiple contracts futures NQ, ES, YM on one page (as an example: sell 5 ES contracts @ 1118, 1117.5, 1117.25 etc), waiting for the right moment to hit the T/Transmit button.

    In looking at the platforms offered by Velocity Futures or Global Futures, I see platforms like Xtrader, CQG Trader, etc . Are any of these similar to TWS?

    CQGTrader supports the "Parked" orders functionality where you can prepare several orders and then activate them one at a time or as a group to go to the exchange.
