QT-like software w/ IB data feed out there?

    I'm looking specifically for a charting software that has the following features:

    1) Heikin-Ashi Candle Chart option
    2) Commodity Channel Index and MUST allow:
    a) Periods over 1000
    b) OHLC/4 calculation
    3) At least 60 days intraday backfill with ES

    I currently use QT and it has all the above features except backfill.

    I've tried out NinjaTrader but it doesn't have 1 or 2b. I've tried Esignal but it doesn't allow 2a. I've tried Sierra Chart but it doesn't have 1. I've tried Ensign, Qcharts and amibroker but each are missing at least one of the above requirements.

    Is there ANY charting software that has all of the above??? I haven't tried Multicharts or other software that require outright purchase though...

    Any help would be appreciated...

    Thanks. Can you tell me how to enable that?
     
  4. Just currious, what's the use of 60 days intraday backfill?

    @Total Keops: Just need good enough backfill to backtest. 60 days seems like a good point.

    @nkhoi: Thanks!

    Nkhoi,

    Sorry to trouble you again but do you know how to add more "line values" in the CCI settings. RIght now, only -100 and 100 are highlighted. I need the zero line and the -200/200 lines to highlight as well.

    np, f6, horizontal lines, enter up to 9 values , make sure chart region is the same region with CCI, setting, make sure line style = line for each line you want to see.
