can you trade off the chart with this software???
any good charitng software where you can trade off the charts?
(not too expensive)
I use ib and their charting is beyond terrible
Since you have IB data feed, try Sierra charts about 13 bucks a month -futs are a little extra.
I use qt with IB . works fine.
best combo out there concerning price and performance!
Open E cry has this feature. And the charts and data are free with an account.
thank you for all you replies. I really want just one software. I might try open e cry but I trade stocks only. I use quote tracker now but I can't trade directly off the charts. I might have to just spend more money on a real trading setup (currently use a laptop).
In the past I split my screen QT chart on top IB TWS on the bottom.
With a laptop I can monitor a couple charts and watch the TWS at the same time.
QT features allow you to bring a chart to full screen with a mouse click and if you want to put a trade on; one click takes you to TWS.
Depending on how many positions you have open, you can do it with one screen.
What is the best type of chart to have open in QT While your trading? intraday,big,prophet,historical? Not sure if their all live.
