Hi all. I should mention a brief trading bio. I began trading 3 years ago. Did OK. Took a banking job, recently left that to return to trading independently. A lot seems to have changed. Before, I was using rediplus to execute and AT financial to view charts. There are so many new packages and data feeds now it is making my head spin and I am a bit overwhelmed. I signed up with IB and am trying to learn their software. My first day looking at it was friday but it still is very complicated to me. I hear AT is now out of business. Could anyone point me toward a chart package that is similar? I dont' want to run one off the web, I want a standalone package to look at stocks, index futures and perhaps bonds or commodities. Also, I was reading on here about button and ninja trader and am thinking of giving that a try. Do they make the IB interface any easier to use? I am having a hard time learning it. A big Thank You to anyone who can shed some light. I am not quite a newbie: I can trade OK(at least I did when I last attempted it) so I'm not quite clueless, just having problems getting my system started again.
