It seems to me that out of all the software packages in the market, whether they be for analysis or execution, are deficient in one way or another. Now I know....traders' opinions on software will vary as no two traders trade alike and they need different tools etc. But I propose this.... Software that is available today dictates how you trade and, IF you had software that was tailored, you would trade differently. Software companies write applications that are marketable to a large enough group to make it worth their time/effort. Software is not suppose to drive an industry BUT facilitate its growth. However, I believe in this case, they are driving the industry by reproducing the same garbage that other software companies produce. (at least for the individual trader) If the traders on this board only knew of some of the software that institutions are using to beat you to profits, you would have a fit (i speak from experience). I say be more demanding of these software companies. Tell them what you want! I would like to hear from you as to where your software fails you.
