    I currently have a Bloomberg Terminal and am quite happy with it, yet was wondering if there is anything out there that has just as good of charting ability, data feed, and decent economic/news release possibilities as well, without costing an arm and a leg and another arm!? ;) I trade mainly the forex intraday and use IB as my brokerage platform (which i am pretty happy with). I am looking for something with a great realtime/intraday charting features, tools, and a data feed that is reliable and not prone to having servers down alot. The great thing about Bloomberg is that in 5 years of use, i have never had any down time issues at all, but then again, I could have bought a house with that money spent! Many times, they say "you get what you paid for", and i agree most of the time but figured there just might be a better deal out there for realtime charting and economic news. Appreciate any feedback/comments/experiences/recommendations. Thx
