I see a lot of promotion for Metastock and overall it seems like great charting software. Given that it doesn't link to any brokers for order sending it seems to be exclusively an analysis tool. My initial impression of it is that if my broker provides the features of Metastock (charts, analysis, news, etc) why would I spend upwards of $250/mo. for a professional package on top of using my broker? For example, it provides less features than ThinkOrSwim for more money. There must be a reason. The software is incredibly popular and is supported by reuters eikon. Is anyone using it in conjunction with their broker? If so, why?
