Significant cost, haven’t tested, very mainstream
Alternative to multi-charts. Posted message in forum on April 6, 2017 to see if auto trading was possible.
Better than multicharts according to write up from friend of Jim.
options support clearly stated on page
full platform with rule based builder, free trial, might be web based
Could provide some chat functionality, does have strategy building; Lifetime pricing looks reasonable www.quantshare.com/index.php?option=quantshare&%3badd=; never responded in forum.
www.multicharts.com/net/purchase/ Support is excellent. I thought this was hands down best charting platform found as of 4-5-2017 Sierra Charts is better according to write-up by friend of JC who said “when a symbol does not have enough history on the chart, the script gives an ‘ugly’ error message and doesn’t calculate anything” and said he experienced this in Multi-Charts. I think he was using the EL version though as he also complained of speed issues in general, and both complaints about multi-charts (bar history and speed), were general comments about other platforms as well. Since speed and other issues are greatly affected by the programming language, I suspect that Multicharts .NET version which compiles strategy rules using C#, would handle this just fine. I plan to test as of 9-7-2017

Sierracharts may do intrabar execution more seamlessly and have better rates, but TS may be easier to test on. Really a toss up.
SC does not have radar screen which may not be needed.
