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.
Top of list when typed in strategy builder with the web search, interactive brokers was third which looks more like a screener, They are trying to understand my option trade; answer is essentially no, not very good from what i can see.
Google search for strategy builders
doesn’t appear to exist
Such high promise but no email back from firstname.lastname@example.org and sign up is broken. SSL cert is expired and number on front page appears to be disconnected, big names mentioned, also fxcm and ib
This appears that it might work. Joined mailing list, but can’t login or download, pricing info to be announced, 5 min intraday
Backtesting options but appears to cater to professionals, message sent via web form
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 https://www.quantshare.com/index.php?option=quantshare&%3badd=; never responded in forum.
Test for $10, purchase for $200 mo
Feb1 – Recommended by post in stack exchange; no response to chat on site; sent message via web form; no responses http://app.greenrope.com/ticket.pl?a942a74f88443f54f89da8bef7cdd930b0c6b010e53023a8; apparently support is not really there.
Looked at page again on 4-5-2017 looked pretty good, concerned about support and cost
order routing through TOS or tradier
options and backtesting
Free trial, no minute bars

Builder for IB, Under $200 annual, IB chat suggested this but said that they do not yet have automation for indicators; This appears to have changed upon examination of the site.
Has options but no automation yet, confirmed via forum 4-6-2017
No options support but is planned according to support call. Free for people who meet minimum trade requirements
Back-test but not minute charts
TOS apparently now has a thinkscript forum which could prove invaluable. A person in this chat recommended http://www.scriptachart.com/services.html and forwarded him an email.
https://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
