Best charting package for Interactive Brokers - IB
 
Hiya,



I'm looking to start with Interactive-Brokers(IB), I need advise on what's the best of the best charting package can be connected to this and whether orders shall is safer to be placed on TWS or can be better to use a third-party connection for placing orders by a third-party application(e.g. Some plugins can connect orders placed on MT4 to be coped to IB's TWS). Then what about charting?
There is a Ninjatrader for 1099USD that can be bought and connected to IB, as I believe it has a data connection from IB's TWS for charting and placing order as well. Also, there is Metastock-R/T that can be bought and connected to the IB by a plugin(that I don't know whats its name yet). But I believe the Metastock-R/T can only do the charting whether by its realtime monthly subscription data packages or it may be possible to use this plugin to connect the IB's data feed directly or through the TWS to the Metastock-R/T platform? Thus can someone professionally advise me on this?

Thanks in advance
Best of luck

For IB related questions futures.io is the place to look for answers. This is retail/MetaTrader country. :-)

Futures.io is a paid forum but good platform for future traders. Very less traders actively trade futures here, most are retail forex traders here.

That's not quite true. It's a free forum with an "elite" section (one time access fee) similar to the famous forex-tsd. But agree to the rest of your post.

You are right. But without Elite access you almost have access to nothing in that forum except couple of threads.

Hiya @emmzett



Thanks. Is the futures.io is the only forum that covers IB related professionally? May I have all the forums list that covers IB if possible, please? And does the 100USD membership for futurs.io will worth it?


Tnx and best of luck

Hiya @Aar



Thanks. Does the 100USD worth membership? I do trade Spot Forex and Futures sometimes. Also is there any broker in the business in size/level of IB or bank-grade that offers non-price-manipulated Spot Forex, without unlimited spikes and unlimited swap, etc etc? I only trade Major pairs in Spot Forex at the moment, thus they are only important for me. ?


Tnx and best of luck

Hiya @emmzett

Tnx and best of luck

Hiya @Aar



Thanks. I agree with you. As all the good indicators and strategies only posted as elite, nothing is on free side useful? Also, how can I be sure they don't take a monthly subscription by complex term ad condition or saving my payment info? Also what guarantee that if I pay the membership fee, the forum don't file bankruptcy in fear future and disappear? lol


Tnx and best of luck
