I started using Ninja Trader to trade futures a year or so ago in order to save some cash.  The lag time during active markets is pissing me off, so I am currently shopping for a better alternative.

Main things I need: Fast data, no lag time on the charting software......lag time in processing the data and building the charts is fucked....cannot have it, and Ninja has too much of this problem.

What do you guys use??? I am seriously looking towards Tradestation.  Anyone here on Tradestation??

What is the advantage to using these software packages.  

I use Think or Swim by TD Ameritrade for everything.  Good one stop shop.  

Are the packages you are looking at signaling software?  I found that heat maps are pretty similar.

rick,

He is using it for trading S&P futures and those packages have much more complex platforms and abilities to create systems to trade the Spoos

Back in the day I rubbed elbows with some Spoo traders but it has been a while, thus why I didnt reply about it prior.

rick,

Didnt mean that in a negative way, rather than SPOO trading platforms are pretty specialized and most dont understand the difference.

No, it's just something I am not familiar with, didn't take it negatively.
