A commodity trading software called X-Trader.

X-Trader commodity trading software has always given professional derivatives traders the edge with superior speed, stability and accuracy.
Now X-trader by be very expensive for retail traders, nonetheless, there are some brokers who are offering it for free depending on settings and subscriptions, such brokers include Velocity Futures, offering a wide range of commodity trading software.

To place your buy or sell orders in the futures markets there is hardly any better than X-Trader. They invented the DOM.

The datafeed comes from their company TT and while other programs can use TT (trading technologies) they have to pass true the FIX adapter. Not X-trader, if you want to see your market jump like you never seen markets jump before use X-trader with TT datafeed.

X-TRADER CAN BE VERY EXPENSIVE at $1637 Monthly with all U.S. exchange data & with spreader. As said before there might be cheaper deals with some brokers but it's calculated in your more expensive commissions.

As a commodity trading software X-trader offers:

  1. Trading Simultaneously multiple products and multiple markets from one fully-customizable screen in real time
  2. High-speed connections to the leading derivatives exchanges
  3. Single-click trade execution and order cancellation
  4. Patented MD Trader® vertical market depth display allows immediate reaction to market ebb and flow
  5. Fully-customizable desktop to match personal trading styles and preferences
  6. Support for market orders, limit orders, multiple contract orders, calendar spreads and interproduct spreads, plus specialized order /contingencies such as GTC, FOK, IOC and Stops
  7. Market maker functionality to make two-sided markets on any instrument
  8. A great spreader in case you want to trade legs in futures spread trading

X-Trader pro and X_Trader API. The pro version has features like ability to automatically define and manage intra/intermarket spreads with autospreader, trade on all TT-connected exchanges including CME, CBOT, Eurex, Eurex and specialized order contingencies such as GTC, FOK, IOC and many more

X-Trader commodity trading software and its CHARTING capabilities

X-Study is their charting package X-Study charts the prices with data captured directly from the execution price stream, not a consolidated price stream. It offers

  1. Clean chart design maximizes screen real estate and is completely customizable
  2. Continuous Contracts you can form one seamless chart by splicing several contracts together.
  3. Market profile and Volume profile,.
  4. Displays a traditional total traded volume histogram, or overlay the Volume Delta (net buying vs. selling), color-coded for quick visual interpretationThe TT Cumulative Volume Delta (TT CVD®) indicator displays a running total of net buying vs. selling, providing a quantified view of distribution and accumulation
  5. Charts for futures spread trading

The thing that I do not like is the fact that it does not offer Range Bar Charts or Tick Charts, which I sometimes use.

As an overall, from my point of view, X-trader and X-study from Trading Technologies is the most complete and robust commodity trading software for any type of trader, if you do not want to pay the huge platform fee, try a broker who can integrate that into your commission, making it more accessible.

    First I must congratulate you on a very successful and useful site. It is practical and really helps to trade with confidence. Excellent work. Trust me when I say this...

    I have gone through thousands of sites before I came across your work and indeed it is commendable. I have one question for you. After drawing support and resistance lines on the 30 and 5 minute chart, do you then focus on a 2 minute chart and take your trades based on candlestick patterns?
