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:
- Trading Simultaneously multiple products and multiple markets from one fully-customizable screen in real time
- High-speed connections to the leading derivatives exchanges

X-Trader commodity trading software and its CHARTING capabilitiesX-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
- Clean chart design maximizes screen real estate and is completely customizable
- Continuous Contracts you can form one seamless chart by splicing several contracts together.
- Market profile and Volume profile,.
- 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
- 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?

WOW, very very good materials. I've been studying market profile and supply and demand for about 2 years now. So far, I found the materials in your website to be very generous.
