There are many futures trading platforms out there but another one that I like a lot is:
It is produced by Linn Software, offers two major futures trading platforms: Investor/RT and Investor/RT Market Profile. Both of these are available in Standard and Professional editions.
Investor RT has the same features (or almost) of Market Delta (one of the commodities trading software previously reviewed) but at a much more affordable price.

Specialty chart types including Point and Figure, Custom Histogram, Raw Tick, and Three Line Break.

Quotepages, Portfolio Management, Custom Instruments (e.g. pairs, spreads, custom indexes, ratios), News monitoring features are all included.
The Professional Edition has added functionality made possible by the Investor/RT user language, called RTL. The professional edition also includes the advanced volume analysis indicator called Volume Breakdown, It shows the spread on bids vs ask when trades are executed. in a Demand Level of the futures trading system you should be looking for more trade executed on the offer than on the bid (a positive delta).
