    Hi,
    Just wondering what are some of the software(s) used by traders (intraday traders) that offer level 2 market depth as well as charting options?

    I have trialled Spark and now trialling Tradingview but trading view doesn't have complete level 2 (I think it provides level 2 if you are signed up with their broker)

    I've just started exploring this therefore cost of the software is an important factor as well.

    Thanks

    If it helps, it's for a scalping strategy

    Sadly, it's much harder to access level 2 data than it used to be. Data vendors will charge a mozza for it and also institutions can now 'hide' their orders so it's also no where near as effective as it used to be for following order flow type methods.

    BTW I advocate using charting for enhancing the investment process, not 'trading'.

    No advice.
