Your original question related to using NT with IB.

There is no free stripped version for use with the IB account, is there?

That's what I've been trying to find out. You can get it through a couple of others, but IB don't seem too friendly with the Ninja people.

Not through the CTCI gateway, only through TWS.

When will you ever offer a platform thats is easy to use? Your platform is one of the most cumbersome I have ever come across. I am trading mainly forex.

I would like to trade major currecies on a good platform that have no technical problems, and with an ECN broker (and some commodities too)?

That may be true, but as Pip Star says, the platform is so off-putting that you must lose lots of potential customers (and I'm one of them). IMO the same goes for the web site, which is a complete mess, especially the way it goes round in circles between the .co.uk and .com versions, then often takes you to a dead end, by which time you're still none the wiser.
