good broker for TA?

I was just wondering if anybody had an opinion as to which online broker is the best for technical investing. I know a lot of people don't even use the tools their brokers give them, largely because they either prefer their own methods or the tools their brokers' provide aren't that good. I use TDA and I'd say that they are ok, but there are much better charting software packages out there than what they provide, so I just use them for transactions.

TDA = TD AMERITRADE

If so you can use QuoteTracker for free.

Another option could be to open an interactive brokers account & you can then take your pick of Charting packages due to IB data feed being accecpted on most TA software....

Mets started this thread sweet, this place has so many resources it's ridiculous. I found voodootrader on this site, and I use it 10 times a day. That guy is amazing.

Anyway I didn't see it because if you log in to your TDA account, they don't show you any of the partner tools. In fact, it looks like there's a whole host of tools that you can't see when your logged in. Kind of suspicious. Thanks though Bez, I just downloaded it and I'll have to check it out. Now to see if I can get it to run under linux...
