Students often ask us about the differences between eSignal and TC2000, two platforms with charting tools that we highly recommend.
TC2000 Gold is what Ross used before switching to eSignal. The reason that he switched was because he found that TC2000 was not as reliable as he wanted--he had encountered a few instances where they didn't have charts for IPOs he wanted to trade. He highly recommends TC2000 for those who are hesitant to spend the extra money on eSignal, since eSignal Signature has many features that he simply doesn't use like Forex, futures, and options data, and so he's paying extra for unused features. One useful feature in eSignal that is missing in TC2000 is that chart data in eSignal dates as far back to when it first started trading, while TC2000's data range is more limited.
However, TC2000 improved their platform over the years and added highly desirable features at lesser cost than eSignal. For traders looking for advanced charting, we do believe that either platform is a good option. It will depend on what you are looking for in your charting platform and what your budget is.

Update: In September 2020, Ross switched from eSignal to TC2000 as a result of technical issues with the eSignal platform.
Warrior Pro members can check out Ross' eSignal and TC2000 demos in the "Trading Tools Demos & Layouts" section of the Warrior Pro Course. At the timestamp of around 24:43 in the eSignal demo, he starts talking about TC2000 versus eSignal.
