MetaTrader is free but I don't know if it works with IB.
IT'S NOT WHAT YOU TRADE, IT'S HOW YOU TRADE IT!

Please do NOT PM me with trading or coding questions, post them in a thread.

It isn't easy to connect IB and Metatrader workstation.

You can for example use TWSLink (http://www.trade-commander.org/twslink/twslink.htm) and make own compilation with Metatrader API.
Maybe there are some examples on the net, you should search.

Or you can give a try TradeBullet (http://www.tradebullet.com/).

Or if you are a programmer you can write some complicated solution with use of DLLs and CSV files or database.

Never used Ninjatrader.
I've used SmartQuant software, but I'm interested in automated trading and it's good for automated strategies testing (but I can imagine it could be better for testing strategies that analyze and open positions on many instruments synchronically).
