Screening Futures

Hi all, ... nice place you have here. I recently started trading futures but I am not happy with my setup.

I'm a programmer, and I like using things like ameritrade's screener because i can code my own criteria to look for setups and backtest strategies on stocks. I want to be able to do this with futures as well.

With my new futures account, I'm setup with Strategy Runner. I like SR, but it only works when the market is live, and I can't do much strategy programming/screening/backtesting with it. Technically you can program strategies in c++, but you have to go through a bunch of BS with NDAs and uploading your stuff to their servers.

Any recommendations for software, feed providers, or anything that would allow me to do this type of research?
