Forex Rates: Live Currency Rates at DailyFX

APIs offered by brokers and data platforms

I’ve been looking for a broker that has an API for index futures and ideally also futures options. I’m looking to use the API to build a customized view of my risk based on balances, positions, and market conditions.
Searching the algotrading sub I found many API-related posts, but then when I actually read them and their comments, I found they’re often lacking in real substance. It turns out many brokers or data services that have APIs don’t actually support index futures and options via the API, and instead they focus on equities, forex, or cypto. So here’s the list of what I’ve found so far. This isn’t a review of these brokers or APIs and note that I have a specific application in mind (index futures and futures options). Perhaps you’re looking for an API for equities, or you just want data and not a broker, in which case there may be a few options. Also, I’m based in the US so I didn’t really look for brokers or platforms outside the US.
If you have experience with these APIs, please chime in with your thoughts. Also, I may have missed some brokers or platforms. If I did or if you see anything that needs correction please let me know.

Recommended Free Charting Software, paper trading?

So I've been trying out several charting software such as ninjatrader, thinkorswim, traderview, yahoo finance, TC2000.
Each has their benefits, but what's unfortunate is the delayed data. The delay is about 15 minutes. Also if you're papertrading on thinkorswim it doesn't execute orders based on the displayed 15 minute delayed data, instead it's based on real time data. It's difficult to take a position without defaulting to market price which is very different from what you think it is.
What's also weird is how the price on robinhood is closer to realtime than the various charting software I'm using.I trade on robinhood btw.
My question is there free charting that has better live data service?Are they all behind a pay wall? If so what do you recommend?Is live data service not available on stocks?(ex: thinkorswim has live data for futures/forex, but not stocks. Is that because I don't have any real money in it?)
Update: Thinkorswim you just need to enable live data by going into your account settings on the website and sign up for real Time Nasdaq level II quotes"
