Ok, I am having a hell of a time opening an account with tradestation. It's obviously cheaper to do this with a brokerage account with them($99.00 vs. 250 monthly). It's 5 grand to open a brokerage account with them. Which I have no problem sending to them to open up another brokerage account. I just want to use the software to replace what I have now. So I don't mind paying the $99 monthly for the software usage. I don't care to place any trades through them, as I just want to use to software, and I have other brokers. My question is, does anyone here use Tradestaition without having a brokerage account with them?
