    - ability to calculate option's (theoretical) price, volatility, delta, gamma, theta, vega
    - Best if free. It's ok if not.

    Pretty pricey ...

    $2.95 per contract OR $1.50 per contract plus $9.95

    buy/sell 20 contracts

    ThinkorSwim = $80
    Tradestation: = $40

    5 Similiar trades/month =

    ThinkorSwim = $400
    Tradestation = $200 + $100(monthly fees) = $300

    10 Trades:

    ThinkSwim = $800
    Tradestation = $500

    Adds up...

    When you do comparison, you have to compare the apples to the apples.

    Click all 4 tabs to check the details & here too:
    TOS does not accept order flow so you get better fill/price, they work the trades for you, you can call to place order & ask strategy questions with no extra cost, many free tools, margin are done correctly & tons of free/low cost classes. The calls are answered by ex-option market makers, etc.
