    Hi folks, I'm a long-time day-trader looking to move from ThinkOrSwim but have been looking for brokers that offer a Native Mac app (emulators or Parallels never seem to work well for me).

    It seems like my current options are:

    1. Lightspeed with Sterling LST
    2. Interactive Brokers with Trader Workstation
    3. ThinkOrSwim

    Are there any other that I should be aware of?

    You might want to take a Trial run with Infinity Futures web-based AT pro that will run off any you have internet etc. They also have a PC version of the platform if a trader wishes to download the platform.

    you might find the web-based sufficient for your needs. They will give you a month free trial.

    Isn't ThnkOrSwim based on Java? TWS is Java. Both should run with only Java installed, no need for emulator or Parallels. If you are looking for a Mac C/C++ based app, I think your options will be very limited. That's such a small market.
  5. Hi, I am a full time trader. Motivewave is ok, you can set it up with IB. It is not veyr fast but it's stable. If you don't need a very fast execution it will be fine. I trade futures, it should be ok for stocks also.

    Tradovate has native Mac app... Most of them who supports MAC is java based.
  7. Have you tried using Wine? It’s a pretty decent software that I’m using for running MT5 on my MAC. Out of your list I would choose TOS.

    So does AMP with tradingview charts platform but I was referring to the experiences of USA traders with either company. Which company is more popular? among small account holders?
    And thanks for taking time out to reply. Much appreciated.
