Brokers offering stocks and futures from same account?

  1. The speed, or lack thereof, in Thinkorswim is quickly beginning to annoy me. When markets are fast, the entire platform bogs down and I am left twiddling my thumbs while it catches up.

    Is there a direct access broker that allows you to trade stocks and futures from the same account and has a platform that doesn't bog down?

    Thanks in advance
  2. Interactive Brokers?
  3. IBKR has a faster platform with better execution than TOS?

    Yes, and much cheaper. But the learning curve is steep. No hand-holding.
  5. Other than IB and TOS there is Tradestation. Anyone else use a platform where you can trade both simultaneously?

    For anyone using Tradestation, how happy are you with executions?

    I just clicked one of the open account buttons... Sorry about the mention :(
  8. So no other options outside of the major firms with crap technology?
  9. Just go with IB. Don't over think it. They are very professional and handle their data very well.
