Choosing a Trading Patform

    I am currently using TradeStation, but didn't ask (didn't really know what to ask) before opening the account and just deposited some cash and began trading. Now that I've been doing this while I am evaluating my platform and broker to make sure that there is nothing better available for my style of trading.

    1. RJ O'Brien is my broker

    2. Using TradeStation 8

    3. No Front-End software

    4. Using whatever datafeed TradeStation gave me

    5. Place 4-10 trades per day

    6. No idea what Direct Access is...Trade only eminis and thought all those orders where executed electronically through cme.

  2. I like ButtonTrader. It works well for all kinds of trading and the customer service is excellent.

    By the way, I get nothing for saying that. I use the product and I pay for it like everybody else.
