    Can anyone tell me which is better for futures trading - Etrade or Tradestation ?

    Is this a serious question? Obviously tradestation would be better (and I don't like TS). Etrade? Does anyone trade futures with Etrade? Why don't you just daytrade your IRA with Scottrade, makes about as much sense.
  3. tradestation does nto appear to be considered all that good a futures broker, they are much for researching possible systems.

    ETrade? Didn't know they did that

    Pick a serious discount futures broker, like interactivebroker, or OpenECry, etc.
  4. etrade does have futures trading.
