    Did Tradestation have proprietary trading desk for stock,future and options or she is pure agent for this product ?

    Author would very pleased for answer.
  2. Afaik they don't run any trading desk. They don't offer
    capability for automated trading in Forex Spot yet, but to
    be functional early next year

    Once they do, i believe Thousands of retail accounts will
    be opened at Tradestation ,because most Forex brokers
    don't offer any decent forex charting and signal automation

    I don't thing even then chance of runing a desk, because
    they are more busy with platform and brokerage developments
