TOS Alternative platform

Discussion in 'Options' started by OptionPoncho, Jan 23, 2010.

  1. I am looking for an alternative to TOS, and have spent many hours looking at a variety of platforms, but always come back to IB and TradeStation. There are many things I like about IB, but the option trading tools seems a little difficult (I cannot find out how to view my 'risk graph' for a 'complex' position like Double Diagonals, Calanders, Iron Condor, etc.. in real time (well at all for that matter).

    I know many other 3rd party vendors like Ninja, Tradecision, etc. allow trading through IB, but I cannot seem to find any 3rd party Option Vendors with this capability either....Any feedback would be gretly appreciated.

    Hi drcha,
    Do they update the prices of legs real time? And do they allow you to beta-weight different instruments onto the same risk curve?
