    Hi guys

    I was thinking about opening an account with TS but I don't see any newer reviews about the TS software.

    I will be day trading stocks only.

    I would like to know how their execution has been lately and about their software's stability.

    If you use TS please post the pros and cons so I can know if this broker is for me or not.

    Software is very stable. The graphics are good.

    If you are auto trading, the language is a little goofy.

    The execution costs are higher than other brokers.

    I use both TS and IB. All new development is on IB, but I still use TS because I have it running and my data sources are tied into it.

    I wrote my own code in Java to trade IB.
  3. I've been using it for several years for charting and happy with it.

    Last year I was offered free platform and emini & stock data as long as I keep my account open; no minimum trade requirements. See if you can get the same deal.
  4. I've been playing with the 9.0 platform for a few months. So far it's the best backtesting platform I've used, but I'm no expert.

    Thank you very much guys for your replies.

    I'm glad to hear that you all like the ts software.

    I wish you all a great weekend.
