tradestation

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by mightymight, May 3, 2006.

  1. I have read some complaints on active trading with the tradestation platform. When you speak of active trading are you speaking of a couple seconds or 1 min plus? Any comment on tradestation abilities around a 1 min per trade marker?
    Thanks
     
  2. mightymight,

    For trading stocks....probably okay. I used it several years ago....for stocks. If you Scalp the e-mini Futures....like I do....the Matrix is way too slow....but....swing traders....or even longer time frame day traders....probably okay.

    Most of the problems you hear about in the TradeStation forums....is about the Matrix. And....if you are ever in a trade....and something bad happens....and you need to call TS....expect a Loooooooooonnnngggg wait on hold....that is a big part of their problem.

    Expect 1 hour wait times on phones.
    The good thing is that it's a 1-800 number.
