Would Tradestation be of benefit to me?

    I am a discretionary home based trader. Futures only. The only platform I have experience with is Etrade's TTTrader which does everything I need from a discretionary standpoint: one-click orders and basic market, limit and bracket orders. I have no need for technical indicators, I only use basic 15 and 30 minute HLC charts to get an idea of recent volatility and areas of recent support and resistance.

    If I were to develop an automated system based on my discretionary methods, I know I would need to choose a different platform, such as TradeStation. ... But ignoring that for the moment, would there be any other reason I would want to use Tradestation's platform and/or brokerage service as opposed to what I currently have with Etrade?

  2. Yes it would be beneficial for what you want to do, as in terms of actually making money then no
