Good customer service
Option express has good customer service. You can trade anything.

Charting sucks on this. It has no live charts or level 2.

This is great for long term investors who want to just buy the stock once and never touch it.

Maybe swing option players. Basically, buy 3 months in and deep in the money. Maybe buy some vertical spreads.

This brokerage is not for day traders.

Optionsxpres is typical for beginning investors.
Optionsxpress charges the average fee to trade on any market- $9.95. Easy to use website with great live chat.

Good option trading platform
I started with option express and stayed with them since 2009. They are very helpful and sportive world wide. This is a huge advantage with them, due to the fact that many other online brokers will refuse to create an account for non US citizens.

Sloppy Execution
Position lost half the value after a stop was put in two days before it was filled. I like the basic charts and some of the other research tools. If you want to research it here that's fine but I wouldn't execute a trade with them and expect to come anywhere near what you put the trade in for.

Great for beginners - not for active traders
Great starter platform and really great order entry on option strategies. However, commissions are quite high and if you do any sort of volume, commissions will eat into your profits.

OX is a great platform
I've been with OX for about the last 10 years or so... sorry I don't have the exact date memorized :)

Certain tools are crucial for my analysis as spread trader, and some things are personal preference (cosmetic). OX tools are great, particularly the trade & probability calculator and the Dragon scan for IV skews. I prefer the layoutorientaion of the risk curve and probability analysis to others I've seen/used. They have also added past earnings to their streaming charts, which is very helpful for a quick snapshot of past reactions if you don't already have the historical data. I'm not a big fan of the charts themselves, but that's personal preference. I do still use them, but have another charting service that I rely on.

Also, in a day and age where customer service is typically anything but... I've never had the phone ring more than 2-4 times before a live rep answered. Being able to dial up the trade desk directly to confirm a strategy exit structure, and discuss it with a knowledgeable option broker is great. I've never had a bad phone experience, other than it being a trade that I goofed and was kicking myself while on the phone.

If you are trading 1-2 contracts, the commissions aren't 'great'. However, 8 - 10+ and they are very reasonable. Further, dependent upon your account size and trade frequency, you can negotiate your own rate (which I have).

The only critique I have is sometimes their earnings calendar doesn't update frequently enough, and I find errors pretty frequently with regard to confirmation of dates. I've also found mismatched company names/tickers. It's a data entry problem from my perspective, and maybe the task is assigned to rookie brokers to cut their teeth? :)

All in all, great platform, great tools, and great support. Make sure to check out their Virtual Trading platform too... great for practicing the strategies as you learn and tweak them!

Great pricing
Opotionsxpress is great on commissions. Overall, i just use charting from a different broker and this to execute trades. Great on the p/l when rates are so low. thank god.

I like their Auto-trade programs
First, the cost per trade is very low, and frankly, that is what is most important to me. Second, they have some pretty good auto-trade newsletters to choose from. I follow a couple of them and have been making $$ every month.

My favorite discount brokerage
Best stock and options brokerage. Their fees are extremely reasonable. Maybe the lowest option fees in the industry? The trade platform is easy to use, not too complicated like TS Ameritrade's. Good site for trading options.
