"I've been with them for many years and have tried others like Tradestation, NinjaTrader, Interactive Brokers, SierraChart, etc. There are other fantastic packages with better indicators, more robust coding language capabilities, etc, but if you step back and think about what TOS actually is, it is Read more...
ThinkorSwim is the best platform for option trading
"I’ve used ThinkorSwim(TOS) & ETrade PRO for over two years now. TOS is hands down my favorite platform to use when trading options. It really streamlines the whole option order process (which can be really complex if your platform isn’t designed with option trading in mind). They have free live Read more...
Good for stocks and options. Futures traders, stay away
"Thinkorswim was built around options. So naturally that is what they will be a leader in, I just hate how they advertise ""stocks, options, futures, forex, ETFs all in one spot"" because any real trader knows it is not like that. Stocks/ETFs & options, yes. Futures & forex, not so much. Read more...
great service for any trader
Think or swim offers stocks bonds & etf . great!

It is .. what it is.
"They've become on of the leaders in the industry, personally. But what's one thing they did wrong? Forgot about their customers. Charting? Great. Options? Amazing. Customer service? Yea, they'll find you shares to short. The simple things in life is all I care about. When will we get ra Read more...
Beautiful Platform & Customer Service
"The Platform: The platform itself, is just awesome. There are so many features that work in a 'seemless manner', that you almost overlook how powerful, and at the same time, how easy this platform is to customize and use. I was working with it for a couple of months, and quite happy with the plat Read more...
very solid platform
"Pros: Good tutorials to learn the platform, trade execution, & customer service. I don't trade options but I know they focus a lot on that for their clients. Cons: The platform lacks a few features I would like to see that Interactive Brokers & TradeStation offer. There are some indices Read more...
