Great Broker, Especially for Options
I think people who have given this broker a bad review, either have not tried them lately or used them for the wrong reasons (trading penny stocks).
I trade mostly options, some stocks, and occasionally penny stocks. For basic stocks and options (including multi-legged, complicated trades), you CANNOT beat this broker for all around value. Before choosing OptionsHouse, I researched a ton of brokers. I wanted the best value I could find. If you trade regular stocks and/or options, I challenge you to find a better valued broker. If you do, please let me know.
For their trade costs, they offer a ton of tools. I didn't dislike their old trading platform, but their new one is super sweet, user friendly, and offers a ton. It's ease to personalize and the executions are very quick. There may be better or fancier tools at other brokers, but you'll pay a lot more, particularly for options.
I used Scottrade for years (and still do for some trades), but OptionsHouse kills them on prices, options tools, and overall value. The only thing I like better about Scottrade is their charting - to me, it's easier to manipulate and looks better.
I've only had to use their customer service a couple times, but it was good both times. They also offer a lot of educational videos/training on options that are very informative. Also, their costs for a live broker are the same as "do-it-yourself."
If you trade regular stocks and/or options, I can't recommend OptionsHouse enough.
