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!
