Now Im only paying $1 per contract no other fees! Awesome!
I LOVE ToS! I have been using the software for years, it is definitely the most intense platform I have used. It took me a while to learn the massive amount of features within the software, but come on, the paper account is FREE, no reason not to try it out. Once I got over the learning curve, It was much easier to navigate around and start putting trades on.

I found Sheridan Options Mentoring and started some of their education. Their community is very heavy with ToS users and they have gone WAY past me in their customizations of their platforms. I had no idea just how much customization you can perform in TOS.

I also got access the "Special Sheridan Rate" after joining their education. I am now only paying $1 per contract with no ticket charges! How awesome is that?!?!?

Go check out ToS not TD, ToS. You can download and install the desktop paper trader in 10 minutes, you will dig it!

Far and away the best broker I have every used.
Absolutely fantastic! I couldn’t thank Thinkorswim enough. I have some experiance and having their platform with all of its features is totally amazing and has really made my life easier. Now, I can follow trades and get updates when needed. Definitely fits my budget as I learn to trade new thing. My favorite charting and execution software platform so far.

The platform is very robust and great for charting.
I've used TOS for years. It's had it glitches but overall very reliable. The service is also very good. You can actually reach someone on the phone! The platform is great for trading options and swing trading but it's a little slow when the market starts moving fast so I would say that it's not the best for scalping. I made a short video going over some of the benefits and features of the Charting Platform and you can view that here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMuvU_Vh6_I - I would highly recommend TOS to anyone - There is so much you can do it can get a little overwhelming. Take it slow, learn one feature at a time - There's plenty of support - Give it a try!

ThinkOrSwim has the best tools for options traders
I have traded options at many options brokerage firms. TOS has the best tools for trading options. For example, OnDemand permits you to back test tick by tick, not simply closing prices. There is a huge collection of technical methods (called studies). You can write your own technical methods. There is no platform fee and no fee for minimum trades. This means that beginners can learn to trade using paper money and using a fantastic trading platform. After TD Ameritrade acquired TOS, I gained TD Ameritrade's research and its Trade Architect. With the Trade Architect, I can see quickly a large number of ways to structure options trades. TOS promotes free education. You can listen to daily swim lessons and chat with other traders. Tom Sosnoff provides on YouTube and elsewhere high quality instruction on options trading with programs such as tastytrade. You will find more detailed instruction for free than you will find in some seminars or training programs costing thousands of dollars. If you have an IRA account, you can move it to TOS and trade options in it.

Best charts for trading stocks and options I have found
Open an account with $500 and you get free charts, execution and market data... very good charts, execution is exectly what you need for day trading, and the free data saves me hundreds of dollars every month. The only thing I would complain about is the higher cost of commissions, but thats where they make their money I would assume. I only take 5-10 stock trades each month so its a savings for me and something that a new trader will benefit from in my opinion. very easy way to get started learning and trading stocks. highly recommend.

Great tools, great price
This is my favorite charting and execution software platform so far. It has all the features I need and its FREE with my TD account so it def fits my budget as I learn to trade. the only thing I would improve on is to add more chart types and the ability to plot the entries on the chart, but other than that I think this has all the essentials... hope this review helps!

using Think or Swim
Did some platform research probably not enough. Made a decision to use #thinkorswim for two reasons. I'd been thinking about it as the go to opinion. Then I found site called. tastytrade.com. The main man at there Tom Sosnoff, the originator of Thinkorswim. Always there is a startup company with Tastytrade called #dough. Dough.com. Via Dough you can register for TDAmertrade Account. And I'd advise it. You'll be happy. But decide for yourself. If you'd like more input @phippsjm on Twitter thats me. I work for none of these folks. I have a ThinkorSwim account which I use trading daily.

Best Platform
I just recently switched my account from E Trade to TOS a few weeks ago and its amazing. I've been learning some tricks with it and have been trying to watch more videos. The only complaint is that sometimes its laggy but overall this is an amazing platform.
